Spring 2021 Trends

Spring 2021 Trends

March 27th, 2021

The long-awaited arrival of spring is here, and with it came several trends worth noting. From upscale tracksuits to earth-toned tailoring, here’s everything you need to know to stay on trend this season.

1. Levelled Up Leisure Wear

That grey, stained sweatsuit you’ve been wearing for the past year? It’s time to put it away. Leisurewear has levelled up. 

We’re seeing a strong representation of sophisticated leisure looks from our brands of choice. Banded bottom tracksuits and tasteful hoodies will keep you looking refined on your errand-runs and Sunday afternoon coffeeshop-stops. 

2. The New Office Attire Norms

Offices are opening their doors, and you’re eager to get back to the grind. But, that doesn’t mean you’re ready to give up your work-from-home comfort. 

Luckily, pieces that prioritize comfort without compromising on style are big for this spring’s office attire. Subtle drawstring waistbands and tech-stretch button-up shirts keep things lax and loose in all the right places without looking unpolished. 

Swap out your blazer for a structured overshirt, and you’ve mastered the new norm of work attire. 

3. We’re Bringing Suiting Back 

Let’s talk tailoring. It’s back in a big but easygoing way. 

Light-weight construction with linen blends ranging in earth tones from washed blues to desert sand. Our must-have suit of the season: a mid-brown pinstripe suit from Luigi Bianchi. 

This look comes with an open-collar, no-sock policy that we can all get behind. Slip on your favourite well-worn loafers, and you’re set.

4. Retro Swag

There is an emphasis on effortlessly cool, 70s-inspired style this season. We’re not talking disco, we’re talking relaxed silhouettes and a laid-back, hazy-day feel. 

Channel the trend with a high-waisted, pleated trouser paired with a suede tassel loafer from Brunello Cucinelli. Or, check out one of our favourite pieces of the season, this brown polo from Gran Sasso. 

Lean into the look with a pair of oversized aviators with cognac-hued lenses.

5. West Coast Cool

Get ready for another round of tie-dyed tees and printed camp collars. This season’s collections show a major West Coast meets mid-90s influence. 

Channel SoCal with muted mints, pinks and browns, paired with a sneaker. Top it off with a denim jacket. 

The Canadian Tuxedo is having a moment, and we’re into it. Don’t be afraid to double down on denim. Keep it cool by varying the washes and colours. Try a faded black on the bottom and a medium blue wash on top.

6. Vintage Prep

If 90s-skater style isn’t your thing, kick it old school with the classics.

Sport an iconic triple-pony crested polo from Ralph Lauren — the ultimate preppy piece that never goes out of style. While you’re at it, throw a striped rugby polo in the mix, too. 

Both styles play nice in a business-casual setting and also carry some serious clout on the golf course.
