Baby-doll dresses (aka dresses with empire waistlines) is going to be this summer’s hottest trend. Once again, popular celebs are setting the standards and we must follow!
Baby-doll dresses are characterized by an empire waist and a loose flowing a-line skirt that starts right under the breasts and goes to at least mid-thigh length. You can find baby-doll dresses in a variety of styles, colors, and fabrics. Some are suitable for classy evenings and some are better for a day at the beach. Either way, you are sure to be stylin’ !!
Vanessa Minnillo, Amanda Bynes, Petra Nemcova, and the always beautiful Sandra Bullock are just a few celebs that have been photographed wearing this very pretty style.
And of course, Paris Hilton is the one who started it all! You can steal her look here >>
