If you're planning to refresh your wardrobe and wanting to look on-trend, here are a few things that fashion experts say are going to be trendy.

One easy addition is colour.

Personal stylist Lana Blanc told Insider, "I predict that pink will be a very popular colour in 2021. The spring 2021 runways were full of pink silk, pink pants, pink accessories, and even pink details in tweed."

If you kept your tracksuit from 20 years ago, good news! It might be back in fashion.

Stylist Brittnay Diego told Insider, "The past few years have seen trends borrow from the 1990s, but Y2K styles will be back in 2021. Expect pieces like matching velour tracksuits to make a major comeback."
