Romantic and playful with an air of elegance, this season’s wardrobe is a sartorial smorgasbord of prints, fabric and colours. Be it lace or tulle, pastels or rainbow hues, the one simple style rule is that there are none…
When it comes to SS21, anything goes. Reminiscent of its love affair with Sicily, Dolce & Gabbana is taking it one step further by mixing and matching numerous clashing prints and fabrics. Marrying punchy rose prints with polka dots and everything in between, the result is a fantastic frenzy of chaotic colour.
Sitting somewhere between reality and a dream, dramatic free-flowing maxi dresses add a hint of modernity and sophistication to any after-hours rendezvous. Subtle hues meet statement prints at Chanel, where the gown is a real cause for celebration.
Demure is the word du jour this season, with modest pieces being rolled out by an impressive roll-call of brands. Boasting sleeves crafted from 100 per cent silk, make this red-hot poncho your first port of call.
If there’s one key take away from Valentino’s SS21 collection, it’s that floral maxis are back with a vengeance. Full of blooms in varying sizes, shapes and colours, the brighter the better when it comes to this feel-good print, which should be a permanent fixture in your new season wardrobe.
Romantic, feminine and eternally dreamy, the house of Alexander McQueen has long been making style dreams come true with its whimsical designs. This season, try pairing its exquisite sugar-pink tulle two-pieces with a pair of chunky boots for a grittier finish.
From organdie mesh tops to frou-frou tulle dresses, sheer fashion is having a moment in the spotlight . To add a little vibrancy to your look, channel Fendi and layer with a hyper-bright body as a high-fashion way to play with both colour and texture.
The perennial pretty-girl go-to, lace is a timeless trend that never goes out of style. This season it’s going back to basics with amorous silhouettes, lightweight fabrics and subtle soft hues that make this matrimony favourite a hit for any occasion.
From the runway to real life, the feather-trimmed dress is eveningwear’s trend of the moment, adding a playful element to any ensemble. More than just an afterthought, this plume bloom is daring, dramatic and endlessly chic.
As fashion’s movement towards a sustainable arena amplifies, so too does the trend for eclectic prints inspired by the lush greenery of Mother Nature. The most stylish way to get outdoors, embrace a hopeful combination of green and white with a pop of colour thrown in for good measure.
A red-carpet staple, dreamy chiffon gowns across the spectrum from nude to vibrant hues came draped in various iterations this season, complete with billowing skirts and exquisite craftsmanship. Look to Dior for something extra special, where Maria Grazia Chiuri worked her usual magic on whimsical dresses that streamline the silhouette.
