2021 winter fashion trends: Seven looks to work into your closet

This year’s name of the game is ‘comfort and colour’ as shoppers invite more pops of hues in their comfy ‘work from home’ wear. Check out these seven fun fashion trends that we highly recommended you jump on for the upcoming winter season. 

1. Puffers 

These fashion-forward puffers should definitely take up space in your closet. It gives the right amount of personality when paired with simple silhouettes. There’s been a rise in bright electric coloured puffers that complements neutral undergarments. 

2. Knit sets

Oversized knits, matching sets, and pops of colour will always be a timeless winter hit. Knit tops with matching bottoms are fulfilling their duty providing both comfort and vibrance to your wardrobe. 

3. Leisure leather 

Leather is a no-brainer winter staple. Invest in a leather shirt dress that you can layer over a black turtleneck for colder winter days or go for slouchy leather pants that add an edge to any of your winter sweaters. 

4. Checkerboard print

This age-old print is reworked and given a new age twist. Pull out your checkerboard pieces to maximize your looks with eye-catching fun. Try out a coloured checker pairing it with contrasting colours. A pair of checker pants will come in handy too. 

5. Quilting Quilts

Taking on the textile designs of a bedroom quilt duvet, the quilted trend is seen across jackets and skirts. Play with this trend by complementing it with neutral colours and tailored silhouettes.

6. Chunkies 

Chunky heels and sneakers were popular in 2020 but we’ll see more of this moving over into dress shoes and loafers, giving the less casual footwear a lot of relevance right now. The chunky look adds flair and moves away from the streamlined flat wear style that was present at the beginning of the decade. 

7. Matchy-matchy sweatsuits

This trend is most fitting to a lot of our time spent indoors as we social distance. The sweatsuit look happens to give a comfy PJ look that’s also appropriate for your ‘work at home’ schedule. If you’re heading out during the winter season throw on a contrasting coloured coat that hypes up your whole look.
