2020 is finished, and so are the fashions that characterized the year like tie-dye sweatsuits and cozy pajamas. These still have their place, but for most of us, we are ready to start socializing and enjoying our normal lives again. That means it is time to pull out those outfits you have been saving for a night out on the town, and a variety of other pieces that have been hidden in your closet. 2021 promises to be a great year, and these are the trends you should be wearing all year long.
1. Gender-Fluid Fashion
The days of traditional gender norms are slowly starting to fade away, and that means that gender-fluid fashion is on the rise. Male celebs like Harry Styles and Timothee Chalamet have been wearing gender-fluid outfits on the red carpet, which have quickly been picked up by fast fashion brands. Models like Bella Hadid have also begun to wear suits traditionally designed for men, which have led to a lot of creative looks in terms of streetwear.
2. Blue Light Glasses
If 2020 has taught us all something, it is that eye health is very important when it comes to working from home. Anyone who spends a lot of time staring at a computer screen knows that it can be a strain on the eyes. That's why one of the trends that you will want to adopt is a pair of blue light glasses with a unique frame. Not only will these protect your eyes as you work, but they will work as an accessory to any outfit you choose to wear. Everyone needs a statement piece that ties their outfit together.
3. Vintage Collared Shirts
Collared shirts have never gone out of style, but instead of a blouse or dress shirt, it's time for vintage bowling shirts. These shirts are found in any thrift store, and in a wide variety of patterns and colors that are always eye-catching. They look amazing on anyone, and they pair well with jeans or shorts. The trick to finding the perfect one is to look for shirts from the '80s when some of the louder patterns were printed. These shirts make great conversation starters, which is what we all want to have after spending a lot of time alone in 2020.
4. Colorful Statement Earrings
If you feel that your outfit needs a bit more color, even with the addition of a vibrantly patterned bowling shirt, then add some earrings. We don't mean just any earrings though, you need to add a pair of statement earrings made out of mixed metals, plastic, gems, and anything else that catches your fancy. Choose a pair of earrings that matches your outfits, but also simply makes you feel happy. Everything you wear should make you feel confident and ready to take on the world.
5. Express Yourself With A Mask
Masks are still an everyday reality for most of the world, but the fashion industry has embraced this and begun to produce some amazing masks in terms of design. You no longer need to wear a standard-issue blue surgical mask when you run errands. Instead, select a mask that matches your outfit in a cool material, like silk, or one that has a pattern on it that adds a dash of color to a monochrome outfit.
6. Crop Tops
Crop tops have been around for decades, but edgy crop tops have quickly crept onto the fashion scene. A crop top might seem like something that should only be worn during the summer months, but it actually looks great with a pair of slouchy trousers and an equally slouchy coat. When summer hits, those edgy crop tops can be paired with skirts and shorts. The trick is to find a crop top with some safety pins, rope, or anything else that makes it unique. Fashion is about standing out.
