Trend Alert: Zip It To Me

The zipper. The coolest of closures can be found on everything lately - toughing up dresses and sandals. The sleek, slim sporty zipper has an 80's appeal that is maybe not as harsh as the stud. I saw this dress in a boutique recently and had to resist trying it on, knowing what happens when something so cute, with a bit of attitude, fits like a glove. Here are some picks that deliver this trend in a subtle way.

Tracy Reese Zipper Jumper Dress, $398.


A few more,

Kenneth Cole Reaction terracotta wool-cashmere blend zipper dress coat, on sale for $153.59 (originally $375).


Chip & Pepper Mackenzie Zipper Jean, $209.


Marc by Marc Jacobs Zipper Sandal, $470.

Im not feeling this trend. These other items are subtle with the addition of the zipper, but I think the dress is totally ruined.

personally, the zippers remind me of prada when they are used right but I agree on the chip & peppers they are a little bit juniors.

The shoes and coat are fabulous. But there is such a thing as too many zippers, and that's my fear with this trend.

On the right pieces this trend looks funky and fun. But I can see this going mainstream and zippers showing up on all sorts of tacky things in the juniors dept. of your local department store :(

The zippers seem too 80s or something to me.

I like the coat (I might purchase!) and the shoes, but the pants have got to go! The dress is cute, but I think I would like it without the zipper. I think the pattern is adorable, but I think the zipper throws it off.
