Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

At this week's spring 2012 shows, the one thing that was pretty hard to miss—besides Perry Ellis' shirtless models or the lipstick (and boobs) at Betsey Johnson—was the omnipresent mullet dress. That's right, it looks like spring is going to be filled with hemlines that are significantly shorter in the front than they are in the back, since everyone from Jason Wu to Nicholas K to Ohne Titel put some version of it down the runway. Need proof? Have a look at 12 examples in our gallery after the jump.
