2020 wasn’t a great year for style, because COVID-19 limited our opportunities to show off the latest trends in fashion. However, with the expectation that things should start to get back to normal in 2021, you can expect it to be a much different year. That means it’s time to get up-to-date on the latest fashion trends.
Believe it or not, you don’t have to break the bank to ramp up your wardrobe. Whether you’re planning for a relaxing summer or your return to the office, you can achieve the look you’re longing for while staying within your budget. Continue reading to get some awesome style and beauty tips for 2021.
1. Zodiac signs are in.
We often underestimate the connection between spirituality and fashion. For instance, in younger churches, people tend to opt for less formal, more casual clothing than the dress code older people traditionally adhere to. However, as more people become aware of New Age and Eastern spirituality, their wardrobes are changing as well.
As people continue to embrace New Age spirituality, you can expect to see more Zodiac signs on clothing than in past years and decades. In this age of Aquarius, people are more proud of their astrological signs than ever, and you can see it in their attire.
Don’t be surprised to see summer dresses and flowing skirts bearing Scorpio, Capricorn, and Libra symbols when you’re out doing your Saturday shopping. Zodiac sign outfits are a great way to express your personal style and individuality if you’re into astrology. So, whether you’re a Gemini, Aquarius, Taurus, or Aries, Zodiac sign clothing should be in your future.
2. More women are going to become their own stylists.
One of the hardest parts of dealing with COVID-19 has been that it’s been almost impossible to get an appointment with your hairstylist or nail technician. Due to social restrictions, many women became DIY cosmetologists, and you can expect that trend to continue in 2021.
People tend to evolve out of necessity, and there are a lot of women who weren’t professional nail technicians before the pandemic who can do nail art with the best of them now. Due to so many women having to be their own stylists, we may see an increase in people looking for careers in cosmetology and heading to beauty school.
3. Get more in-tune with nature with earth tones.
An old trend that stylists expect to make a significant return is earth tone clothing. In 2021, no wardrobe is complete without earthy blazers and sweaters.
Earth tones are an excellent fashion choice if you want to fashion your outfit based on your career. Navy blue slacks or dark blue jeans make an excellent pairing with Autumn colored shirts, blouses, and blazers. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe for work or play, earth tones will be a hit in 2020.
4. Expect COVID-19 masks to become even more fashionable.
Due to the pandemic, health experts strongly suggest that people wear masks when out in public. Now, masks are as essential an accessory as jewelry. If you have to wear it, you might as well wear it well. In 2020, we saw the tip of the iceberg when it came to masks as a fashion accessory. In 2021, you can expect masks to be even more elaborate and made from fine materials.
5. Pajamas will demand respect.
Not only did COVID-19 dominate the news circuits, but it also greatly affected fashion choices. Masks were a necessary accessory for people when they had to be out in public, but virtual gatherings have made pajamas a legitimate fashion choice.
It used to be that people made fun of rich people for wearing silk pajamas in public, but now, they’re a must-have for fashionistas who enjoy life’s finer things. With pajamas, you can show a little bit of skin or cover up entirely and still be the life of the party‚Äîas long as you’re comfortable, that’s all that matters.
