Drop Red Gorgeous

Over the past two weeks, I've sat through a couple of fashion shows that saw top brands unveiling their Fall/Winter collections. A vintage style that has caught my eye as it stages a strong resurgence is the drop-waist dress, first popularized in the 1920s when glamour girls strutted around wearing this style in soft silk fabrics with long pearl necklaces and headdresses and and high heels. It reappeared in the 1960s much, much shorter, looking more sporty chic and great for wearing during the daytime! It made another comeback in the 1980s when no less than Princess Diana made it fashionable to wear the style in midi-length just covering the calves.

This one from MOSSIMO is all business with a just above-the-knee length, perfect for looking smart and in control for those all-important, high-powered meetings. You'll look like a winner and all set to close the deal with the striking deep red color, and trendy exposed front pocket and back zippers.

Best of all, as with all dresses in this style, it is flattering on most figures, gives the appearance of a longer torso, which makes you look taller than you are! Now, that's a winner in any book, don't you think so?
