Black leather jackets are classic, but have you ever thought about purchasing a colorful leather jacket? Creams, tans, and browns are subtle colors to try if you aren’t quite ready to rock teal, red, or orange leather.

Tunics have always been a personal favorite of ours. This timeless style has tons of versatility while being super comfortable. They also look good on any body type and person, so what are you waiting for?
Bold Eye Makeup
If you’ve gotten too comfortable with your makeup routine and are ready to experiment with something new, swap neutral for bold. A classic smokey eye will always be acceptable, but shades of blue, green, pink, and purple may be extremely flattering as well.
Of course, pastels will always stay in style, but this is the time for pale blue in every form from patterns to solid color. We think this is perfect for the beginning of the year, just as spring starts to move through.
The newest way to wear a silk scarf is in your hair. Whether you wrap it around your pony, wear it as a headband, weave it into your braid, or drape it over your head like a vintage movie star, you’ll be accessorized accordingly.
Remember polka dot dresses from the 50s? Whatever happened to those? Well, wherever they went, they’re coming back! Whether you go with a polka dot dress, skirt, or top, you’ll be ahead of everyone else in fashion.
Black and White
It’s time to bring back the classic. This year, wearing outfits comprised of black and white is blowing up. Whether it’s a dress or a white shirt with black pants, this color combo will be super strong. It’s timeless and beautiful
This is a color we can get on board with. It’s a perfect pastel color that would look divine during the spring. Dresses look fantastic in this color or just an egg-yolk colored jacket. Whatever you feel comfortable in, you know!

The ‘80s are coming back super strong, and that means it’s time to dust off your power pants (and your power suit!). These pants say, “I’m in control and ruling it,” and that’s a message we can get on board with, especially considering the last year.
Show off your shape! This year, fashion says that it’s time to ditch whatever is keeping your body from showing, and don garments that are pulled in at the waist and give your body an exaggerated hourglass shape.
We’re not sure where this one came from. Maybe it’s from the ‘50s or ‘80s trends that are becoming increasingly popular as time goes on. There’s always the option of going full-color, Belize-style feather skirt, the neutrals are probably your best bet.
Untraditional Color Palettes
Time to ditch the boring pastels and opt for a more untraditional hue. According to the runway at Fashion Week, new shades are emerging. Tangerine, peach, and pistachio are colors you should be on the lookout for.
Sweaters are going to have a serious 2021 moment. Thin, drapey sweater dresses and knits are going to become a staple in your closet for their effortlessly cool look and super-comfy feel.
Sheer fabric is going to be a staple in many wardrobes in 2021. Sheer tops and dresses lend intricate details to any outfit. Also, you can use them to layer over shirts or skirts for an extra little oomph and flair!
High-Waisted Pants and Skirts
A classic 80s throwback, high-waisted pants and skirts are going to be a big thing in 2021. Trouser pants, leather skirts and more will rock the curve-enhancing shape!
Prairie dresses have been trying to be revived for the last five years, and they’ve finally hit the spotlight – much to our disdain. They’re not our favorite style, but who are we to argue with the experts? At least they’re more comfortable than other fashion trends.
Rather than regular stripes, it’s all about the graphic stripes. These designs have tons of color and feature the saturation that’s going to be huge this year. Whether you wear it as a dress, top, or even carry accessories with graphic stripes, you’ll be totally “in.”
‘80s Shoulder Pads
Yes, shoulder pads are coming back. Some styles are going ridiculously far and creating spikes on the shoulders. Others are going the classic route with powerful yet feminine tops that accentuate your natural waistline.
Small, dainty florals will forever hold a place in our hearts, but we need to leave them in 2020. Instead, look for rosy florals. These oversized patterns are new and exciting. Bright reds, soft pinks, and mossy greens complement stark, white fabrics.
Although we can sometimes be reluctant to embrace our natural locks, 2021 is all about enhancing what we already have. Not only will this make your beauty routine significantly easier, but your hair will thank you. Add embellishments to your hair rather than heat.
Sculpted shoulders and puffy sleeves can drastically change your silhouette. Dresses, blouses, and sweaters with this distinct detailing will keep you looking trendy and bold.
Slingbacks will be the perfect shoe as you transition from 2020 to 2021. The colder months deserve dressy shoes as well, and closed-toe, kitten heels are ideal for frigid temperatures. Plus, they come in a plethora of colors and textures.
Don’t be afraid to over-accessorize. Statement bags, lapel pins, colorful sunnies, square-toed shoes, silk scarves, and mary jane pumps will be huge accessory trends in spring of 2021. Less isn’t always more.
This trend is another questionable one. It’s all about shine whether it comes from vinyl or metallic materials. While sequins are an option, they can look a little childish if not styled correctly. We suggest rolling with natural metals and metallic leggings.
A noteworthy trend of 2021 will be the dramatic collar. Tops, dresses, and outerwear can utilize this fashion craze in order to create interesting and dynamic proportions. The over-the-top ruffled collars will be the latest and greatest neckline.
Elevated, chunky trainers aren’t going anywhere. This footwear trend seems to be anything but a fad. These sneakers are comfortable and versatile. They come in all colors, from neons and pastels to prints like floral and leopard.
