I Scrolled Through Next’s Spring 2021 Collection—Here’s What I’d Recommend

January 21, 2021 at 06:00AM

We’ve got to that time of year when the spring collections are finally starting to roll in. It might not be the thing at the forefront of our minds (for obvious reasons), but there’s something about the entry of cotton dresses and light jackets that fills us with a tiny bit of hope, even if it’s just for the promise of warmer temperatures and longer days. Well, for what it’s worth, the spring collections aren’t looking too shabby, and we’re here to help you navigate the maze of new season fashion.

This week we’ve focused our spotlight on British high street institution, Next. It might not be known for the most cutting edge of designs, but it’s a consistent failsafe for affordable wardrobe heroes that look great, whether you’re 18 or 80. In recent seasons, the brand has also become so much better at offering subtle nods to current styles, without falling prey to transient trends. Whilst scrolling through Next’s new season drop I have to admit that I was surprised by how many items I clicked on. There really is so much to love.

Particular highlights include a wide-lapel zip-up top, which would layer so nicely over a check blazer, and I was also unexpectedly drawn to a monochrome loungewear co-ord, which looked undeniably high-end with its colour-blocking print. There’s also plenty of statement collars, throw-on jackets and versatile dresses—essentially everything you need to kick off the new season in style. Scroll down to see and shop my complete edit.

Layer this knit under a checked blazer.

The denim silhouette of the season.

Use this trench to add a ’70s twist to any outfit.

Ruffled collars in dusty blue? Yes please.

A jewellery staple if we ever saw one.

I think this loungewear co-ord looks so expensive.

Finish the look with the matching trackies.

So into the Scandi-inspired print on this knit.

Just add chunky boots and a roll-neck now then swap out with Birkenstocks come summer.

Layering never looked to chic.

Next jumps on the big-collar bandwagon with very chic results.

This will be so cosy for WFH.

This striped shirt feels very Princess Di.

Complete the royal throwback with leggings and riding boots.

Would you look at that collar?

This checked skirt has us dreaming of our ’90s wardrobes. 


This jumpsuit will flatter every body shape. 

So into the cinching belt on this jacket.

This beautiful hue will pair so nicely with beige and browns.

I never normally wear prints, but I might make an exception for this midi.

Dress down with sneakers and a trench and dress up with knee-high boots and gold jewellery.

Classic gingham feels so spring-ready.

A smart blouse for all your Zoom meeting needs.
