The 5 trends of summer 2021 not to be missed
The summer of 2021 marks the end of the confinement and the return to social life. We want to show ourselves off, get ready and leave the pyjama afternoons behind us. Finally being able to give free rein to our creativity, fashion is back and with it its more or less ephemeral trends.
Nowadays, socks are no longer relegated to the rank of underwear, they are now a fashion accessory that can be seen and seen again.
So how do you match your socks to the summer trends ?
Somehow 70s fashion finds a way to sneak into our wardrobes. This time it's the 90s tie-dye, itself inspired by the 70s, that is making a comeback. This season's tie-dye sock is worn in a thick knit with a pleated look, with a pair of vans or sports sandals to play skateboarder on electric scooters. Accessorise with an oversized t-shirt and denim shorts, very trendy this season, or even shorts. A unisex look, easy to wear.
2. The net
The "fisherman's net" is everywhere: handbag, sandals, dress, top ... A raw material that contrasts with the lightness of summer dresses to bring an unexpected texture to the outfit.
The net is an interesting way to create a balance between materials and textures. On the feet, it is the retro spirit of macramé that naturally finds its place. We can easily match these 70's crochet inspired socks with our summer shoes and we won't hesitate to associate them with a long floral print dress.
3. The yellow
The colour of the year 2021 "Illuminating yellow" calls for the good mood we all need. A frank and positive yellow that warms the heart !
Combined with vintage 60's patterns, there are a thousand ways to match this type of sock to our colourful outfits. You can also choose to make them the centrepiece of your outfit by contrasting your yellow socks with a more casual outfit. This yellow goes perfectly with a pale blue or faded jeans.
4. The return to nature
During the lockdown, we all found ourselves thinking about moving to a farm in the country. The great outdoors and all things rustic has haunted the common city dweller's fantasy of a great escape to the meadows. Everywhere you look, you'll find country patterns like Grandma's, perfect for pairing with linen or a simple double-breasted dress.
5. The transparency
A surge of romance and femininity is sweeping the fashion world, which is swapping jogging suits and other confining outfits for twirling maxi dresses, Greek goddess silhouettes and flowing bottoms. This transparent trend even extends to socks with models that are a little childlike, a touch of softness that we all need. We love the trainers and sheer socks look, or the pumps and socks look ! The transparent sock trend has a long way to go.
The summer of 2021 is a time of optimism where fashion seems to have a certain innocence about it. Whether the weather is grey or the sun is shining, our outfits reflect the weather in our hearts. An accessory as seemingly innocuous as a sock can make your outfit come alive in a whole new way and add a touch of originality or a more fashionable accent. Be yourself to the core and match your socks to your outfit this summer !
