3 Hot Spring’21 Trends in 1 Dress

3 Hot Spring'21 Trends in 1 Dress

Hi Everyone,

Really I feel like starting this post with a “woop woop Spring is in the air”! Perfect blue skies outside and it’s definitely time to get out those pretty Spring dresses.

With a lack of Street Style pictures to refer back to I am constantly being asked what are the hot trends for Spring 2021. Especially when it comes to dresses.

This is a short but sweet post giving you 3 hot Spring’21 trends in 1 dress…

3 Hot Spring'21 Trends in 1 Dress
  1. Length

This Spring sees the trend when it comes to dress lengths to be either very short or very long! Stay away from knee length, just above the knee or just below the knee everything!

Decide to wear either very long – down to the ankles or slightly above, or very short.

My dress is from the Italian label Eleventy. Last visit I met the creative director and CEO, Paolo Zuntini – read the full story here.


2. Stripes

Anything striped is hot on the Spring’21 Spring list so of course it makes sense that striped dresses are also an item!

Note stripes don’t have to be vertical – you can also get away with horizontal strips making you look slim. See a previous article written on this topic here.

3. Buttoned fronts

Everyone needs a totally frontal button up dress this Spring/Summer. They are so handy to have – you can wear them as a dress or as a coat or simply slung over swim wear.

Button them fully down or be a little daring by leaving buttons at the bottom open…

Remember the shoes will decide where you are wearing your outfit!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. very nice I love your blog and stripes somehow look also very nice and somehow very versatile love your Ideas

  2. Gorgeous dress. And the green pumps have my love too.
    I don’t know whether I will follow this Spring 2021 ‘rule’ of skirt length. I have bought a long black one, but I am not going to throw out my lovely other dresses.

    1. Oh yes, please don’t throw away your other dresses – they will come back to the hype of fashion.
      Plus these days it is more about style than fashion and your style is beautiful!
