Craving your next wardrobe buy? Or perhaps you’re planning which items to stock in your fashion and beauty store over the coming months? Either way, you need to make sure it’s on point and guaranteed to get heads turning and fashionistas nodding in approval. After all, your personal reputation or your store’s brand should be associated with the latest in fashion, right?
You can manage being the talk of the town! Ditch last year’s fashion ideas and transform your closet or store into a 2021 version that an influencer or fashion model would be proud of. We’ve got all the latest fashion trends, straight from the runways.
Basic Black Masks
Perhaps this one was to be expected. The world has gotten used to many regulations that became necessary because of the Covid-19 pandemic, so wearing a mask in public is now the norm. But don’t you often find it difficult to pair your mask design with an outfit?
Fashion trends come to the rescue for all of us, because many designers manufacture and promote black masks. Black goes with almost anything and it looks stylish—even on your face. So, instead of buying a mask for every top in your cupboard, keep it simple with basic black masks. Keep one in your bag, your car and by the front door, so you never forget it.
A color that has topped the fashion charts has been yellow. We mean all types of yellow and basically in any form. Since experts say yellow can be uplifting and spark some hope in people, use it to everyone’s benefit. Use a yellow bag to brighten up a dull outfit or wear a soft yellow top to bring some lightness into the world that has seen so much hardship this past year.
Big and Bold Branding
If your fashion store is looking for some recognition then you’ll be happy to learn that big and bold branding is the way to go. From Nike to Ralph Lauren Polo, brands display their logos proudly on their clothing and apparel. This season, make it your goal to learn how to design your fashion store logo onto your clothing items and merchandise.
Black and White from Top to Bottom
If pastels really aren’t your thing, don’t worry. Black and white will always be a smart choice and this season is no different. It’s still trendy to wear these colors and you can make it work in any way that suits your personality:
- Go goth with a mostly black outfit
- Mix up the two with a monochrome approach; have some fun with funky stripes or combining your favorite white shirt and that new black dress
- Make a statement when you enter the room by wearing knee-high white boots; bonus is it can go with almost any other colors you’re in the mood for today
Add Head Scarves
With your color scheme settled on, when you need to decide which clothing items to pick in these hues, don’t forget about the head scarf. After being in lockdown for months, all of us should be making a statement when you venture out. Why not draw attention away from your mask by wearing a stunning scarf wrapped around your head?
It’s All in the Shoulders
Everywhere you look, chances are you’ll see prominent shoulders. This can be exaggerated shoulders in a fancy dress or padded shoulders in a jacket. It’s an easy way to give a basic outfit like your little black dress some new character. So, if you don’t want to shop around simply add this feature to existing clothes and you’ll have ‘the look’.
Get Some Bling
Another way you can attract some attention during a night out on the town is by using eye-catching silver. And yes, why not go all out and get a blingy, shiny dress that’s shimmering from top to bottom?
Top if Off with Bucket Hats
If the scarves mentioned earlier aren’t your thing, there are other ways to add a funky crown to your outfit: bucket hats. These days you’ll find them in all types of designs and colors and they suit many different people’s face shapes and personal styles.
Be Sustainable and Resourceful
Fashion is not only about what your outfit looks like, what cut you choose and which color scheme you settled on. Where the clothing items come from is just as important these days. Of course, it’s important that no person’s basic rights were violated during manufacturing but currently it’s also fashionable to display sustainability with what you wear.
What can you upcycle? Can you transform a dress or shirt from last season by giving it this year’s colors? Or what about turning an old pair of leggings into the sleeves for a dress you’re making? This also gives you the chance to have custom pieces in your closet and feel unique when you walk down the road. Add your own decorations to an old denim jacket, ask a designer to add some new flair, or rent black tie designer dresses.
Are you shocked? Pleased? Excited to try on some of these trends? Luckily this season caters for many different types of looks, so you’re sure to find a way to incorporate it into your personal style.
What do you wish will come back next season?
