Spring

Spring fashion is a little bit of everything | Queenswide

The Covid-19 pandemic has influenced a lot in our daily lives over the past year: the way we interact with others, the way we work and even the way we dress.

Fashion trends have completed a full pendulum swing in the year we’ve been locked up and shuttered up. Muted colors and minimalistic patterns were trendy in the days before we were boarded up inside our homes, but now bright neons, flashy jewelry and commanding graphics are in style.

“Color and fashion have a lot to do with how we feel,” said Anna McFillin, a journalism and fashion studies student

In the spring 2021 collections, we saw iconic accessories come to life in new and unexpected ways. For a handful of designers, this meant miniaturizing their best-selling and most coveted styles into teeny, pint-size jewelry versions.

At Jacquemus, the Le Chiquito mini bags were seemingly cast in metal and turned into earrings. At Loewe, Jonathan Anderson fashioned the label’s

The Biggest Fashion Trends Of Spring 2021

What does fashion in 2021 look like? For all the changes we’ve seen over the past year, the trend machine continues to churn along, with styles from the near past (think early-2000s Paris Hilton) to the far past (think Marie Antoinette) alike popping back into style.

A Spring Fashion Issue for an Optimistic Future

Our spring Women’s Fashion issue is always made in an optimistic frame of mind; we begin closing it in January, when the year is fresh, and the sense of possibility — however false or short-lived — still potent.

This particular January, of course, felt more charged than most. Last year was our annus horribilis, and our expectations for this year are bound to be impossible. But while some eras have come to their legal or official conclusions, their consequences and repercussions linger — 2020 was a reminder that the past is never the past, however much we pretend otherwise.
