Winter Trends Offer Eclectic Mix
Fresh off the runway, 2020-2021 winter trends are very eclectic. All decades have been called into action and are ready to serve a look back through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
What’s so unique about this year’s fall/winter trends is that no trends are off limits. Different, bold articles can be worn together. From florals and studs, plaids and polka dots — it’s a game of opposites attract. The juxtaposition between fringe and monochromatic outfits is something exciting to see, and there’s truly something for everyone.
Speaking of fringe, it is making a statement on jackets, boots and handbags — the best spark to add to any outfit. You’ll also notice chunky boots, like your Dr. Martens from college or slouchy boots from the ’90s, pair well with the monochromatic trend of white on off-white, beige on camel, gray on dark gray. They add a funky finish to a simple and clean silhouette.
What I’m really excited with the latest trends is the fact that you can be trendy without running out and spending a lot of money. A lot of this style is already in your closet. I’m such a pack rat because I’m always holding on to treasured items hoping they will make a comeback, so now is my time. Not only is it more affordable, it’s also good for the environment, because if you’re not a pack rat like myself, you can go thrift shopping and find all kinds of items that hit the mark. You can find one-of-a-kind pieces but also shop sustainably. The fashion industry is one of the worst on the environment, so I get excited when I can help the environment and be on trend.
