Now that we have finally seen a streak of sunny spring days, one would think that choosing an outfit for class, a weekend getaway or a night out with friends would be a cinch. However, the winds have picked up in the North and when walking past the leaf blower man or getting caught in the gusts from a Cruiser passing by, that cute little sundress will no longer be your friend. What is a girl to do to look feminine and flirty without having technical difficulties with her favorite flowy mini dress or skirt? The solution is simple: maxi-mize.
The maxi dress is one of the hottest spring/summer trends for this year, and has been widely displayed down the runways and in storefront windows all over the country. This Fashionista nails the cool and casual look of a May afternoon with her brightly patterned ankle-length dress. Maxis with loud prints steal the spotlight of the outfit, so avoid over-accessorizing. Her beige straw sunhat and camel sky-high wedges are perfect additions that complement the dress without cluttering the look.
Splendid has a fabulous line of maxi dresses and skirts that are so soft and cozy, you’ll never want to wear anything else. Most of the skirts come in solid colors, allowing you to get creative with a fun scarf, denim jacket or a statement necklace. The best part about many of their long skirts is the fold-over at the top. By unfolding the flap, the skirt becomes even longer and your simple maxi skirt is transformed into a tube maxi dress. This versatility just adds to the fabulousness of the maxi and why it is one of this season’s favorite items.
