Before we know it spring will have sprung! The days are getting longer and the weather is gradually getting warmer. Good vibes are on their way and it’s time to start getting your new season wardrobe ready.
After living in loungewear for the most part of the year, we’re eager to swap out our sweats and joggers and jump back into our plus size fashion-forward looks. If you’re like me who loves hopping onto the latest trends, you’ll be itching to see what spring/summer holds and what you can get your hands on. There’s nothing more exciting than opening new parcels right?
We’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up the trends predicted to take spring/summer 2021 by fashion storm.
1. Feel-Good Florals
The hardest working print in your wardrobe. We reach for florals all year round but even more so in the warmer months, swapping out darker hues for a bolder and brighter impact. We’re expecting to see statement florals in all shapes and styles from smock tops and floaty dresses to wide leg trousers.
This Limited Collection blouse is the perfect way to bring your style into bloom. In a flattering smock style it offers extra detail with long elasticated flute sleeves. In a longline length for coverage and comfort, step up your supermarket style with leggings and chunky trainers.
2. Pretty Pastels
Pastels are a whole mood this season. They soften the whole look in dreamy hues from baby blues and lilac purple to minty greens. Complementing your favourite denim and go-to trainers perfectly.
Kill two trends in one with these must-have smock styles. Smock shapes are so flattering for curvy figures with floaty tiered hems that you can wear with confidence. Whether you’re a denim and top kinda gal or reach for dresses on the daily, we just know this is a trend you’ll love!
3. Spring Knits
Don’t pack away your knitwear just yet! Sleeveless knits are taking over our Insta feed and they’re not going anywhere. They’re a staple layering piece that you can pop a long sleeve top on underneath or wear on it’s own on as a statement.
We love this sleeveless knitted jumper our girl is rocking. In a longline length with a sleeveless design, it completes with a high neck. The sleeveless style gives you the option to layer it up or go bare as the temperature creeps up – just what you want in a transitional piece.
4. Light Layering
The biggest trend to enter your outerwear collection and the most used word in our vocab – the shacket. We’re not ready to let go of this wardrobe staple and neither is spring/summer. Styled with a simple tee and jeans, a basic dress, buttoned up with flared leggings – the options really are endless. This season you’ll find them in lighter palettes and monochrome checks to tie your whole look together.

This trend is predicted to be huge this year and we’re welcoming it with open arms. You really can’t go wrong with a classic monochrome print and this gingham dress is giving us all the picnic date vibes. The long sleeves are perfect for giving extra warmth when you still need a bit of coverage, with your favourite smock hem rounding off the look.
6. Baggy Denim
If you’ve been keeping up-to-date with the latest denim, you’ll find the leg styles are getting baggier, wider and even more flattering. We’re expecting to see baggy denim as a key trend this season with our skinny jeans taking a backseat for the time being.
Featuring an emblem patch for a fun twist and extreme ripped detail, these mom jeans can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
7. Chunky Flats
We’ve seen our favourite styles appearing on new in with chunky and platform soles from everyday trainers and Chelsea boots to our trusty lace up biker boots. It’s 100% worth investing in your footwear with styles that you can pair the whole of your wardrobe in. Whether you’re a trainer or chunky boot lover, they can be paired with all your favourite dresses, skirts, trousers and more for day-to-night looks!
Even more styles are expected to come through this season with platform sandals, heels and sliders. Keep your eyes peeled on coming soon for the latest footwear dropping soon…
