More Retro-Chic: The A-Line Dress Returns

Think back to Ginger and Mary Ann.

Jeanie.

This list goes on. (And on.)

How can you not remember the absolutely hot 60s-style A-line shift dress?

It’s a little vintage, ever so slightly mod, but classically gorgeous – and it’s back!

Another reason I love this style: ANYONE can wear it! Whether you are 25 or 55, it is an appropriate choice, and the A-line silhouette is very forgiving to our “curves”, skimming over the stomach and hips.

Totally cute – I’m down with this trend. (And perhaps this dress.)

    This trend, coupled with the fact that I keep seeing gingham EVERYWHERE, means we can all break out our inner Mary Ann!!! :D

    This is so cute. It kind of reminds me of an audrey Hepburn dress too.
