Confession time...I loathe the maxidress.
I cannot wait for the trend to go away. It is, in my opinion,
the modern-day muumuu.
There have been too many examples
of the maxi dress worn badly for too many seasons
and it has made me maxi-bitter.
Not every trend should be embraced by every one...
AAAhhhhhhhh......Thank you for letting me get that off my chest.
That said, can I please share my unreasonable
affection for the maxi skirt? Yes, you need some height to carry it off, but I am in love x 1million.
|Aiko Drawstring Maxi about $140US from Saks Fifth Avenue|
|Desert Florals Maxi Skirt at Free People about $95AU|
|Tube Maxi Skirt by KJ Kirrily Johnston $198AU at MyCatwalk.com|
|Rag & Bone Bequia at Saks about $511AU|
The best advice I've seen on maxi skirts?
The look already has a Woodstock vibe,
so keep more city, less hippy.
I think another good tip is to
avoid solid black....it's just too heavy.
And unless you're approaching 6 feet tall, less than 100 pounds and often mistaken for a runway hottie, a fitted top (and if the season allows bare arms) are necessito to give the look some shape.
