If you are still on the hunt for staple pieces to add to your wardrobe for 2021, this article will guide you through the journey. We are only a few days into 2021. So, let’s start it in the prettiest outfits. And the best part is, I have found where you can get the trendiest pieces of the year for just under 100 EUR.
If you think that dressing up incorporating the hottest trends of the season into your looks suggests emptying your bank account, you are wrong. You can be chic on a budget.
Wide Leg Pants and Jeans
Let’s leave behind the skinny jeans in 2021! The skinny jean trend is dead and it is high time we accepted that. Now that loose-fitting clothes are trending and shape is created not with body-hugging clothing but cuts and textures, skinny jeans seem to be extremely outdated. However you try to style them, your look feels out of proportion.
Luckily, in 2021, wide leg pants are trending. While these are not an excuse to skip the gym, wide leg trousers do make you feel more confident, especially paired with the right clothing items. These trousers create visually long legs and accentuate the waistline. And the important thing is, they are flattering on all body types.
You can create both everyday looks and evening outfits with wide leg trousers. If you want a wearable pair, buy one in a neutral color. Wide leg jeans are also very versatile if you manage to find the right wash for you. Wide leg jeans are the perfect pair of trousers that will help you create effortless looks. Pair them with a white t-shirt or button up, add accessories, and you are good to go. Click here for wide leg jeans styling ideas.
From crop-tops to chunky sweaters, you can wear any top with wide leg pants. I’d recommend half-tucking the looser blouses as it will accentuate the waistline and create a beautiful silhouette. Also, stick to the same color palette if your goal is to look taller.
Oversized collars are one of the 2021 trends you shouldn’t miss. They look dramatic, romantic, classy, and chic all at the same time. No wonder many jumped into this trend toward the end of 2020.
You may think that it would be better to buy a basic collar shirt, just to be on the safe side and have a clothing item that won’t go out of fashion. But shirts, sweaters, and dresses with oversized collars are too charming to sleep on this trend.
You can wear tops with big collars with nearly anything, so long as the fit of the top works with the bottoms. Tuck a shirt with an oversized collar into your pants or style it with a midi skirt and loafers for a fun classy look. Let the collar shine over a knitted top if you like the layering trend too. Shirts with oversized collars are a great way for office workers to spice up their wardrobe.
If you don’t want to commit to a top or dress with an obnoxiously big collar, buy the collar separately and tie it over your favorite blouses and dresses for added drama.

Are we even surprised that bucket hats are in fashion in 2021? Even those who despised these nostalgic hats when they first appeared as a trend started wearing them at some point. Some associate bucket hats with walks on the beach while others think of the 90s seeing these hats.
But bucket hats have evolved. And you can proudly walk into 2021 wearing one. From knitted and furry to quilted and sheepskin, bucket hats come in a range of styles now. Depending on the material of your bucket hat, you can style it with different outfits. From sweatsuits and sporty outfits to girly looks on heels, you can pair bucket hats with anything you want.

Knitted cardigans are the coziest trend of 2021. Not only do they keep you warm but also add a lot to an outfit. Style your cardigan with a pair of jeans and a plain tee, throw a chunky knitted cardigan over, add a good pair of shoes and a nice bag. You can also pair it with leggings and sneakers for a comfy outfit. You can button your cardigan all the way up and wear it as a shirt too. Another thing you can do is dressing up your cardigan with a pair of heels and chunky jewelry that is also trending in 2021.
Cardigans are a ‘must-have’ transitional clothing item. Throw them over a dress or t-shirt when the weather is chilly but not quite as cold as to wear a coat or a warm jacket. For this reason, I have included knitted cardigans in the list of the clothing items for transitional outfits.
Extra Full Skirts
Have you ever watched Sex and the City and felt jealous of the extravagant tulle skirt looks of Carrie Bradshaw? Well, you can wear them now! Tulle has been on the runways in 2020 and we carrying voluminous tulle skirts into 2021.
I recommend creating evening looks with tulle skirts, heels, and a fitting top. The top you choose to wear with a tulle skirt can make or break your outfit. On one hand, you don’t want it to be as plain as for you to look like an off-duty ballerina. On the other hand, you don’t need too much going on on top when you are wearing a puffy skirt.
But tulle skirts are not the only trendy skirts of 2021. If you want to keep it voluminous but don’t want tulle, go with other types of puffy skirts the shape of which is achieved with pegged ham, layers, etc.
