Last year this time, we all went into what would have become more than 12 months of spending almost entirely at home. In just a matter of days, our lives changed drastically, and so was our fashion trend. From polished, office-ready outfits, we all changed into relaxing loungewear for our home office. Fast forward to this spring one year later, the lockdowns are loosening and the weather is starting to warm up. As a feeling of hope and optimism is re-emerging, it is an opportunity for us to get out of the lockdown rut and channel positivity into our clothing. It is time to put away those cashmere tracksuits, heavy coats and snow boots. After months of keeping safe at home, we can’t wait about getting dressed in 2021. Nothing feels quite as good as sporting a full, polished outfit for a mood and confidence boost.

The knit dress is the new house dress. Not only are these stretchy dress styles comfortable enough to wear while you WFH, but they can also easily be dressed up with heels and jewelry.
Nothing says spring like bold hues. It is time to bring on the bold colors for Spring 2021. It is hard not to feel uplifted simply by wearing a jolt of color like the shade of bright pink from bubblegum to neon pink. You will definitely stand out in this bright pink high waist weave trousers. Take it even further with the matching blazer.
The ‘80s power shoulder was resurrected last year and is still going on strong. You may have spotted the exaggerated silhouette at Balmain and they might be a bit much for daily wear. However, there are plenty of versatile tees and blazers with just the right amount of padding like this long sleeved shoulder pad tee from Mango.
For this season, the look is all about billowing silhouettes that take inspiration from standard poplin shirts and reimagined in bright shades of pink and orange. The XL shirt is one of the most coveted fashion items in 2021. It is oversized, boxy, intended to be worn loosely, with a dropped shoulder seam to create a wide-sleeve, and typically rests right below the hips. You can even spot the XL shirt done up as dresses. If you are tired of the same old sundress, try out an oversized button-down shirt and a pair of linen pants. The look is breathable, comfortable, and chic.
If the strong shoulder is a little too strong for you, then you may want to try something more subtle like the puff or balloon sleeve. They were the rage last year and are still trending. Slightly voluminous, the puffy sleeves evoke hints of romance. Whether you prefer a billowy silhouette or a ruched puff, there is an oversized sleeve for you out there.
