Trend Alert: Bubble Trouble

Just when I thought someone magically popped the fashion bubble, we are back in bubble trouble. Designers and celebrities alike can't get enough of bubble hems. To be truthful, this is a look only a slim gal should attempt and heels lessen any negative bubbling of the body. Emma Roberts wore a dark and tailored Sass & Bide bubble dress, The Hills' Lo donned a colorful Ina Soltani bub, and Elizabeth Bank's Moschino bubbler was gray and subdued. I prefer the bubbles that have a tailored approach, at least it's a reinvention of the trend. Does anyone else wish this '80s trend would bubble over already?

I love bubble dresses. When I wear them, I look like I'm wearing a bustle. I LOVE it.

I love bubble hems, I think they give shape and volume to an otherwise plain garment.

I think Emma looks cute in that picture. She is also a teenager. I'm a size 4 or so, and I think that bubble hems would make me look like a parade float.

I love them, but only on short skirts. It's such a fun, unexpected hemline!

While eating at Toast on 3rd St. anybody who does not live here has no idea- not only did I see 100 Laurens I also saw a girl that looked like Lauren waiting outside for a table with a justin bobby head sweatshirt tossed over her head -in Los Angeles she has a very deep dictation of "LA Fashion" it's true with fact I also saw Perez Hilton at a restaurant around the street a bizarre day in all

I personally like bubble hems a lot...and I agree, Fab, that you need to be thin to pull them off in a flattering way.

I hate bubble hems. They make it look like people accidentally tucked their hem into their underwear. It's especially infuriating when I see a dress that looks perfectly nice on the top and then when my eyes get down to the hem... oy. I don't think slim girls can pull it off either. Even girls who are stick-thin look bunchy and bloated in these things.

Yes, please let the bubble hem die a slow & painful death.

I have a black super wide pleated (lined) bubble skirt that has a very classic look. A couple years ago, an elegant older woman stopped me in a store to tell me that my skirt was "quite fetching." The bubble hem does not have to look trendy or 80s. On a side note: I dislike nearly every bubble hem shown above.
