Spring 2021 Fashion Trends: Sweatshirts, Knits, Day Dresses, and More

There have been complaints about the spring 2021 collections. People kvetch in group chats and Twitter threads that digital shows are not as good as the real thing—and that the real thing is not as good as it used to be. That’s one way to look at the current situation, but there’s a thrilling upside to this fragmented season: We are experiencing something actually new. In an industry that hews so passionately to tradition, heritage, and status quo, how exciting is it to feel that after seasons of talk, we are finally on the precipice of real, tangible change? That change will hopefully take many forms beyond a democratized digi-physical fashion week, but this season of shows has been a good start. 

The biggest shift in the garments that flashed across our screens is that, for the first time in a long time, these looked like clothes that are meant

Where High Fashion, Sweatshirts, and Flyswatters Mix

From Town & Country

Well into Wednesday night’s Vice-Presidential debate, Kamala Harris and Mike Pence were joined onstage by a surprise, diminutive guest. The bug remained on Pence’s head for an inordinate amount of time, but the internet quickly ensured that the moment would remain salient. And by the end of the night, the Biden campaign was offering what Pence had so desperately needed: a quality flyswatter (though he’d probably prefer his sans the Biden-Harris logo and “Truth Over Flies” pun).

This is not the first time that an American presidential nominee has turned to merch to get a point across—it’s not even the first time a campaign’s made a flyswatter. During the 1963 race, Barry Goldwater released “Gold Water,” sold as “the right drink for the conservative taste”; Lyndon B. Johnson countered with “Johnson Juice,” labeled as

Best Zara Sweatpants and Sweatshirts

At first, tie-dying your matching sweat suits was the cool thing to do in 2020 (honestly, it’s still pretty cool in our books). And as the weather starts cooling down for fall, most major retailers are carrying fashionable versions of sweatshirts and sweatpants so everyone can get in on this comfortable trend. Zara, which is basically our go-to for affordable pieces already, is one of the best spots to score fun, comfy sweatshirts and sweatpants in a variety of colors, cuts, patterns, and sizes.

Here’s the thing: I wore sweatshirts and sweatpants pretty often before this year. (What else would I wear on rainy Sundays spent binge-watching Gilmore Girls?) But even I have to admit the shelter-in-place, working-from-home, crazy quarantine world of 2020 has had me reaching for cozy clothes more than ever before — and I’m saying this as someone who was already working part-time from home before

Our favorite place to look for style inspiration? Celebrities, of course! It’s not just about what they wear on the red carpet — their off-duty outfits are always equally as interesting (and easier to channel in our everyday lives). There’s nothing we love more than a series of glamorous paparazzi shots!

Katie Holmes, a forever fashion icon, has been a particular flashbulbs fixture as of late, routinely popping up in downtown New York City clad in some seriously chic ensembles. They’re not all high-end designer pieces from Paris, though — her classic Gap sweatshirt instantly caught our eye and led Us down a quest to find similar items with a nostalgic feel. That’s why we rounded up nine vintage-inspired sweatshirts

Best Crewneck Sweatshirts for Men and Women

There’s something about a crewneck pullover sweatshirt that speaks to me. It’s the perfect medium between athleticwear and every day. I pair mine with jeans, but they really go with anything. Unlike their brothers, the hoodie, a crewneck sweatshirt can actually look chic, professional, and just really cool. If you’re looking to break your habit of wearing sweaters as your fall staple, might I suggest the humble pullover sweatshirt?

The French Terry Sweatshirt

The reason that I love this sweatshirt so much is that it actually looks like I put effort into my outfit, even if I really didn’t. The French terry is soft but not sloppy, with a slightly higher collar and thick cuffs. It comes in just two colors: Vintage White and Black. Either looks great with jeans and a pair of flats.

With a streamlined design and many, many colors to choose from, you really can’t go
