As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.
We all love musing over designer brands, but midluxury fashion is our true weakness. With the advent of social media, discovering unique independent clothing brands is easier than it's ever been. Almost weekly, we discover an online shop selling a statement dress that captures exactly how we feel. So just in case you are wondering which brands are in style in 2021, we made a list of some of our favourites.
Much of the beautiful clothes on our social feeds are designed by independent shops located here in the UK, with a few from the US, France, Spain, Sweden, and Denmark. Each of these small brands offer a unique take on the zeitgeist of the moment — including puff-sleeve dresses, oversize collars, patchwork pieces, sheer fits, and period drama-inspired silhouettes to fill every fashion fantasy you've been craving in lockdown. Ahead, keep reading for the 19 clothing brands keeping our Instagram stylish in 2021.
