Today Show: Full Length Gowns Trendy For Spring
With spring officially starting tomorrow it is time for everyone to get ready for some springtime fun in the sun. The Today Show turned to Marie Claire Senior Fashion Editor Zanna Roberts Rassi to talk about the latest fashion trends for this spring.
Rassi said this spring is going to be all about the return of the full length gown. She said they are flattering on all body types and they don’t have to be stuffy and expensive like many people think. She said the following dresses are modern, fresh and inexpensive.
Cocktail Party Gown – Macy’s Xscape
The Macy’s Xscape gown is the perfect dress for a cocktail party. Rassi said you don’t have to wear short dresses to a cocktail party. She said this halter-neck dress is perfect for any woman as long as they don’t have shoulders that are too wide. She also suggested going with a minimal amount of jewelry when wearing the long gowns she talked about during the segment. Less is more according to Rassi.
Evening Dinner Gown – Alex Evenings, Nordstrom
This Alex Evenings dress is perfect for looking chic and sophisticated. The all black dress has long sleeves, which are in this season, and a long slit down the side of the dress shows off a lot of leg.
Garden Party Gown – Lauren By Ralph Lauren
The Lauren gown is the perfect dress for the spring garden party. Rassi said the bright yellow color really grabs the attention of the people around you. She said the trick with this type of dress is to go with something bright and colorful while staying away from gold tones and dull colors
Summer Wedding Gown – BCBG Gown
This backless dress from BCBG is the perfect dress for a spring wedding. Rassi did caution viewers to check out their backs when they wear the dress. She said if you want to wear a backless dress, give your back an evaluation and be honest with yourself about how the dress looks.
Black Tie Event Gown – Adrianna Papell Gown
For a black tie event, this Adrianna Papell gown is perfect even though it isn’t all balck. Rassi said you don’t have to wear black to a black tie event saying it is appropriate to wear some metallic colored dresses as well.
