It’s been a long year—with most of us cooped up in our homes alternating between loungewear and pyjamas. As we bid bye-bye to winter, see some light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel, and look forward to warmer months ahead, it’s time to think about what to wear this Spring. Which trend is hot enough for your wardrobe?
Drawing on inspiration from the newfangled virtual fashion runway shows of New York, Milan, London, and Paris, here are some noteworthy Spring fabrics and colours to look out for:
Flash Some Skin with Edgy Cut-Outs
This season is all about cut-outs. Whether it’s your gowns, sundresses, slippery silks, tops, or sheath dresses, cut-out offer a curious edge to your outfit. It’s sort of playing peekaboo by flashing glimpses of your skin.
You can decide to be subtle small quirky holes or daring with revealing cut-out around your waist or above your chest. But whichever style you chose, brace yourself for some funky tan lines.
Bralettes are Back
Bras are this Spring season’s top du jour. Several designers believe that this year is all about having fun to counteract the gloom and doom of the pandemic. And what’s more fun or playful than bras as standalone wardrobe items?
Dare to be adventurous with anything from rhinestone-covered bralettes, flirty 50s designs, printed styles, to plain minimalist colours. These stomach-clenching tops can be paired with suits, matching maxis, or high-waisted wide-leg trousers, among other combinations.
Make a Statement with Wide-Leg Trousers
Retire your sweatpants, leggings, cigarette pants, and skinny jeans this Spring. From cargo pants to 80s-style high-waisted designs, wide-leg trousers are now all the rage. The roomy trousers are neither streamlining nor curve-hugging—but they ooze elegance.
You can shop the trend on affordable online collection or high-street fashion stores. And since they’re more of statement attires, wide-leg trousers shine best when they are in action. Talking of shining…
Glitter – It’s Time to Shine!
When is the last time you sported sequins? Well, this is your time to shine! Louis Vuitton, Isabel Marant, Balmain, Paco Rabanne, Chanel, and Valentino all agree that glitter is the bona fide trend for this Spring. Think sparkly trouser suits, sequined cut-out tops, metallic silver gowns, and statement bags. The trend is as glamourous as it is relaxed.
Playful Sorbet Pastel Hues
Bring out the fun with dessert-inspired pastel tones. Dive into the rainbow galore of swanky baby pinks, pale sunny yellows, relaxing baby blues, and ice mint greens.
They represent the ‘warm aesthetic’ of spring/summer and they suit nearly every skin tone—making the trend one of the chicest wardrobe choices for months to come. Sorbet pastel hues perk up nearly every outfit—including dungarees, trouser suits, maxi dresses, tops, and even bags.
