Not looking for designer clothes?
The trends for 2021 are the cable-knit, chunky, oversized, and drop shoulders. They are here to stay with you over fall since last spring and finally gave us some comfortable fashion moments (I’m not over the 90s’ strappy sandals come back). But there is always room for a dramatic turtleneck poncho or a timeless luxurious cashmere cardigan.
Get ready for sweater weather:
