• Print dresses look fresh and new this season. After dressing mostly in separates for so long, I’m liking dresses for a complete, pulled-together look. It feels refreshingly easy to put on a dress and not have to be concerned with putting together an entire outfit. These print dresses don’t need extra belts and, often, not much jewelry to look quite polished. Most of these styles are actually secured faux wraps so you don’t need to pin them to prevent gaping open at the neckline. The soft jersey fabrics are comfortable, too. It’s little wonder they’ve become a classic. Many of them are actually machine washable and they’re well-priced.

    Length can be an issue with dresses, so one needs to pay attention to measurements. We don’t know the model’s height or the size she’s wearing, but the description does give the length of a size 8 dress. You can measure the back length of one of the dresses in your closet to estimate what might work for you. Of course, length is a personal preference. One can always take up a hem, but there’s not much to do with a dress that is too short. (I find that at 5’4″, anything less than about 36” is too short for me.) The length of sleeves for some arm coverage is also good on these dresses.
