Golden Fashion Trends In 2021

What’s going on in the world of fashion this year? 2021 will be a summer with floral print, long skirts, flip-flops, and tribal jewelry. 

Botanical accessories, funky sunglasses, and neon colors are also making an appearance. And what about nail polish this year? 

Here’s a basic overview of fashion trends for 2021.

1. Skirts

The long skirt is back for a flow-y look this summer. Some of the latest trends are toward a super-long skirt that covers the ankles. Called maxi skirts, these long skirts provide cool circulation to your legs while providing some coverage. 

Moxie skirts are also coming back. These trendy little skirts provide “bottom protection,” so you don’t need to worry about a little breeze! They provide the comfort of shorts and the sassy look of a short skirt. They’re great for being active. 

2. Colors

This summer, the colors are varied, so there should be something for everyone.

  • Neon

Don’t let the idea of wearing neon colors scare you! Neon colors can look quite classy if you put them together right. If you aren’t ready for going neon from head to foot, maybe go with a neon shirt or neon accessories like bracelets or earrings. To give your neon clothes a chic look for 2021, go for tailored styles and neon colors that are not painfully bright. 

  • Floral

Floral print dresses are in this year, creating the perfect hostess look. Floral dresses are also great for classy outdoor dining and shopping. 

  • Black and White

Timeless but making a comeback, black and white, is appropriate for 2021. Black and white is sort of the “go to” combination that designers have turned off and on for years. And they turned to it again this year!

  • White

Just white – especially draped, sheer, flowing white – is going to be hot this summer. The swathed look of the fabric helps prevent that annoying problem we all face when wearing white: stains. 

  • Mint Green

Minty green is everywhere, from pants to cardigans to shawls. It’s a cool-looking color that’s trendy in 2021, and it is friendly to lots of skin tones and types.

3. Shoes

The flip-flop is back, so stock up on colorful versions of this summer classic. Match them with various outfits and be comfortable and fashionable.

Gladiator sandals are also trendy like they were a few years ago. The high, open look is also coming out in the form of cut-out booties. 

Lace is showing up on pumps in 2021, either as a cover or in the form of trim.

4. Nails

Short is the way to go with nails in 2021. “Short red nails” are a stand-by, but summer 2012 will trend toward pastels and natural French manicures. Think neat and trim for your nails in 2021.

Accessorize in Style This Summer 

Accessories can shine in the summer when you’re wearing less clothing and showing more skin. Summer accessories adorn your body and add personality to your outfit. 

Another advantage to wearing trendy accessories this summer is affordability; the right accessories can give old outfits an entirely new look, which is usually much less expensive than buying a whole new outfit. 

So what’s in style this summer? Accessories for summer 2021 are all about fun and shine and a little retro as well. Here are some of the up-and-coming accessory trends this summer.

1. Clutch Purses

Remember clutch purses from years ago? Your grandmother might have a collection of them! If she does, break them out for 2021; they’re back in. And, of course, you can find new clutches for purchase all over the place this year. 

And you’re likely to see suede in pastel colors, like the “preppy” colors of the 80s. Lace is also making an appearance on crutches. Some clutches are decorated with beads, studs, sequins, feathers, and other embellishments, so you’re sure to find one that will compliment your outfits.

2. Tribal Jewelry

The tribal look is in this year. Go for feather-shaped earrings and geometric designs. Natural materials such as feather-shaped clay, stone, or wood beads are an earthy way to pull off this tribal look. Geometric pendants are also hot this summer. For a Southwestern look, go for turquoise and silver.

3. Bracelets

You might be too young to remember how girls piled bracelets on their arms in the 80s, usually of the jelly plastic variety. While the jelly look is not coming back, the piled-on bracelets look are. 

Continuing the tribal theme, 2021’s bracelets are likely to trend toward materials like copper, silver, and ceramic beads and charms. Cuff bracelets are in, too. A timeless, natural look is also coming to the fore in the form of pearl jewelry. 2021 will see lots of pearl bracelets and other jewelry. 

4. Oversized Stones

This year, large gems and pendants are not going anywhere. They are still trendy, but earth tones and natural hues characterize these bold, oversized pieces. 

5. Fashionable Sunglasses

The Funky is in this year. Sunglasses sporting frames in neon colors, with glittering rhinestones, or in fun shapes (like stars) are going to add some fun and funk to the summer. Buy a few pairs to go with several outfits!

6. Ribbons and Cloth

Summer 2021 is likely to include some textures and fabrics, especially ribbon and cloth as necklaces. Strips of cloth, ribbon, and other texture-intensive materials are going to be seen around the necks of 2021’s trendiest. 

Hot Shoe Fashions for Summer

High, tall, strappy, and colorful are all appropriate descriptions of 2021’s summer shoe fashions. And that’s not all glitters; metal toes and natural colors are in the mix as well.

Even clear shoes are showing off this summer. 

Metal Toes: Not Just for Work Boots Anymore

In the old days, metal toes on shoes meant they were work shoes. But now, the trend toward metal toes is not for protection from injury; it’s to add a metallic sparkle to ordinary shoes, especially high heels. And the look of metal toes varies quite a bit, from studded and chunky to thin and pointy. 

Platforms (Remember Those?)

The platform is back this summer! From super-mega to more modest heights, the platform look is coming back in dress shoes. You will even see platform sandals this summer.

High Laces

High-laced sandals are in for 2021. Laces and straps that go all the way up over the ankles are the looks for the season. Look for gladiator sandals and laced-up mini boots. 

Wedge Heels

Wedge heels were popular in 2021, but they are back this year in more muted colors. Wedge-heeled sandals with buckles, ties, and straps are 2021’s version of the classic wedge. 

Pastels and Bright Colors

There’s a general trend toward pastels in 2021 footwear, but some bright colors pop out in mini boots, high heels, and strappy sandals. Some bright blues, reds, and greens are peeking out. The majority of the shoes for 2012, though, are in more muted, pastel colors.


Lace was popping up everywhere in 2021, and shoes are no exception. Lace is acting as an overall covering or as an edging or accent. Black, white, pink, and beige are the usual colors where lace is involved. 


Yes, clear shoes are trending this season, from high heels to sandals to flats. The clear look was introduced in force in 2021, but it’s catching on more in 2021.

This summer’s clear shoes are not necessarily all clear; you’ll often find that just parts of the shoe or sandal are clear. The clear elements are mingled with stripes, straps, and dramatic heels. 

Beach Shoes

On the beach this year, it’s back to flip-flops. All kinds of flip-flop colors are making their appearance.

But flip-flops weren’t the only beach shoe trends in 2021. There are also athletic shoes made of netting for walks or runs along the beach.

Traditional running and walking shoes are featuring net this year, allowing more breathability in an athletic shoe.

Swimwear Trends for Summer

You may think it’s all about the skin you’re showing on the beach this summer, but it’s also all about what swimwear is covering your skin.

The truth is, the kind of swimwear you wear will say a lot about how good your exposed skin looks. So what’s new in 2021? What trends are out there, and how will they fit you the best?

Ruffles: Not Just for Shirts

Ruffles are making a comeback in the fashion world in 2021, and not just in shirts. Ruffles are showing on bikinis and swimsuits, edging top and bottom.

They can show up anywhere, which seems to be the point of the ruffles – you never know where they’re going to crop up. They are nice distractions from the usual sleek swimwear lines, which gives a fun, casual look to the swimwear.


The high-waisted two-piece is back for 2021, as are “boy legged” swimsuits. High-waisted bikini bottoms are not the “granny pants” you might have come to dread. In cute patterns like gingham checks and florals, the higher waist looks tasteful and shapely this year.

Boy legs, which are very low-cut bottoms that go around the upper leg (rather than arching up over the hip), can be found on one-piece swimsuits in 2021.

Another vintage element employed by swimsuit designers this summer is the fuller cup on the top. This style adds shape and curve to the swimsuit and is the opposite of the recent past’s minimal “string bikinis.”  

Crochet Swimwear

The crochet and knitting movement is on, and it’s entered the realm of swimwear. The open-weave look of crochet creates a versatile piece – some crocheted bikini tops or monokinis (monokinis are one-piece swimsuits with cut-out sides) can be worn with pants, skirts, or shorts.

The ruffled look is sometimes combined with the crocheted material, adding a cute, whimsical flair to the swimsuit or bikini. Crochet is also a fashionable and tasteful way to distract viewers from any flaws you want to hide.

You’ll see mostly white when it comes to crocheted swimwear, but black and even some pink are showing up as well. 

The Digital Age: Prints

Swimwear has almost always come in printed varieties, but this year it’s gone digital. In modern, contrasting colors, digital prints are the spirit of the age.

Sometimes you’ll see vintage artwork printed on one and two-piece swimsuits; other times, digital prints mimic textures. Digital prints also give swimwear a sporty look, even featuring zippers on the front of some styles. 

Kids' Summer Fashions for 2021

Here we are in summer, and your child is getting ready to break out their summer clothes. It may be that all the summer clothes are outgrown or just not fitting with your child’s taste and preferences. 

All the latest summer clothes are filling the shops, and, depending on your child’s age, they may have very specific preferences based on what they have seen in the windows. 

Suppose you are not willing or able to spend money on designer clothes. In that case, it’s perfectly acceptable to get ideas from the latest fashions and put together customized outfits with and for your kids. 

What’s the latest trend in kids’ fashions? Here are some of the highlights. 

1. Colors

As with adult fashions, fluorescent, bright, neon colors are in for kids. Somehow, though, the playful, energetic quality of electric colors fits children particularly well. Designers are putting bold, contrasting colors together in a way that’s reminiscent of the 1980s. Kids’ outfits might consist of a bright yellow shirt, electric green pants, and bright pink or blue shoes. 

There are still pastels out there, and some designers are emphasizing them this year, too. Whites with pastel embroidery are in for girls in 2021. 

2. Patterns

Look for checkered patterns for boys this year and floral for girls. It’s trendy for girls to wear bright patterns and blank white, one on top and one on the bottom. In keeping with the contrasting color theme, boys might wear a green and black checked shirt with bright blue or red pants. 

3. Styles 

When it comes to kids’ fashions, simplicity is always appropriate. Kids like to move freely and play, so simple sundresses and tights for girls and tees and pants for boys with comfy shoes are never out of fashion. However, there are some trends this year toward precise design details. 

  • Shirts

Collars are in for boys and girls. Button-down shirts with collars look great over boys’ tees, and girls’ dresses and shirts are sporting collared necklines. Collared tee-shirts, a variation of the classic “polo shirt,” are in for boys. 

  • Skirts and Dresses

Girls’ skirts are colorful this year, especially with stripes. Longer lengths are back not to the ankle, but definitely below the knees. Floral prints and bright solids are also in with girls’ skirts in 2021.

  • Shoes

Solid colored shoes in bright hues are in for boys and girls. Sandals are timeless, but they are not as prominent his year. Flats for girls and lace-up sneakers for boys are trendy this summer. 

Men's Fashion Trends: Summer 2021

In most discussions of fashion trends, men sometimes get left out in the cold (or, in this case, out in the summer heat).

The fact is, there are all kinds of interesting trends going on in men’s fashion for summer 2021, from hot colors and patterns to innovative accessories. (Get ready for a new take on the necktie.)


This summer, men’s fashion trends are heading toward pastels. Reminiscent of the 80s, when “preppy” was in, 2012’s pastels show up on suits, jackets, and even shorts. Men’s clothes are moving away from traditional neutrals and into color. 

Because it’s a kind of new territory (at least for the younger generation), pastels are the hue of choice to “ease” into the world of color. Pastels can even be earthy and muted; they do not have to be bright, candy-like shades. So for men who are a bit uncomfortable with the colorful bit can start with subtle shades of light blue and lavender with a gray undertone. 

Blue seems to be dominating the scene of men’s fashion this summer, pastel and otherwise. Designers have included many blues in their fashions this summer, and blue is a versatile color. Blue can be used to present looks as varied as nautical, military, preppy, classy, dressy, and carefree. It is even comfortable for some men who shun too much color.  


Patterns are taking a couple of paths this year. On the one hand, time-honored camouflage is getting a great new look; on the other hand, colorful patterns like paisley and floral splash across menswear in 2021. 

Camouflage is not what it used to be. This summer, you’ll see camo in jackets, shirts, and even suits. It has taken on a fine quality in dress clothes, but it’s still bold in jackets and shirts. 

Paisley and floral are out in force this season, particularly tropical floral patterns. Pants and suits are covered in flowers, and paisley finds its way off the necktie and onto shirts and even backpacks for men. 


Get ready for a new twist on the neck tie in 2021. This classic men’s accessory is not the tight, neatly-tied adornment it used to be – this year, it’s taken on a looser, more creative, even more, fun look.

Today’s necktie can be long or short and crosses over into scarf territory. This summer, almost any strip of fabric a guy likes can be tied around his neck, from short bandanas to a silk scarf for a trendy yet personalized look.

Trendy Beachwear for Women

When it comes to hitting the beach, many women dread the season of skin exposure. Instead of dreading it, though, why not get in on the latest trends? You’ll probably feel chicer, and you can probably find a trendy look that fits your comfort level. 

It’s not all about swimwear; it’s about beachwear! Here are some of the trends for beachwear in 2021.

1. Ruffles and Lace

Sleeveless tops get a whole new look in 2021 ruffles! Around the neck, on the front, or part of the shirt itself, ruffles are the new look for going sleeveless. Ruffles adorn coverups this year, too, lending a playful addition to a traditional swimsuit cover. 

Lace is trendy this year, too. It appears on coverups and sheer shirts that make elegant covers for the beach.

2. Rompers

Rompers are back, and so are jumpers. These one-piece classics are great to wear on the beach. There’s quite a variety of rompers available for 2021, such as ones with built-in belts or flouncy skirt-like shorts. The colors are trending toward earth tones and blues this summer.  

3. Handbags

In 2021, many fashion designers were aware of the financial pinch many are feeling. So the accessories for beachwear are exceptional; this year, accessories give you a new look for less. Look for bright colors and funky shapes and patterns in handbags this year. 

4. Strappy Sandals and Flip-Flops

The strappy look can cover a wide range of sandal styles. You will find some very high, cork-heeled strappy this year, as well as flats. Wedge heels are in for 2021, too, as are “gladiator sandals” with ankle-high straps. 

And yes, flip-flops are back! Invest in a few pairs and get into the colorful flip-flop trend this summer. 

5. Sundresses

Sundresses are classic beachwear. You can go barefoot in a nice sundress as you walk along the beach or pair it up with trendy sandals for going out. This year, short or long sundresses are in, and so is floral print. 

6. Sun Hats

Maybe it’s because we’re more aware of skin cancer these days – but whatever the reason, the sun hat was making a comeback in 2021. The wide, floppy variety is making an appearance as well, complete with chin ties and scarves.

It’s a great way to help keep the sun off your face and shoulders while you’re walking on the beach, and the chin ties minimize the chance that oceanside winds will blow off your trendy hat!

Travel in Style this Summer

Summer is the travel season, so why not travel in style? There are stylish bags, purses, totes, hats, accessories, and other fashions to help you vacation in style this summer.

Remember that travel fashion needs to be practical as well you need outfits that fit various occasions and destinations. 

Here are some of the latest travel fashion trends for 2021. 

Skinny Jeans

The long, lean look of skinny jeans is in this year. They are versatile, available in many colors, and appropriate for various occasions and events. Earth-tone skinny jeans could be worn on the beach or out for lunch and shopping. 

And don’t let the name deter you; skinny jeans come in all sizes and flattering for various body types. What makes them skinny jeans is that they are close-fitting and cropped; they are the opposite of the baggy jeans that have been in style in the past.

Also, skinny jeans were coming out in patterns in 2021, and patterns can be very forgiving.  


Metallic is coming in this year, so silver or gold handbags make a nice choice. Pair them up with some metallic sandals with wedge heels for a trendy look during your travels this summer.

For the most part, shoulder bags are the style that goes best with metallics, and you’ll be likely to find short-handled bags in metallic this year.

Handbags were popping up all over the place in 2021. Short handles and colors like pink, red, and tried-and-true neutrals. Carrying these on your travels will certainly put you on the right fashion path.

Colorful Totes

Cloth totes have been in for some time, but they are coming out in colorful patterns and solids this year. The tote is an essential and acceptable bag to carry on your travels and shopping trips. It presents a “green” image, too, no matter what color you choose. Because so many colors and patterns are available, you’re sure to find one that coordinates with your outfit. 


Accessories are a great way to add fashionable elements to your travel wear. Neon colors are in this year, so you could wear travel shoes with spots of neon and a matching neon handbag if you don’t want to go all-out.

Plastic lenses rather than metal are in for sunglasses this year, and square or cats’ eyes are the trendy shapes for 2021. Pile on some neon bracelets or other styles of bangle bracelets; arms that jingle with multiple bracelets are in this year.
