Maxi Dresses – New Seasons picks

March 23rd, 2012


Since they re-emerged from their 70s closet a few summer’s ago, Maxi dresses have become a real wardrobe staple. They show no signs of going away, instead they vary their style, fit and prints to fit in with the new season. This season promises more of the same, with the versatile length a part of almost every dress collection, from High Street favourites to designer classics.

I am a huge fan of maxi dresses. They can look oh so elegant for evening occasions, cool and floaty for summer’s days, but also adding that extra length when the temperatures take a downturn, as they often can in early Spring. They cover a multitude of sins, from fat thighs to legs that could do with a shave, and can suit every style, from Boho to rock chick. Here are some of my favourite maxi looks from this season.

  1. I adore maxi dresses, throw one on at the last minute, transforming! I love the DVF dress. I have just bought a plain black t shirt style in a travel happy fabric from Chico’s! Am determined to add a couple more to the closet this year.

    I’m so with you on this Geraldine. I have a wardrobe full for both daytime and evening wear and just think they are so useful to have. And yes, the DVF one is fantastic.xx
