February is notoriously one of the toughest winter months to get through, as we're all just over it at this point. But the end is near, my friends, and we'll soon(ish) be wearing dresses, shorts, and sandals again. That's enough to inspire me to shop. If you're on the same page, the best place to start is by studying the trends. Specifically, I'm talking about pretty trends. And in my opinion, there's no better season for pretty trends than spring.
Perhaps because we've been stuck at home in sweats for so very long and we're craving beautiful clothes to wear, there are more pretty trends than ever for S/S 21. Designers really leaned into uplifting colors, eye-catching prints, and interesting details that are a big departure from what we were wearing in 2020. Hopeful and fresh and, of course, pretty is the name of the game with these trends.

It's no surprise that Netflix's most popular series ever is affecting the way we want to dress. Regency-era prints and silhouettes are popping up among brands' new arrivals in droves. Daphne Bridgerton would be so very proud.
Disclaimer: As far as skirts are concerned for spring this year, the shorter the better. If you're into it, go for ones with pretty prints and embellishments to make the most of the abbreviated fabric.
We're enamored with open back tops and dresses here at Who What Wear. Always have been, always will be. There are some beautiful ones already hitting the market for spring, so start looking forward to feeling the breeze on your back.
The most whimsical trend on this list, tutu skirts were surprisingly common on the S/S 21 runways. (Designers love ballet-inspired trends though, so perhaps it isn't all that surprising.) You can really go for it and choose a skirt in pink or lavender, or you can opt for a slightly edgier look with a black tulle skirt.
