So, I know you maxi naysayers are going to say…not another maxi dress post! I apologize. I can’t help myself. The prevalence of seventies style in the spring collections and my neverending love for the maxi requires me to continue to try to convince those of you that think you can’t wear them that you CAN! I know I’ve told you this before, but it bears repeating. I am by no means tall. However, by rockin’ heels or getting my frocks hemmed, I have no trouble steppin’ out in a slew of maxis. Try wearing maxis in one head to toe color or ones with vertical lines to make you appear taller if you’re height challenged like myself. Or go for broke and say to heck with the rules by trying out a vibrant print!
I know many of you are experiencing frigid temps right now. Never fear. By throwing a little cropped jacket on over your maxi, you can make the look season appropriate. You might want to throw a parka on over your jacket though. HAHA. This look from Adam’s Spring 2011 collection illustrates what I’m talking about to a tee…And make sure you check out the whole collection over at Style.com. Each piece is divinely flattering!
So, have I made a compelling argument lovelies? Are you willing to jump aboard the maxi train yet? In case you are…Here are few that I’m loving!
