The year 2020 feels like the year without fashion. We’ve barely been leaving the house, so the biggest opportunities for any kind of fashion moment are that walk around the neighborhood or a walk down the grocery store aisle.

Even then, the chances that we change out of our matching sweatsuits to go outside are extremely slim. But hey, even if that oversized T-shirt you’ve been wearing for three straight days seems anything but inspired, the clothing trends of this year are actually influencing what we’ll be wearing in 2021.

According to US-based image sharing and social media service Pinterest which recently revealed “The trends that will define 2021” roundup, the platform has identified one primary fashion trend for 2021 and they’re calling it “athflow” which is basically a mix between athleisure and elegance.

According to the site, its all about “Flowy pants, casual jumpsuits and oversized outfits will replace athletic clothes as the new go-to loungewear. Athflow is professional enough for the ‘office,’ stretchy enough for the yoga mat and comfy enough for the couch.”

Read on to find out the fashion trends that are going to dominate 2021 after a year spent indoors.

1. Cloud-like cardigans

The cardigan trend has officially merged with the cozy loungewear trend and it’s a match made in heaven, says Pinterest.

2.  Cotton jumpsuits

If you’ve ever been intimidated by jumpsuits in the past (like if you’re just worried you’ll look like a grown-up in a baby onesie), that’s okay, but now’s the time to give them a shot. With the comfy jumpsuits trending, there are so many great options out there that look super chic and on-trend but feel as cozy as pajamas.

3. Oversized sweaters and sweatshirts

This is a pants-optional trend and probably the most easiest. Whether you’re in a jumbo hoodie that practically swallows you whole or rocking an oversized sweater with some thigh-high boots, you’re doing it right and no one can tell you otherwise.

4. Super soft everything

Think plush sherpa, buttery velvet, and never-scratchy knits. Basically, anything that makes you go, “I need to touch that” and feels like a hug in clothing form, that’s what 2021 is going to be all about and its not surprising given that we spend 2020 snuggling in our cozy beds.

So, what will be your go-to-fashion in 2021?
