Long Dresses Are The Hottest Trend For Summer!

Yeah, it’s apparent that Long Dresses are definitely the hottest trend for summer. Literally, everyone is wearing them! Celebrities, fashionistas, and stay at home moms are all jumping on board with this easy to wear trend.

L to R: Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian, Kristen Bell, Jessica Simpson, and Kate Hudson.

Whether you are getting ready for an evening out or just going to the beach, grab a long dress and you’ll be ready to go! Solid colors seem to be the most popular, but we are seeing some floral prints and African-tribal prints as well.

Long dresses are even popular for maternity wearing moms-to-be like Angelina Jolie, Ashlee Simpson, and Tori Spelling. More on this later…

    Cute dresses although I’m about 5’2” and am afraid that the longer length will overwhelm my petite frame.

    I do not prefer the look of Maxi dresses. They were all over Paris last month, sported with flat gladiators (but those I do like). Here’s why I won’t indulge:

    I love the look of the Maxi dresses but they seem to only work if you are taller – I am 5’3, average build and the dresses overwhelm me.
