10 Fashion Trends for SS 2021

Winter season is almost over, which means now is the right time to take a closer look at the fashion trends for SS 2021 and start updating your wardrobe.

Words By Daria Müller Velasquez


We barely had time to unpack the New Year’s gifts and slowly enter back into the workflow, when the winter season gave way to the most vivid, colorful, and joyful time of the year – spring. This is the time to start making new plans, thinking about how we will (hopefully) spend weekends in Paris, Milan, or London, how the pandemic will be replaced by a new time of openings and unlimited borders, beauty, and warmth. And, of course, to get ready for this, we need a new suitable wardrobe that will relate to all our further goals. 

Today our Staiy fashion editor Daria Müller Velasquez introduces 10 sustainable fashion trends that will not only make your post-quarantine the most fashionable time of the year but will also help make your spring and summer your most memorable adventure.

1. The main attribute of the upcoming season is a minimalist or romantic midi/maxi dress. It can be plain or, instead, lavishly decorated with pretty ruffles and intricate ornamentation. At the beginning of the season, such a dress can be generously flavored by jockey boots or rough boots and an artificial sheepskin coat. In the coming of warmer days, the midi/maxi dress can be worn with both elegant shoes or sneakers. This satin mid-calf length dress by Portuguese brand SIZ is a perfect fit!

2. Massive loafers will be more trendy than ever in the coming spring and summer. Combine them with white socks, as Princess Diana and Michael Jackson loved to wear. We are absolutely in love with the ecological and water-resistant loafer by Nae Vegan Shoes, made from vegan leather and Oeko-Tex certified!

3. As soon as the first warm rays of sunshine illuminate your face, do not forget to bring your sunglasses with you. These awesome eco-friendly sunglasses by UK-based brand KOMODO are a great addition to your SS21 wardrobe; they are created for all those who not only care about style, but also the environment and social responsibility. Made of recycled materials and bamboo temples, they also protect your eyes with UV400 glasses. 

4. In the coming season, it is worth paying special attention to the bomber, because we will take it with us out for a run, shopping, and meeting friends and family. An inseparable SS2021 trend, which can also be safely thrown over your shoulders in the evenings to keep you warm while taking a pleasant walk through the blooming park. This unique linen bomber by a Copenhagen-based brand Tales of Anyday will look super chic with any of your spring/summer outfits!

5.Comfortable boots with wide shins are another crucial wardrobe item for all fashionistas. In them we tuck trousers and jeans, we wear them with dresses and bare legs in spring. This pair of bright vegetable-tanned calfskin ankle boots with a zipper closure and 10 cm heels by the Italian sustainable fashion label SILVIA GIOVANARDIis a great addition to your SS21 wardrobe.

6. So, with spring comes summer hand in hand, and here elegant and classic shoes come to our rescue. Strictly low heeled, we wear them with straight trousers, trendy jeans, or light silk dresses. This pair by Balagan Studio, a brand that was born in 2015 between Warsaw and Tel Aviv, has a clean, timeless style, and a fashionable square top gives them a new vintage touch. Made of soft, high-quality Italian leather, they are flexible and comfortable for long-distance walks. Complete your outfit with a smile, and you will be irresistible!

7. The absolute trend of the SS21 season is the extra-large, soft bag. And with this vegan tote bag by German label  NUUWAI you will never need to carry any extra bags. Made of soft vegan Apple Skin leather, this all-rounder must-have has tons of space for anything you might need, and we love taking it to work, shopping, and weekend trips. ‘Cause we will definitely have too much to do in the new season!

8. A comfortable jacket with three functional patch pockets will not only be the most important element of SS21 but will also make a unique addition for both office wardrobe and casual everyday outfits. This black denim workwear chore jacket, made from soft midweight 223gsm GOTS certified organic cotton by London-based brand VERYAN, will allow you to enjoy the new season to the maximum, contributing to more sustainable fashion industry. 

9. The monochrome asymmetrical blazer is an important trend in the upcoming season. Wear it with high-waisted jeans or trousers, combine it with shirts and sleeveless dresses for a fresh look in your wardrobe. This asymmetric blazer by sustainable London label Trace Collective is made in midweight organic linen fabric grown in Normandie, France, with round coconut buttons. Designed for a smart or casual look, no matter if it is day or night, rock it at the office or at a fancy dinner.

10.And finally, the in-demand trend of 2021 – scarves! Woolen, knitted, silky. This hand-printed scarf by lifestyle sustainable, organic & handmade brand Mia Papa is the perfect statement piece to add to your accessory collection of the upcoming spring/summer season. Hand-sewn from organic silk from Northern Greece, this beautiful scarf made of 100% natural finest silk can be worn in many ways, such as a turban, a top, around your waist, around your neck, or even around your wrist. Just use your imagination and get ready for a new wonderful season of changes!
