Hello, 2021! The holidays are over and whether you’re working on your resolutions or you totally forgot about them, it’s time to get up to date for the new year. A wardrobe changeup always kicks the year off right, especially when you want to reinvent your look from last year. Goodbye sweatpants, leggings, and hoodies—it looks like in 2021 we’ll finally be able to show off those stunner outfits again. Filling your closets with on-point winter style from brands like Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana will give you the most amazing stand out style after a year of staying in!
For statement-making pieces, there’s probably no better brand than Gucci. A bold sneaker or sweater can make a whole outfit, and they are the go-to for iconic handbags and accessories, not to mention, their logo-branded ready-to-wear is perfect for the days you still need to stay in. They’ve been reinventing the world of luxury (and women’s closets) for over a century, creating bold, iconic designs that encapsulate a subtle exuberance, romantic maximalism, and extreme elegance. Whether it’s their classic G’s and horse-bit hardware or their modern juxtaposition of color and eccentric patterns, they are a must for your closet this year.
Their latest collection, a favorite from artistic director Alessandro Michele, combines silk dresses, sophisticated sportswear, tweed skirts, and colorful Mickey Mouse tops. And the sneakers with bright, bold colors and capital letters that say FAKE across the side are attention grabbers. It’s a combination of traditional luxury from the century-old Florentine house and modern, offbeat looks that can revive an entire closet. Reinvent your look this season with some of our favorite pieces including the women’s GG coat, the Rhyton Disney x Gucci sneakers (with our favorite—Donal Duck!), and the Beverly Hills cherry sweater.
If you need a few more lady-like pieces (because sneakers and sweatshirts can still feel like loungewear) try a few of the flirty, feminine pieces from Dolce & Gabbana and Self Portrait. Their dresses are beautiful standouts that call attention with dramatic patterns and colors, or romantic laces and texture. Dolce & Gabbana will reinvent your style for a new year with gorgeous, eye-catching florals and flirty cuts, with a silhouette that knows how to hug all the right spots. (Goodbye drab sweatpants!) For see-through laces and delicate feminine styles, pick up a few of Self Portrait’s bestsellers that will be your new go-to’s.
But reinventing your wardrobe for the new year is easiest with a few choice bags or a new pair of shoes. Add to your wardrobe to elevate your current look or pair them with a few new staples for a complete wardrobe overhaul. The iconic bags at Gucci are simple but iconic—that’s why so many have been bestsellers for decades. If you want something a little funkier check out their shoes—skip the loafers and opt for neon rubber slides or funky open track sandals. Whatever additions you make to your closet this year, make it fun, bold, and amazing, because, after this last year, there’s nothing we want more than to reinvent our wardrobe of loungewear with some of the best style luxury brands have to offer.
