Happy National Dress Day 2021 to our fellow fashionistas! We LOVE this holiday and we’re celebrating with a dress trend style guide and a special announcement, so be sure to read through to the end for all the juicy details. Our influencers are always ahead of the curve when it comes to styling the latest looks, so let’s steal some inspo from them and celebrate all things dressy!
Layering is totally the move right now. There are so many fun ways to add dimension and flair to your look with a couple simple styling pieces. Our favorites are overall dresses paired with long sleeves and matching sets like the cardigan and dress look @tami.wami is sporting!
Classic Feminine Details
Inspired by the boho and cottage core aesthetics, sweet and feminine details are having a total moment. Puff sleeves, lace and crochet, gentle ruffles and more are popping up on dresses and we are so here for it. Ring in spring with romantic looks for lunch dates, park picnics or just a little backyard photo shoot.
The 2000s called, and we answered. The ultra-sweet and playful trends of this blinged-out era are back for spring 2021 with a new color palette and little details to make you want to own, well, all of these. Youthful prints and simple silhouettes make these dresses so easy to style for any kind of look you’re aiming for. Add some iconic Y2K accessories like shaped sunnies, strappy heels and mini purses to bring the whole look to life!
Casual One-and-Done Looks
The best part about a dress? You get the maximum effect of an amazing, put-together look with minimum effort. Comfy dresses, jumpsuits and rompers are a girl’s best friend, especially for those of us on-the-go, in a hurry or just not in the mood to style out a whole look today. We have cozy pieces in soft and cuddly sweatshirt material that feel as good as PJs and look nice enough to wear out in the world!
