When you opt for the latest clothing you want to be both stylish and comfortable. With the help of lockdown this past year the clothing trends that have appeared in 2021 seem to have shifted towards the notion of comfort yet style. Now the majority of people would prefer to put on an outfit which is reminiscent of loungewear whilst also looking like you have made an effort. Designers have paved the way for this trend with big oversized jackets, comfy trousers and bold coloured prints. Instead of the subdued, neutral tones we saw in 2020, this year is all about making a statement too.
Instead of squeezing yourself into a fitted jacket, this year the bigger the jacket the better. There is also ‘the Shacket which has proved very popular which is a combination of a shirt and jacket all rolled into one. You get the best of both. It is great to add to a plain top, leggings or trousers for a casual daytime look, or more dressed up by combining with a nice dress and heels. A shacket is certainly a staple item you will want in your collection.
The Sporty Look
Who would have thought that gym or sportswear in general would have made such a fashion trend in 2021. With more people taking up exercise in lockdown, you want to be looking your best when you go out for your run, cycle or trip to the gym. Teamed with technical streetwear you can easily make a bold statement by opting for a brightly coloured jacket, paired with combat trousers and a plain polo shirt when you head out for your next walk.
This has certainly made a comeback. Reminiscent of the 80’s the boiler suit is hot on trend this year. Creating a smart but casual look, the boiler suit is both stylish and comfortable and can easily be accessorized with some statement jewellery and heels to dress things up a little.
Gone are the days where you have to squeeze yourself into tiny tight denim, instead this year if you have put on a little weight during lockdown you no longer have to fret that you will not find a pair of trousers that will fit you. Instead the arrival of baggy trousers this year means that you can go out feeling comfortable, yet looking pretty good too. Paired with a pretty top, some nice jewellery and comfy trainers you have a great casual daytime look in no time.
If the weather is quite warm, boots are too heavy and you want something different to wearing trainers again, then step in the chunky loafers. They are a great addition for a flat pair of shoes if you want a break from heels yet also want something smart, casual. Versatile, stylish and comfy, what more could you want in a shoe this year.
