1. Puffy Sleeves
Puffy sleeves have been back as a fashion trend now for well over a year, and they are not going anywhere soon. Puffy sleeves look amazing incorporated with a dress, jumper or top - which is the perfect attire for the 2021 spring fashion season. We love how the sleeves do all of the talking in your outfit, so you can opt for an understated shoe and small simple handmade leather bag and still look fabulous. The perfect bag to pair with puffy sleeves this season would be the new Zatchels Aura handbag. The contemporary shape of this handmade leather handbag is complemented by smart cable stitching and silver nickel detailing which accentuate the bag’s stunning design. The addition of a detachable leather strap means this leather handbag can also be worn cross-body or as a shoulder bag.
2. Earthy & Pastel Tones
What colours do you think about when you think about Spring? We think about beautiful understated earthy and pastel tones - pinks, blues, purples, greens, whites and yellows. The great thing about all of these colours is that they look stunning no matter what accessory or item of clothing you are wearing and all look great together making the perfect spring fashion.
Pastel coloured handbags also look amazing with light denim tones, a slouchy T-shirt and trainers if you are looking for a laid back look or a sophisticated dress and tailored suit if you need to look more dressed up or professional.
We can already envisage the funky tan lines that are going to come out of this season thanks to the emergence of quirky cut-outs. Give your sundresses a little bit of edge with a flash of skin around the waist. This is a great way of showing off some skin and choosing how much you want to reveal. This is great for spring fashion as the weather can be somewhat unpredictable, to say the least.
Another Spring edit we are loving is Blazers - you can create a long line silhouette and play with shapes with an 80s-inspired oversized boyfriend blazer. With the help of shoulder pads, this outerwear cinches in your waist and elongates your legs. We love how you can easily dress this up or down for an effortlessly chic aesthetic whilst also being comfortable and practical.
Clutch handbags suit blazer perfectly as they do not take the attention away from your shoulders, as a strap or shoulder bag might. We would also recommend opting for a contrasting colour for a bold look and to make your accessories pop.
5. Face Masks
Face masks are now a way of life for us, so why not embrace them? Incorporate them into your 2021 spring fashion and the perfect accessory to your outfit. We think that the reusable cotton face masks are great, as they keep yourself and others around you safe - whilst also being kinder to the planet.
For this year's spring fashion we would highly recommend purchasing multiple masks in different colours/ patterns so that you can complement your entire outfit and style.
6. Wide Leg Trousers
From wearing joggers and leggings throughout the course of the pandemic, it comes as no surprise that wide leg trousers are amongst the top trends for this spring, and we love it! Say goodbye to the restricting skinny jeans and hello to wide leg trousers. With little fabric clinging to your body, this trend is guaranteed to keep you comfortable and is a great transition from the joggers that we’ve become accustomed to. They’re a great style trend for anyone looking to accentuate their waist and show off their curves and it's easy to see why some of the top A-List celebrities are inspired by this trend.
As demonstrated by Harper's Bazaar in 2019, this particular fashion trend is perfectly suited to a small handbag. You see, pairing a small bag helps to keep the outfit simple, allowing the trousers (preferably a patterned culotte) to take centre stage.
If you’re looking to invest in a pair of wide leg trousers, the Zatchels handmade Leather clutch bag is a great option to pair up with this trend. Whether you choose to use this as a clutch bag to dress up your outfit or use as an over the shoulder bag with a pair of trainers for during the day either is guaranteed to finish off your look.
At Zatchels, we can't wait to see how people style up and provide their personal take on these spring trends. So, if you’ve tried any of these we’d love for you to share them with us on Instagram using #ZatchelsSpringTrends, we might even share some of our favourites.
