4 FRINGE DRESS

Fringe dress, especially a fringed dress with extra long fringes is a very big fashion trend for 2021. If not the biggest. Fringed dresses will be in style for fall winter 2021/22, too.

FRINGED DRESSES TO BUY NOW AND WEAR FOR THE NEXT 15 MONTHS

5 MODEST TEACHER DRESS

Looking for a comfortable dress, you could wear every day and everywhere? Then get a modest teacher dress. A modest teacher dress is not only very practical but also very fashionable for summer 2021.

SPRING SUMMER DRESSES YOU CAN WEAR EVERYWHERE

6 ROMANTIC DRESS

Prefer romantic, ladylike dresses over a simple slip dress? I actually prefer romantic dresses. At least this season. What can I say, I simply fall in love with this dress. Don’t worry, I didn’t purchase all the different alterations of this dress. Yet! But I plan to. Mr Self-Portrait truly knows how to steal my heart.

And I’m pretty sure he will steal your heart too. Isn’t this lilac romantic dress just gorgeous? I bought it recently.

7 VOLUMINOUS DRESS

The next most fashionable dress of summer 2021 and fall winter 2020/21 is, with no doubt, the voluminous dress. Also known as the babydoll dress.

Browse through the widget below to find some of the most stylish voluminous dresses. I bought this voluminous dress at H&M and this long sleeve mini babydoll dress from & Other Stories while selecting summer 2021 dresses for this post.

By the way, have you seen how I wear my black Rotate voluminous dress for Zoom party already? Trust me, you need a voluminous dress if you feel low and can’t leave your home.

Obviously, a shirtdress with puff sleeves is not the only shirtdress in style for summer 2021. A utilitarian shirtdress is in fashion for summer 2021, too. 

Surely a simple white shirt dress is a classic piece that never goes out of style. But you might get bored with a basic shirt dress after wearing it for years in a row. So perhaps consider buying a slightly different shirt dress this year. Perhaps this shirtdress with puff sleeves or this utilitarian shirtdress

13 HOME DRESS

Are you working from home this season? Then get a home dress.

If you were born in the 00s then you might find a home dress, a new fashion trend. But no, a home dress is not an entirely new fashion trend. Your grandma wore a home dress back in the 60s already.

Even so, I don’t recommend you to browse through her old clothes to find her home dress. Trust me, none of her home dresses will make you look as stylish as the home dresses from the gallery below.
