Phew! I suddenly feel summer setting in in Bombay and with the humidity, that is not the most welcome feeling. As this heatwave is experienced in some corners of the globe, wardrobes are switched and cute outfits are dreamt of. It is, once again, time to examine the S/S ’21 trends that are worth placing your bets on.

Strappy Toes

Strappy sandals, flirty long legs and definitely that Pinterest aesthetic we are all aiming for. Say hello to the heel that stands out without driving attention away from your outfit. These A.W.A.K.E Mode ones have been on my wish list since over four months!

Big Shoulders

The S/S 21 trend that has taken over the fashion world year after year. From exaggerated sleeves to big padded shoulders, we are particularly enjoying the oversized boyfriend blazer with this detail. Go from drab to dapper with this 80s pick that will surely become a staple in your wardrobe.

Sustainable doesn’t have to be boring. Introduce some eco-conscious staples to your wardrobe to feel less guilty about your shopping habits and, simultaneously, make the world a better place.

Dad Jeans

Dad jeans aka wide leg jeans. If you follow me on Instagram (shameless plug here), you know I have been utterly obsessed with these jeans since over two years. Yes, I have the support of Chloe, Balenciaga and Paco Rabanne.

Naked Dress

The slinky midi black dress (I call this the MBD) is all the rage this season and I can confidently say that it is a timeless place. We hit the like button for sneaky cut-outs, sporty racer backs and romantic tie-up backs. These Khaite and Gabriela Hearst dupes are worth the dollars.

Face Masks

Consider this a closet constant for another year. Switch your tie dye and embroidered masks for silk ones in neutrals such as black and nude. They appear a lot more expensive and look luxe.

On a budget or do not want to make a long-term commitment to these trends? Reuse existing pieces from your wardrobe to replicate S/S 21 IT trends!

High School P.E.

We have fallen hard and fast for sporty and minimal style this season. Cue track pants, windbreakers and reinvented sweats. This is the most practical trend to invest it right not and I promise, you will love these pieces forever.

Cut Outs

Barely there tops, romantic dresses and thong trousers is every Insta model’s wardrobe favourite this season. I recommend opting for more versatile options that are truly made to last. A little game of skin hide and seek has never hurt nobody!
