Whether you’re looking to buy some of the biggest trends of the moment or want to get an early start wearing the ones we’re predicting will be huge in 2021, I’ve got you covered. I hunted for the best pieces to add to your basket right now—plus, they’re all affordable finds that ring in for under £100. These are popping up all over Instagram and I have a strong suspicion they’ll be selling out in the foreseeable, so you’ll want to act quickly before they do.

Ahead, I’m highlighting some of the cool fashion trends I can’t get enough of. Yep, you’ll find everything from chunky loafers and ripped jeans that are trending right now to second-skin tops and and bubblegum pink that will be defining trends for the year ahead. Plus, some cosy finds you’ll want to live in. Here, shop the affordable trends, starting at just £15.

Ripped Jeans

Ripped jeans are the biggest denim trend to emerge this year. If you're ready to add the '90s-inspired trend to your wardrobe, you're in luck because I found the best affordable versions to buy before they sell out.

Shop the trend:

Zara Ripped Mom Fit Jeans (£30)

River Island Carrie Ripped Jeans (£42)

Topshop Mid Blue Double Ripped Mom Tapered Jeans (£43)

Bubblegum Pink

Get ready for the bubblegum pink trend to take over in 2021. Spotted all over the spring/summer 21 runways, it's set to be one of the defining colours next year.

Shop the trend:

H&M Puff-Sleeved Dress (£20)

Warehouse Slouch Jumper (£52)

Marks & Spencer Double Breasted Blazer Coat with Wool (£79)

Second-Skin Tops

Our editors can't stop talking about second-skin tops. They're the ultimate basics to replace all of your standard tees.

Shop the trend:

Monki Mesh Top (£20)

COS Printed Long-Sleeve Top (£45)

Ganni Mesh Mock Neck Top (£95)

Chunky Loafers

The shoe trend every fashion person has been wearing recently? Chunky loafers. I found affordable versions that look just as cool as the pricey designer ones.

Shop the trend:

& Other Stories Heeled Leather Penny Loafers (£95)

Vagabond Kenova Loafers (£85)

Zara Treaded Sole Loafers (£30)

Relaxed Sweatpants

Sure, joggers have been a huge trend this year but now we're seeing relaxed silhouettes take over. Pair them with anything from a matching hoodie to a pretty cable knit sweater.

Shop the trend:

H&M Joggers (£15)

Hush Amie Joggers (£50)

Topshop Black Quilted Knitted Joggers (£43)

Peter Pan Collars

This trend has been in rotation for a while now but is showing no signs of slowing down. Big collars for the win.

Shop the trend:

Monki Large-Collared Blouse (£30)

Mango Baby Doll Neck Cardigan (£50)

Arket Embroidered Poplin Blouse (£59)


Yep, another colour I'm predicting will be huge next year. Bold tangerine shades were another runaway trend on the S/S 21 runways, so it's only a matter of time before it's everywhere.

Shop the trend:

Zara Square Heeled Sandals (£50)

& Other Stories Satin Skirt (£59)

Le Specs Bumpin Sunglasses (£53)
