The Maxi dress. Long and billowy, these floor-skimming dresses are the embodiment of the current silhouette trend of fitted around the bust and then loose around the stomach. Romantic and charming, flattering...especially on taller women.
They look great during the day, or for dressier occasions.
Definitely pair this look with wedge heels, thong sandals, and embellished flip flops.
Shabby Apple has a new dress that follows this trend using neutral colors... Cleopatra, Shabby Apple, $59. This is a great choice because you don't need an undershirt.
All the other maxi dresses I have seen require an undershirt. But don't let that stop you!
The other great way to wear this look is to select a bold, colorful print. This incorporates two more of the season's trends...bold prints and safari influence.
I love this print (the Spring Blossom Summer Dress, $138) from C& C California: Right now they are offering Free Shipping on all C&C
I also like the safari vibe coming from this one by Victoria's Secret, $55.
This orange and pink print from Delia's is my personal favorite...It's the Jaclyn Dress, $50. Delia's also has a great shipping deal going on:
Free shipping on orders $25 or
I also want to add that this style is simple to sew...I made one in college that I loved. So you may want to try a little sewing adventure.
I'm dying to know: how do you feel about the long and lovely Maxi?
