Trends & Friends: Maxi Dress

Trend





Maxi dresses are back! They have been around for a few years.  Seems like every year when spring/summer comes around they start to reappear.  What is it that we love about them? Maybe it's the comfort, maybe it's the flowiness.  Maybe they are just cute & look good on almost everyone. Except me....LOL  This season there is a new crop of Maxi dresses, from strapless, tube top, halter or even long sleeve. If you love maxi dresses, there is a style for you. You can be casual & cozy wearing it with sandals & flip flops or jazz it up for a evening out on the town. I may give them another try this year, no promises. Do take a look at my friends looking oh so lovely and comfy in their maxi dresses. If they don't tempt you to try this trend then no one else will.  Enjoy!

The Friends

Nik from XOXO NikStar is wearing Pure Engery Maxi from Target. The girl can't help it with those poses, it's the model in her! She sure knows how to rock a maxi dress. 

Valerie from Blog to Be Alive is wearing tube top maxi from Torrid.  She was feature in Vivelesrondes, she showed off her closet and some of her favorite outfits. No surprise her maxi dress made the cut, it's comfy & cute. Two major requirements for most woman.

Lori from Mad Lori is wearing maxi dress from Meijer, she went in for groceries and came out with a cute dress. Don't you love those kinds of shopping trips!

Gabi from Hungry for Fashion is wearing maxi dress from Forever 21. She loves warm weather, because she gets to wear her maxi, but she hates the allergies it brings. No worries Gabi allergies and all you look fab in your maxi!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks Trends & Friends. I love showing off all your great outfits. So if you want to be featured, don't be shy email your pics. Future T&F post will include rompers, plaid, brogues/oxfords. So please send me your pics or a link where I can find your look.
Just to show you that maxi don't work well for me here is a look from last summer. I loved the colors, but felt it didn't look great on me.

  7. Maxi dresses are great. They can be formal or just relaxing vibe. They're perfect for just... chilling. I always have the vision of resorts and sippin some drinks on the beach while wearing a maxi dress, haha!

    I need to go wear mine sometime.. but with my short stature it still kind of piles down on the ground.
