The Mullet Dress

Just a few weeks ago Nicole Richie attended the the 2012 FIFI awards and in a gorgeous, black, baby doll, mullet dress that in my opinion took this trend to another level.

The mullet dress, much like the hairstyle, is short at the front and long at the back, or like “they” say, “business at the front, party at the back.” Just like the hairstyle, this dress style has always gotten a lot of mixed reviews. Most people either love it or hate it. Like most trends, the mullet dress is most certainly not for every one. Nicole Richie though, is very petite so along with her hairstyle and accessories she nailed this look. Another aspect of her dress that I like are the sleeves. I’m not a fan of long sleeve dresses but I think this is what makes this particular mullet dress memorable (try to picture the dress without the sleeves.)

Quite a number of celebrities have worn this trend over the years with a number of variations to a range of events. Check out these photos to see which adaptation of this style you like the best.

Selena Gomez

Miley Cyrus

Christina Aguilera

Granted, some of these dresses are very costume-ish and may not be very practical for your everyday gals like you and me. However, mullet dresses are available in simple variations and did I mention that there are also mullet skirts?

So what do you think of this trend? Would you wear it? As always, feel free to send us photographs of how you wore this or any trend to trufashionfink@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to feature you on our blog.
