I am hoping maxi dresses are still in this summer. Ah, who am I kidding, I am going to wear them this summer, in or out. Being of a Certain Age, I have guidelines. But I can’t resist the ease of a long dress and the wonderful leg-cover it allows.
Here are some of the things I look for:
- A bit of back coverage. I prefer just a nice scoop in the back, not a deep vee that exposes lots of skin.
- A strap that is bra-friendly, or at least friendly to a supportive camisole.
- Clean, simple lines – not a boat-load of ruffles
- Solids, stripes, or simple graphic prints, maybe a subtle floral – but no Hawaiian explosions for me.
|Yummy color, forgiving fit, simple cut – is the slit a little daring?
|Simplicity defined! But it would be a fun backdrop for summer
jewelry and scarves. Nordstroms, $118
|For my Boho side. I love the airy fabric and Ikat print.
I’d def wear a cami for the neckline exposure. Amazon, $175
Do you wear maxi dresses/skirts in the warm months? What are your preferences for style, fabric, colors? Or am I already way past this trend? : o
Happy Friday to all!
