This Helmut Lang dress might be the coolest dress I’ve ever owned. Yes, it’s simple, comfortable, but it’s all about the length – not a mini, not a maxi, but a midi length. Though it would look stellar with a beautiful pair of heels, I walk a lot so I threw on my “summer staple” leopard slip-ons. I also like wear it with a bright pair of running shoes, and really like pairing dresses with sneakers. The huge arm holes called for a skipping the bra and instead opting for a bralette/bikini top. I loved this dress so much that I wore it non-stop, all day, errrday! A side note: The midi length made me take tiny steps as opposed to my long stride, and made my hips move in a more feminine way – a plus?
