For Autumn/Winter 2021 we saw on the ramp some of the most bold and dramatic design trends. From the simplest knit maxi dresses, chic blue accessories and the over the top faux fur hats are some trends that dominated the ramp. This season got us some of the most stylish trends that you could draw style inspiration from and add to your wardrobe. Here are a few we loved the most:
White Knee High Boots
It’s time to go back to the 60s with this classic gogo dancers inspired footwear ie. white knee-high boots. From Hollywood celebs to Instagram models this trend is gaining popularity all over. It’s the best way to take any outfit from boring to ‘oh so stylish’. It looks great with a patterned little dress or skirt, a rollneck, or a pair of colourful leggings. Choose a slouchy style for a relaxed vibe, or keep it sleek and tight for a sexier look this season.
A Pop Blue Accessories
Add a pop of blue and brighten up any outfit! Give your monochrome ensembles a quick update with blue accessories. You can try everything from a Dior blue handbag to a beautiful Marine Serre bucket hat. Opt for all-black or all-grey outfits when styling these pieces. Among the darker colours, the brilliant blue hue will draw attention! Mix and match your accessories to come up with a unique look for your core items.
Black and white doesn’t have to mean boring, it can sometimes turn out to be the most interesting combinations. Designers like Dolce & Gabbana used archive rolls of fabrics from previous collections to create chequerboard patchwork dresses, while Chanel used precise layering to create a new attitude of constraint. A simple and clean style, monochromes are not just perfect for formal wear but you could flaunt them at a date night too! Just remember to accessorize the right way. A broad belt or a pearl necklace can do the trick for you.
Back to Black
LBDs are the classic that would never go out of style no matter how many times we say black is back. The proportion, on the other hand, changes. The omnipresent style is long and appliqué-covered in some seasons, and prim and plain in others. For fall 2021 the trend is all about bringing out the sensual looking mini.
2020 taught us that people would choose comfort every time and that brings us to the trend for 2021 ie. comfort knitwear. When we talk about luxury knitwear for AW21 features skirts, maxi dresses, and two-piece sets. Designers this year have embraced neutral tones in caramels, creams and browns while making layering a huge part of it.
In recent years, logos and monograms have become increasingly trendy, with Fendi being one of the brands to advocate the trend. Versace, Balmain, Loewe, and Max Mara are bringing back the 70s-inspired style in a variety of head-to-toe monogrammed outfits in subdued and monochrome tones for their AW21 collections.
Faux fur is a runway favourite during Autumn Winter, but this year, it’s not just coats with fur. Accessories with fur are taking a lead this season. Furry boots, hats, and scarves were seen at Chanel, Burberry, and Stand Studio. Adding a hint of faux fur in the form of accessories this autumn will make the perfect style statement for those who prefer to keep it subtle.
