I like to keep up with the latest women’s clothing trends just for fun.  I don’t necessarily run out and buy clothes that match the trends, but it’s interesting to see what other people are shopping for while I sit at my computer in my pajamas.  ;-)  So let’s see what is IN right now in the dress category…

Color Blocking

I’d say it could be tastefully done, but I wouldn’t wear that dress on the left…. it’s a little too contrasting neon and black for me.  The one on the right is cute, though!

Not a huge fan of that dress, but if Kristen Stewart wears it…!  ;-)

Peplum Dress

The peplum features a ruffle around the high waist.  This is definitely one of those shape-specific styles… I couldn’t wear it with my hips!  But hey, if you have no rear end and you want one this might be for you.  :)  I do love the vintage look – it reminds me of Audrey Hepburn for some reason and that is a good thing!

Babydoll Dress

I would wear the one on the far left, but I’m pretty sure the model in the middle went a bit far with her dress… is that all one piece?  *shudder*  Then there’s the dress on the far right worn by Jennifer Lopez.  I’m sorry, but that looks like a fancy negligee, and not very comfortable.



Apparently fish scales are in.

Amazingly, I’m speechless.  Maybe because my mermaid obsession ended after I turned 12?


Apparently this is a big one… sorry, I’m not really a fan.  Though I think it could be done in a way I would wear… something like this:

This style could be tasteful and sophisticated if done right but when the dresses start looking like lingerie I think it’s pushing it.  Goodness, the lovely nightwear from Figleaves looks more comfortable, fashionable, and tasteful than some of these dresses!

Patchwork Look

Aha!  Finally a trend I LOVE!  Possibly because it’s got that crafty handmade look to it.  :)  I actually made myself a patchwork type skirt not too long ago!  See, I’m lookin’ hip already…

So tell me, which trend do you like the most?
