If you thought that drab, sweaty, and pyjamas are the words you’d have associated with Summer’21, you have got to get a rain check! How about trendy, hot, joyful, and subtly loud? Yes! With the second wave of pandemic around us in full force, the WFH fashion is getting increasingly trendier. People are experimenting, and how! Barriers have been broken, the lethargy of couch potatoes has been left behind, and people are more than ready to embrace the bright spring and summer.
Let’s look at some of the trends that may dominate this season-
Boyfriend’s? Nah! Your own oversized silhouette
The very famous boyfriend shirt is so passe. Turn on the comfort and glam with oversized silhouettes in your wardrobe, be it the shirts or denim. A spin-off from the regular shirt, cropped at the midriff, is also trending. How about you do away with the long sleeves and go for the shoulder-padded cropped ones? There is even the possibility of giving it an A-line spin and accessorizing it with a wide-waisted belt. As they say, a good shirt should never go out of your wardrobe. Probably the most effortless breezy look to curate as well.
Flowy, A-line dresses to die for!
Think bright colours. Think puffed-up sleeves. Think huge earrings. The dresses are never really out of fashion, are they? But this season, monochrome and flashy colours are in, and so are variations in the sleeves. A-line, cotton, floral dresses epitomize the spirit of womanhood better than any other. Rated high on comfort and uber-chic, this look with a pair of nude heels can be your go-to this season. You can shop for some of these dresses available in a multitude of colours from Power Sutra here.
Knit it up!
Still hungover from the winter? No worries, get out your crochet and knitted wear and be snug and comfortable this season. Great to make a statement, these looks paired with summery partners like shorts, ponytails, hoops, and stylish flip-flops are also perfectly easy to don on short notice. Wear them on tank tops, wear them tight or loose, but wear them bright!
Since the pandemic, the face mask has become an integral part of your wardrobe. There is a style for home and different styles and patterns for going out. There are even fancier ones for weddings! Watch as the fashion accessory game changes, with flip-flops being the design inspiration for many footwear designers. Who’d have thought? And guess what? Bucket hats are back! Experiment with different fabrics and colours, and pick the one you like!
So, put on your innovative hats on and experiment. Because that’s the key to creating your own styles. Experiment, experiment till you get it right. Your looks are your own, they should reflect your personality and make you stand out. Be your own person, you do you!
