Though gym short cocktail dresses may be all the rage…somewhere, New York Fashion Week has a longing for length. So eschew your bottoms next spring in favor of a long top – a stylish man’s shirtdress – trending fresh from the New York runway. Here are the standouts.

Siki Im

Hospital frocks went haute-concept at Siki Im, who took blouses from the institution, prescribed a drop length to the knee, and discharged them to the street. We’re not sure why pajamas-as-daywear is still trying to happen, so keep it clean and chic in a solid – we vote white.


A savior to the waistline averse, Yohji Yamamoto began conceiving blousy ensembles for boys before most designers quit the playground – his latest for Y-3 is reliably sporty.

Duckie Brown

We never knew a halter-top sweatshirt qualified as a must-have until Duckie Brown debuted them the other day amid a strong collection of monastic buttondowns and trendy shorts-over-pants. Another New York trend of note: a luxurious desert palette.

Tim Coppens

This designer launched in 2011, so forgive our tardiness because we are now huge fans – linear modern shapes defy expectations by making these sacs feel architectural. In sum: want, need, now.

Billy Reid

Billy Reid designs for the every man.  Tunics and long shirts graze below the crotch and permit the less-daring to keep it untucked and to experiment with length: top it with a short jacket.
