The Fashion Trends to Look Forward to Wearing Next Year

The spring/summer shows were a breath of fresh air with a major emphasis on simplicity and imagination. It reminded us that fashion should always bring joy, and style should always be an adventure, which turned out to be just what we needed as we approach nearly a year of the pandemic. While we may be burrowed under our blankets for a while, here is what we are looking forward to wearing this spring.

2020 getting you down? It’s not too early to start planning for spring.

Patchwork

Dolce & Gabbana’s collection was inspired by their patchwork show in the 1990s, but it had a message of coming together and unity for 2020. Craft-inspired pieces like patchwork let the meticulous construction and details shine and is the perfect look for brisk spring mornings.

Knits

Even designers have leaned into working from home casual, but they don’t want to compromise on style. Knits galore have emerged onto the scene and highlights include the beautiful mint green shown at Proenza Schouler and the chartreuse shown at Salvatore Ferragamo. It’s a relief to know we can get dressed up next summer while staying comfortable.

Exuberant Dressing

Fashion can be a welcome escape when the world is turned upside down. The playfulness of Dries Van Noten, the boldness of Schiaparelli, and the whimsy of Halpern will bring joy to you and your loved ones for seasons to come.

Sheer Delights

Try something sheer this summer and embrace a traditional, romantic look with Christian Dior’s gorgeous blue gown or a more contemporary modern moment with Fendi’s colorful layering.

Luxe Sport

The summer collections really proved that sport and fashion are a lovely pairing. And we saw the perfect hybrids for what we imagine will be an active, outdoor, summer with just enough time to lounge about.

It helps that these collections are to die for (Have you seen the Miu Miu show?), so we can’t wait to trade in our garden party gear for track pants.

Jeans

Jeans are finally on the runway, thank God! Now our weekend wear is officially high fashion and they have never looked better. Valentino’s sheer top and denim combinations (in collaboration with everyone’s favorite Levi’s) has us wistfully waiting for spring, while Xuly Bet’s denim ensemble will turn the sidewalk into a catwalk.

Seaside

Everyone dreams of the seaside in the summer, but now you can have it wherever you are. Nautical themes were all over the runways, from more literal interpretations at Versace to Acne Studios’ stunning take on a fisherman’s net (yes, fishing is now high-fashion too).

Delicate Florals

Florals for spring can be groundbreaking, we promise. Especially when they are delicate, romantic prints like these. Who doesn’t want to live out their Elizabeth Bennett moment in Erdem or go to a garden party in Emilia Wickstead, with a gliding floral train? Sign us up!

Bold Shoulders

To make a statement, look no further than the bold shoulders trend. It’s the perfect balance of hard and soft: look at Givenchy’s leather croc cape and a sheer embellished skirt or Richard Malone’s shoulder statement with a fitted, ruched dress.

Try out one of these trends and raise a glass (or a shoulder) to a fresh start with Spring/Summer 2021.
