Trend We Love: Jersey Dresses

08/16/2006 at 12:49 PM ET

Some fall trends are making women a little nervous (ankle boots, anyone?), but there is one that has me totally thrilled–jersey dresses! From super-slinky to babydoll, I love them all. Besides making me feel like I am wearing ultra-comfy pajamas to work, they are amazingly versatile, going from weekend errand running with flip-flops (like chic Carmen Electra) to big-night out paired with heels. For extra comfort and style points, try layering leggings underneath short tunic styles like Liv Tyler (at left). I also own Liv’s dress from Velvet and live in it on the weekends. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Here’s a few more that I really love:

For a Real Splurge, try the Marc by Marc Jacobs Cynthia Dress , $358

For a Splurge, try the Scoop Minidress from Anthropologie (at left), $158

For a Good Deal, try the

, $25

Am I the only one that thinks these dresses are ugly? I can’t imagine they are very flattering on most people.

I already have one! I plan to wear it with leggings and a long chain

I have looked at it and looked at it to try and see the good in this outfit and I just do not like it. She looks dumpy. It is just not flattering. Sorry, I tried.
