We know the Emma Wallace Woman always likes to stay ahead of the game and, with the AW21 Fashion Weeks storming our Zoom screens, we’re giving you the inside scoop on the key trends you should be wearing to showcase your superior style credentials.
Here’s the trends that ruled the runway…
Voluminous sleeves and various takes on billowing styles have reigned supreme for many seasons, but the AW21 shows were filled with the most extravagant and oversized pieces. A truly statement silhouette, the likes of Roksanda, Molly Goddard and Osman showed our longing desire to reclaim a sense of hedonism and showcase a look that felt bigger and bolder than ever before. If you’re looking to add a touch of volume to your look then a bold shoulder is a great starting point. Try our Lance Jumper with its oversized sleeves which are perfect for luxe layering. If you’re ready to go all-out then our Dungaree Set with its full skirt is the perfect piece to show you have your finger on the fashion pulse.
Grown Up Florals
Florals for spring? Ground-breaking…In the words of the iconic Miranda Priestly we know florals are a failsafe, but for AW21 the trend got a tweakment with a feel that felt more grown up. A far cry from the chaotic and abstract prints showcased in previous seasons, this year things were more stripped back and low key. One flower was repeated throughout the look and in one size. Yuhan Wang, Erdem and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi all let their collections bloom with these refined and aligned floral prints. If you’re eager to grow your own, then our Mayumi dress with its dark and decadent winter flower power pattern is the perfect way to get the look.
Back To Bralettes
Nensi Dojaka, Emilia Wickstead and Yuhan Wang played with peek-a-boo styles as they ditched the loose fit of lockdown to showcase a seriously sexy line up of bralettes. Peeling away the layers, black bras and crops added a level of glam we’ve all been missing. Perfect for a date night or drinks with the girls, this basic building block of your wardrobe will help you make a statement as soon as lockdown lifts. Steal this catwalk style with our black sequin bra top which comes with our Dungaree sets. The perfect chance to nail two trends in one!
The Return Of The LBD
At Milan Fashion Week, Valentino showed us how clothes can be the stuff of both resilience and romance by offering up jet-black minidresses that were ready to make up for lost time. Featuring a punky, anarchist touch, Dolce & Gabbana and Tom Ford also rocked some serious LBDs that had us ready for our emergence post lockdown. Steal the style with our reversible Georgina Dress. Strapless, fitted and chic, it’s the ultimate piece to celebrate in…when the pandemic permits of course!
Ear Candy With Clout
Nothing quite lifts an outfit to a new level like a statement earring. The catwalks rocked a variety of ear wear, from the structural to the whimsical. We loved the playful puppy inspired pieces at Acne, the two-tone at Proenza Schouler and the magical metals at Etro. Add some ear envy with the Astrid & Miyu Pearl Large Hoop Earrings for a dose of glamour or go textured with some sparkle courtesy of our Astrid & Miyu Mystic Star Hoops in gold.
Now you know the score, who’s ready to copy the catwalk? With your own flair of course! Remember, every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway!
