From mesh pieces to groovy patterns and diamanté details – we’ve spotted more trends for your SS21 wardrobe. This week on Instagram Beyonce gives us a memo on how to add some bling to our look, Saweetie brings up-cycled fashion into the limelight and Kylie Jenner shows us how to work mesh into our post-lockdown going out ‘fits.
In a maxi side split dress by Alessandra rich, T-cut Jimmy Choo stilettos and touches of diamanté – Beyonce is bringing back timeless details. A nod to the 00s, with a crystal embellished choker giving us major Destiny’s Child after party vibes. In a close look at accessories, Beyonce wears earrings and angular sunglasses to match which tells us that you can never have too much bling.
Sustainability is cool and Saweetie’s Frisk Me Good up-cycled set proves it. She took to Instagram in a snow pants co-ord entirely re-worked from an Aladdin-themed sleeping bag, paired with the ‘Guava Ice’ Jordan 4s and a Miu Miu crystal-embellished chain belt. Fashion is moving in the right direction with lots of eco-minded designers taking creativity to the next level and making it relevant.
Another step towards sustainability can be rooted in the move towards wearing vintage, Anastasia wears a re-worked Jean Paul Gaultier set from his ‘Psychedelic Faces’ SS2000 collection. The brand behind this piece is Yuris Market. Both stylish in its high fashion roots and trending with vibrant patterns making a return to the limelight. Yuris Market’s work is one-of-a-kind, so grab yourself an up-cycled piece while you can. We’ve sourced the rare dress below in all its original glory – and the splashes of blue, orange and yellow are perfect for SS21.
Tinashe took to Instagram in an ethereal look for her ‘Love Line’ music video. The outfit is very butterfly themed, with a knitted co-ord that’s part of the unreleased S/S Blumarine collection. The top is embellished with an intricate butterfly design tying together her Butterfly belly chain and Sugar Thrillz platform heels. Being the insect of spring and with the resurgence of y2k – the details are everything. The dreamy lilac colour palette is a reminder of how pastels are in, and the look is complete with a pair of vintage Dior visor sunglasses.
When it comes to patterns – the groovier the better. Avani wears a pair of marble print trousers which give a huge nod to the return of 70s silhouettes. She paired the piece with a cute, cropped polo shirt by Cider and the Maison Chateau Rouge Jordan 1 Mid trainers – making it street. Note the colour coordination, with shades on the sneakers matching effortlessly with her top. Putting extra thought into your palette this spring can elevate any look.
Cut outs are one of our favourite trends this season because of how versatile and unique the designers behind them are. Eyes Rodgers wears a piece by Erys Studio, the dress has an amazing asymmetric silhouette with a leg holster detail. She has paired the dress with a pair of La Moda chunky knee-high boots and when it comes to footwear platform has definitely made it’s return. This pair is embellished with buckle details and tattoo prints – bringing an edgy aesthetic to the look.
Kim Kardashian is Cowgirl cool in a pair of brown suede flares and a co-ordinating figure-hugging corset. If you’re ever caught in a going-out top panic this spring, keep the corset handy – the silhouette is timeless and just about matches with everything. Kim paired the look with a cross pendant and croc-print patent strappy heels.
Aside from groovy marble prints and floral patterns, the cyber dots are also trending this spring. From their origin in 1995 at the Jean Paul Gaultier fall runway, this year they’ve made a comeback – even the Brit awards earlier this week used the pattern as a central theme at the show. Matcha wears a mesh co-ord set from O Mighty which is a vibrant sunset ombre colour.
If you needed more inspiration on how to incorporate the mesh trend into your going out looks this spring, Kylie Jenner wore a neon Otto Linger set and we want to steal the styling. Paired with the Amina Muaddi open toe satin heels in a co-ordinating shade of yellow, transparent bangles and a matching Otto Linger bag. We love how experimental designers are getting with their mesh pieces, this piece is very artistic with brush-stroke like patterns in shades of yellow and green.
If there’s one way to sum up the trends of SS21, Wuz Good has it down to a T – pattern play. The streetwear influencer took to Instagram in a Ragged Priest patchwork piece that features a combination of pastel floral and striped themes. Clashing in the best way possible, she paired the trousers with a monochrome stripped knit jumper and neon green shades by Akila Eyewear. The look is bold, bright and boujee.
