Spring Trends: The Maxi Dress

1:30 PM

Forever 21 - Knock IT Off!
I guess we should just refer to F21 as the "knock-off shop"! The dress on the left is the Foley for Foley + Corinna Smock Long Dress that retails for $440. The one of the right is Forever 21's Chiffon Floral Dress for $39.80.

Pebble Dress by Twinkle, Anthropologie - $288. Made from silk voile and trimmed in pink crepe de chine.

Desiree Dress by Tricia Fixx, Couture Candy - $275. Made in 100% polyester with crochet trim.

Plenty by Tracy Reese Maxi Slip Dress, Couture Candy - $319. Made in 100% silk.

Robbie Bee Split Front Silk Maxi Dress (Plus), Nordstrom - $88.00. Made in 100% silk chiffon.

Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati Mesh Tank Dress (Plus), Nordstrom - $118. Made in nylon.

These dresses are very reminiscent of the 1970's and to me, that's what Spring/Summer 2007 feels like. During the 1970's, women chose who they wanted to be and how they wanted to dress. They wore mini skirts one day and a maxi dress the next... just like this seasons mini shifts and maxi dresses. These romantic, dreamy, flowing full length-maxi dresses in empire waist or halter neck styles should graze the ankle instead of the floor for a "wearable" look that will not be hazardous and should be made in exotic prints and "Pucci-style" abstract patterns. They can be worn with a wedge heel, thong sandals or cute flip-flops.
