One of my favorite trends of 2020: Statement, voluminous baby doll dresses, a dreamy combination of chic and effortless. Slipping on a baby doll dress instantly gives you a relaxed vibe, thanks to the outfit's voluminous silhouette, puffed sleeves, and/or tiered skirts. With this spring/summer trend, ease is key, and honestly—that's music to my ears. Designers like Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha and Cecilie Banhsen have been sending these kind of dresses, a mix of femininity and billowing silhouettes, down the runway season after season. Now, editors and influencers galore are hitting the sidewalks of the city to put their own twist on this spring trend. Here's how to make it work for you.
Cecilie Bahnsen's pieces are beloved for their voluminous silhouettes, and this oversized buttercup yellow Effie dress exudes a feminine, chic and effortless feel. This dress is made from linen-blend cloqué with puffed sleeves and a tiered skirt. Opt for a whimsical pair of Teva sandals and JW PEI brown croc shoulder bag.
