Have you noticed? Comfort shoes are a hot trend this spring 2021 season. As we start to emerge from our homes, and begin getting back out into the real world, we all need a little bit of comfort. While we want to dress up and get out of our loungewear, it’s hard to lose the comfort aspect we have enjoyed for months. This, coupled with the current 1990s footwear trends, it’s no wonder comfort shoes are hotter than hot right now.

Comfort shoes offer a lot to love. They are obviously comfortable, and they are easy to slip on and off. In addition, they offer style without sacrificing, you guessed it, comfort! Funny how that works!

Comfort shoes aren’t just hot for spring. Designers showed them on the runways at New York Fashion Week for the fall 2021 season too. This means that comfort shoes are a great investment to wear this season, and throughout the entire year. Love that!

So what style of comfort shoe should you invest in? Birkenstocks are the hottest of the hot right now. In fact, the long-time hero of the comfort shoe world has introduced a few new styles to covet this spring season. Even if you have a well-loved pair at home, you might want to take a look at their new styles. They are fabulous.

One trend in comfort shoes to watch for this season is woven leather. You’ll also see a lot of puffy leather, which is in line with the puffy handbag trend. If you like pillows, this is your thing!

Fall 2021 trends from the NYFW runways

The fall/winter 2021/22 collections from New York Fashion Week have all been presented. While the shows were presented digitally this season, we were still able to feel the overall vibe of the season, and recognize a few stand-out trends to look forward to for the cold weather season later this year.

Fall 2021 has been heavily influenced by the 1970s, 1980s, and mildly by the 1990s. We also saw some 1960s inspiration in the collections. Designers wanted to keep their collections comfortable, yet structured and chic enough for city streets. As consumers emerge from their homes this year, after being quarantined and kept at home for such a long time, people will want to start dressing up. That being said, they will want the comfort their loungewear spoiled them with over the last year. Therefore, designers worked hard to make street-worthy collections which are made more sustainably, and offer comfort.

So, without further ado, here are the standout trends from the fall 2021 NYFW collections!

Comfortable Street Style

The Power Suit

Pump up the volume sleeves

Giant squishy handbags

Totally tonal winter white

Cozy Sweaters

That’s a wrap! What do you think of the new fall 2021 collections?

BAF Weekly IT List

spring 2021 trends

Spring is in the air! While it is still winter outside, many of us are looking at spring for our closets to brighten up our days. The easiest way to wear a little bit of spring, and cheerfulness right now, is with spring lipstick and spring nail polish.

Another way we are all updating our wardrobes is with grey handbags. Since grey is 50% of the color of 2021, a grey handbag is an easy way to modernize our wardrobes for 2021. I’m loving this workhorse cross body bag, which happens to be a classic IT bag, and this fabulous, soft satchel; a current IT bag.

The square toe is hotter than hot for spring, and these spring mules are perfect for early spring; and throughout the season. I love the sculpted, stacked heel on them too. Stay tuned-they are part of my spring shoe capsule coming to the blog later this month!

Puffy sleeves are huge this year! They were all over the runways for both the spring/summer 2021 and fall/winter 2021/22 seasons. This means a puffy sleeve top, or a dress, is a fabulous investment for the year. I love this black, long sleeve puffy sleeve top for transitioning from winter into spring. It will be great on cooler spring and summer nights when the fog rolls in too. Loving it!

Outdoor fitness is hot, and will continue to be from now into the summer. These running shoes are fabulous for running, walking, and working out. I use mine for all of them!
