To be honest, I was never certain about the maxi dress trend until I saw this Fashionista on campus the other day. I had always believed that maxi dresses were best suited for those over 5’6”, and those of us who are vertically challenged will never be able to rock this trend, but this Fashionista proves otherwise. Her gorgeous printed dress is perfect for walking around in the hot sun and fits her like a glove. The bright, geometric pattern is right on cue with this summer’s graphic color story. She perfectly pairs the dress with some metallic t-strap sandals. Most importantly though, she shows that those of us who are petite can indeed wear the maxi dress and look totally awesome.
For this fall ,maxi dresses are holding strong and can be found in pretty much any store. The shops are featuring these dresses in luxurious fall colors like olive green, smoky black, and chestnut brown. I’m also seeing a lot of these dresses made in sheer fabrics, which helps to offset the length of the dress by keeping it from looking too heavy. The designers are featuring these dresses paired with gravity-defying chunky wedges. Try this delicious maxi dress from Nasty Gal with these wedges from Urban Outfitters. What I love most about these dresses is that they can easily transition from summer to fall. Layering thick knit socks or tights under the dress and adding this trench coat over top will keep you incredibly fashionable this season.
