Trend Report - Maxi Dresses


This summer my ultra favorite trend is the always comfy maxi dress. The 60's style long length dresses offer the perfect breezy vibe for any summer event. Before embarking on my Jamaican adventure a few weeks back, I stopped by Venice beach where I discovered this feather print strapless maxi at one of my favorite boutiques on the famous boulevard. The length was perfect for a day to night transition and any opportunity to wear white when you know you'll be soaking up extra rays, is an opportunity I always take. 

When it comes time to choose your maxi dress try to stick with smaller more subtle prints. Since you're rocking the extra fabric you wanna be careful not to go over board with the patterns. Save the bigger and bolder prints for your mini dresses. In order to shake off the beach vibe and add that night life flair, try pairing your maxi with a denim or leather jacket for an edgy chic alternative. Going for that relaxed vibe, add a floppy hat like Disney star Vanessa Hudgens. To achieve that effortless red carpet look, try cinching in the waste with a belt like the always stunning Amber Lancaster. 

Style maven Nicole Richie loves maxi's so much they're literally popping up everywhere in her uh-mazing Winter Kate collection and stylist to the stars, Rachel Zoe has recently been photographed in more maxi dresses than I could psychically fit into my closest. Whether it be an attempt to conceal her post baby body or just Rachel following the trends, one things for sure, maxi's are here in a major way and I couldn't be more thrilled. Below are some pictures of my favorite celebrities killing it in their favorite maxi dresses. Which look is your favorite?






Something Extra: Loving this trend? I pulled some of my favorite maxi dresses available online. Click the picture to get the look.

  68. Love them all, but yours is beautiful!
    I just bought one recently and have a question that I would love for you to answer: I need to have mine hemmed. What length is proper? An inch from the floor? More? I don't want it to drag! I mainly want to wear mine with flat sandals and flip flops.
