Five fun fashion trends for summer 2021
If there’s one thing that’s certain in the ever-changing world of fashion it’s that with a new season comes a new set of trends to be discussed. Summer is officially here, life is getting back to normal, and an influx of up-and-coming fashion trends was inevitable, one could have never anticipated the direction things have gone in. From ultra flattering high-waisted bikinis to retro-inspired floral prints, this season’s most popular fashion styles are a blast from the past. When it comes to women’s summer fashion trends, here are five to be on the lookout for.
In an ode to an era well known and loved (the 90s, of course!), high-waisted bikinis have made their way into the fashion circuit once again. They’re flattering on all body types, comfortable to wear and, best of all, wearers can mix-and-match pieces, making them a versatile wardrobe staple. Anyone headed to the beach this summer should be prepared to see a large number of high-waisted bikinis making their mark on the 2020s.
Those who grew up tie-dyeing anything and everything they could get their hands on will definitely appreciate this next trend. Dubbed the “pattern of the pandemic”, tie-dye first reemerged early last year during quarantine, and its popularity has only continued to grow. The hype is understandable, as this particular print goes well with just about anything. Fashionistas on a tight budget can even DIY a minidress or tank top to make the perfect beach cover-up this summer.
From form-fitting tennis skirts that can be worn both on and off the court to barely-there skirts designed for a night out on the town, fashion-followers should be prepared to see lots of miniskirts this summer. One can dress them up – or down – and they can elevate even the most casual of outfits. While skirts tend to go in and out of style pretty regularly, one noticeable difference about this up-and-coming trend is that many of these popular miniskirts feature super-short hemlines and low-rise waistlines.
Crop tops have long been a summer staple, and this season is no different. Get ready to see them everywhere, because crop tops are most definitely trending at the moment. They work particularly well with high-waisted jeans or denim shorts, but can also be paired with a leather miniskirt for an edgier vibe. For those who happen to reside in a cooler climate, it’s easy to utilise a crop top as a layered piece and look effortlessly chic while doing so.
Retro-inspired floral print
Did someone say flower power? Retro-inspired floral prints are back in action, and this time they’re hopefully here to stay. A floral-themed blouse, swimsuit or tank are all great ways to add a touch of femininity to a summer wardrobe. As the season goes on, buyers will start to see this print on more and more dresses, including fancier garments designed to be worn to weddings, work, and beyond, and casual dresses that can be worn on a day-to-day basis.
