Comfortable footwear is key, and that's why a cushy clog is at the top of my list. The silhouette is trend-forward and will make for a great house shoe option.

Relaxed Tailoring

Tailoring for 2021 gets even more relaxed. The idea of a fresh oversize blazer to enhance my WFH vibes when I need to be more dressed up for Zoom meetings feels so right.

Light-Wash Jeans

While I personally wear skinny jeans on the regular (often darker washes), those light-wash styles in loose cuts feel incredibly modern.

Faux-Leather Trousers

Faux-leather separates will continue to increase in popularity in 2021 as a simple way to elevate any look. I'm into the idea of faux-leather trousers with a trendy basic like a sweater vest.

Puffer Coats

In terms of outerwear, you can't beat a stylish puffer coat. I'm especially loving those styles in neutral hues.

Knit Sets

Sweatsuits have become a staple in my rotation, and I'm looking forward to shopping for stylish knit sets as well to bring a chic spin to my at-home uniforms.
