From our friends at LollieShopping.com:
If you haven’t guessed by now, I am a total dress diva. I love a good dress. It is the perfect way for me to express my femininity and show off my girlish curves. And dresses allow women to be so versatile. We can look posh and work chic, trendy and sexy or bold and punk. Any fashion statement can be accomplished via one good dress.
So I turned to one of my favorite retailers, Bluefly, for advice on what hot dress trends I need to keep in mind for Fall 2010. Sandy Sahn, Bluefly’s Dress buyer, was happy to help me out. ”Dresses have become such an important category. After the sportswear-obsessed ’70s and the power-look-driven ’80s and ’90s, women are embracing the no-stress dress,” says Sahn. “It’s the idea of putting on one garment, rather than matching a top to pants or a skirt. Throw a dress on and go!” I couldn’t agree with her more.
Sahn advises that we should be all about draping. “Think Grecian-inspired,” she states. Look for flowing fabrics with distinctive colors. She also says we should look for leather sheaths, bold embellished mini dresses and silhouettes with cut-out details. I’m swooning already. It may be 111 degrees here in Las Vegas, but I am daydreaming about Fall!
Here are Sahn’s favorite Fall dresses available at Bluefly now. Happy shopping!
“I’m obsessed with this Wyatt dress in every way— the strong shoulder detail and draping techniques…love, love, LOVE!”
“I would live in this every day with leggings — love the back zip detail!”
“In the wise words of Rachel Zoe, ‘I loves me a sequin!’”
