Are you ready to go OUT-side?! Yes, Rotaro Reader - it’s the day we’ve all been waiting for; 6 friends, parks, gardens, picnics! “But what should I wear?!” I hear you cry, sweatpant laden, perched on the edge of your sofa. Fear not friend! We’ve got you covered with the crème de la delicious crème of S/S21 trends that you can rent right now. 

Going over to Grandma’s house may still be off-limits, but raiding her wardrobe needn’t be. This trend borrows from a mix of bygone eras - the more kitsch, the better. Think puff sleeves, statement necklines and knitted cardi’s, topped off with polka dot prints, furnishing florals and plenty of pearls.

How to wear it: Layer a vintage style dress with a cute cardigan or knitted vest, or opt for a faux fur jacket in pretty pastels. Balance with a healthy side of irony by pairing with your favourite sneakers or go full-Babushka with a headscarf and clogs.

Key Designers: Batsheva, The Vampire’s Wife, Shrimps, Cinta the Label, Jakke

If you’re anything like me and craving a bit of all-out hedonism, you’re in luck; psychedelic prints, optic graphics, body-con dresses, catsuits, and rave-ready leggings have swept the scene in anticipation of trippy summer-time parties and festivals. Socially distanced, ofc.

How to Wear It: Go big or stay home. Head-toe-toe trippy prints are the look du jour. Opt for sets that you can style up or down once you’re all-raved-out and pair with mules and statement earrings.

Key Designers: Stine Goya, House of Sunny, Area, Ghospell, Maisie Wilen, LeCavalier

Not quite ready to shun the comfort of your sweats? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered with looks that offer both comfort and style. Roomy A-line shapes, adjustable straps and belted mid-lines are your best friend for post-pandemic party times. Supple silks, acres of ruffles and plenty-a-statement sleeve make for looks that ooze an easy, effortless elegance.

How to wear it: Pop those pastels in contrasting shades and team the look with sneakers for the park or sandals for all those postponed summer parties.

Key Designers: Yasmina Q, Jacquemus, Stine Goya, Petar Petrov
