It seems like celebrities can pull off just about any fashion trend. Given their status, it’s no wonder you’ll often see them wearing over-the-top, impractical outfits or looking overdressed for a coffee run.
But when they do dress more practically, celebs offer some serious style inspiration. From Kylie Jenner in Sid Neigum to Bella Hadid in Marc Jacobs, here are some of the high fashion trends worn by celebs that are perfect to adopt for Spring.
The New Pink
With Spring just around the corner, nothing screams Spring more than adding a pop of color to your style. This season, the millennial pink that dominated our grids has been replaced with a new hue of pink. The new iteration, a cooler, bubblegum-inspired hue, feels like the perfect contrast to the browns and greys you’ve likely been wearing all winter and might reflect some optimism for the year ahead. It’s also the perfect color to add to your wardrobe for spring 2021. Follow Kylie’s lead and let the pink do the talking by pairing it with neutral pieces and strappy sandals.
Not a new trend, by any means, but tiny ’90s-style bags are still having a moment in the sartorial choices of celebrities, seen on the arms of some of fashion’s most fabulous like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Beiber, and Zendaya. Take after Adelaine’s styling of the Fendi Mini Baguette and try pairing a printed bag with a monochromatic ‘fit. A Baguette bag will spruce up any outfit and will be a staple in your closet for years to come. We’re all about investing in timeless pieces from Fendi .
There have been plenty of iterations of faux-leather separates, but the trend is still going strong. Faux-leather can instantly elevate any ensemble but is affordable and easy to wear. Instead of just leather jackets and pants, opt for a leather overshirt, a leather bralette, or a leather bucket hat for a fresh way to wear the material. Black leather in matching separates à la Coco Rocha makes for an effortlessly classic look. With brands like Hermès looking at alternative vegan sources of leather, faux leather is a style that is here to stay and dominate the runways.
Sheer pieces were a big trend in spring/summer 2021 collections, and the style is still popping up everywhere, from big-name fashion houses like Givenchy to streetwear brands like Instagram-favourite I.AM.GIA. While it might seem impractical or risque, a mesh top will actually prove to be a powerhouse item in your wardrobe, making a great layering piece, an easy way to dress up jeans, and the perfect going-out look. Sheer pieces have been making their rounds on Instagram for years now, but we will be seeing more of them as the weather starts to warm up.
A Well-Loved Staple
You just can’t go wrong with a good trench coat. It’s a practical spring item that can be used as an extra layer, or the main piece in an outfit. To add some interest, go for a full-length, boxier style, like this coat from Bottega Veneta. Pair with neutral, light-weight knits like RHW for an optimal warm-weather look. Trench coats are a must-have addition to any stylish girl’s wardrobe that will stand the test of time.
The New LBD
You can’t go wrong with a good LBD. The matching cut-off sleeves with this knit mini dress from Marc Jacobs adds some interest to a classic silhouette. Try pairing a neutral mini dress with a matching bolero top or shop dresses that come with matching knitwear for a similar look. Knit mini dresses are a great transitional piece from late winter to Spring and can carry you right through the fall.
Not Your Mother’s Animal Print
Ok, so animal print isn’t really a “trend,” exactly, because it’s nothing new, but it’s definitely popping up in celeb’s sartorial choices. Fresh iterations, like these Blumarine leopard pants, make it easier to wear than ever before. Make like Kendall and pair the pants with a contrasting floral-print sweater for some easy pattern mixing. Animal prints have almost become as classic as black and white, so it’s another great addition to your wardrobe that will not be going anywhere anytime soon.
The humble crop top seems to be bigger than ever this year, especially shorter, “bra-top” styles like this Jacquemus La Chemise Baci Cropped Shirt. Go for a light color like the one shown here for perfect vacation-ready spring/summer vibes. Whether you pair it with a skirt, pants, or shorts, this Jacquemus cropped shirt will elevate any outfit.
An updated version of the bucket-hat trend, logo-plaque bucket hats, like the Prada Nylon Bucket Hat seen here on Australian Influencer Tammy Hembrow, is having a moment among the style crowd. Opt for a solid color in a bright hue like Tammy or a neutral and style with everything from swimsuits to dresses.
While many agree that the head-to-toe Logo Mania trend is pretty much out, logos themselves and big branding are still hot, as evidenced by S/S21 runway collections from Versace and Givenchy, which feature less-intense versions of the trend. Instead of wearing completely monogrammed pieces, opt for pops of brands in your accessories, like Jordyn does with a vintage Dior monogram scarf, for a 2021 take.
The jewelry you used to wear as a child is back, except now it’s trendy. Chunky plastic jewelry in bright hues and pastels, with flowers, gold accents, and just about anything else you can think of, have been trending hard thanks to celebrities’ styling of them. La Manso, a Spanish brand by Barcelona-based designer Adriana Manso, has particularly helped move the trend forward. After stars like Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, and Bell Hadid were seen wearing rings by the label.
Checkerboard print seems to be 2021’s most Insta-worthy print. First, you could get it on throw pillows. Then rugs. Now, popularized by fashion-girl favorite e-shop Lisa Say Gah, it’s on sweaters, tops, bags, and pants and is even making its way to nail art. Both comfortingly nostalgic (think Vans circa 1982) and surprisingly fresh-feeling, the print is a big trend for both Spring and summer. Wear it head-to-toe like Emma Louise Corrin for a super put-together look.
Take inspiration from these looks featuring pieces by Bottega Veneta, Sid Neigum, Fendi and more or take after the celebs and treat yourself to the real thing. Either way, these trends will be sure to take your spring outfit game to the next level.
