5 Fall 2021 Trends We Can’t Wait to Wear

5 Fall 2021 Trends We Can’t Wait to Wear

Fall is almost here! We’re looking forward to cooler weather, light jackets, pumpkin spice and everything else that comes with the season — including the newest upcoming trends! Since our sartorial adventures were put on hold last year, we can expect to see some big changes in style. We’re switching out neutrals for pops of color, relaxed leisurewear for elevated wide legged and slouchy pants and throwing it back to the early 2000s (we did have a lot of fun back then!).

Here are 5 fall 2021 trends that we can’t wait to wear this season. Some styles have been simmering for a few months, waiting for their time to shine, and some are fresh off the fashion presses! 

Super Saturated Color

It’s time to set aside all the neutral colors and refresh your closet with bright greens, punchy pinks and bold blues. Whether you’re looking for an accent piece or full-on monochromatic dressing, there’s a color-rich style for you!

The Return of Y2K

The era everybody is talking about! Some key pieces that are coming back: small handbags, logos, mesh tops, mini skirts, fun prints and flared pants. If you are looking for inspo, make sure to check out looks from celebrities like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, The Spice Girls and Hillary Duff!

Ultra-Relaxed Denim and Pants

We can’t talk about Y2K without mentioning its predecessor, the early and mid 1990s! When it comes to fall 2021 trends, super wide, ultra-relaxed bottoms are back in a major way. Work them into your wardrobe with casual denim, crisp khakis or fun printed party pants!

Sweater Vests

While we’ve been seeing them for a season or two, we weren’t sure if this was a passing fad or a lasting trend. Now, we know that sweater vests have true style stamina! Try them out to smoothly transition your summer outfits to suit chilly fall days.
