10 March, 2021

The days are getting longer, temperatures are creeping back up and the first buds are flowering. So, let’s look at some of the trends to take us into Spring 2021.

Spring into Fresh Fabrics

Whenever the weather warms, we get more playful with our wardrobes. But this year, we’re dialing that energy up to 100, with pretty fabrics that pack a punch and comfy mood boosters to give us the feels.

  1. Lady in Lace
  2. Lace is the epitome of feminine style and delicacy. And it’s one of this season’s favourite fabrics, with designers including Dior, Fendi or Giambattista Valli showing how to use lace for a chic look in frocks, shirts, skirts and more.

    Here at Lookiero, we’re all about creating a versatile wardrobe. So we’re going for bright-toned tops and blouses that you can dress up or down, depending on your choice of accessories.

  3. Spring Disco
  4. A collective yearning to return to parties and events has seen a sequin and glitter avalanche sweep this season’s catwalks. It’s all about dressing for the life you want, right? Disco aesthetics will reign supreme this summer but in relaxed and comfortable silhouettes, with Chanel and Vuitton leading the way.

    How to Wear Sequins

    Let’s take this classic evening attire and make it work for us while the sun’s out. Tone down the sparkle and get comfy with knits, hoodies and tees. The perfect blend of shine and comfort.

    SS21 Colours

    Bright and joyful, spring/summer 2021 colour trends highlight our desires for flexible, comfortable shades that can work year-round while also providing pops of colour to keep us happy and uplifted for the rest of the year.

  5. Illuminating Yellow
  6. This Spring, let’s light up our wardrobes and chase out the darker winter tones. Friendly and cheerful, you can mix yellow with other sorbet shades as a bright accent to our spring wardrobes. Spark dreams of far-flung summer sun with collections from Prada, Etro and Sportmax.

    How to Wear Illuminating Yellow

    We’re all about the details. The touch of colour that effortlessly and elegantly elevates your look, without the need for accessories overload. We like bikers or blazers, to brighten the most basic of looks or a bucket bag to liven up your office wear.

  7. Raspberry Sorbet
  8. Energise your Spring wardrobe with a world of fantasy and bold vitality. The perfect jolt of colour to spark up your season with Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Chanel showing the way.

    How to Wear Raspberry Sorbet

    Basic pieces with simple cuts and silhouettes work well as you can let the strong colour speak for itself. An airy midi-skirt or V-neck jumper can bring an undeniable optimistic vibe to your day-to-day.

    This Spring’s Prints

    We’re seeing a clear shift from edgy, street styles toward a greater desire for femininity, freedom and creativity. All of it bringing forth a wave of bright florals, careful detailing and exotic tropicals.

  9. Let’s Get Psychedelic
  10. The classic ‘DIY’ print has crept onto many Spring catwalks just in time to fill our wardrobes with swirly colours and relaxed vibes. Embrace your inner hippie with flowy kaleidoscopic dresses á la Gabriela Hearst and more understated and relaxed kimonos from Dior.

    How to Wear Tie-Dye

    Come on, you know you want to give it a go. Start small and choose a classic-cut shirt in a jolly colour. Or if you’re ready to just jump on in, go all out in a maxi-dress for head-to-toe tie-dye. Groovy.

  11. Opposites Attract
  12. At the other end of this season’s print spectrum, is the timeless and minimalist black and white. A classic among classics, brought to the fore thanks to Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit. From the no-fuss, elegant cuts and silhouettes of Port 61 and Balmain, to Dolce and Gabbana’s loud and daring checkerboard patchwork dresses. This Spring, it’s checkmate with black and white.

    How to Wear Black & White

    Amid last year’s uncertainty, black and white was a safe bet. But here at Lookiero, we’re stepping out of our comfort zone and mixing this duo differently. Pick prints such as animal or gingham, or go with a slogan tee.

    SS21 Key Pieces

    Give your body some breathing room with this Spring’s easiest and breeziest pieces.

  13. Maxi Dresses
  14. In one of this Spring’s most romantic proposals, designers went all out to bring us dreams of floor-sweeping frocks and floaty silhouettes for future weddings and summer nights. Sheer styles over at Alberta Ferreti were the most sensual proposals, while Etro bet big on boho chic.

    How to Wear Maxi Dresses

    Let these dresses speak for themselves. Accessorise with cowboy boots, strappy sandals or summer wedges for an easy glamorous air.

  15. Wide Trousers
  16. Skinny-jeans lovers: let’s leave 2017 and move on, baggy is back. Long lockdowns and working-from-home weariness is seeing us shun constricting clothing. You can see this look everywhere from Vuitton, Chloe to Jacquemus. March boldly into extra movement, comfort and undeniable elegance.

    How to Wear Wide Trousers

    Wear a fitted or cropped top to slenderise your figure. While we love the baggy look, it’s not one to streamline your silhouette. Pick pieces in neutral tones or earthy shades for best results.

  17. The Eternal Romantics
  18. Romantic undertones are bubbling up this Spring with feminine pieces full of delicate detailing. Take a look at Erdem or Isabel Marant with their bows, puff-sleeves, flowers, sheerness and lace. A perfect balance between femininity and sex-appeal.

    How to Wear the Romantic Trend

    Fall for the flowy button-up blouse, it’s the piece that best embodies the trend. You can go full on floral or ruffle it up. Or for a more subtle take, look for sweet and light details on sleeves and necklines.

  19. Minimalist Magic
  20. At the other end of the scale sits the resurgence of 90s minimalism. Plain and minimalist as seen on Hermes and Jacquemus or the clean-cut suits of Jason Wu or Fendi, minimalism is here to stay. Say ‘where have you been?’ to practicality and versatility paired with an undeniable sensual undertone.

    How to Wear the Minimalist Trend

    Let your most sophisticated side shine with simple, on-trend pieces, just in time to give our wardrobes a bit of a spring clean. An eye-catching faux-leather skirt or an oversize blazer in a sorbet shade will work wonders.

I’m finding your site amazing ! Such helpful tips and to see what’s trending keeps you current. Looks as if I need to let my skinny jeans take a back seat . Is the boot leg cut still fashionable?
