You Said: Yes to Maxi Dresses

June 27th, 2010


tie-dye-maxi-dress_062310We asked: Would you wear Maxi Dresses?

You said:  Yes to Maxi Dresses, with a 57% to 43% vote.

Style tip? Maxi Dresses, very popular in the boho 70s, reappeared on the fashion scene a few seasons ago.  And now that it’s summer, their simple, long silhouette, paired with espadrilles and oversized sunglasses, feels very California chic.  This style, because it is floor length, can overwhelm petite frames - so it’s best worn on taller women.  If you’re petite and would like to try a maxi dress, look for one with a closer fit and a smaller pattern to keep the look in proportion.

Next question: School days may be out, but backpacks are very In with the fashion crowd. But these aren’t your typical Jansports - these new backpacks feature sophisticated colors and details - like leather piping.  What do you think?  Tell us, would you wear a backpack?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Hi, I am the owner of “The Maxi Dress Shop” in the UK. We expected the maxi dress to be popular this summer, but nothing prepared us for the explosion in interest in this latest fashion. And since a lot of celebrities have been spotted wearing dresses quite similar to the one you have pictured we expect the trend to get stronger over the next 2 -3 years. They are very popular amongst festival goers in the UK. Do you find the same over there?
