It comes as no surprise that ‘comfort’ is the watchword for SS21. As most of us at home are learning to relax our mind, body and wardrobe, the fashion world is also seeing a resurgence of comfort clothing – including wide-leg trousers, denim, billowing dresses and simple monochrome ensembles.
Need some lookbook inspo? Take a peek below at our round-up of the most inspiring, achievable trends of the season, from some of our top brands.
Plus, several of our brands now offer a virtual shopping service during lockdown, so you can curl up on the sofa while shopping your favourite looks at outlet prices!
Nothing says ‘spring’ (or ‘Instagram-ready’) quite like a soft, pastel palette. We’re talking sky blue, mint green, cherry-blossom pink and pale daffodil yellow, complemented by stark-white accessories. Take a look at Tommy Hilfiger’s SS21 womenswear collection for fresh inspiration, which features perfectly preppy threads for the tennis court or poolside.
We understand the importance of wrapping up on brisk beach walks without sacrificing style. The onus this season is on elevating casual wear with fashionable twists, which is why we adore the SS21 offering from Lazy Jacks, featuring bright statement colours with playful patterns. Comfy coastal chic for the whole family! When it comes to footwear, ditch laces for relaxed slip-on styles like these knitted trainers from Dune London. Add bonus points for nautical detailing, such as blue and red colourways and stripes.
No, not black and white! This monochromatic look means going all-out with one colour. Mix and match shades, textures and fits, but choose one colour and run with it. Superdry's bold SS21 collection is a veritable rainbow, which makes this trend super accessible – why not rotate several outfits around different colour families? Starting with this marigold-yellow hoodie or outdoor-ready jacket, for that sunny summer feeling.
Making environmentally conscious decisions about what you wear is a good look... and vital for safeguarding the future of our planet. The good news is that many brands are shifting the narrative from fast fashion to sustainability, making it easier than ever to go green.

Turn your home into your castle and fill it with colourful detailing in hues that you love. But before you go retiling the kitchen, one of the most simple and effective ways to makeover your space is with well-chosen accessories. This season, we’re loving the tastebud-tingling colour palette of summer berry tart. From rambunctious redcurrant to moody blackberry tones, let nature inspire you and you can’t go wrong!
‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’ The famous quote by William Morris has guided interior design principle for centuries... though that doesn’t mean you can’t choose items that are both! Upgrade your living space with tableware that double as art. Glazed pottery offers unique and hypnotic finishes, reflects daylight beautifully and looks as good housing your morning espresso as your prized Pilea plant!

Brighten your kitchen with mood-lifting colour splashes. Matchy-matchy, neutral homeware is out; while loud and proud, statement design choices are most definitely in! Go big or go home with bold investment pieces, such as a teal cast-iron casserole or sunny yellow dinner set; or embrace all the colours of the rainbow with fun accessories, like mix ’n' match egg cups, salt and pepper mills and craft utensils.
