As a new season approaches, what better time to update your wardrobe? There may still be snow on the ground but there’s no doubt Spring is on the way. If you’re eager to leave your winter staples at the back of the closet for a while, you can get a head-start by revamping your wardrobe with pieces that are perfect for Spring. For inspiration, take a look at these top tips and trends to dress well in Spring 2021.
Get Relaxed in Denim
There’s no doubt that skinny jeans are here to stay, but they won’t be a core element of your Spring wardrobe. Forget drainpipe cuts and ankle-skimmers because a relaxed fit is what it’s all about in 2021. If you’ve been rocking loungewear (and not much else!) over the past few months, transition into relaxed-fit jeans will be simple and stress-free. Pair them with a loose t-shirt or button-down shirt for a casual look or add an oversized blazer for a more formal twist.

Stick to Layers
Although warmer weather is certainly on the way, it’s not here yet. Spring temperatures can vary quite dramatically but layering your outfit will ensure you’re always dressed for the elements. Adding a chunky cardigan or light bomber jacket to your Spring outfits is an easy way to combine comfort and fashion. Perfect for chillier evenings or blustery days, you can incorporate layers into any look to create the ultimate Spring outfit.
Escape with Beach Fashion
Top designers were inspired by ‘escapism’ when creating their Spring/Summer shows, and who can blame them?! We could all use a little escapism after a stressful year, so make the most of what beach fashion can offer. You’ll see plenty of bold colors, vibrant patterns, casual beach bags, and espadrilles on the high street this year. Even if a holiday isn’t on the cards this year, you can look fabulous during your staycation when you embrace a little beach fashion.
A Spring 2021 wardrobe isn’t complete with a little infusion of the beach and what summer will hold, right?
Maximize Your Budget
You don’t need an unlimited budget to revamp your wardrobe; you just need to be savvy about where you shop at what pieces you buy. Many retailers are looking to kick-start the new season with sales and outlet offers, which means it’s easy to find on-trend discounted shoes, clothes, purses, and more. When you focus on accessories, you can embrace the latest trends without replacing your entire wardrobe, which is ideal if you want to update your look for Spring 2021, without blowing your budget.
As the flowers begin to bloom and new plants start to take root, there’s no better time to incorporate florals into your style. From relaxed, flowing blouses to tiered dresses and skirts, you’ll find an array of floral prints on the high street this season. With endless patterns and colors to explore, there really is something to suit everyone when you make florals a central element of your Spring style.
Look Cute in Cut-Outs
After months of wearing comfy loungewear, now is the perfect time to show a little skin and up the ante when it comes to your style. Cut-outs are all the rage this Spring, whether you’re shopping for an LBD or a rib-knit polo neck. Look out for cut-out details at the neckline if you want an easy-to-wear version of this fun trend. You’re going to need the perfect dress for your first post-lockdown social event, so get ahead of the pack and find your perfect LBD now.
Embrace Brighter Days
As the sun begins to shine, you can count on Spring trends to brighten up your wardrobe too. Neutral palettes are out this season and bright, bold colors are back with a bang. If you’ve always wanted to rock neon pink, now is your chance. Alternatively, you’ll find soft yellows, rich magentas, and deep oranges are popular in fashionable circles this season. If you want to inject a little color into your wardrobe but you’re not quite ready to embrace neon, you’ll be pleased to know that sparkling silver is also a major trend for Spring 2021. Add a metallic tee or graphite blouse to your outfit and you’ve got the perfect addition to your Spring outfit.
Try Slouchy Tailoring
With many people slowly making the transition from remote working back to the office, you’ll be looking for ways to update your work wardrobe. If the novelty of wearing pajamas for work meetings has worn off, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a whole new trend in formalwear to look forward to. What’s even better is that it isn’t too formal.
Slouchy tailoring is in this season, so keep an eye out for wide-leg trousers, easy-to-wear knits and mix and match pieces. Flowing silhouettes are the order of the day, which is ideal if the thought of giving up your trusty loungewear is causing anxiety!
Wear Statement Sleeves
The trend of statement sleeves is set to continue in Spring 2021, and it will probably still be around in the Summer too. When a trend really makes its mark, it’s well worth embracing it, as you can wear it for longer than usual. For special occasions formalwear, look for puffball gowns and dresses or blouses with billowing sleeves and trench coats with casually gathered sleeves. When you’re dressing casually, relaxed shirts with gathered sleeves or oversized cap sleeves are ideal.
