Sweats and slippers have been semi-permanently shelved, in favour of next-level looks that celebrate the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Acid tones, checkerboard prints, lightweight knit separates and earthy hues are the heroes, ticking SS21’s biggest trends without breaking the bank alongside all-season staples like layerable bodysuits and elevated yet easygoing jersey dresses.
Making the case for perennial knitwear, crochet was seen on the catwalks in the form of everything from shopping bags to micro shorts. Think sheer, but more artsy and chill. Layer our mesh two- piece over swimwear with a bucket hat for a free-spirited, festival-ready look that wouldn’t feel out of place in the park.
Tie-dye is still a serious mood. Revived (again) during the DIY days of lockdown, we’re serving up strong Y2k vibes with marbled separates or a cropped t-shirt and wide-leg jeans, styled with a bandana and super-skinny sunglasses.
Take cues from the Instagram fashion crowd and embrace the fresh iteration of the checkerboard print with our resort shirt and pants. Pair with chunky sliders and swap in our boxy Bermuda shorts when the temperatures rise. We’re totally here for the return of phone charms too, mirror selfies incoming.
Co-Ords & Must-Have Dresses
Moving away from the half-done outfits — party on top, pants on the bottom, as seen in WFH TikToks — of the Zoom-only era, we’re channeling nineties girl group vibes with all-white looks or matching psychedelic sets and chunky sole sandals. Mini shoulder bag, optional. Overthinking your return to society? Maxi dresses are the perfect throw-on-and-go outfit (and all for under £10) with white dad trainers.
