The Pretty Dress Trend That's Basically Internet-Stalking Me

Does anyone else keep a secret Pinterest board where you pin items you might want to buy? Unless it's a gotta-have-it-now item that I purchase on the spot, I check the board every couple days to compare all the pieces I'm mulling over, which helps me decide which ones I actually want to pull the trigger on.

Well, I recently scanned my board and realized that many of the items were versions of the same specific dress trend: puff-sleeve dresses with sweetheart necklines. As soon as I realized it, I started seeing the combination everywhere, each one tempting me more than the last. Should I try to escape the pull or give in? (Rhetorical question—of course I'm going to succumb to the bait.)

A slew of designers have offered unique takes on the trend, from Turkish designer Gül Hürgel's beautiful pink dress to Spanish designer Alejandra Alonso Rojas's lovely shirred number. Determined to find the best iterations on the internet, I unearthed dresses at every price point, including a $50 babydoll dress and a $76 mini that are begging to come home with you.
