Written by Niharika Nayak

While it has been quite a silent year in the fashion world, on account of the pandemic, things are slowly starting to open up as more and more people get vaccinated. Oversized blazers, sleek black face masks, and bold, colorful sweatpants have been dominating the fashion world in recent times. This year, many of the looks have been about comfort, being bold, and super stylish. From Milan to Paris, here’s a list of eleven of the most fabulous styles we’ve seen on the ramps:

1. Oversized Shoulder Pad Jackets

Take a trip to the 80s by wearing oversized shoulder pad jackets. The looser the jacket, the bolder the look. You can rock your shoulder pad jackets with some leather pants or even some straight-leg trousers in neutral colors like charcoal, powder blue, and more.

2. Black Face Masks

When it comes to keeping yourself safe, you might as well do it in a stylish manner. These sleek face masks will match every single outfit you wear and also cover your mouth and nose. You should opt for a fabric that is breathable, and you can even choose one with embellishments if you are feeling fancy. The beauty of this face-covering is that it has limitless styling opportunities that go along with it.

3. Head Scarves

Take some inspiration from the good old days of the 50s and 60s with this sleek fashion trend. Headscarves keep your hair protected and add an exquisite appearance to your outfits. When you’re styling the accessory, you can keep the fabric wrapped under your chin loosely or hang it off the back of your head.

4. Sorbet Pastel Tones

A trend that has continued to dominate the fashion markets this year has been pastel and sorbet tones. These sorbet-inspired colors are the perfect outfits to wear this summer and can suit many unique skin tones. You can choose from cool mint green to soft shades of lavender and even more.

This year, the color yellow seems to have taken over both on the streets and the runways! The trend is relatively easy to replicate. There are plenty of different shades of yellow that you can use to suit every different outfit and style you might be into. For example, if you have an all-white ensemble, you can opt for an amber-colored handbag or a mustard fringed one.

6. Tribal Prints

If you are someone who likes to keep things neutral, then you should try out camel-colored styling. This is a trend from the 70s, and it has gotten increasingly popular in recent times due to its simple yet elegant appearance. You can mix these shades up and style it with a bold colored bottom or keep things simple and pair it with another shade of brown or white or even black. This subtle combination is super flattering and will definitely catch everyone’s eye.

9. Blue Accessories

Why try to blend in when you were always meant to stand out? Add a bright pop of the color blue to your simple outfit and elevate your entire look. From a simple duck egg blue to a chic and fun shade of baby blue, you can pick which shade works best for your outfits. A bright shade of blue will stand out perfectly amongst deeper and darker shades.

10. Fringe Bag

When it is time for you to make a statement, you should let your handbag do all the talking for you. One of the most significant looks we’ve seen this season is fringe bags. The longer your fringe, the bolder your look. Let your fringe hang low, or keep it short and go for a more subtle look. For a more classic feel, choose a dark hue like black or brown but if you’re looking for a more bold shade, try green or even red.

11. Colorful Sweatpants
