If you haven't read the latest from Who What Wear, or any fashion publication of the likes, you may be wondering what on earth will be trending in 2021. With the year of 2020 coming to a close, the team at #clutchbagsdotcom reflects on the changing fashion industry, the trends of 2020 and the trends to come. We have a podcast coming out soon with our founder Laura Dotolo and founder of V Mora, Anna Livermore where they sat down to discuss their trend forecasts for 2021. It was timely that we put our forward-thinking hats on to do the same up on our blog.
The biggest trend that we noticed in 2020 was the simple act of not dressing up. Rightly so, as we were all locked down in our New York apartments, social distancing and wearing masks, it felt odd placing such a high importance on clothes and looking good during a global pandemic. The act of looking stylish in athleisure and comfortable clothes is way more fashion forward that getting all dressed up with no where to go. So with a focus on wearability, comfortability and monochormatic colours, how are New Yorkers keeping it stylish this holiday season? It's all about the balancing the paired back-ness with accessories. Fortuntely with masks now, you can add a print or pop of colour to any outfit. People are also introducing bolder and funkier accessories, shoes, jewelery and more to brighten up their stripped back outfits.
On that note, it's important in 2021 for us to start to analyse and critique our shopping habits as the industry quickly adapts and changes. Sustainability, local making, climate awareness and ethical shopping is in, so look no further than #clutchbagsdotcom to bring you all the latest in locally made accessories across the globe and in the USA.
