We’ve noticed a trend on the red carpet and here’s the long and short of it…
The mullet dress is hot news. It’s a dramatic red carpet style that’s been spotted on countless celebrities lately including Cheryl Cole,Jessica Alba, January Jones, Beyonce and Victoria Beckham.
What is a mullet dress?
The mullet dress is short at the front and longer at the back. Some dresses have a tighter style mini skirt with and almost bustle-like overlay, others are more subtle, while ruffled mullet dresses seem to be particularly popular at the moment. Plus, you’ll see even more of it next season.
We’ve made sure to include at least one of these dresses in our Autumn collection because we know our customers love to steal the style of their fave celebs. The style pictured above is by Pearce II Fionda and is cut to fit and flatter to perfection.
How to wear the mullet dress…
These dresses look best with heels. If yours is super short at the front then you’ll want to make the most of those pins – slather on some glistening body lotion. There are plenty of styles which hit your knee at the front if you prefer longer styles.
You could also try a sub-trend: mullet tops are cropped at the front and longer at the back. It’s a great look for festivals teamed with denim shorts and layered necklaces.
We don’t recommend you throw caution to the wind and get a mullet hair cut though. The trend hasn’t stretched that far just yet. In the past the term ‘mullet’ hasn’t really been associated with being stylish, however, the fashion industry has affectionately adopted the term to describe this new trend so who knows… maybe mullet hairstyles will make a comeback after all.
