The summer Dolce and Gabbana 2021 dress collections showcase Sicilian inspired patchwork, leopard print, florals and lots more besides. As is typical, dresses can be found in various lengths. Here I am taking the opportunity to show you some of my favourite dresses, available to buy right now, from the summer 2021 Dolce and Gabbana dress collections. My top tip is to shop around the main stockists because some have exclusives.
The Tulle Leopard Print Longuette Dress
You can get this Runway leopard print longuette dress directly from Dolce and Gabbana’s website. It combines a few of my favourite Dolce and Gabbana dress elements: leopard print, a midi length and cotton tulle. The dress isn’t lined so you’ll have to work out how best to wear it. In my opinion an unlined or transparent dress can give a few different looks depending on what you want to wear underneath it. As is common with Dolce and Gabbana dresses, it has a built in bustier and boning. Really, very lovely indeed.
Black Ruched Cotton-Blend Tulle Midi Dress
This Dolce and Gabbana ruched cotton-blend tulle midi dress is probably my current favourite. Yes, another tulle dress! But why not? In fact, I like this dress so much, it’s already been featured on A Good Frock before. This Dolce and Gabbana black tulle dress is already sold out on some sites but is still available at Matches Fashion. This midi dress has a V-neck and is heavily ruched throughout. While the outer layer is a cotton blend, the lining is a stretch silk. A very feminine dress for evenings.
Patchwork Cotton Midi Dress
It’s hard not to review this Dolce and Gabbana dress 2021 summer collection without mentioning patchwork. So here is one pick out of the many Sicilian patchwork dresses in the collection. What I want most from a summer dress is something that is easy to wear. This dress fits the bill completely. The outer patchwork fabric is 100% cotton and so is the lining. It’s fitted bodice and full skirt is a design many women can wear. Some sizes are still available at Harrods, otherwise shop around other stockists.
Printed Silk Kaftan Mini Dress
Silk features heavily in Dolce and Gabbana dress collections. Dolce and Gabbana have also made kaftan style dresses a ‘thing’ whether long or short.
This silk kaftan Sicilian print mini dress, is utterly charming and can be cinched in at the waist if you want more shaping. There’s also the option to team it with leggings or capri pants. It’s described as slightly sheer, so you’ll need to think about what you are going to wear underneath it. Perfect for holidays. Catch it at Net-a-Porter.
Short Patchwork Crepe de Chine and Charmeuse Dress
There are quite a few patchwork mini dresses in the Dolce and Gabbana 2021 dress collections. I have picked out this patchwork crepe de chine and charmeuse mini dress which combines four different prints, including two florals. I think the cut and shaping is very flattering. Partially lined, it captures some of the essence of Sicily and Dolce and Gabbana have even managed to include a touch of animal print (the straps). With plenty of ruching, a nipped in waist and a skirt that flares out over the hips, this style of dress will suit many figures. Really lovely.
