Fashion trends are emerging from fashion runways to our social media feeds at an ever-increasing rate. Still, somehow, we find ourselves with those Kim Kardashian inspired bike shorts we ended up wearing only once at best.
So, if you're a cold-weather lover and curious to see which trend is worth following and which you should skip, get ready to update your wardrobe with these top 6 winter must-have essentials for 2021 and more importantly - how to wear them.
Puffy Sleeves Tops. Also known as the strong shoulder, the puff sleeves trend is back this season, and it's here to stay! This crazy flattering shape is going to add a statement to any of your outfits. For this summer, update your silhouette by going for puffy sleeves tops in light neutral colors. As the sleeves are voluminous, make sure to balance them out with something more fitted. Focus on distressed straight-leg jeans or a cute mini dress. One thing is sure: this trend is your first must-have for this summer. Spotted on Jessica Simpson, Kendall Jenner, and Katie Holmes.
Color Trend: Neon. Get ready to see this eye-catching color everywhere you look this summer. Neon has never been more prominent, especially in green, yellow, and orange. And this season, you're going to enjoy these bold, bright colors more than ever.
There are a few ways of doing neon—doubling up can be done by rocking the neon top and pairing it with a neon bottom. Stick to colors that are the same from the top and the bottom or go with different colors to create a fun summery vibe. You can also mismatch your neon items to create a more retro style. Another way to rock neon this season is by adding a touch of it into your outfit with solid colors like white, nude, or grey. Either way, enjoy this trend and experiment with it to create your own personal statement. Spotted on: Hailey Baldwin, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian west and North West, and Bella Hadid.
Crossbody Phone Chains. It's no surprise that crossbody necklaces made it to our list. Leather strap, metal sling, or round woven cord, celebrity stylists are obsessed over this hot new trend, so be sure to grab your favorite looking strap and own the look too. This season, this care-free item is going to be more popular than ever and will go perfect with just about anything you already own in your closet. You can layer it up with your handbag, or simply hang it crossbody for a comfortable yet super stylish chic look and feel. Spotted on Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift, and Alessandra Ambrosio.
Sheer Fabrics. You probably already guessed sheer fabrics will make it to our list. Cos, what's summer without showing a little bit of skin? Translucent fabrics are currently trending and can be worn in a modest way or in a tad bit more daring way. What is fantastic about sheer fabrics is that they are perfect for layering and allowing your skin to breath while enjoying the hot summery weather and soaking up the sun. We expect this style to pop-up on everything from tops to evening gowns, but no matter how you wear this trend, you can be sure it'll be on point. Spotted on: Alexis Bledel, Andrea Boehlke, and Joey King.
The Bra. This is by far the item of the year. If you ask yourself how the bra can be the item of the year when it's so trendy to go without a bra at all, meet the modern way to wear a bra! The bra is no longer underwear - it's a wear! The bra is free for the world to see, so don't be afraid to grab your favorite bra top and leggings topped off with a blazer to rock the trend! Spotted on: Kourtney Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, and Heidi Klum.
