Ornate Hemlines: Be Charmed by Trimming

When dress shopping, we used to concentrate on the flatter factor of the neckline, and the question of straps or no straps was invariably considered. Then there was the great empire-versus-natural-waist debate of 2007. In short: our dresses' skirts were feeling seriously neglected. Not anymore because this spring adores the ornate hemline. Rory Beca is doing it with a sweet little ruffle, and Jovovich-Hawk mingles eyelet, paisley, and scallops to brilliant effect. But that's just the beginning. Designers across the fashion spectrum have been charmed by elegant trimming, and it's changing the way we look at the dress. See for yourself, right here, at shopbop.
