Hi everyone! It’s Sharlene @sosewdressmaking and welcome to my first Trend round up blog for Lamazi Fabrics. I am going to take you through the biggest trends from high fashion to the high street for this Spring 2021 season.
Pantone Colours for 2021
I am always interested in what the ‘colour of the year’ will be. Lemon yellow popped up everywhere on the catwalks this season, and teamed with this soft grey it will make a perfect outfit.

Check out these fabrics below for some inspiration.
After the year we have all been through it is no wonder fashion buyers have been snapping up anything bright, colourful and joyful for this season. The key colours to look out for are Hot Pinks, Citrus Orange, Lemon Yellow and Zingy Greens. In terms of style more is more! Big collars, big sleeves, big ruffles, the lot. If it makes you smile then go for it.

Lamazi have one of the best selection of bright printed viscose fabrics which are perfect for this trend. Check out some of my favourites below.
The new Dashwood Studio Circle Line collection of Rayon fabrics are sure to bring some joy to your wardrobe.

For patterns I would recommend the Nina Lee Park Lane dress, the Deer & Doe Magnolia and Myosotis, or the Friday Patter Company Adrianna Dress. Or if you are feeling adventurous you could take a simple pattern like the Tilly and the Buttons Indigo or The Avid Seamstress “The Shift Dress” and add a big sleeve or a few extra ruffles.
Whatever you choose, make sure it brings joy! And let's all dream about the day we can wear our fabulous frocks out in public again.
Make A Statement on Zoom
Unfortunately video calls are still going to be a big part of our work and social lives at the moment even as restrictions start to ease. So it's still going to be “business on the top, pj’s on the bottom”.
My top fabric picks for these patterns are a little more muted for anyone who shies away from bold colours.

And don't forget to top your outfit off with a headband from the Lamazi fabrics x Adornments by Rosheen collection for the ultimate video call statement. The new scrunching headbands are beautiful.
Step Up Your Loungewear
I also cannot deny that loungewear will still play a massive part in our wardrobes for the next few months. Lamazi have some beautiful luxurious fabrics if you want to ‘step up’ your loungewear game. The Mind the Maker Cashmere and Wool blends and Meet Milk tencel sweat fabrics will make the ultimate luxurious loungewear sets.
As the weather is starting to heat up (hopefully) fibre content will play an important part. Fabrics with wool content will help keep you cool when it is warm and warm when it is cold. Likewise, loungewear fabrics with natural fibres will be breathable coming into the warmer weather and still keep you comfortable.

The new range of Mind The Maker Organic Slub Jacquards are perfect for this trend too, keeping you cosy with some beautiful spring shades and natural fibres.
Cosy jumpers, joggers and track jackets will be elevated in these fabrics. Or why not try a wrap cardigan and loose trousers for a different take on the trend. I love the idea of a long cardigan layered over a satin slip dress and cosy socks.
Garments from & Other Stories
The range of Elegance Viscose Satin will be perfect for this or an Atelier Brunette viscose.
For pattern suggestions to recreate this trend Style Arc and Named Clothing have a great selection. Check out the Ruri Sweatpants, Sointu Loose Tee and Ninni Culottes by Named Clothing or the Como Knit Cardigan or Sabel Boyfriend knit Cardigan by Style Arc.
If colour isn’t your thing, never fear, Monochrome is going to be a big trend this season too. This is a great way to experiment with colour blocking your garment or choose a classic black and white print.

Lamazi has a great selection of fabrics to cater to this trend, and some Great Plains if you want to give colour blocking a go.
