Gone are the days of street style circuses, hectic schedules with back-to-back appointments, and long queues of fashion fanatics trying to get it in the most hyped fashion shows. This year they've been quietly replaced with virtual fashions presentations and zoom meetings, all thanks to the most unwelcome guest, COVID-19. But that shouldn’t stop us!

From uncommonly eye-popping florals to dreamlike soft tailoring, and showpiece knitwear — here’s 3oud.com’s round up of the fashion trends that shaped New York Fashion Fall 2021. One thing is for sure, there's hope for a dressed-up future.

Unapologetic Blooms

Although florals were never actually groundbreaking for spring, fall florals are a whole different level. Prints of viloet and gold have a certain charm that feels especially enchanting when the cold(er) weather hits. Designers of NYFW filled their virtual fashion presentations with floral motifs that spark joy, urging people to, simply put, dress up.

Designers like Oscar de la Renta, Gabriela Hearst, Prabal Gurung, and Victoria Beckham contrasted their floral details against the aforementioned traditional options. Think mixing together clashing prints in related color palettes, nothing too matchy-matchy was in sight, giving this trend a fresh fun take on floral dressing.

Oversized puffers

What better way to make you feel like getting a big soft hug on a chilly day than wearing an oversized puffer for an extra layer of warmth? Designers such as Khaite, Tom Ford, Staud, and Jason Wu presented a new wave of puffer dressing and styling, from tonal plain puffers, to ankle-length and “over” oversized puffers, this fall fashion trend is certain to make you feel empowered, whether you work it into your street style, or just enjoy its coziness for your next “kashta” with friends, until you’re allowed to plan your next ski trip that is.

Soft tailoring

Comfort will continue to drive future trends, that’s why Designers like Proenza Scholuer, Khaite, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jonathan Simkhai, Prabal Gurung, The Row made a case for more softly tailored apparel in 2021, showcasing tons of elevated suiting styles, but with a more relaxed and laidback feel using the sofest fabrics. Forget boring blazers and slacks—think fresh materials and exciting new silhouettes to give an old staple new life. Oversize and loose fits continue to dominate as they’re ideal for “working-from-home” Zoom meetings, and they’re the key to slowly easing back into normal-ish dressing after a year of loungewear.

Shine in Sequins

Sparkly sequins have been making their way into a range of collections as of late, maybe it’s the fashion world’s ode to dressing up? Maybe we need some sparkle in our life? Whatever the reason is, one thing is for sure, sequins are for way more than just festive events and parties. In fact, sequins seemed to be everywhere at New York Fashion Week, immersing everything from pants to dresses and bags, as seen at Carolina Herrera and 3.1 Phillip Lim. The trend has taught us one major fashion element: any occasion is appropriate for a dose of sparkle.
