8 Celebrity-Approved Ways to Wear SS21 Fashion Trends

This year, SS21 fashion trends are a little different. Partly due to the change in lifestyle brought about by the global pandemic, fashion has taken on a more whimsical and nostalgic approach, while at the same time prioritising comfort and practicality. From dreamly pastels to voluminous sleeves and noughties inspired cutouts, designers have showcased some gorgeous yet comfy styles this season. Many of these trends are evergreen, and the good news is that a lot of these styles have also been worn by us before. Not only is this season-less approach to fashion better for the environment, but it is also easier on the wallet. So dust off those bralettes and re-invent your wide-leg pants, as you step out, kitted in the latest SS21 trends. From Priyanka Chopra to Deepika Padukone and Ananya Pandey, let the coolest celebrities show you how to wear the trends of 2021.

Bralette Tops

This warm-weather favourite reinvents crop-tops in a more retro avatar. Wear these cute bra-tops while layering for spring, or co-ordinate with high-waisted styles. Case-in-point—Ananya’s fun white eyelet number.

Cut-outs From waist-cutout bodysuits to midriff-baring dresses, showing a little skin is in. This 90s trend is back, and it's 'popping-out' everywhere, from keyhole styles to cut-out sleeves.

Exaggerated Sleeves

Big Sleeves have been around for a while and this SS21 finds them light and billowy in fresh colours, diaphanous fabrics and cheery prints.

Fancy Sweats

Fact: Your sweats are now a wardrobe staple. For 2021, sweatsuits and tracks get a fancy update with bold colours, jazzy prints and formalwear details.

Dopamine Dressing

From bright colours that instantly energize you, to clothes that seem to put you in a good mood the moment you slip them on, dopamine dressing is all about outfits that make you feel happy. Think neons, bright solids, tie-and-dye styles and cheerful prints. After the year we have had (and are having) this is THE clothing trend 2021 needs.

Tie-around Straps

Y2K fashion trends are back with a bang! Swimwear-worthy straps, wrapped around the waist, add a little holiday touch to your tops and dresses this season. Snake yours around your ankles (hello summer-ready wedges!) or knot a cute bow on your shoulders, it's all up to you, really!

Wide-Leg Pants and Jeans

A loose-fit jean is just so much more comfortable than any other pair. Roomy, wide-legged pants are THE style to wear this summer and we are here for it.

Dreamy Summer Pastels

Soft, pretty pastels are in, the more surreal and dreamlike the better. Pair with wispy, painterly prints for a look that floats by on a cloud of style.
