The New Dress Micro-Trend No One Knows About Yet

The dress trend I'm about to share with you is on the brink of fame. While still micro in stature, there is no doubt in my mind that, within just a few months, this is the dress trend you'll be seeing everywhere from summer through fall. The trend is actually more of a detail, and as previously mentioned, it's definitely still bubbling. It has to do with the shape of the bodice on the dress either coming to a sharp V-shape or being wider with seams that just graze the inside of the hip bone. After taking a look at the detail on the dresses and imagery below, you'll likely be reminded of a princess's dress or a ballerina's tutu. If that's what you see, you're not far off.

Scroll through the assortment of frocks here, and you'll find everything from casual day dresses to formal gowns that each feature this stunning new micro-trend. So far, only certain dresses that embody this trend have begun to pick up steam, but it's only a matter of time before the detail is officially everywhere, including your closet.
