This season we are more than ever smitten with the maxi dress. Easy to style, versatile, super feminine—effortless maxi dresses are a summer staple. Though it’s been around for some seasons now and designers keep bringing it into their collections, the maxi dress still leads the way. I think it’s never been as “maxi” of a trend as it is now in summer 2014. What is amazing about the maxi dress is that it fits every woman from all age groups and matches all physiques and styles. The length and shapes make them so comfortable and easy to throw on and accessorize for almost any summer event or occasion.
This Fashionista is sporting a Victoria’s Secret knit maxi dress. This super soft knit dress maximizes festival-inspired style with a halter neckline and tier after tier of airy crochet. The curve-fitting and floor-grazing bottom half adds drama. Notice how this Fashionista chose not to accessorize, because the dress itself already makes such a statement. By not accessorizing, it allows the dress to be the main focus. Even though it cannot be seen due to the length of the maxi dress, the Fashionista is wearing flip flops. If easy summer-chic is what you’re going for, this maxi dress is the perfect solution.
When it comes to dresses, the maxi dress is the king, or rather, queen, of summer months. These long, loose dresses are perfect for any occasion and evoke the carefree months of the summer season.
How To: Maxi dresses come in many different materials, colors, prints and patterns. It is up to you to choose the maxi dress of your preference, so choose a style that you are absolutely in love with. Remember, if there is a lot going on with your maxi already, opt out of accessorizing. You want the maxi dress to be your main attraction!
