Trend Worth Trying: Mocha Dresses

09/06/2006 at 10:00 AM ET

Sometimes, gorgeous and stylish minds think alike. Eva Mendes, Beyonce and Halle Berry have all stepped out recently in cafe au lait colored jersey dresses that cling to their curves and set off their skin tones beautifully. The best part is that this color is universally flattering, setting off any skin tone from super-pale to super-dark. So not only do they get to look gorgeous, but they get a comfy dress in the process. You can even take this look into fall by layering a t-shirt underneath or adding a cardigan on top.

Want the look too?

For a Splurge, try T-bags at Active Endeavors, $150

For a Steal, try Old Navy, $30.

I think they’re very cute and look so comfy! But I think that the idea of putting a t-shirt under it would hideous and would really take away from the sexy breezy look that I think it’s trying to convey.

Is it just me or does Halle look preggers?

If halle looks preggers in jersey… good luck the rest of us in a jersey dress :0) I think the style is really cute but if you have any sort of wobbly bits they will stand right out! But the style is cute and the color is fabulous!
