I recently posted an article about the perfect Little Black Dress; otherwise known as the LBD. In my efforts to throw out the concept of simple, black and easy for my New Years ensemble, I spotted this trend of highs and lows, and shockingly I’m not referring to my emotions either. I’m talking about this hybrid of cocktail dress and elegant evening gown combined in one design.
I went on an internet rampage and found that I have apparently missed every issue of US Weekly, Vogue, InStyle and every other fashion magazine for the past twelve months. How have I overlooked this trend? This hit the runway in late 2010 and has lingered around red carpets ever since. What exactly am I referring to one might ask? The Mullet Dress. Yes, that’s right, I just used the word mullet while referring to fashion. It’s ok to take a moment and process that, I, myself am still adjusting to the name. A more elegant name I found was ‘Tail Gown’. I don’t know about you but ‘Tail Gown’ sounds much more appealing than ‘Mullet’. In hindsight how appropriate that it’s being called The Mullet Dress…business in the front and party in the back, right?
I must ask this question, since when are mullet’s attractive or even sexy for that matter? If Billy Ray couldn’t make it work, what makes the fashion world think they can? Then again, anything with a name of Versace or Dolce & Gabbana, who are we to question right! I’m not gonna lie though, I kind of get why this style is catching on, how many times have you been in the situation where you couldn’t decide if you wanted to go short or long to that big event? While i get that concept, I’m still not sure if I’m sold on this style trend.
Here are a few style icons I spotted during my search and wowed me (both good and bad) to say the least.
These ladies sure know how to convince you into a fashion trend! What do you think about the Mullet Dress? Is it Try or Bye? Would you wear this to your next event? Share your thoughts with us below.
