I am big on planning ahead. That’s why I have no problem encouraging you to start thinking about holiday 2021 fashion trends even though it’s only early November.
See, when you prepare in advance, you set yourself up for a successfully stylish season. You’ll feel confident and more carefree to enjoy the celebrations of the holidays. Plus, you’ll look amazing in all those photos in front of the tree or at the dinner table.
So, get into the spirit. Let’s talk about holiday 2021 fashion trends right now.
Okay. You’re thinking, “Sheer? But it’s cold out!” However, hear me out. I swear, I can make sense of this.
There’s a certain logic to layering sheer fashion. Think about it. During the fall and winter, we’re layering our clothes anyway, right? (And if you’re not, you should. It’s key to good cold-weather styling.)
With a sheer piece, you’re merely using it as another layer of your clothes. Think about a sheer maxi skirt layered over opaque tights in the same hue, topped off with a chunky knit sweater.
What about a sheer blouse with a high neck and a leather vest (we’ll get to that trend next) layered on top? Treat your sheer apparel items as you would any other layer. I promise, you can wear this holiday 2021 fashion trend without freezing to death.
With leather, anything goes! From leather pants, to leather skirts, to leather dresses—leather is the hottest (and literally the warmest) fashion trend of the holiday 2021 season!
Just be sure to take care of your leather fashion, and it will last you forever. And keep in mind, leather layers well with sheer looks, too.
Sequins? During the daytime? Yes, please! I love that in 2021 it is perfectly acceptable to wear sequins during the daytime.
Whether you opt for an allover sequin dress or a simple mini skirt, just go for it. Wear sequins to the daytime family holiday gathering, and ignore the whispers from your judgmental great aunt. If you’re lucky, she’ll let you raid her closet for some vintage sequins fashion to wear for that big New Year’s Eve event.
You know how the pandemic stopped all that handshaking? Well, to compensate, big, voluminous statement rings have returned as a hot holiday 2021 fashion trend. This way, when your brother introduces you to his new girlfriend and you have to wave your hello, she’ll be sure to notice.
You only need one statement ring, but be sure to select one that is bold, eye-catching, and makes you the center of attention. My favorite statement ring look is something gold and encrusted with crystals, such as Betsey Johnson’s True Leopard Statement Ring.
Keeping it casual? Then this cozy holiday 2021 fashion trend is perfect for you.
Opt for furry (faux, please) and teddy bear-fuzzy textures. I like this look best when it’s in the form of a nice long cardigan, a soft knit cap, or toasty booties.
Heck, why not go head to toe in fluffy fashion? If it’s good enough for Santa, it’s good enough for you.
