The 2021 Summer Trends We’re Buying Right Now

The Everygirl’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. We only recommend products we genuinely love.





Over the past 12 months, our shopping game has needed to do a complete 180. While in-person shopping used to be our favorite kind of retail therapy, we’ve collectively needed to pivot to shopping online instead.

While we used to be able to leisurely shop online with little to no urgency, it being our only option means that things sell out a lot quicker than they used to—especially the good stuff. If there’s something you really want, you have to pull the trigger before you get the dreaded “sold out” notification when you scroll down to your size.

Summer 2021 is just around the corner, which means it’s officially time to up our summer wardrobes for the best season of the year. Don’t know where to start? These are the pieces in our carts that we’re grabbing while we still can.

6 Gen Z Fashion Trends We’re Actually Wearing

The Everygirl’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. We only recommend products we genuinely love.





Up until a mere few weeks ago, Gen Z wasn’t on my radar whatsoever. I reluctantly got onto TikTok, scrolled past every Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae video that came up, and blissfully lived in a time where a generational war over skinny jeans hadn’t yet ensued. 

But as we know, a hearty amount of turmoil has taken place over the past few weeks, and you can’t so much as mutter the words “Gen Z” or “Millennial” without getting a reaction. As a self-proclaimed neutral, unbiased source on the matter, I’m just here to report the facts, and the fact is that some—yes, some— Gen Z trends are worth your time, no matter what year you were born.

Looking to spice up your wardrobe this season? Take a page out of Gen Z’s book.

 

1. Oversized jeans

I know, I know, this is going to trigger some people who want nothing more than their skinny jeans—but don’t knock these until you try them. They look effortless, flattering, and, dare I say, younger than their—ahem—tighter alternatives.

What are we going to do when it’s too hot outside to wear the sweatpants we’ve been living in since September? Easy: swap them out for sweat shorts. Bonus points if they’re in a fun color with a coordinating T-shirt or crewneck.

Matching workout sets have been around for a while now, but wearing them as your regular outfit? Comfortable and chic. On a chillier day, toss a jacket over top and pair them with your favorite sneakers for the ultimate athleisure look.

I hadn’t owned a cardigan since the early aughts until 2021, and the thing that changed my mind on them were these cropped, thin, completely un-Grandma-like versions. They’re perfect to transition into warm weather, or to pair with shorts for a chillier night out come summer.

It’s taken us a while to warm up to the chunky sneaker trend, and while you probably won’t see us wearing the really intense pairs (you know the ones), we do love these more understated chunky options. They liven up a look like your minimal white sneakers couldn’t dream of.
