March into Spring-Summer with style! SS21 Trend Report
BY IVY SCARLETT
“The return of 90s fashion staples, and candy tone footwear.”
Check out the sustainable fashion brands to watch this Spring-Summer and get inspiration on the many ways you can revamp your wardrobe this season.
Trends to look out for? Casual silhouettes and soft tailoring are leading the charge, followed by the return of 90s fashion staples, and candy tone footwear.
90s Bold Prints
Sustainable Eco Dyed White Printed Jumpsuit – Price: £225.00
90s fashion was all about the graphic prints – motifs and repeats. This trend is making a comeback this season. Fanfare’s printed jumpsuit speaks for itself; made from certified cotton satin which has been tested for harmful chemicals and found to be safe. The dyes used to print the design onto the fabric are water-based pigment inks, with no harmful chemical residues.
Candy Tone Palettes
Step up your footwear game this summer with sustainable styles in candy and liquorice tones.
Italian sustainable footwear brand Womsh, offers a range of cool, quirky footwear designs to choose from. Vegan Loop White – €209
However, if you’re after footwear that can weather both sunny and rainy days, then you may be interested in their Vegan Loop White PETA-Approved boot. These boots are made from recycled neoprene and Vegan Appleskin (upper), and recycled PET (laces).

The Diamond Store
Lab Diamond Heart Pendant Necklace 0.25ct H Si in 9K Gold - £495.00
This season accessorise your outfits with a variety of jewellery styles perfect for any special occasion.
The Diamond Store offers a luxurious, sustainable collection of lab grown diamond engagement rings and jewellery pieces. These diamonds are not extracted from the earth, which means their creation does not result in the depletion of natural resources, nor compromises our planet.
This sparkly Heart Pendant Necklace from The Diamond Store, is made from yellow gold with a milgrain edge for a touch of vintage elegance.
Soft Tailored Shirts
‘’Lovers’’ Contrast Split Shirt T/W – Price: £450.00
If you’re more of a minimalist fashion enthusiast, then you may want to take a look at RTW made-to-order womenswear brand, Aissata Ibrahima. Inspired by menswear silhouettes, Ibrahima’s "Lovers" Contrast Split Shirt is made from 100% cotton mixed with a textured silk cotton blend. The traditional collar and oversized cuffs are contrasted with a two-tone colour pallet. This style of soft tailoring is going to be a hit this spring-summer.
90s Fur Gilets
Celtic & Co
Luxe Toscana Gilet - $1,100.00
Another nod to the 90s are Fur Gilets, forecasted to make a comeback this spring-summer.
This garment, in my humble opinion, is the ultimate fashion item. Trans seasonal and luxurious, great for day and evening outfits. Celtic & Co’s Luxe Toscana Gilet is made from 100% Toscana Sheepskin.
Bellemere New York
Woollen Cashmere Deep V Turtleneck – £162.82
Single Cable Superfine Merino Jogger – £164.00
For the days when it is neither hot nor cold, Bellemere New York offers a range of cosy, casual separates for those chilled days indoors or afternoon coffee catch-ups with friends.
This Woollen Cashmere Deep V Turtleneck is
made from 35% Cashmere, 65% Australian Merino Wool, and the Cable Superfine Jogger is made from 100% Merino wool.
Both materials are super lightweight, soft and wrinkle resistant, and can regulate body temperature well. Perfect for those chilly spring-summer days.
Bisi Silk Blouse – Price: £139.00
Update your wardrobe with help from luxury sustainable African fashion brand, Sika’a, with a spring-summer staple. This abstract print beige blouse is made from Crepe de chine, a lightweight silk.
Loosely fitted with a high neck, and short button cuffed sleeves; pair this blouse over denim jeans and crank up the volume with some gold statement jewellery.
