When you need a break from your sweats.
I kicked off 2020 resolving to go on at least 20 dates, a so-called carrot on a stick that I hoped would force me out into the cruel, daunting dating world and out of my comfort zone. Then, of course, the world changed. And so too did dating. Zoom dates became the norm. Plus, the age-old dating habits and phenomenons we’d come to know and hate, such as ghosting and paper-clipping, were replaced with COVID-era versions, including apocalypsing (treating every relationship like it’s your last) and wokefishing (when someone pretends to hold progressive views to get laid). “This past year, we’ve seen the dating landscape shift in unexpected ways – from new digital dating conventions to all-new approaches to relationships,” says Priti Joshi, Bumble’s vice president of marketing strategy and operations. But she’s predicting that more changes are coming. After all, 55% of daters have a dating-related resolution for 2021, including taking things slower and raising the bar when it comes to vetting matches. Here, Bumble’s predictions for the dating trends we’ll be seeing in 2021. Hardballing This term essentially means “dating like the CEO” and not messing around with partners who aren’t serving you. “Over the past year, almost 70% feel the pandemic has given them an abundance of time to focus on themselves and 43% shared they have more confidence to say what is and isn’t right for them in their dating life,” according to a Bumble release. I’m definitely planning to incorporate hardballing into my life in 2021. Astrolove We all know a Cancer who won’t date a Libra. In the next year, more and more folks will be looking for compatibility according to their zodiac sign, Bumble predicts. After adding an “astrology badge” feature to their app, Bumble noted that people who shared their sign had almost a 60% increase in their average number of matches. And not to further feed their ego, but Leos got the most matches of any star sign in 2020, according to Bumble. Slow Dating It’s like throwing your relationship in a crockpot. It might take a bit to heat up, but the end results are so worth the wait. Folks who “slow date” in 2021 will take the time to get to know each other before meeting up in person, and will be more selective in general — a smart idea in COVID times, to be honest. Most Bumble matches who are slow dating during the pandemic start with a video date before moving on to a socially distanced meet-up. Yes, More Virtual Dating A Bumble survey found that 46% of daters prefered virtual first dates over meeting up in person right away. In the U.S., the use of the app’s Voice Call and Video Chat features increased by 70% after the State of Emergency was declared this past spring. Of course, if you’re getting sick of Zoom dates, there are ways to mix it up. You could play trivia, have a Netflix Party, or play an online game like Quiplash. The Rise Of “New Dawn Daters” Bumble says one in four of their US users will be classified as “New Dawn Daters,” or folks who broke up with their long-term partner amid the pandemic. “They’re now single and ready to start dating again, but many are entirely new to dating apps and understandably anxious about dating right now,” Bumble notes. Fingers crossed that these cuties will refrain from chatting about their exes on the first date. Like what you see?

I've never been a fan of trousers, but this checkered-print trend has me second guessing myself. Since I've been living in my sweatpants, I haven't been feeling particularly inspired to dress up or even think about wearing real pants. While I've been seeing the checkered print absolutely everywhere this year (shoutout to my fave KJ Plumb, who's created some of the most famous prints you've seen all over Instagram), I decided that it's time to cave. I particularly love that the quirky gingham print makes me feel nostalgic for early 2000s styles - which have their roots in the '50s and '60s - and a lot of the pants come in bold colors like neon green, cherry red, and baby blue. Most of the trousers also come in a wide-leg silhouette and feature a high-waist, making your legs look longer. I also love the fact that you can wear them during any season, and it's fun to wear them in the winter if you're looking for a splash of color to brighten up your mood when it's gloomy outside. If you're not sure how to style the pants, we've turned to our favorite style stars to lend you a helping hand. Scroll on to see how it's done and shop our favorite selects too.

A new year means new trends. Fashion experts are predicting that statement sleeves, earthy colors, and tracksuits will be all the rage this year.
As we take our pandemic uniform — matching sweatsuits, tie-dye, Nap Dresses, and more — firmly into 2021, outerwear is getting a seasonal makeover, with a number of new winter coat trends taking over Instagram’s fashion feeds.While monochrome, minimal dressing has been trending for the past year, coats and jackets are anything but classic in 2021, with printed, can’t-miss styles dominating this cold-weather dressing season. Textured quilted and leather-like fabrics are also getting more popular with shoppers looking to upgrade their outerwear without making too much of a style statement. And, as the pandemic’s hold continues, prompting many to spend more time outdoors in the winter, designers are responding with longer and more winter-proof silhouettes that are as fashion-forward as they are practical.Ahead, five coat trends that will be everywhere this winter season.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

Checkerboard Print JacketBlame it on Queen's Gambit and our newly reinvigorated obsession with chess, but this mod fashion trend is back. While the Stand Studio Nino faux fur coat, the style that has been all over Instagram (pictured here), is currently mostly sold out — at the time of publishing, Bergdorf Goodman has one size left— there are other outerwear iterations of the trend.If a full-length, faux fur checkerboard coat is too much of a style commitment for you, the print also comes in more casual fleece and short jacket options.Stand Studio Marcella Jacket, $, available at Lisa Says GahCurrent Mood Checkered Faux Fur Coat, $, available at Dolls KillKule The Checkered Puffer, $, available at ShopbopVans Embers Jacket, $, available at VansPrinted PufferThe biggest outerwear winter trend, the printed puffer, is also one of the most fun. With prints ranging from floral to tropical and animal, these jackets instantly add a statement — not to mention warmth — to any cold-weather look.Puffers from Farm Rio (pictured here) — an abashedly happy and print-heavy brand from Brazil — are especially beloved by Instagram's most stylish.

Danish export Ganni's Recycled Ripstop Quilted Coat (pictured here), in particular, made internet rounds thanks to its matching detachable collar (sold separately and currently sold out) — another one of fall and winter's big trends — and dress-like silhouette.For colder temperatures, choose a quilted coat with some down fill.Ganni Recycled Ripstop Quilt Coat, $, available at GanniCOS Mid-Length Reversible Quilted Padded Jacket, $, available at COSZara Down Puffer Coat, $, available at ZaraH&M Quilted Jacket, $, available at H&MLeather Trench CoatThanks to celebrities like Katie Holmes and Zendaya, classic tan trench coats have gotten a winter upgrade.
