Trend Worth Trying: Missoni-Style Dresses

11/20/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Recently, it seems like all of young Hollywood is dressing in wave-patterned knit dresses, the Missoni signature. Lindsay Lohan wore hers while out and about in L.A., Nicole Richie wore hers to a Playstation launch, and Paris Hilton feted Domino magazine in her belted dress. Accessories are best kept to a minimum to show off the sexy shapes and bold patterns, and these styles would look great layered over turtlenecks or under cardigans when temperatures drop. Simple, easy, and chic: what more do you need in a dress?

To get the look for real, try this vibrant long-sleeve Missoni dress at, $2300 or this purple wrap number at,$1460.

To get the look for less (but keep the Missoni name), try these dresses from their lower-priced line M Missoni: this adorable turtleneck style from, $695, or this pale sheath from, $545

To get the look at a steal, try this Maggie London dress at, $148 or this mini at, $48.

I don’t know about you!? But, I am really tired of seeing Lindsay (who is not even pretty and who tries way too hard to be cool!!!) Nicole (who looks like a pawsum that just woke up all time…..dazed, afraid, and confused!!) and Paris (well, Paris only wishes she was a discovered model!)
People Magazine…….please stop sending out your photographers to get pics of these annoying 20 somethings!!!
I don’t care what they wear!!!! What are they doing to help the world! People Magazine should create a “do-gooder” contest for these oblivious young “stars” so, their image in REALITY is…………”GOOD!”

$2300 for that?? I wouldn’t spend $50 on it!

Lindsay looks sloppy, as usual.

The dress looks terrible on Lindsay and doesn’t look too good on Nicole. Paris is the only one who can pull it off. But I love Paris and Nicole!

Lindsay looks trashy, but the other two look lovely in that dress. I hope retail shops like H&M will offer a cheaper version of the dress so that I can buy my own!

I really like these dresses. I think all three girls look cute.

I guess these dresses are cute, except for the fact it is 30º where I live, I might wear them! I don’t care for any of those girls they show wearing those dresses. I definitely wouldn’t put a Missoni dress on just because THEY did.

Lindsay looks disgusting and old as always- please, someone tell me why this talent-less unattractive girl is famous?
Nicole looks adorable- she has the chicest style.
Paris- well, is Paris.

paris looks more hideous than normal in this pic. i agree w/the comment that lindsay looks sloppy, but nicole looks great!

Well I am not a “Fan” of any of these three girls and to be honest the patterns on these dresses make me think I’ve got a really bad hangover..
