On The Street…. Blue Dress, LES, New York

This girl was not very tall and yet the dress did not overpower her. I think the real key is the just below the calf length and the the fact the front is slightly shorter than the back

    Sarto, I admire your ability to find beauty in what to my eye is a wonderfully unflattering smock…or moo moo…or tent.
    Do you really want to promote the wearing of flip flops? Please, ladies, don’t let Sarto convince you that this is an attractive look.
    The color color is nice, but think of how lovely this woman could look if she were well dressed.

    I hadn’t noticed this trend of the varying hem lengths until viewing your site, Sartorialist. I seem to remember you featuring a similar hem on a women wearing a black gauze dress with leggins.

    It shouldn’t work, but
    somehow it does.

    I like the asymmetrical hemline especially on the petite ladies. She looks comfortable and very beautiful.

    While I think that in this case the dress is [i]probably[/i] meant to be a bit longer in the back, it cannot be always be presumed that it’s by design. All the similarly-styled halter dresses I’ve made/owned have sagged in the back and need to be tugged back into place every few blocks.

    That said, I DO like the longer back usually.
