The 2021 Trends To Follow To Create Your Minimal Wardrobe

Sofia Coehlo

With a new year comes fresh and innovative fashion. Designers appear to be looking more frequently at social media, street style, and celebrities for inspiration.


In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, the Spring/Summer 2021 shows marked a shift in fashion. We saw a paired back, minimal approach. It was the first in a long time that we were seeing clothes on the runway that looked like they were actually meant to be worn. From unisex designs and pieces to fit all sizes, genders, and generations. We are seeing a great positive change in the fashion industry with more creativity and innovation than ever before. Below are my favourite trends to help create your classic, staple wardrobe.

Old Classics

It’s back to basics with this current fashion trend. From a classic Burberry trench to a crisp white oversized shirt, it’s time to style and restyle your good old classic pieces. It’s all about shopping your own wardrobe this year and falling back in love with the clothes you already own.

The Waistcoat

Blurring the lines between feminine and masculine fashion. The waistcoat is a trend that is sure to continue into 2021. A versatile piece that can be styled in multiple ways. Why not style your waistcoat with denim for a Kate Moss inspired 90’s look. The flattering V neck makes for an elevated contemporary look.

Belt up

This Spring is all about the waist and creating shapes with your silhouette. Belts are becoming more and more popular this season with brands like Dior and Bottega Veneta pairing their wide statement belts with classic coats and dresses. Adding a belt to your look will instantly bring a touch of sophistication while allowing you to transform the pieces you already own and love.

Sophisticated Loungewear

Loungewear is looking more and more luxurious with innovative designers reimagining our favourite wardrobe staples with loungewear fabrics. Think cashmere trousers and blazers crafted in sweatshirt material. Looking polished but still feeling comfortable is the trend that I’m sure you are all most excited about this year.
