10 Exciting Beauty and Fashion Trends for 2021

* Sponsored post  


The year 2020 is fast approaching its end, making way for the following year's new trends. Fashion experts say there's a lot to look forward to when it comes to clothing, shoes, makeup, and accessories, and they're not just carry-over trends due to the derailment caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

 

So, if you're thinking of shopping to load up on essentials for your 2021 style arsenal, rounded up below are 10 beauty and fashion trends to consider.

 



1. Soft, Candy-Colored Eye Makeup

 

Pale blues, mint green, soft pinks, baby chick yellows, and other soft colors will be all the rage in 2020, especially for the spring and summer. These eye palette hues are more approachable for everybody — even those new to wearing makeup won't have trouble applying them to bring life to their face.

 

Makeup artists say the best thing about these refreshing hues is that they are best applied using your fingers for a simple yet lovely wash of color on the lids.

 

2. African Tribal Clothing

 

For 2021, there will also be a lot of bold fashion, and African tribal clothing will be at the forefront. Vibrant blocks of colors, geometric patterns, voluminous silhouettes, and ethnic prints are the way to go in keeping a wardrobe exciting and stylishly versatile.

 

Afro chic clothing such as long skirts with a variety of patterns, statement tops, and structured dresses are just some of the pieces that women should consider investing in. These items have amazing functional and style mileage. You can wear these to any occasion for a standout attire.

 

3. Men's Makeup

 

Supermodel Naomi Campbell raved about the bubbling trend of men's makeup in 2019, and it's going to come in full force this 2021. Other big names in the fashion industry say it's about time for men's makeup to break boundaries and become a norm.

 

However, unlike women's makeup, stylists point out that men's makeup, for the time being, will be focused on presenting a more polished look. For example, quite popular among metrosexuals are the multipurpose mascaras that they can use to define brows and facial hair, as well as clean-up the hairline and conceal greys. There'll also be more men using face powders and concealer sticks to create the look of flawless skin.

 

4. Funky Socks

 

Fashion experts claim that stylish legwear will be a "thing" for 2021 as well. A lot of people will be using funky hosiery and socks to liven up their outfits. Not only that, but there will also be more shoe and legwear coordination tricks to make the trend applicable to any style.

 

Some of the funky socks and hosiery that will surely make it to fashionistas' wardrobes are vertical striped stockings and socks that have a punkish vibe, mismatched pairs, fishnet and sock pairs, knee-high argyle socks, and loose, slouchy socks.

 

5. Standout Headwear

 

Many project that head fashion will be strong in 2021. There will be more hats with ornate details and avant-garde designs, headwraps that go perfectly with African tribal fashion, and jewelry for the head (tiaras and head chains).

 

A lot of fashion vendors already sell these, but there will be more next year. You can also expect a lot of folks to take the DIY approach (which is bound to be easy since a lot of hobby stores offer kits) and create their own one-of-a-kind headwear.

 

6. Modest Fashion

 

Fashion lines created for modest wearers will likely boom next year, and they will boast more modern interpretations of traditional clothing. This was evident in the Jakarta fashion week, where internationally trained designers introduced modest pieces that still provide adequate coverage but have eye-catching silhouettes and textures.

 

In 2021, expect modest fashion to cease to be just for a specific audience with its innovative construction and more flattering shapes.

 

7. Retro Hues

 

Retro colors will be the top picks for the following year: lemon yellow, pistachio green, coral pink, lilac, blue mint, and combinations of these hues. Designers will be using these shades in profusion for their basic pieces such as skirts, suits, socks and shoes, trousers, and bags. You can likewise expect these colors to be used for accessories and even nail polish.

 

For sure, you will enjoy these retro hues because they work incredibly well with neutrals. Plus, you may find a lot of clothing in these colors from your parents’ and older relatives' closets.

 

8. Decked-Out Face Covers

 

Medical experts say that the effects of COVID-19 will linger well into 2021. Therefore, you can expect new designs or styles of protective face covers. Many high-end brands are in the process of elevating the look of face masks and protective shields. This comes with the understanding that a lot of women are sad that wearing lipstick has become somewhat irrelevant due to these unusual circumstances.

 

Some of the decked-out face covers that you can already buy are scarf face masks, silk face masks with brooch enclosures, and hats and hoods with built-in face shields.

 

9. Boiler Suits

 

Boiler suits are quite en vogue now, but they will continue to be until the next year for both men and women. This utilitarian item of clothing is comfortable, yet it offers an exciting variety of styling possibilities. 

 

Lightweight options are perfect for layering, especially during the cold months. Accessorize strategically, and it will look office-appropriate or high-fashion for a fancy evening affair. One of the most recommended, high-fashion ways to style boiler suits is by tucking the pant's cuffs into strappy footwear.

 

10. Structural Sleeves

 

Lastly, structural or statement sleeves will be popular for a long time, especially with African ethnic style asserting its power in the fashion realm. Big bell sleeves, layered and ruffled sleeves, puffed sleeves, and mushroom sleeves — all of these will be used to elevate basic style pieces such as white blouses and knitted tops.

 

 

Those are the 10 trends to keep an eye out for in 2021. The hope is that, by then, restrictions for spending time outdoors will have eased significantly, and everybody can freely go to places and be their most fashionable selves.
