Comedic genius Robin Williams once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying let’s party!” And although we might not be quite at that stage, things are looking a lot brighter for all of us. As we emerge from our lockdown cocoons and take our first step towards tentative socialising, it’s definitely time for a wardrobe review. So, in this article, I thought I’d share some spring fashion trends for 2021. We may not be able to hit the streets of Chichester for a personal shopping experience just yet. But you’d be amazed at what we can achieve together online. My Spring Style Boost is a brilliantly cost-effective way to dip your toe into my online offering. And if you’d like a session tailored specifically for you, I can do that too. Read on for all the details!
Spring Fashion Trends, 2021:
My Spring Style Boost is the perfect way to explore your wardrobe must-haves for the warmer months ahead. I’ve scheduled two dates 18th and 24th March. The online, interactive sessions last for two hours, and you can secure your space for just £27. During these events, I’ll be sharing:
- Spring fashion trends for 2021 and where to find them
- The hot colours for Spring and Summer to update your look and give you a ‘feel good’ boost
- Tips to help you update your wardrobe with just a few pieces. It’s not all about buying new; I’ll show you how to discover and re-energise some gems you may already own
- Some new and fabulous brands that offer something different while supporting local (including Chichester), sustainable, or independent companies.
To give you a taste of what’s to come, here are three spring fashion trends that are really blooming in 2021!
1 – Power Up Your Shoulders:
Channel your inner Melanie Griffith in Working Girl with a return to the power shoulder! As we know, fashion is a cyclical process with things coming round again – so watch out for shoulders pads appearing – in tops and knitwear as well as jackets!
Some of us don’t necessarily need any help to bulk out this area, but if you are looking to balance a wider bottom half, this is a great look to go for.
The more extreme versions of the boxy jacket from Zara (above left) and shoulder-padded t-shirt from Uterque (above right) are great for those who like to make a statement. Or take a more subtle approach with a fresh take on the classic blazer with this denim version from Penny Black (below left) and a piqued shoulder, elevating the Breton top from Boden (below right).
If nothing else, the bolder you go, the more space you’ll have around you to socially distance!
2 – Going Dotty for Spots:
Polka dots are a classic print, but they’re also a spring fashion trend for 2021. This season, a variety of colour combinations and scale or prints abound. This navy and white bold spot blouse is a great example of a larger scale print that makes a statement versus the more subtle and small-scale abstract spot on the cream jumper. Both are from one of my go-to British brands, Sosandar, and at the moment, you can get 20% off with the code SMILE.
Unlike a leopard, you can change your spots to suit your mood! You may well find you already have something spotty in your wardrobe so that you can give it a new lease of life this season.
3 – Colour ‘You’ Happy:
The Pantone Colours of the year for this year are grey and yellow – representing Resilience and Optimism! I love this combination – it seems fresh and perfect for spring. As the brightness and warmth of the yellow, and the lighter grey may not suit all colouring, you can tweak the shades to suit you…
A light blonde like Reece Witherspoon here will look amazing in these two colours. Someone who has stronger, richer colouring like Octavia Spencer would be best in a deep charcoal grey to give a bit more depth.
If you’d like to discover more spring fashion trends book your ticket to a Spring Style Boost (either on 18th or 24th March) . I may be based, close to Chichester, but these events are online, so, you can join from anywhere in the U.K. or even from overseas!
Fancy your own stylish and fun ‘girls night out’ (no quizzes in sight!) – I can offer you a personalised tailored session on a date and time of your choice for you and your friends.
If you’d like a personal shopping experience to prepare you for leaving lockdown I can help. We may not be able to hit the streets of Chichester, or beyond just yet. Instead, I’ll help you navigate the online stores so you don’t end up drowning in returns labels. Or, if you’d like to plan for when lockdown eases, I’m now taking bookings for face-to-face personal shopping from mid-April.
