Hi Glam Gals,
I love maxi dresses! I remember wearing them in the 60s or was it the 70s? My daughter always tells me, “if you wore the style the first time around, you should not wear it when it comes back.” And, the truth is, I don’t want one that shows all the cleavage or my arms. I bought a black one from Laundry Shelli Segal that is actually a jumpsuit, no sleeves but an interesting front. The problem is its black! And it’s Spring and soon Summer!! I want prints and flowers or at least some color! Black looks too hot to wear during the day with flip flops or sandals. I’ve been searching all over and I’m about ready to start my own fashion line — Have you seen some fun maxi, patio or pool dresses that work for us??
Wow, that’s a tall order to fill. No black – o.k., and not much showing, even your arms.
Nancy, you have to remember that the appeal of the maxi is that breezy summer feel so you don’t want to be too buttoned up, otherwise you’ll end up like looking like this gal above, overwhelmed in fabric.( granted this Diane Von Furstenberg Lamine Print Silk dress does look too big for this petite young girl too).
More on breezy, airy maxis next post, but for now here are some maxi dresses that provide more coverage than most. Ladies, grab these dresses now if you like them. We can’t always guarantee they will be in stock for long. They are all from Nordstrom online.
