This year seems to be the year of the birds. Feathery creations graced the runway at spring fashion week and we are here for it. Soft and fluffy airy dresses were all present, but what really caught our eye was structure. The designers this season sorted up their tailored fits with soft feathers. Which creates an impeccable combination.

This cardigan is not your grandmothers sweater. Designers and fashion retailers have upped their game when it comes to this chilly weather classic. Parisian women had always had a knack for styling cardigans and it’s time for the rest of the world to catch up.

3. Cut Outs
Here’s a little Jlo flair. After seeing her walk the runway at Versace in a green cut out dress some time back, designers took to planning. The modest trend has been raised to attention as many hijabi bloggers take over the runways, this year they want a change. Designers like Fendi placed cut outs in any garment they can, while Victoria Beckham too a more subtle approach.

The shearling trend is not a new trend, which we can all agree on. Bloggers took to Instagram to show off their fur bags. It was the maxi bags, then the pillow bags and now it’s time for shearling. Designers decided to mix the difficult fabric with some leather. Creating a mix between the soft girl and grunge girl aesthetic.

5. Wide Leg Pants
This year loungewear has been flying of the racks and many retailers had to restock on multiple occasions. After COVID hit, the world decided comfy clothes is best. Wearing jeans around your house is not ideal but wide leg pants are. As the world begins to open up many want to keep the comfort. These spacious pants do just that. Just enough leg room but not anywhere near a pair of restricting jeans.
