SS21: A Season of Juxtaposition

Updated: May 3, 2021




Globally, fashionists experienced the new collections differently this past year. Fragmented seasons of juxtaposition emerged as designers strived to navigate, rejuvenate and find levity in the virtual realm that encompassed the fashion week runways of the world.


Opposing influences often possess a shared quality. This season is all about applauding the diverse individuality of today rather than dictating an impossible ideal. It’s about embracing change and approaching life with lively, fresh views.




This is what’s trending, setting the scene and some of our favorite trends to wear right now.


PUMP UP THE VOLUME

More is definitely more! Take up as much space as possible - it’s all about pushing limits and being larger than life. Whimsical and romantic, the pouf sleeve has become a wardrobe mainstay in the last few seasons. The SS21 versions include everything from girlish charm vibes, to a more intense attitude, as billowy, cascading proportions made their debut.

STAGE FIVE CLINGER

Banish the bad habits we’ve all grown accustomed to. It’s time to ditch the sweats, leggings and slouchy shapes- second skins are in! This ultra-flattering trend takes form in all silhouettes. Think stretch fabrics, slinky knits and form fitting garments.

LEVITY

An uplifting wardrobe remix! Joyful, bright colorful pops of colors in psychedelic prints, textures, and vintage inspired graphics are encouraged in all ensembles – especially dresses. Balance prints, paring down accessories. Let your outfit speak for itself!
