Bandage Dresses: A really cool French girl I interned with years ago perma-borrowed one of her mom's Herve Leger dresses from the '80s. Before the label relaunched in 2007, she wore it all the time. No one knew what it was. It was cool.

Of course, now those bandage dresses are everywhere. To turn it into something more than a predictable prom dress option, I'd toss on a tie-front blouse or sweatshirt-transforming it into a pencil skirt-and wear it during the day. With open toe booties, it'd be, well, cool.
