Dramatic, bold, and romantic. Three words that sum up this fall’s fashions…and this fall’s floor length frocks. A spin-off from summer’s floor-sweeping maxi skirts and dresses, floor length dresses are big for autumn. Go 70’s with a retro print or mod with colorblocking. Layer up a neutral color for a twist on preppy or go So Cal cool with a leg-baring sheer skirt. Bohemian, dramatic, mod, or trendy…there’s a floor length frock for every woman out there!
