As stay-at-home living now becomes the norm, ease, comfort and function are among consumers’ top priorities when it comes to apparel. Recognizing the need for buyers to source products that will drive businesses in 2021, we at Global Sources have compiled a list of the apparel trends that are set to take the spotlight this year.
Make way for the new athleisure – athflow. According to Pinterest, athflow is when “athleisure meets elegance.” While athleisure is often associated with sportswear, athflow is all about “chic comfort” and casual, stylish clothing.
Pinterest predicts that athflow will be one of the biggest fashion trends in 2021, with flowy pants, casual jumpsuits, knit sets and oversized outfits replacing athletic clothing as the new go-to loungewear. These styles of apparel are perfect for lounging and impromptu workouts but still professional enough for the office.
Among the trending searches online include home dress women, oversized outfits, soft outfits, cotton jumpsuits for women, and co-ord outfits two pieces.
Working eight hours a day hunched on a chair and taking part in Zoom meetings require much more than just an exciting top. That’s where power pants come in. These oversized, wide-leg trousers are not only easy-to-wear and comfortable, but they are also versatile and allow for a wide range of movement – so one can go from sitting to going out without changing. Available in knit, denim and vintage styles, these pants pick up on ’80s revival fashion that exudes a chic look anywhere.
A shacket is basically a classic flannel shirt meets coat. It is made of thicker material and is slightly heavier than a plaid shirt but not as bulky as a coat – making it a good outerwear alternative to denim jackets. Shackets come in a variety of fabrics ranging from corduroy to fleece, and can be styled in many ways – wear open, with belt or layers. This shirt jacket trend is on track to be the rage in 2021, so be sure to add it to your catalog and get ahead of the competition!
Sorbet pastel tone
Neon was so last season. As the world is trying to regain a semblance of normalcy, a style trend has emerged, reflecting the optimism and apprehension of this time: pastel and sorbet shades. These colors are the perfect option for summer, plus they suit a variety of skin tones. Blazers, suits, coats, knitwear, dresses and separates in soft and light to dark shades of blue, pink, green, and purple will surely make a refreshing addition to your 2021 apparel collection.
While fast fashion allows consumers to shop affordable and trendy clothing, it comes at an environmental cost. Increasing awareness on earth preservation and sustainable fashion has resulted in upcycling rapidly gaining popularity today. The pandemic has accelerated this shift to greener, more sustainable fashion and strengthened consumers’ demand for eco-friendly products.
