Though the maxi trend is always present I have been ignoring it for at least the last five years. I went from wearing super long skirts and dresses a lot to not wearing them at all and truthfully wasn’t missing them too much. But this season, even I couldn’t resist the feverish buzz around maxi's.

Summer would be incomprehensible without colorful dresses and flowy skirts and this particular season is not complete without long ones too. Feminine and chic maxis are really easy to style, very comfortable and extremely versatile. Pair them with a flat sandal and an over-sized hobo for brunch with friends or going shopping and with a strappy heel and clutch for a dressier look. If it’s a bit cold outside, throw on a jean jacket or a warm little shrug (long chunky cardigans won’t work and will look sloppy). With jewelry don’t restrict yourself, pick big and bold necklaces, earrings and cuffs; the maxi dress can handle a lot J

Despite some opinions out there, maxi dresses are pretty flattering for almost any body type and height. The main trick is to figure out which one is most suitable for you. Try, try and try again and you’ll find one that not only speaks to you and your style but also fits you perfectly.
P.S. Never let your hemline drag on the floor – it always looks messy.
