The Romantic Dress 2021
So, a major trend this year is the romantic dress. This style of dress is nothing new, but arguably has its origin in the Artistic Dress Movement, which took place in the latter half of the 19th century. Last year, a version of the romantic dress, called the nap dress (created by Hill House Home), became widely popular. Its idea is that you can chill at home and take a nap in a wearable, comfy and stylish dress. The nap dress is definitely a version of the romantic dress 2021 and is an updated version of the Artistic dresses; with statement sleeves, a smocked bodice and done in bright colors with a floral pattern! Pink, white, green, blue and red are some popular colors. The leopard print and polka dots can also be used instead of a floral pattern! What’s great about the romantic dress 2021 is that it comes in several versions and shapes. Some are more preppy, others are more casual! The definition isn’t too narrow, except that it’s often wide and voluminous.
How To Style It
As the dress has a lot going on with the color, the print and the volume of the sleeves; I suggest that you focus on the details. A pair of slippers will add a nice casual vibe to the dress, whilst some sneakers will give a more sporty, functional, look. I also love the idea of going for block heels or some chunky gladiator sandals. The straw bag is a nice alternative for a more romantic impression, but a leather bag could be a better balance. I love the idea of going for some gold jewellery for a more glam look, or why not a headband? A simple makeup look with some bold red lips could also be a fun alternative. If you want to layer your dress with some clothes, I think a leather vest could be a fun alternative or why not an oversized, chunky, cardigan? A blanket scarf could also be a good idea, without interfering with the rest of the dress.
Street Style Inspiration
And some inspo! The first pale dusty pink dress is such a gem. Love how the black accessories creates a more consistent look. The second dress is a gem, gorgeous pattern and love the maxi style. So chic with the boots and the sunnies that frames the face. Love love love the statement yellow dress in the third look. Gorgeous with the sculpted sleeves and the stylish sneakers. The straw hat in the fourth picture is such a summer mood with the lemon patterned dress. Also love the pink belt with the yellow dress in the last pic, way to go if you want to make your outfit pop!
