Fashion Trends 2021

The top fashion trends of 2021 are going to look a little bit different than the trends that we’ve seen in previous years. The defining factor this year is a movement toward sustainability and supporting local designers and local retailers, plus growing interest in the way fashion is produced.

For brands, the sustainability trend means that it’s time to redefine priorities and stick to the timeless proposals that minimize the impact of fast fashion. And for buyers, it means forgoing instant gratification for a more thoughtful, more capsule-driven approach to wardrobes and styling.

Fashion And Sustainability

Fashion and sustainability haven’t always gone hand in hand throughout the past. However, a recent, growing focus on sustainability in the fashion industry discourse suggests a future where this may no longer be the case.

You’ll find the roots of fast fashion, and the start of its environmental impact, in the early to mid-1800s, when innovations in textile processing and production made it cheaper and easier to create and sell clothing on a mass scale. And, while it’s simple to understand the appeal of inexpensive, trend-driven shopping, the overconsumption spurred on by nearly 200 years of fast fashion manufacturing has had big implications for the environment.
