A dress trend I’ve only recently picked up on for this season is the long, sheer dress with short slip combination. Often the over layer is a maxi-length dress and a major color for this style dress is black (from what I’ve seen). The effect is stunning and all sorts of fun. Another big trend that I adore is the asymmetrical hemline with dresses shorter in the front and longer in the back. I bought a sheer maxi dress at Zara in Budapest a few months ago and wore it to a ball in Vienna. It worked perfectly and now goes perfectly for both formal and casual events with jackets, layered with shirts, or just by itself. The fun and whimsical lace pattern gives it personality and a bit of variety. Mine isn’t quite as shapely as some of these examples but is easy to wear and a versatile addition to my wardrobe.
