The much-awaited New York Fashion Week just came to an end and we are sorted with the wearable and chic styles showcased on the runways. The New York Fashion Week trends brought into the limelight some of the fashion rulebreakers for Spring 2021. The Spring 2021 runways showcased the inspiration taken from the ordinary and were then transformed into designs extraordinaire. Fashion’s rules were deconstructed by Social Work, Maisie Wilen etc and the transgression made it all the more happening. For the upcoming season, we have trends that are practical, functional and can be the perfect pick for your WFH (work from home) routine. Here are the New York Fashion Week trends that perfectly sets the mood for Spring 2021.
1. In love with leisurewear
We are not done with the leisurewear fever this soon. This trend is staying here, thanks to the New York Fashion Week trends. The creative heads styled the ‘mundane’ with gowns or casual co-ords to give it the style transformation that we all wanted. Ever thought the sweatpants will make it to the big league?
2. Innerwear or outerwear?
Adhering to the narrative of underwear as outerwear, the New York Fashion Week trends showcased a major take on this trend. Referred to as “Dress Undress” by WGSN, the Spring 2021 runways brought to the forefront the corsets, bralettes, laces and satin bases. Think the dainty bralettes overshadowing the ribbed dresses.
3. Cottagecore fashion
Reminiscence is all set to hit the Spring 2021 wardrobes keeping with the New York Fashion Week trends. For people wondering what “cottagecore fashion” stands for, this is more than just a visual aesthetic. “It romanticizes rural country living and the activities that come with it”. From the dainty prints that seem to be taken from the 70s furniture, to the puff sleeves and statement collars, the trend redefines “elegance”.
4. Fun and functional
Fashion is embracing the aspect of utility and it’s every bit glam and comfortable. The NYFW trends showcased the blend of function and fashion in harmony. Designer like Adeam and Private Policy brought a softer appeal to the facet of utility in fashion on the Spring 2021 runways.
The practical aspect of fashion is here to stay for a while longer, stretching definitely to the Spring 2021 trends.
