Trend Alert: Long Dresses

For those of you gals graced with long legs: get psyched! We all know dresses are hot for Spring and this includes long, flowy, effortless dresses. These particular dresses are slimming, comfortable and sexy. For those of you who are a little more petite, all you've got to do is throw on some wedge platforms and you are good to go! Here are a few of my new favorite long dresses for Spring:

Scoop Printed Tube Dress, $345, is 100% silk and has elasticized tube banding on the chest area. It is available in six different rockin' patterns.

This Nieves Lavi Silk Halter Dress, $350, is made from 100% silk as well and I think is simply gorgeous. It is a long navy stunner with a multicolor floral print and halter straps that tie behind the neck. It's flattering to all bust sizes because of the ruching!

For a few more long dresses,

This Rebecca Taylor Voile Halter Dress, $334, is a full-length dress made from two layers of cotton voile. This fitted, empire waist dress ties at the back of the neck and has fabric flower appliqués at the neckline. I love the color of the dress atop a tan and I think this cut is quite flattering to all shapes.

Vivienne Tam Silk Jersey Halter Dress, $425, is a 100% silk, modern version of a kimono. This bright colored halter dress also ties at the neck, has a wrap around belt as well as built in bust pads for lift and bra necessary!

Forever 21 Retro Halter Dress is $32.80 and though it's a bit retro, picture this with a great brown woven belt and sexy wedges. This halter dress features ruched detailing at the bust, a pointed waist line and satin retro print skirt.

I love the Nieves dress, but I'm only 5'2" and I think that long, flowy day dresses like these overwhelm my frame, so I'll be sticking to shorter lengths... it's a great option for taller girls, though!

MBM I love these dresses, but not sure if I'll get into this trend. I've already had 2 babies & these beautiful dresses remind me of maternity clothes...I can barely wear a tunic without wondering if eople will think I'm pregnant. unless you've had a baby, you won't get what I mean.

JessNess is right. I think these type dresses are for tall women.

I like the Nieves dress. This is one of the few times Im glad Im tall because shorter gals really shouldnt wear dresses this long . The longest their dresses should go is knee lenght

I like the Rebecca Taylor and Forever 21 dresses, but I think long dresses make me look bigger than I already am! I don't think I will be participating in this trend.

The Rebecca Taylor is fine, but the others- yeeuck! Not even as nice as Stacy London's "romaki dress.". Most of these dresses are just too-drink wine from a jug/and screw each other's husbands/70s.

I think the brown empire waist is my favorite. The neckline, and the cut of the skirt looks very flowing, just enough flair and not too much fabric. Just right, very right.

These are FABulous, the umpire waist is very flattering for not so perfect figures. They look so comfy and unbinding. Really, really great.
