Stripes will forever be in style. Mix it with the maxi dress and you’ve got the ultimate look for summer 2013. I recently wrote about the maxi skirt, but I couldn’t pass up this maxi dress. It just goes to show how popular the maxi trend really is. This Fashionista looks absolutely adorable in her blue and white striped maxi dress. It’s super classy yet casual enough for a day at the beach or a walk around town. That’s what makes it the perfect piece for summer.
This Fashionista wears her striped maxi dress well as it drapes to the ground. This may leave you wondering with what shoes to pair with it, but don’t worry because just about any trendy pair of sandals will do. These laced-front leather sandals are a personal favorite and perfect example. I especially enjoy the colors and the fact that they are made to be worn with a maxi. What I also like about this Fashionista’s dress is the detail it has and the halter neckline. Bloomingdale’s has a tie neck stripe maxi very similar to this Fashionista’s dress.
Maxi dresses come in several varieties these days. For example this NASTY GAL flash stripe maxi dress has a scoop neckline, features a side slit and falls at the ankle rather than the floor. So you definitely have options when it comes to finding the right dress for you. One of my favorites would have to be PacSun’s Rip Curl Believer Maxi Dress. I love the boho look it has. You can also keep the stripes going all the way into fall as this basic striped maxi dress has three quarter sleeves.
I don’t know about you, but this Fashionista definitely made me want to keep the trend going. I love how comfy the maxi dress looks and it never fails to make me want to go out and get one for myself. Now it’s your turn to go and try out the trend. Hurry before summer comes to an end!
