We’re springing back into another new year with brand new fashion and beauty trends. Our modelling agency, Models Direct, knows that exciting looks are what’s set to kick this year off to a great start and help 2021 be a year of recovery, hope and self-love.
We’ve been sieving through the latest on-trend fashion statements and beauty heroes and where better to look than through SS21 Fashion Weeks to forecast statement pieces and gain some inspiration from leading brands like Anna Sui, Carolina Herrera, and Christian Siriano. No more troubleshooting for this year’s fashion and beauty hot picks! If you’re new to the scene or already know the modelling world, Models Direct will walk you through the popular trends.
Iconic Face Masks
2020 marked the year of the most popular item to have – the face mask. The worldwide decision to make it compulsory in certain settings meant that we’d be wearing face masks a lot. And then stepped in our fashion gurus to help them not only keep us and others safe but also make us look exceptionally stylish. With all the colours and designs floating about, we’re spoilt for choice. The classic colour black has stepped in to help as it can team up with practically everything.
Accessorise with Head Scarfs
Bringing back the Audrey Hepburn days with the classic 50s scarf is just what this year’s collection includes. Not only does it protect your hair but helps to keep it looking sleek and tamed in the most oh-so-fashionable way. And even though it is classed as a headscarf, it’s a versatile statement piece which can be worn in different ways depending on what your style is – over your head, around the back of your head, your neck, your wrist or even weaved through your belt or bag.
Rockin’ the Oversized Boyfriend Jackets
Move on over boyfriend jeans, it’s time for the oversized boyfriend jacket to be the star of the show. The 80s inspired blazer is making a comeback and paired up with the perfect apparel – straight-leg trousers, leather shorts or skirt, you’re onto a winner.
Trending Sorbet Pastel Hues
The pastel theme is running through this year’s collection but warming up for the summer with sorbet hues. Perfect for a wide variety of skin tones, sorbet pastel is a jazzy, fun and soft way of getting summer-ready and teaming up with another tone will be the icing on the cake!
Beauty lovers, listen up!
We went all DIY with our hair and beauty during the pandemic. Hairdressers and beauty salons were shut (which felt like forever) so we took the bull by the horns and did it ourselves – home dyes, haircuts, the works. This year couldn’t be a better year to keep dying those locks and with the ocean theme running, amethyst and pearl are the new trends to be making a hit with the hair waves.
Nature in beauty
We’re going back to basics and so is the makeup for 2021. Greens, sage and neutral colours are all helping the new year trend naturally. Green smokey eyes, light foundation and a bold lip are brightening up our rainy and cold days making way for the sunshine ahead.
The Style Round-up
Keep your style game pumping with these statement pieces. Whether you’re on the lookout for something bold, colourful, printed or plain, it seems like there’s something for everyone with this year’s new fashion looks.
