Over the weekend, I saw the start up of a trend that used to be a big obsession of fashionistas all over the nation, Maxi Dresses! Recently, around campus and random days out, I have spotted these long and mainly printed dresses left and right, so I thought why not start the week talking about these fabulous dresses. Although this trend never really left the fashion world, it tends to appear during different seasons, and it seems that this Summer, Maxi printed dresses are the trend to follow.
Long dresses have been around for centuries, and seen being worn for black tie events or red carpet events, but with new designers appearing every year, they decided to modernize the look so fashionistas all over the world can feel dressed up yet casual for an exciting day out. These dresses can either be form fitting or loose fitting depending on what fit you prefer and they come in ranges of colors and patterns.
My featured Fashionista of the week is photographed showing a new maxi dress she purchased showing off a very interesting pattern…FLORAL PRINTS mixed with a sort of tribal print. It seems since these two trends are very popular this season, why not pair them together?! What I loved about this dress was how it had dark shades of brown and black mixed with red to give it a pop of color. She kept her bag simple but added a thick gold chain necklace to make her dress look more formal.
As always, I asked my featured Fashionista what her favorite piece of her outfit was and she said her dress and explained “ I like feeling comfortable for class and looking dressed up and girly without having to try so hard. Not only are Maxi dresses comfortable, but by adding a necklace or wearing heels with it you can take it from casual to dressy in no time. I also love to wear dark colors, but since it's the summer and brights are what is in, this dress is perfect because it has dark colors and pops of red, pink and green throughout it."
So if you love patterns and dresses, this is definitely the trend for you this summer! Maxi dresses will have you dressed up and looking fabulous this season, so don’t wait around to go get yours, hurry up and catch it before it’s gone!
