Warmer temps are here in full force and you know a cute dress is your best friend on those beautiful sunny days. We took a look at what's trending for summer 2021 and we came up with a few great styles that you're sure to really love all summer long!
LITTLE WHITE DRESS
Pretty white dresses are the LBD (little black dress) of the summer months. This style is a tried and true favorite and is a must-have for 2021. You can dress it up or go for a day-at-the-beach casual look with these necessary neutral pieces. A white dress is a perfect pairing for a backdrop of glowing sun-kissed skin, an adorable pair of sandals, and the perfect pedi!
GO BIG OR GO HOME
These aren't your grandma's floral prints! Bright, bold florals are so "in" and so versatile this summer. This style is perfectly appropriate for work with an added blazer over your shoulders for a bit of structure or even for having brunch on Sunday out with your friends!
(Speaking of brunch... that reminds me, have you checked out one of our summer fave candles - Sunday Brunch?)
Fluff and poof are back in a BIG way! Think tailored up top with a bubble skirt, puffy sleeves on a fitted dress or how about the retro throwback we've pictured with a crinoline underneath for that extra bit of pizazz! These looks are derived from past decades' styles but have been tweaked to look cute and modern for your daily lifestyle. It's always so much fun to borrow details from generations past and a great way to keep your wardrobe fresh and interesting!
Here's another look influenced by the past. Whether it's a low V or a sexy little circle cut out exposing the lower back, the open-back dress is a stunning way to show a little skin while still keeping it pretty modest.
Style Tip: For the V cut back, take a long necklace, (preferably one without a clasp) put it over your head, and turn it backward so it hangs down the open space at the back of the dress. This looks amazing with a fine gold chain with a charm on it or a long strand of pearls.
ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY
Did mini dresses ever really go out of style? Not in my closet! If you haven't considered this fun look in a while, this is the year to bring it back! While the mini dress may be on the shorter side, you can definitely dress this one up for cocktails with a blazer and heels or make it a bit more playful with a denim jacket and a pair of converse. This is another versatile one that you're sure to get years of wear out of.
MIX & MATCH or MATCH & MATCH
Crop tops are still having their moment in 2021 and this style definitely makes the jump from t-shirts to dresses with ease. While you can find these in top/bottom matched sets, the fun thing about 2-piece styles is how you can create a really unique outfit by pairing mismatched pieces. Grab a flowy skirt and your fave crop top and you're ready to be on-trend and out the door with ease.
Wait! We can't let you go without letting you know that we have some new summer candles you may have missed:
