For a while, everyone was crazy about maxi dresses. Gone are the days of barely there hemline; enter ladylike, mature maxi everything. Since the trend hits the runway, maxi dresses/skirts/jumpsuits hit every single retail outlet. Everyone covered up.
Looks like the trend is not going away yet and why not? I love maxi anything. I recently bought a maxi skirt and it’s a great investment piece, if I may say so myself. It covers you up, can be dressed up and down (depending on what you pair it with) and hey, no one’s gonna insult you.
So, here’s my top picks!
Just reading the editor’s notes from Net-a-Porter already makes me fall in love with both Couture dresses all over again!
“A silver crystal-encrusted bodice and cascading train give Marchesa’s white silk-chiffon gown a dramatic feel. Wear this draped one-shoulder design to a red carpet event or as an eye-catching bridal option.”
“An opulent jewel tone and signature corsage give Lanvin’s violet washed-satin asymmetric gown a contemporary spin. Master the art of modern glamour by pairing this floor-length design with an emerald necklace and cutout heels.”
Feeling the need to splurge on yourself but not maxed out your credit line? Choose these high-street options!
Finally, we have what I’d like to term ” disposable fashion”. It’s just a trend, nothing to get too excited about. So, why don’t we spend some dinner money and forget about it when we get bored of it?
