We've survived a dark time together, and despite (or perhaps because of) the uncertainty ahead, your customers are ready to celebrate! They crave soft fabrics and comfortable designs that are full of color and beautiful patterns. We're seeing a mix of retro, classic, and new looks, shades, and details on the runways. Stay on-trend with bold, saturated colors, retro floral prints, tribal patterns, cutouts, and ruffles. Let's take a look at the plus size boutique dresses your customers want to rock for 2021.
Plus Size Midi Dresses
Flattering for all body shapes, women's plus size midi dresses are versatile enough to wear to work, on a date, or for a leisurely day with friends. With the hem falling just at the knee and a relaxed silhouette, this plus size midi dress with a turtleneck and pockets is ideal for women with apple or pear-shaped bodies. Add a wide belt for those with a rectangle or hourglass shape to snatch the waist, and add a pair of knee-high boots for a cozy fall classic.
A surplice-style plus size midi dress in a bold tribal print is perfect for summer yet easy to transition into fall. Simply layer on a cute cropped denim or leather jacket and add a pair of ankle boots to show off great legs. The faux-wrap bodice is universally flattering.
Plus Size Fit and Flare Dresses
Another trendy plus size dress style that's widely flattering is the fit and flare. The fitted bodice gently skims or hugs the bust while flaring into a loose skirt that flows over the tummy and hips. An excellent choice for those with an apple or pear shape, this fit and flare dress accentuates an hourglass figure and lends the look of curves to a rectangle shape.
Curvy boutique dresses with a fit and flare style are undeniably feminine with a swish of the skirt. This style runs the gamut from casual to the perfect dress for holiday parties with different fabric selections.
Plus Size Tunic Dresses
A loose-fitting tunic dress in a sweet lilac animal print with ruffled sleeves is checking many boxes on the must-have style sheet for 2021 plus size fashion dresses. Lilac is a key fashion trend for fall and winter this year and is projected to be big for the next two years. Digital Lavender is anticipated to be the color of the year for 2023. The romance with ruffles continues strong in 2021, and ruffled sleeves are ideal for stylish plus size dresses to incorporate the trend without becoming overpowering.
A tunic dress is one of the best plus size dresses for versatility. Paired with sneakers, a tunic dress is a cute outfit for a busy day on the go. Add leggings or even jeans for going to the park with the kids. Elevate the look with a belt and heels.
Plus Size Puff Sleeve Dresses
In 2018, the puff-sleeved dress was a new trend in plus size women's boutique clothing. By fall 2021, the trend looks like it's here to stay. We couldn't be more pleased to see this style stick around. This fun, feminine style detail ranges from demure little puffs to exaggerated, oversized sleeves that make a statement. The style draws the eye upward while making the waist look tiny in comparison.
The open neckline and sleeve detail on this plus size puff sleeve dress beautifully frame the face, balances out thicker hips, and keeps the attention where it belongs. This is a lovely style for boutique dresses for full-figured women.
Plus Size Tiered Dresses
The tiered dress is effortless and romantic, especially for a halter topped summer dress. In plus size boutique maxi or midi dress lengths, it's perfect for a boho style dress. The color block tiers of the skirt are well-balanced by the oversized shoulder knot ties of this pretty, plus size tiered dress, making it ideal for creating the impression of an hourglass shape without losing any of the free-flowing charm of the style.
The tiered dress is the ultimate in ease and versatility. The loose silhouette and flared skirt are easy to dress up or down with the change of a few accessories. Ranging from super casual styles to elegant evening wear, this is a must-have style for your online plus size dress boutique. You can meet several fashion trends at once with a tiered dress, like an electric color, ruffles, flutter sleeves, and a V-neckline.
Plus Size V-Neck Dresses
A V-neck has been a classic feature of boutique dresses for full-figured women for years and years. For 2021, it is a trend that’s placing the neck and collar bones front and center. Everyone wants to show off the flattering neckline that gracefully frames the face, allowing the collar bones to shine. The saturated lime green of this cotton V-neck plus size dress is on-trend, right along with the delicate eyelet and gently ruffled sleeves. The sleeves, together with the neckline, frame the face beautifully.
This sweet V-necked dress in an aqua retro floral print is a lovely choice for a trendy plus size dress for spring and summer, yet it easily transitions into fall. Just add black leggings and ankle boots with a cropped denim jacket for a fun, cool vibe.
Plus Size Swing Dresses
The A-line shape of the modern swing dress makes it an easy silhouette to wear and enjoy for any season or occasion. This summer swing dress with its trendy cutouts at the neckline and casual pockets is such a charmer. Cut narrow through the bodice and falling to a wide skirt with plenty of swing, the style is also perfect for fall. This plus size boutique swing dress can be dressed up or down and is sure to become a go-to for cooler weather.
