It looks like in our poor economic climate, shoppers who can only afford a few items are trying to make them count. And what better way than with a dress?
“The dress is still strong for us, and by the look of the resort markets, it will remain one of the best categories. It’s interesting when a trend morphs into a way of life,” Bergdorft Goodman senior vice president Linda Fargo told WWD. “There are far fewer decisions to make, when it’s time to decide what to wear every day … not only does ‘the dress’ simplify our lives, it ultimately says ‘feminine,’ and is able to express many of our fashion personalities, from soft and romantic, to fierce and sexy, to professional, to dramatic and elegant.”
