The Cheat Sheet To Looking Cute This Holiday: Frou-Frou Dresses

Like really cute.

Okay, so Ariana Grande just broke the Internet with her major ode to 2000s romcoms and chick flicks for her Thank U, Next video. Cute. But for something truly cute, may we suggest you dial it back to the kind of frou-frou flashback from the pink satin prom dress that Drew Barrymore’s Josie Geller wore in Never Been Kissed (1999)?

The frilly and ruffled frou-frou aesthetic is a big trend that’s building up from Fall/Winter ’18 and over to Spring/Summer ’19. Cue Marc Jacobs’ oversized confections at the recent New York Fashion Week or Hedi Slimane‘s party-worthy shiny sequinned and foil minis at Celine.

Here, we sort out some of the prettiest numbers to cop — just in time for the festive whirl.
