A New Year is upon us and we’re ready for a wardrobe refresh. The world may be feeling a little gloomy for now, but with the right outfit we know the Emma Wallace Woman can conquer the world!
That’s why this week we’re giving you some top tips on the SS21 trends to embrace and the ones from 2020 to forget. Handy hints to help you nail the season effortlessly.
Trend To Adopt: Playing Dress Up
Occasion-wear may have been somewhat defunct for 2020, but the spring/summer 21 catwalks were awash with beautifully extravagant gowns and pretty dresses from designers optimistically looking forward to all of those rescheduled weddings and events. Full skirts, tulle, flamboyant prints and embellishment reigned supreme with the likes of Molly Goddard and Jacquemus making a huge impact. We know the Emma Wallace Woman loves to stand out, so this trend is a must! Even if we’re dressing up at home, a little decadence never goes out of style. Get the look with our Blare Dress. With its asymmetric hem and stunning golden yellow shade, it’s guaranteed to ensure you shine bright. For those who want even more drama, our Li Gown with its voluminous skirt and cut out neckline is the ballroom beauty you’ve been dreaming of. Try it in red which has firmly been crowned the colour of the fashion season.
Trend To Ditch: Cycling Shorts
Lycra biker shorts may have been all the rage in 2020 but it’s safe to say they’ve had their moment. Comfort may continue to be key as we step into a new season of uncertainty, but for SS21 there’s a more civilised approach to loungewear with tailored styles stealing the show. Looser silhouettes in shorter styles were everywhere. You can get the look with our Tara Shorts in vibrant red!
Trend To Adopt: Matchy Match Face Masks
Face coverings have fast become part of the “new normal” life we lead and for spring 2021 they got a high fashion makeover with endless designers matching their masks to their outfits. The likes of Alice & Olivia, Collina Strada and Christian Siriano all showcased this style to full effect. You can achieve the look with our unique print facemasks. With an anti-bacterial outer layer and a built-in microfibre filter layer, they will protect you without compromising on your chic credentials.
Trend to Ditch: The Exposed Thong
Now this was a trend of 2020 that was championed by the fashion A-List rather than the catwalks, but it’s a look we’ll be excited to leave behind (excuse the pun!). Celebrities like Kim Kardashian West, Hailey Bieber and Dua Lipa all rocked the low-rise jean and thong combo, but the discomfort and less than discreet feel isn’t one for us. We prefer a higher rise which you can achieve with our Premium Jeans in white, brown or blue. Perfect for a demurer debut!
Trend to Adopt: Relaxed Workwear
Working from home looks set to be the norm for at least another six months so it’s no surprise that comfortable workwear became a hit for the season. Slouchy tailoring and easy to match separates were all over the catwalks. This isn’t about logging onto your laptop in your jogging bottoms, this is an elevated, sleek style that still feels comfy in the softest of fabrics. Fendi, Ferragamo, and Sportmax are some of the brands who included updated versions of classic tailored garments on their runways. Want to nail this trend? Our Patti Trousers are a must have. These wide leg high waisted pants feature a wrap front detail for the ultimate in casual luxe.
Trend To Ditch: Tie Dye
During the first lockdown, tie dye had a resurgence as TikTok creators posted endless DIY videos on the technique. Whilst many brands leaned into the trend, it’s now run its course. For a more current feel, opt for uplifting prints that feel optimistic and inspiring. Versace and Christopher John Rogers showcased mood boosting stripes which you can emulate with our Suzanne Jumpsuit.
Alternatively, many brands looked to a monochromatic palette which felt like a breath of fresh air for the New Year. Go for a sleek black or white look with our Corey Dress which offers the perfect paired back styling to invite a fresh start for the season.
