The end of 2020 gave a tiny ray of hope that summer of 2021 might look slightly better. Cut to April and we’re experiencing a déjà vu of the past year and not a pretty one at that. With house arrest as our reality for the foreseeable future, it’s time we revisit all the little happiness hacks we tried so as to uplift our dull spirits. If you ask me, a fashion features writer, I’d say the quickest way to take your mood from 0-100 is to dress up in what makes you feel good and motivated. Many of us took WFH dressing seriously but if you’re looking to switch up your collection, here are 7 new spring-spelling and work-from-home-appropriate collections you can take a pick from.
1. Vedika M
If you gravitate towards colour, Vedika M‘s summer’21 loungewear line will most definitely appeal to you. From free-flowing silhouettes that will let you nap as deeply as you want while also making for a super suave at-home look, this collection is driven by both, comfort and style. Made using summer’s favourite, cotton, the pieces will feel butter soft against your skin; ideal for soaring temperatures.
2. Gulabo Jaipur
Known for their captivating block prints and soothing colour choices, Gulabo Jaipur‘s spring/summer’21 collection is another stunning representation of their play of prints and colours. Simplistic kurtas coupled with straight-cut pants, A-line shift dresses and coordinated sets that will work all year round comprise the collection.
3. Swatti Kapoor
There’s no going wrong with sustainable fabrics like Khadi which is the primary focus of designer Swatti Kapoor‘s newest collection. If you’re a minimalist at heart and love a rustic vibe of sorts, these Khadi pieces will serve as an ideal pick for you. Against ivory backdrops feature dainty floral prints on silhouettes like flared kurtas and pants, sarees, pleated skirts and more.
Fond of oversized-everything featuring cleans lines, quirky prints and calming colours? You need to get your hands on Three‘s spring 2021 collection. You’ve got silhouettes like flared maxi dresses, floaty kurtas and tunics to pick from, perfect for all your virtual meetings and hangouts with your friends.
5. SAND by Shirin
When most of your time is spent at home, it’s a no-brainer that fluidity and comfort are two sartorial factors we all actively look out for. But if you’re a fashionista and believe that style should not be compromised whether you’re dressing for outdoors or indoors, SAND by Shirin‘s new collection will have your heart. Jumpsuits, rompers and dresses painted with earthy hues and made using skin-loving fabrics, the collection has a little something to suit a variety of tastes.
6. Shruti Sancheti
Sprinkle a little bit of summer into your WFH wardrobe with groundbreaking florals and a variety of other prints with a little help from Shruti Sancheti‘s collection, Spring Meadows. Easy-breezy dresses in white, while some in bright hues, accented with lace, bows and tassels define the line. Strappy tops to beat the summer heat to flirty dresses for your virtual date nights and simplistic kaftans and long-sleeved blouses for ’em virtual meetings are a few silhouettes to name.
7. Myriad Activewear
Some of us like to spend our days in activewear so as to motivate ourselves to get that daily workout in. But if you’re looking to put a stylish spin on your workout-wear, give these athleisure pieces from Myriad Activewear‘s latest collection a try. Not only will you be well on-trend, considering the rage behind this style, but also be motivated throughout the day to exercise. Bonus point, you’ll get bright colours and eye-catching prints to colour your wardrobe with.
For someone who likes to dress up on a daily for that motivational push, I knew I had to filter out my existing WFH wardrobe and add some new pieces to it just for that tinge of excitement. In search of that, I came across these 7 collections I absolutely love. What about you? Which one is your favourite? Tell us in the comments below.
