GOING BEYOND THE MAXI DRESS THIS SUMMER
The temperatures are climbing and it’s time to wear lighter clothing and head to parties on rooftops and beaches. It’s also time to explore your closet and find out what still works and what you need to purchase during your summer spree. Let’s talk about the maxi dress.
Oscar de la Renta introduced the ankle-length maxi back in 1960 and to this it has become synonymous with summer. The maxi remains a trend in the world of fashion because of its versatility. Whether you’re heading to a formal gala or a casual walk on the seashore, you can always find a suitable maxi dress.
They are so universally appealing that choosing what to wear on your slay-day will be a no-brainer with this type of dress in your closet. Top it off with your favorite sunglasses and summer boaters or straw hats, and you’ll definitely look like you’re out in vacation and feeling relaxed yet elegant.
We’re starting to wonder if the maxi’s fame is starting to be too much of a good thing. Wearing one will not make you stand out anymore, or at least against a crowd of people sporting the same type of dress. As we see it, summertime is the season to stand out and a season for adventure and play. Unless your primary goal is to feel picturesque as an ocean goddess savoring the summertime vibe, it’s no longer a recommended option.
Instead, you can opt for a summer guise that is not as limiting and ubiquitous as the maxi dress. Break away with the wide range of clothing the fashion industry now has to offer － from crop tops to off-shoulders, bikinis to beach shorts. We’re not saying no to your go-to – we’re just saying….
The choices are endless.
Don’t let the trends set you; you set them.
