2021 Fashion Trends to Add to Your Capsule Wardrobe

In 2021, we’re seeing some of the same chic outfits from 2020, along with flashbacks from the 70s and 80s and a couple of new pieces thrown into the mix. Check out the top 2021 fashion trends to add to your spring and summer capsule wardrobes.


Marvela Black White Plaid Long Sleeve Shacket($98)

If you’ve never heard of this versatile piece of women’s outerwear, 2021 is the time to take the plunge. Somewhere between a shirt and a jacket, a shacket provides just the right amount of added warmth for spring days and summer nights while remaining wonderfully light and breathable.

To add the shacket to your list of 2021 fashion trends, combine this piece with your favorite basic tops, belt it over a monochrome dress, or wear it open over any other springtime outfit. Once you start to experiment, you’ll soon fall in love with this versatile piece!

Trench Coats

Violetta Camel Short Trench Coat($88)

For 2021 women's fashion trends, we’re all about statement coats. A welcomed carryover from the trends in 2020, we’re seeing the trench coat rise again to the top of the charts. When selecting a trench coat for your spring/summer 2021 collection, the details define the look. Whether it’s an extra-large lapel, unusual texture, or chic waist tie, look for something a little out of the ordinary to ensure the perfect complement to your look.

Faux Leather

Tamari Black Faux Leather Jogger Pant($78)

A love of (faux) leather doesn’t stop with your outerwear. This texture-loving craze is taking over women’s casual bottoms as well. To rock faux leather pants along with some other 2021 fashion trends, pop on a contrasting knit-sweater or some wild animal-prints on top, and complete that 70s vibe with some strappy stilettos and statement earrings.

Oversized Button-Downs

Gavyn Edgewater Long Sleeve Button-Up Frayed Hem Shirt($98)

Are you tired of borrowing shirts from the boys? 2021 fashion trends have you covered. Reimagined for a feminine silhouette, the oversized button-down has taken on a distinctly new form. Relish TENCEL™ dresses, button-ups, and tops with interesting hemlines, classy roll-tab sleeves, tailored patch-pockets, and feminine prints. For 2021, we’re all about the oversized look, so don’t shy away from sizing up and even styling your button-up shirt as a dress!

Big Jeans

Amandine Calva Paperbag Pant($92)

Did we mention that 2021 women's fashion trends include a heavy dose of sizing up? Get on the “oversized clothes” bandwagon with a pair of oversized jeans! Whether it’s the flared cut, paper bag look, or wide-leg jean that gets you inspired, these jeans are the essence of cool—and super comfortable to boot.

While it may have been completely unexpected, the lockdown has helped us to appreciate clothing that’s a little (ok—a lot) less form-fitting and this trend is one that we expect to continue. So slip into some wide-leg jeans, an oversized shirt, and a trench coat or shacket and enjoy these homely comforts on the street.


Kameron & Shona Purple Yellow Marble Set ($98)

With everything that’s happened in the last year, a splash of color is just what we need. One of our favorite 2021 fashion trends is the return of tie-dye. For 2021 women's fashion trends, we’re seeing decidedly contemporary tie-dye loungewear, activewear, dresses, and shirts with designer-worthy marbling and effects.


Pearlie Café Latte Sleeveless Turtleneck Top($78)

For those who prefer something a little more subtle, women’s casual tops in nature-inspired colors could be just what the doctor ordered. Find beautiful simplicity with buttery hues like taupe, ivory, latte, and brown. Pair these with classic blue jeans or dress them up with trousers.
