Long dresses have been neglected too long. Yes a floor length gown says fancy but that doesn’t always have to be the truth. If you wear a long dress in casual fabric with a similar tone in your accessories you are set to rock the lengthy frock out to a nice lunch, dinner or bar.
Look at Agyness Deyn in her fun black dress. The fabric is a casual jersey as well as the button details down the center front of her dress. To make this look even more informal have the hem of the dress end at about the ankles or even calves.
