Whilst we are loving oversized coats, two-piece loungewear sets and boots right now, we cannot wait to start putting our summer wardrobe together. This year, the looks of the season have played a major role in some of the most influential decades. We are loving some of the new catwalk looks, and you will definitely see some inspired pieces in the Ukiyo spring summer wardrobe. We have rounded up our favourite fashion trends spotted at SS21 fashion weeks. From Paris to Milan, these are trends you don’t want to miss.
Designers have demonstrated a fondness for black and white, most often paired together to make a big statement. Chequerboard patchwork dresses at Dolce & Gabbana used archive rolls of fabrics from previous collections, while crisp layering modelled a new mood at Chanel. If you’re wondering how to translate the monochrome trend into your every day look why not pair our French vanilla sweatshirt with our black high waist cycling shorts. Style with a pair of white trainers and a black bag for the ultimate off-duty monochrome look.

Brace yourself for the most stomach-clenching trend in spring. Bralettes are back and we are obsessed! They were last seen in 1998 when Jenifer Lopez killed her cream bralette look when she paired it with a butter-hued suit and a cowboy hat at the VMAs. A look that definitely made it onto the top designers’ mood boards this year.
Whether you’re wearing it solo, underneath a jacket or over a shirt, bralettes are so versatile and can be easily dressed up or down. We have paired our seamed front crop top with joggers for a casual everyday look or pair with jeans for a look straight off the runway.

Lovers of skinny denim and cigarette pants: hear us out. Baggy trousers have overtaken the streamlining benefits of your favoured slim-line silhouettes. This season, baggy trousers are showing their stylish edge, taking over as the silhouette of choice for your everyday trouser. If you want to try out this new style our grey and black wide-leg joggers are a good place to start. The luxe material means they’re comfortable and stylish, giving us Bottega and Louis Vuitton vibes.

With the overwhelming appearance on the runway and more recently spotted all over Netflix favourite Bridgerton, corset tops are going to be a big trend this spring-summer. A body-sculpting corset will make your silhouette look amazing, giving your looks that extra chic element. The traditional craft of corsetry was revived at Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Moschino and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. Consider it the very opposite of loungewear but a staple piece in your wardrobe this season.
Our Ukiyo Corset top is perfect for the transitional months with long sleeves and fully lined material. Not to mention it looks great on every figure. We are loving with this trend and will definitely be keeping it in our wardrobes.

If you've fallen in love with hoodies, and can't see how you're ever going to move out of their cosy cotton embraces, look at Prada, Hermès, Chanel and Celine's catwalks for tips on how to keep things low-key but still luxurious when (if) we emerge from this pandemic. They’ve taken hoodies to the next level using bold colour and prints and styling with pleated skirts.
At Ukiyo, we are not ready to give up hoodies quite yet! They are so easy to dress up and down, and you instantly look put together. We have a range of neutral hoodies that we have been loving pairing with matching joggers for the ultimate luxurious pandemic looks.
