Next time you need a pop of color, consider adding some green! From lime to emerald and beyond, there are so many shades to pick from — and we’re loving them all!
Staud green faux leather top, $165.00, Nordstrom; Vince satin midi slip skirt, $265.00, Neiman Marcus; 14K Gold plated jelly hoop earrings, $125.00, Saks Fifth Avenue; and Movado green watch, $495.00, Bloomingdales.
Voluminous shoulders and sleeves make for an empowering appearance! Embrace a balloon sleeve or power shoulder for a more sculptural look.
Tie-dye was everywhere last year, especially when it comes to lounge wear. For a 2021 twist on this well-loved trend, try adding tie-dye accessories for a more subtle look, or applying it to your less casual ensembles.
Working from home means we can be more creative with our “officewear.” Try switching a pant for a short (business on the top, party on the bottom…plus no one will see on Zoom if you don’t want them to!) or throwing on a relaxed-fit blazer.
Veronica Beard clay dickey jacket, $595.00, and Veronica Beard clay pant, $395.00, both from Veronica Beard; Alice + Olivia brocade fitted blazer, $495.00, and Alice + Olivia brocade high-rise shorts, $225.00, both from Saks Fifth Avenue
Fun Face Masks
Yes, masks are necessary, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be fashionable. Have fun with yours by matching it to a cute scrunchie or adding a funky chain.
Sheer detailing is a sophisticated way to enhance pieces and create a modern twist on opaque fabrics. And contrary to what you may think, pieces with sheer detailing are no longer just for a night out — they can also be incorporated into daytime outfits!
Trends to Watch Out for in 2021:
After months of living in pajamas and loungewear, it’s time to have some fun with your wardrobe again! Bring in silver and sequins for a 70s, disco-inspired look.
Zoom is only showing our outfits from the waist up, but a statement collar adds a hefty dose of flair. We’re obsessed with everything from oversized lapels to ruffle detailing.
We all love a good monochromatic outfit, and now we’re seeing pieces that consist of a single pattern! Look put-together and on-trend in an outfit made up entirely of one print.
Tight pants, be gone! Wide-leg pants were seen all over the runways recently and are a guaranteed fashionable — and comfy — addition to any wardrobe.
Modular style is becoming all the rage as trendsetters turn to functional fashion. Dress more efficiently this year by using clip-ons to easily carry your essential items.
Fendi canvas leather utility belt bag, $1690.00, Bergdorf Goodman; Christian Louboutin patent leather Airpods Pro case, $370, Neiman Marcus; Clip-on faux leather earbud holder, $25.00, Nordstrom; and Leather belt bag, $148.00, Nordstrom
We’re loving the shape that shirring can give silhouettes! Clothing with shirring under the bust and at the waist creates a more feminine look that is super flattering, not to mention comfortable.
