Given how the last year has turned out, many expectant graduands are looking forward to getting glammed up in the upcoming debs season. Here in Ireland, this means final year female students looking for the perfect debutante (debs) party dress.

Not sure what to buy for your daughter? Wondering whether you should get a store-bought or custom-made dress? How about the trending styles for 2021? Read on to get updated on the top styles – and tips – for picking a hot, classy, and unique debs dress.

Tiered Dresses

When it comes on to luxurious dressing and extravagant flair, tiered ball dresses are among the top choices. This style has been trending for years, and 2021 seems to be no different. Featuring multi-layered skirts and often with ruffles, they are available in various colors and finishes.

The tiered dress is for the girl who wants to look like a princess and exude sophistication at the same time. You can add further glam to the look by getting one that has some shimmer.

Maxi Dresses

The versatile maxi dress is another style that is popular every year, and not just for debutante balls. They are among the most popular party dresses around, and for good reason. A well-fitting maxi dress in a nice color that suits you will help to flatter your figure and make you look taller.

As such, there are great for petite figures. But there are suitable styles for taller girls as well. What’s more, they come in a wide range of designs and there are many that fall in the category of affordable that still look stunning.

Flirty Corset Gowns

This is one debutante ball dress style that is a bit edgier than most of the entries on this list, but still classy and elegant. Although not a recent concept, this type of ball gown has been trending recently mainly because of the American rapper Megan Thee Stallion. It is a very “dressy” piece of evening attire with vintage roots and fit for a variety of events. It is available in numerous styles, cuts, and colors.

However, you have to ensure the one you get has a comfortable bodice, since the debutante will be wearing this all night. If you are thinking about a corset gown but worried about the fit, you may want to consider getting a custom-made dress in this style.

Cowl Necks

The cowl neck is a ‘90s style that pops up every so often, and it seems to be in for 2021. One reason why this is such a trendy dress style is because it carries a bit more flair and elegance than the typical V-neck formal dress.

In addition, the cowl neck can be worn by many different body types, including plus-size young women. Some of the popular looks appearing in cowl-necked debs dresses include metallic shimmer and soft, feminine colors.

Iridescent Sequins

It is no coincidence that shimmery styles have been mentioned a few times in this post. From simple debutante ball gowns to multi-tiered and ruffled dresses, retailers seem to be turning up the glitz. Shimmery sequins in iridescent colors are definitely en vogue this season for the debutante who wants to truly shine. They are available in a variety of colors and designs, so there is plenty to choose from if you are looking for a bit of glamor.
