A Bright New Season of Fashion
Welcome to the New Year friends. Hasn’t this past year been challenging? Regardless of what is going on in the world we still feel the same excitement as we do every year when the new collections start arriving. Warmer weather, extra daylight and lots of great fashions are on the way.
Every year the Pantone Color Institute publishes the top 10 colours and four classic neutral colours they predict will trend in the world of fashion. The colour palettes designers have embraced for the upcoming season are fun and bright. You’ll notice all the colours mix beautifully with the neutral classics.
The 2021 spring/summer collections were designed during the first lockdown in early 2020. We are seeing lots of colour and patterns paired with a classic sensibility. The focus is comfort and fun. This is a great season to find a favourite new colour, look for style inspiration, and enjoy a fresh new look.
Here are some of the noteworthy colourful styles we are loving. The Pantone Institute has named this yellow - “Illuminating” and the purple - “Amethyst Orchid”. A linen blouse with a relaxed fit by Velvet is gorgeous and makes us feel happy.
Sleeves with a little volume look so pretty and add interest. Textures such as knits, embroidery, and lace are great. These details are big winners this season.
This short-sleeve cotton knit sweater by Velvet is a perfect example of adding interesting details to your look.
You can always count on Johnny Was to add colour and gorgeous embroidered details.
Colours and Patterns
Animal prints on clothing, accessories and footwear are still on-trend. We are seeing more zebra print and there are lots of styling options.
The comfortable Wonder zebra print sandal with a low heel will give your neutral colours a lift. Wear with pants, and dresses.
This might be a good year to try some cheerful floral prints. It’s such a nice way to get over the winter blahs.
This Princess Goes Hollywood hoodie with a floral and paisley pattern is cheerful and looks terrific. Pair with casual pants for an everyday style.
Keep your style fresh and fun. The relaxed styles this year can look polished and fashion forward when you update your footwear. We saw chunkier soles trending last year and they continue to add a modern update. The retro sneaker is also still going strong.
Due to popular demand, our black Mjus reptile texture sneaker with a white chunky sole and silver grommets is back this season.
A Matching Outfit
It seems everyone is finding they like to wear active-leisure outfits with a matching top and bottom. It’s such an easy, carefree style to wear. Choose a quality fabric and good fit so you feel your best wearing it.
You’ll feel nothing but stylish vibes wearing a Johnny Was embroidered camouflage print sweatshirt and matching legging. Spring is a great time to wear a Blundstone water-proof boot.
We have lots of new clothing, footwear and accessories arriving weekly and we’re very excited by what we see trending. Make this your year to embrace colour and to enjoy dressing in the new styles. We are always happy to see you. Drop by anytime and we can show you all the new season’s styling options.
We continue to follow AHS guidelines at both of our stores. You can enjoy a safe environment to shop and we can arrange private shopping appointments if you prefer. Thank you for your continued support. #shoplocal
