I admit – I am a huge dress lover. The good thing about summer is that this season is simply perfect for wearing the dresses. The not so good thing – the summer sales… This time around you can find lots of offers and I just get overwhelmed. I have so many summer dresses that my closet is literally exploding. Still, I will always find a new must-have-piece and buy it with some excuse. Who else knows this feeling?
Maxi dress is my summer must-have… going-out at night… date-time dress.
So why do I love maxi dress so much and how do I wear it?
I like the flowing, silky kind of maxi dresses in particular as they feel like second skin. They are absolutely comfortable and definitely a perfect fit for the night out. I usually choose wide ones as they look more feminine. The one I am wearing here is from IVI Collection. It is their last year´s collection but you might find similar here
I especially like the pattern and light material of this dress. Make sure you choose the pattern and colors that fit to your personal style and character. Maxi dress in my opinion always looks elegant and lady-like. Especially if you combine it with some basic essentials like luxurious bag or elegant shoes – either high heels, but also flat shoes will do. On this picture I combined it with Neverfull by Louis Vuitton
Maxi has a long history. Already in the 1960′s, Oscar de la Renta designed something that would be gracing the ankles of fashionable people. In 1967 the maxi length replaced the mini skirt. Designers such as YSL and Dior followed this trend, making the maxi dress it-piece in fashion during the 70′s. Me personally, I am very happy that this trend is a never-ending one.
Back to sales. Happily you can find great selection of maxi dresses at the moment – so you should stock up for the next summer! I linked some for you below.
My personal motto this summer: Be fashionable, be feminine, wear maxi!
