Fashion trends 2021: autumn / winter - the 10 most important trends of the season

Fashion trends fall / winter 2021: 10 trends that are enough

A buzzword for fashion in autumn / winter 2021? Après-ski. The Parisian fashion jury from Chanel and Miu Miu has spoken: Prepare yourself for lined clothing from head to toe and seek solace in cozy teddy bear and faux fur. The new season is all about keeping that warm feeling inside.

The Italian fashion capital Milan, on the other hand, put the mini skirt at the forefront in the autumn / winter season 2021 - and by "mini" we mean tiny. The presentation of Tom Ford's new collection was not originally planned to coincide with Milan Fashion Week (his plans were thwarted by the pandemic). The launch couldn't have gotten a better timing, however, and tied in perfectly with Milan Fashion Week's newly discovered preference for the short hem - see Valentino's punky monochrome mini dresses.

The labels of the US fashion capital New York were bursting with new energy: from the blockbuster collection of NYFW favorite Proenza Schouler to the wit and ingenuity of the "Morph" lookbook by Collina Strada. The main focus for autumn / winter 2021 was on runway interpretations of the tank top, architectural knitwear and the decidedly casual "shirt suiting" as a substitute for the strict trouser suit.

Freedom, fashion and the promise of a medium-sized party (enough completely aus) - while the Londoners were looking towards the end of the long winter lockdown, the designers in the English capital were busy designing a better future: from voluminous 24/7 party clothes to the rebirth of the cool girl Checks.

Here we present the ten most important fashion trends for autumn / winter 2021:

The image of a thoughtful Maggie Maurer in Altuzarra knitwear in the label's autumn / winter lookbook 2021/22 sums up our current situation (just imagine the bag is a laptop). Wrapping rope has become a loyal friend to all of us since last year, while we often sit in front of different screens until late in the evening. Many of us have also discovered the virtues of the "Netflix wrap" (also known as the blanket or giant sweater that you reach for when you have nothing to do but watch "She Knows About You" in one go) - and why not? Good knitwear is convincing on many levels, as Gabriela Hearst's enduring Chloé debut confirms.

2. Fashion trend autumn / winter 2021: teddy fur

What you need to know:

Miuccia Prada chose Italy's Dolomites (the ultra-chic ski village of Cortina d'Ampezzo, to be precise) as the backdrop for Miu Miu's adventurous fall / winter show 2021/22 and delivered a collection that is also about the calming power of nature was like vintage winter sports fashion. "Nature is the only thing that heals you," Prada told us. "I love mountain adventures."

The selection of teddy bear tracksuits and yeti boots made of faux fur invites you to snuggle up. Just like the "plush animal" skirt suits from Chanel, which give the term "comfort dressing" a whole new dimension.

3. Fall / Winter 2021 fashion trend: 1960s fashion

What you need to know:

Any self-respecting Depop fan will be able to tell you that the return of the super mini is already Long was coming. The difference for autumn / winter 2021/22: Your most important reference point is the 1960s (and not the 2000s).

The A-line silhouettes and the newly interpreted go-go boots at Louis Vuitton set the agenda for the Mod Girl 2.0's wardrobe. Instead of a literal throwback, today's mod look comes with fancy sportswear (think of the deconstructed flight jacket). This is also the case with Courrèges, where the original, lively style of the house has been updated thanks to the new creative director Nicolas Di Felice (note the baseball cap). The designer has an impressive résumé, with roles at Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton alongside Nicolas Ghesquière, and Christian Dior under Raf Simons. As Nicole Phelps writes for VOGUE, "Courrèges' 1960s futurism was filtered through Di Felice's eyes as a child of the 1990s."

4. Fashion trend autumn / winter 2021: winter sports fashion

What you need to know:

Do you remember the outcry when the XXL puffer jackets appeared on the catwalks? One can only laugh about that today. Chanel dungarees and Miu Miu ski suits are just the start of an extreme sports trend that will hit your closet in fall 2021 as our love of nature (and wilderness adventures) continues to influence our clothing.

Virginie Viard fueled the après-ski vibe for her "Coco Neige" collection by swapping the vaults of the Parisian Grand Palais for the intimate surroundings of the legendary Castel nightclub (famous for its rock star, model and royals regulars in the 1960s and 1970s).

The secret behind extreme winter fashion for 2021? Pay attention to what you do down below wear. At Chanel, they even designed their shoes to ensure that you get rid of your shifts when you enter the house. As VOGUE's Hamish Bowles noted, "Viard's shaggy moon boots turn out to be double-ply, allowing the voluminous shearling to be removed to reveal a slimmer boot underneath."

5. Fashion trend autumn / winter 2021: Y2K style

Before reading any further, you need to familiarize yourself with the strictly unofficial Throwback account @TomFordForGucci. Tom Ford didn't invent sex, but he catapulted the sex appeal of the 2000s onto the catwalks - and that's exactly where we're headed this fall. Low-slung hot pants, chain belts adorned with butterflies and spiky, knee-high boots are just the latest relics from the turn of the millennium that are now getting an exciting, modern update.

As VOGUE's Nicole Phelps writes in her review of Tom Ford's Fall / Winter collection, the 2021 version is said to be even more exciting than the original. Your judgment? "Ford's new hot pants, worn with turtlenecks and puffer or flight jackets, could actually be hotter - in the sense of micro - than anything he's ever done in his very hot days at Gucci."

6. Fashion trend autumn / winter 2021: shirt suiting

What you need to know:

Let's rewrite this subheading as "You already know that", namely: None of us miss strict company dress codes in the form of stiff suits. Casual, casual tailoring came about at New York Fashion Week in the form of "shirt suiting". Take a look through Proenza Schouler's Fall / Winter 2021/22 collection and you'll see exactly why Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are adored by Ella Emhoff, Meadow Walker and almost every fashion editor from Paris to Sydney. As Nicole Phelps of VOGUE Runway puts it, "they haven't lost touch with their cool-kid authenticity" - which means a lot of chic, low-cost pieces that we do now want to wear.

7. Fashion trend autumn / winter 2021: tank tops

What you need to know:

We describe our renewed appreciation for pleated skirts in two words: Princess Diana. We can still learn a lot about timeless style from the aristocratic archives (she wore a waist-accentuating belt with flying colors and a swinging accordion midi skirt). So how do we wear them now? With an elegant oversize shirt with a bow (3.1 Phillip Lim), a box-shaped sweater (Adam Lippes) or a thigh-length coat (Bevza).
