Scarlett & Nicole Start A Trend: 60's Printed Dresses

01/31/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

We’ve hit that time of winter where those of us in chilly climates can only dream longingly of wearing summer clothes — and sixties-style printed dresses are at the top of our list. Bright colors — like Scarlett Johansson’s fuschia– and swirling patterns –like Nicole Richie’s baroque flowers — add major pop to simple shapes. Wear them now with tights or bust them out when the weather gets warmer with a great pair of wedges.

Get the Look:

Star Splurge: Get a real Pucci like Scarlett’s from, $1380, or try this beaded mini from Milly at, $435.

Investment Pieces: Get groovy with a T Bags dress from, $175, or get some flower power with this Rebecca Taylor trapeze from, $371.

Style Steal: Get the look for way less with this knit shift from, $79 or this bright babydoll from, $38.

Get it on eBay: You’ll usually find some affordable knockoffs mixed in with a few vintage originals here. Search for Pucci Dresses on eBay.

The only thing with those is you have to be careful that you don’t bend forward and when you sit down you have to keep your legs really close together. I saw a pic of my neighbour in one of those dresses years ago and she was sitting down and you could see her undies. It really should of stayed in the sixties cause this dress is great for perverts. I realize they are called baby doll but atleast bring them back wih maybe 3in added on.

The minute I saw this pic of Nicole I was hoping you would give more info on it. I love the dress. Thanks!

i like both dresses very much. Nicole Richie is really gross looking. she is way way too skinny. every picture you show she is going to lunch or coming from lunch. This girl (supposedly) eats more than anyone else i know. If she is having that much of a problem putting on weight eat some cheesecake for Goodness sake.
Scarlett on the otherhand is just perfect!

Pucci anything is cool. i only own a scarf at this point, but i love scarlett’s dress! nicole’s dress is horrible. she’s starting to look nasty again w/that hair color, etc.

I love these dressed. If only I were petite and slender, I would wear them, too! Both Nicole and Scarlett look wonderful!

I like Scarlett’s, with the regular collar, better than the mock turtleneck on Nicole, but I agree with the poster above who said these are a nice way to cover up without looking like you’re grandma (I’m paraphrasing).
