The spring/summer 2021 collections are finally wrapping up and per usual, there was a lot to digest. While fashion month looked nothing like it has in years past, the industry as a whole rose to the occasion. Including a few socially-distant shows, tons of stunning lookbooks, and live digital experiences that felt lightyears beyond their time (Mugler, we’re looking at you), some sacrifices were certainly made, but creativity was not one of them. With the natural lack of social media coverage and buzz of the S/S 21 shows, it’s normal to feel completely lost in terms of what went down on the runway this season, but lucky for you, that’s what we’re here to fill you in on.
We combed through all the collections to bring you a comprehensive guide to the most important spring trends of the season. Next year will be flooded with covetable pieces that work into how we want to dress right now—with some fresh twists. That includes everything from luxe house slippers meant to be worn just about everywhere, slouchy suiting to withstand a day of back-to-back Zoom calls, and reimagined sportswear that is destined to be your uniform next year. The best part? You don’t need to wait until next year to shop our favorite spring trends. Keep scrolling to see the ones we can’t stop talking about.
