I keep seeing this trend around, it has crept into all my fave shops again and I really don't know how to feel about it. The "mullet cut" reminds me of a garment that has been caught in a door, or jammed in runaway taxi...leaving the embarrassed wearer to cover her decency with the nearest thing to hand.
Deb's season is upon us and I have spotted this trend on some frocks about town. I feel it poignant to post this blog to make looming debutante's aware of me feelings on this style.
Top designers have all had a go at the "dipped hem" or "mullet hem" dress of late.
Left to Right: Emillo Pucci, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Richie have all incorporated the "Gothic" trend into their dress designs for Winter 2012.
The height of the cut to the front of the dresses and the length added at the back of these dresses, ensures that the gowns are true to the "mullet" trend, while maintaining a flattering silhouette.
These dresses certainly can not be confused with a dress that has been caught in a door!!!
Left to Right: Beyonce shines in this peplum dipped hem dress, Jessica Alba looks demure in this rich chocolate brown number and Fergie from the black eyed peas brings a sexy edge to the trend, her loosely tousled hair compliments the animal print to perfection.
This dress is too long at the front and it drags along the pavement at the back, demonstrating ill thought on the designers part or perhaps ill styling on Selena's part, kind of looks like the dress fail to fit.
This dress should have been longer at the back and should have sat higher to Kourtney's decolletage (see how the petite Nicole Richie wore this trend above).
