Fashion Week Roundup: The Short and Short of it / by laurel

**In honor of New York Spring 09 fashion week, which is taking placing in Bryant Park this week, I'm doing my dutiful job and previewing all the shows. I've rounded up a few micro-trends that have stood out to me so far, and this week I'll be posting them here and at Neu Black for your enjoyment.**

Chalk this one up to Looks Only Models Can Love. Further proof that the mid-90's are back, baby: The ubiquitous bandage dress shimmied down more than a few runways this week. The colors are all over the spectrum, and whether sleeveless, one-shouldered, or strapless, the unifying element these daring dresses share is an affinity for a certain BMI. In other words, dangerous curves need not apply, ladies.
