Dress season is creeping up on us fast, so if you’re ready to get ahead on the trendiest styles of the season, you’re in the right place. I’ve done a few round-ups of dresses on the blog recently from wedding guest dresses to affordable finds. However, today’s post will cover trends specifically. Think head-turning styles with of-the-moment details that you’ll want to take on vacation or wear for a night out. They’ll breathe new life into your wardrobe while remaining relevant over the next few months. Keep scrolling for the best dress trends of summer 2021.
Cutout details were huge in knitwear last fall and winter – and they’ve made their way into summer dresses. I’m such a fan because this small detail makes for a sexy look that doesn’t feel too revealing. It’s one of my top picks for hot summer nights!
Neck interest is huge this summer and we’re seeing that in the form of unique straps and the return of the halter in tops and dresses alike. They don’t just add visual interest to the most minimal silhouettes – but also bare skin in a catchy way.
It’s hard not to notice the ubiquitous knit dress whether you’re scrolling on Instagram or perusing a fashion magazine. They might not seem that appealing, but the perfect one can resolve all your summer style problems. You can wear them to work, on a date, or even to a wedding.
Coming out of quarantine for the first time in months means embracing styles that marry fashion and comfort. Nothing does that better than a voluminous, tiered dress. They’re breezy, swoon-worthy, and feel amazing on the skin.
Color is a trending theme across the board when it comes to summer fashion. Although you can’t go wrong with flashy neon colors, I’m digging lighter, pastel tones for a soft, romantic vibe. Plus, I find them to be more timeless and wearable.
Puff Sleeve Dress
Whether you opt for a bold saturated color or a fun floral print, puff sleeve dresses are no doubt one of the buzziest styles of the season. They’re attention grabbing, flirty, and stylish at the same time, making them highly desirable for special outings. Midi-length pieces are ideal for the daytime while micro minis are great at night.
