Yes, just like last year, spring summer 2021 is all about the hair accessories. From headbands (thin headbands and double headbands) to big bows (especially black bows), veils, flowers, and pearl hairpins. Ps. Be sure to go through the extended report on SS21 hair accessories to find out what other hair accessories are in style for spring summer 2021.
PEARL HAIR ACCESSORIES ARE NO. 1 MOST FASHIONABLE ACCESSORY OF 2021
Partially thanks to Bridgerton, gloves are very fashionable for spring summer 2021. 2021 is the year of fancy net gloves and candy-like pink leather gloves. I already have a pretty nice collection of pink leather gloves in my wardrobe. Hence I will put my hands on/in these stunning net gloves.
SPRING GLOVES WILL BRING A LADYLIKE TOUCH TO YOUR CAPSULE CLOSET
PUT ON NET GLOVES FOR THE PROMENADE
Admittedly I don’t care much about the fashionable part of the face mask, but more about the functional part. Even so, you should know that it’s fashionable to match your face mask with the outfit you are wearing. Browse through the widget below to find some of the most fashionable face masks of spring summer 2021.

Check the styling trends to see how to style tights with sandals for spring summer 2021. The most stylish combination will shock you.
TIGHTS IN STYLE FOR SPRING SUMMER 2021
You have two options this season. Either an ultra-thin belt or a strappy belt – harness-like belt (like the Dior DiorDouble belt). I just bought this Bottega Veneta belt. It’s just perfect. It comes with the BV logo, yet it’s not too pretentious.
ULTRA SKINNY BELTS SHOULDN’T MISS IN YOUR CLOSET THIS SEASON
When it comes to jewellery there are 4 big fashion trends for spring summer 2021. Layered boho necklaces, pearls, chunky chain jewellery, and neon plastic jewellery. So better tick all the checkboxes next to the pearls, chain jewellery and plastic rings. By the way, I have this chain bracelet set, too.
THE MOST FASHIONABLE JEWELLERY OF SPRING SUMMER 2021
Mono earring, hoop earrings, and shoulder-grazing earrings are in fashion for 2021, too. By the way, if you want your last year’s favourite shell necklace to look fashionable for 2021, be sure to style it with pearls. I’m sure you can master the layered look with strands, pearls, and shells.
PLASTIC RINGS ARE IN STYLE FOR 2021 – BUY THESE
Sunglasses for sunbathing on your balcony.
Yes, xl large sunglasses are still in fashion for 2021. I know! Not a surprise. The most fashionable sunglasses for summer 2021 are large. Like really large and square. Although the elongated thin sunglasses are in style for spring summer 2021, too. Other sunglasses in fashion for SS21 are white sunglasses, cat-eye sunglasses, geometric sunglasses, updated aviators, sporty sunglasses, visors, sunglasses with a colorful frame, and sunglasses with tinted lenses. The brown and yellow tinted lens are particularly fashionable for spring summer 2021.
Remember I wrote bird-nest hat trend would get big in 2021? It turns out that this fashion trend no one seemed to care about finally got into the spotlight. Everyone wears oversized bird-nest hats now – when they/we are not wearing a baseball cap, obviously. Anyway, I am getting this bird-nest hat.
HATS YOU WILL WEAR ON A GOOD HAIR DAY, TOO
Other fashionable spring summer summer 2021 hats are bucket hats (especially a crochet bucket hat), white wool hat, white crochet hat, flat-brimmed boater hat, a visor with an extra wide brim, wide brim hat with a scarf or a string, safari hat, and an oversized bowler hat. Classic sun-hats, panama, and fedora hats are out of style this season. Unless they are white. All the white hats are in style this season. Ps. More about the latest hat trends in the hat trend report.
MORE HEADWEAR TO ADD TO YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE
Well, if you don’t like a bucket hat or the bird-nest hat, there is always the ladylike headscarf you can wear. Just be sure to tie the square scarf under your chin. Like Grace Kelly would.
Now that you are all accessorized and up to date with the latest accessory trends – let’s fill your closet with some new season’s clothes and shoes.
Spring is all about knit dresses, voluminous dresses, and romantic dresses. The most fashionable spring 2021 dresses are an A-style dress, a knit dress (I have this one from H&M, but buying a few more – find them in the widget below), a bubblegum pink dress, a Barbie pink dress, a voluminous dress, a leather dress, a little black dress, a dress with the leg of the mutton sleeve (I bought this stunning bubble pink dress from Rotate since it combines 3 different dress SS21 trends), and a sequin dress (I bought this puff sleeve sequined dress from H&M).
Other equally stylish dresses in fashion for spring 2021 are, a puff sleeve dress, a tea dress (I bought this Rotate tea dress), long sleeve mini babydoll dress (I bought this pretty dress from & Other Stories), a red dress (I plan to buy this red dress from Red Valentino), a utilitarian shirtdress, a shirtdress with puff sleeves, a cape dress, a sporty cut-out dress (Jacquemus cut-out polo dress is the most coveted dress right now).
Furthermore, dresses in floral print (I will either buy this Rotate dress or this Red Valentino dress), long sleeve dress, a Victorian dress, a modest teacher dress, a dress with bold shoulders, and a dress with a sweetheart neckline.
ZOOM DATE DRESSES FOR A ROMANTIC SPRING DATE
Ps. If you can’t decide what little black dress to buy for spring summer 2021 – check the list of the most fashionable little black dresses. It will help!
Do you know what the most fashionable summer dress in 2021 is? No, not the tie-dye dress. Tie-dye is not fashionable anymore. At least not as much as it was last year – read not worthy of adding into your capsule closet. The most fashionable 2021 summer dress is the naked dress – slinky, slightly sheer, backless, cut-out dress or body-con dress. Thumbs up if you like this fashion trend! Ps. If you can only afford one summer dress – get this naked dress.
Another summer dress I’m pretty sure you will be happy to wear again is the slip dress. And a tulle dress. Sheer dresses are fashionable for summer 2021, too. Including a net dress. By the way, I bought this beautiful sheer dress from Self-Portrait.
Also fashionable for summer 2021 are the cotton midi dress, macramé dress, backless dress, (admittedly I have too many backless dresses already – but one more – this one – can still find a place in my closet) pink dress, spaghetti strap dress, kaftan-style dress, white dress, (I bought this one for spring, and planning to buy this white dress for summer), shimmer dress, dresses with the heart neckline, dresses with the square neckline. Plus, all the dress styles that are in fashion for spring 2021 – only made of thinner materials.
Yes, a leather shacket. A leather shacket is this season’s most fashionable jacket. And this Mango pink leather shacket is simply a must-have for spring 2021. Other fashionable spring summer 2021 jackets are also a pink shacket, safari jacket (get this Max Mara safari jacket – I have it too, remove the belt and wear it as a pink shacket – I wear my Max Mara safari jacket like this too), leopard print jacket, quilted jacket, grey blazer, loose leather blazer, denim trench coat, pink tweed jacket (I am getting this chic tweed jacket), cotton-twill coat, and the egg-shape coat.
Mentioning a coat, here is the list of the latest trench coats.
TRENCH COATS TO ADD TO YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE
The most fashionable trench coats for spring summer 2021 are a taffeta trench coat, a trench coat with puff sleeves, trench coat in bubblegum pink, a denim trench coat, trench coat with a cape, a leather trench coat in pastel colours, furthermore a romantic trench coat with lace.
For rainy spring days, buy a beige trench coat (I have this Burberry trench coat with a removable hood – my best buy ever), or this fashionable trench coat with puff sleeves, denim jacket (this H&M denim jacket is the best money for value capsule closet piece). And yes, all these spring jackets will be in style for fall 2021, too.
BLAZERS THAT SHOULDN’T MISS IN YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE
There are 5 big blazer trends for spring summer 2021: padded shoulder blazer, cropped blazer, checked blazer, a disco blazer, loose leather blazer, and puff sleeve blazer. For the colours, the most fashionable blazers come in pink, white, grey, and yellow. I don’t think I will splurge on the yellow blazer, though. But I am, for sure, getting this white Sandro Paris blazer, and this pink Sandro Paris blazer. All in all, Sandro Paris makes the most quality blazers.
SUMMER JACKETS TO WEAR OVER A CROP TOP
For not so warm summer nights you will need this jacket. No, not your boyfriend’s bomber jacket. But a 70s bomber jacket. A 70s style bomber jacket is a trophy jacket of SS 2021. Surprised? Frankly, I was!
The must-buy tops this season are undoubtedly tops that are up to the midriff flossing trend, the second skin top, button up poet’s blouse, any blouse with statement sleeves, leather shirt, polo top, top with heart neckline (yes, this trend is big), slip top, the 70s inspired short sleeve turtleneck sweater, cropped sweatshirt (I bought this one), a body. And a pretty cardigan – I’m getting this one.
Furthermore, a denim shirt, men’s shirt, beige linen top (ps. wear a linen top with midi skirt), nautical top (you know that top with horizontal blue and white stripes French girls love so much – it’s back on trend), knitted polo top, and a simple white T-shirt.
Even so, the most fashionable spring summer 2021 top is the midriff floss top. By the way, an off the shoulder top is fashionable again. Yes, again! But it’s sightly more refind than all the off the shoulder tops that you already have in your capsule closet. I had to buy this off-the-shoulder top for myself since my old off the shoulder tops are all more or less outdated.
Another stylish spring summer 2021 top you might already own is a polo shirt. As you read, in spring summer 2021 we wear polo shirts every day. When doing sports and work at the office. It seems to me that I won’t be the only one stylish at the golf course this year.
Anyway, there are a few other tops and tees for spring summer 2021 you should add to your spring summer 2021 capsule wardrobe; a crop top, the corset top, ribbed button detailed top, spaghetti strap top, bodycon top, form-fitting top, half-zipped sweater, embroidered knits, a vest, and a bra. Well, don’t look like that. The lingerie trend is big this summer.
Ps. Check the tee/top trend report to see the list of all tops that are in fashion for spring summer 2021.
The most stylish blouse of spring summer 2021 is a button-up poet’s blouse. Other stylish blouses in fashion for spring summer 2021 are a draped blouse, sheer blouse, romantic lace blouse, Peter Pan blouse, peplum blouse, crop blouse, off the shoulder blouse, puff sleeve blouse, embroidered blouse, prairie blouse, square neck blouse, sweetheart neckline blouse, and a long tunic.
Ps. You might want to add the cold shoulder top to your capsule wardrobe this season too. Even though the cold shoulder top is not the most fashionable top of the season, it is the No. 1 most practical top to wear for the vaccination.
IF YOU NEED 5 T-SHIRTS IN YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE – BUY THESE T-SHIRTS ONLINE
Something knitted is not essential only for spring 2021 but for summer 2021, also. This year, in particular, wool is the No. 1 most fashionable material, and this knitwear is simply a must have.
A pretty short cardigan with collar, cardigan with sweetheart neckline, a knit dress, knit bra top, turtleneck sweater, lace collar sweater, cable knit cropped sweater, vest, puff sleeve cardigan, pink cardigan, sage green short sleeve pullover, ribbed puff sleeve sweater, knit athletic top, knitted shorts, square neck ribbed sweater, sweetheart neck sweater, tie waist knitted crop top, draped pullover, cropped sweater, sweater with statement collar, knit polo shirt, zipped collar sweater, coatigan, cutout ribbed-knit cardigan, classic fitted tank top, knit bodysuit, crochet sweater, and crochet swimwear are some of the most fashionable knitwear pieces to add to your capsule wardrobe.
Surely you can find fashionable knitwear that matches your style. I’m adding these knitted pieces.
SPRING KNITWEAR TO WEAR ON COLD SPRING MORNINGS
Apart from the spring knitwear, I also bought this pretty cardigan set (a floral cardigan and a matching knitted tank top – they are sold separately) from Asos. Admittedly, I rarely shop on Asos; however, this cardigan set is a must buy. It’s from the Danish label Y.A.S.
