Trends We’re Leaving Behind For Fall/Winter ’21 & What’s On Our Shopping List
Are you still seeing chunky chain bags everywhere? Well, it’s been about two years since they became hot and yes, a lot of high street brands will keep producing them for the masses.
But, if you’re a true blue fashionista and want to stay up-to-date with the current trends, or should we say be a trendsetter, then it’s time to ditch the old and get on with the new. By old we mean the tie dye fad that thankfully isn’t coming to Fall. Or the raffia bags. Or the sweatpants.
It’s time to look ahead and we’re sharing some cool trends that are set to make it big this season. On our radar are the up-and-comers from the Matches Fashion Innovators campaign. Their passion is reflected in their hardwork and we’ll be sharing some fabulous pieces you can shop from them below. The program is allowing them to be paired with established designers and having a conversation where they can learn from the maestros. We’ve selected pieces from their collections that represent the new season trends in a unique way. We love geometric prints and brands choosing color-blocking with an alternative color palette that isn’t mainstream. There’s more in the mix that you can explore and shop the truly unique pieces we’ve curated for you at the end of the blog. Let’s get right into what we’re leaving behind and what we’re rooting for!
Leaving Behind: Floral Prints
Looking To Shop: Geometric Prints
We’ve already done a blog on how geometric prints will rule your new season wardrobe. We saw them on the Fall and Pre-Fall runways and the time has come to invest in some fun pieces. We’re loving the the geometric canvas dress by Charles Jeffrey that divides the dress vertically into two colors and patterns. He is part of the Matches Fashion innovators series where he alongwith other young and emerging designers will be paired with industry veterans to learn from and have a conversation with. There’s also a vibing and vibrant pink jersey skirt by Kevin Germanier that features beaded panels of striking blue, pink and green. It comes with a matching blazer. This “suit” is all kinds of playful and reminds us of something Elle Woods from Legally Blonde would wear. Get just one piece or the pair, it’s a total knockout. Sorry florals and paisleys, this round goes to geometric prints and we can’t wait to get the look going! (Image 37)
Leaving Behind: Sweats & Tracksuits
Looking To Shop: Sparkly Pieces
It’s all about going OTT. Nothing is too much when it comes to playing with sequins and sparkle this season. We have a great piece by Halpern that you can bet will be a hit around the holidays. It’s a multi-coloured, high-neck dress covered in sequins. The sleeves are fluted as is the mini hem and you can add some knee high boots for a night out or your favourite Amina Muaddi’s to keep it shiny head to toe! Another favourite from Halpern is their geometric print sequined jumpsuit. We suggest opening the links below and watching the videos of these pieces being worn to truly give you the idea on how gorgeous they will look! We’re signing off leaving you with these extraordinary designs by some seriously talented people. Don’t forget to read their conversations with established designers like Versace, Thom Browne, Jil Sander, Balmain and many more.
