We are back to round out the trends for this upcoming Spring and Summer season.  Part 1 was already covered here.  To recap we talked about cutout dresses and feminine touches like lace and eyelet.  Moving on lets round out the top five trends.

Maxi Dresses
Okay I think this trend is definitely here to stay.  I was a little iffy about them last year but once you put a maxi dress on you never want to wear a short dress again.  Hello comfortable!  
They can be dressed up with some Espadrilles or dressed down with some gladiator sandals.  I just picked up this striped maxi and seriously want to order it in every color pattern they make.  The material is nice and has a great drape. Does not wrinkle and hangs really well.  I was super impressed especially since it was like ten bucks! Also notice the stripes match up perfectly.
you can find it here
Here are some maxis I have had my eye on.

Florals and Prints
I am seriously obsessed with this dress I wore over Easter and wouldn’t you know it’s a maxi. I found it randomly on a clearance rack at Target.  It was $11.  When I tried it on and fell in love I scoured the store trying to find more but it must have been a return or something.  Keep your eye out I’m sure they will be bringing them back.

I absolutely love the skirt on it.
This season is all about florals and big bold prints.

Slip Dresses
This last one I don’t know if I’m 100% on board with this trend yet but I am seeing them pop up on all the major sites.  I think it is a fine line between a slip dress and looking like you wore your nightie out.  I think it can look more appropriate by maybe laying top top….think blazer or longer cardigan.

Or my other new love right now….don’t boo and hiss but I’m loving the Kimono look. Slip dress, kimono and funky headband….definitely channeling my boho hippie side with that one!

Last thing let me tell you the trend I NEVER want to see come back! One word.  Sunflowers
Let’s leave Sunflowers where they belong in the 90’s please let’s keep it that way!
Alright tell me what trends you are liking for this season!  What trends can you not stand!  I’m looking forward to flips flops, tans and bright colors what about you???  Btw you can follow along with all my Summer trends on Instagram!  Don’t forget to link up tomorrow for the Friday Favorites! xoxoxo

    I’ve been obsessed with Maxi’s lately! I just posted two of my faves on the blog.(A dress and a skirt) I love slip dresses too! I had this really cute black cynthia vincent one and I spilled olive oil(like a lot) on it and was never able to get it out! So disappointing! XO

  2. I love the striped maxi you’re wearing! I’m obsessed with maxi for the exact reason you said – they are just so comfy!! I’m all about the floral print – but totally agree lets keep the sunflowers at bay!!

  3. Maxi dresses are seriously the best thing that has happened to women’s wear in years. They are so easy and comfortable. I’m actually wearing the stripe cutout dress that I featured on my crave and save post as we speak! Perfect for traveling :)

    Xo, jen

    I JUSt started wearing maxi dresses last year and I love them. I shied away because I’m so short and many were too engulfing but I finally found a few that were perfect. I’m definlty in the market for more because they are so easily made chic and are so comfortable.

    I’m trying to get on board with slip dresses, but again my body frame doesn’t seem to be my friend. I have um…very small assets up top ;) so sometimes the dress looks like an actual slip haha.

    The florals are lovely and i agree NO SUNFLOWERS!

  5. OMG I completely agree, I cannot get on board with the sunflower or daisy print dresses. Sorry but if I wore it when I was in like 3rd grade and I wasn’t cool then, it’s not cool now!!! I’m totally loving that striped maxi you’re wearing! Looks AMAZING on you! There are like 10 dresses (at least) that you have on this post that I’m dying to get!

  6. Would you believe I don’t have a maxi dress? I am always afraid it will look like a tent on me! I am going to have to try one this season for sure. My office is casual so I am thinking maxi skirts and cute T’s are going to be my staple this summer!

  7. Krystal R. says:

    Love the slip dresses! Because of my height I cant do maxi dresses because I look ridiculous! But i love two of them, the top right grey one and the bottom middle one. Love them. Also you look great in the stripped one!

  8. Joey says:

    Oh gosh the sunflower trend! How did that even happen in the first place? haha! I love maxi dresses–but I’m such a shrimp that they’re all so crazy long on me. Slip dresses have to be the most comfortable and yet sexiest things ever. I am a FAN!

  9. Gina says:

    I love that striped maxi on you! So true about not having to shave…
    XO, Gina

  10. JumpingJE says:

    You found your Easter dress for $11!!! Haha you’re so good at this!

  11. I always thought I’d look awful in maxis but once I put my first one on… it was LOVE. Seriously… most comfortable thing EVER. And like you said… you can wear them so many different ways. I’ve worn them for lounging around and I’ve worn them to weddings!
    P.S. Totally noticed the perfect striping on that dress and was waiting for you to mention it. ;P

  12. I have been trying to find a maxi that I love since last summer!! I’m hoping this will be my year.. haha I’m so picky! Love all of your options though, Asos has some really cute ones!

  13. Ashley says:

    I actually do not even own a maxi dress…I was skeptical for a while but I think I want to buy a couple this year! I really love that striped one!!!

  14. I love a good floral dress! I have always loved slip dresses though – so i think those are just my all time favorite dress style in general!


  15. Megan says:

    I live in maxi dresses & skirts! I’m so thankful that my job allows them as “business casual” because it definitely feels like I’m coming to work in pjs (like today for instance) Lol!

    I LOVE the kimono look too! I have a couple but definitely need more in my life!

  16. Meghan says:

    Maxi dresses and skirts are my go-to for the summer when I’m taking a day off from shaving! I love your picks for slip dresses too! xo

  17. Looooove that maxi dress you had on for Easter — what a gorgeous print :) My closet is full of maxis, I heart them so.

  18. Maxi dresses and skirts are my favorite! I hope they never go out of style haha.

  19. I love myself a good maxi dress! I actually just picked up a fabulous one from TJ Maxx for $20 – it’s black with a grey chevron toward the bottom, and the straps criss-cross in the back. I am so excited to rock it this summer!

  20. sooo many great picks! i love maxi dresses but i always get so hot in them!! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  21. Kristen says:

    no shit, i have been drooling over that maxi, but in a different colour. thanks so much for sharing, now i know its fabulous. how tall are you – whats the length like? i’m 5’9 and i struggle with maxis. anywho…. is that the babysitters club? i don’t dig the sunflower look either.

  22. I love maxis but look hideous in them

  23. I love maxi dresses, so comfortable! My only problem is finding them short enough for me. I always end up stepping on them or I have to hold them in one hand when I walk so I don’t trip. Sexy!

  24. Girl! I just posted on Tuesday about my love for maxi dresses! I have already slurged on several for this season. I’m loving the floral number you are wearing in this post! And, yes… I agree on the sunflower dress! Whenever I see one I seriously gag!! SOOO 90’s…

  25. alicia says:

    I love maxi’s! such pretty picks.

  26. I am so in love with florals and slip dresses. And kimonos are awesome too. Seriously… I used to have at least three or four sunflower outfits back in the day. I rocked those flowers like nobody’s business! ;)

  27. Maxi’s are so comfortable and that ecard may have legit crossed my mind a time or two when putting one on. Haha! I am not a huge floral person but some larger print florals can be really pretty.

  28. um hi could you be cuter? the answer is no. i love spring dresses!

  29. I want every single maxi dress you posted! And now I have like 8 tabs open of all of them! Ahhh! And you look gorgeous as always!

  30. haha sunflowers! I was never really into them thankfully. I love that pink maxi from ASOS!!

  31. Love, love maxis! That orange sleeveless one is calling my name (and would still make you look awesome post-dinner and drinks with the loose waistband ha). I absolutely HATE the crop top trend. Why? Unless your J. Alba I think they need to go back to the 80s and Tiffany’s closet.

  32. I loooove maxi dresses! I have so many though, I have cut myself off from buying any more this year.

  33. I loooooove that floral maxi you have! So pretty!!!! I have yet to purchase a maxi dress. I can never find one that I feel I look good in. I am determined to hopefully track one down this year!

    Sunflowers! Please no! I have a sunflower jean hat that I wore in 6th grade. Lord help me.

  34. looove the Nordstrom navy one you have on there and the striped one you just got! Thanks for sharing and giving me a reason to spend $$ hahaha xoxo

  35. brooke lyn says:

    I want them alllllll!

  36. ha! Remember Sunflower perfume?! I forgot how popular that used to be. And girl your body is on point!! I would never look like that in a tight maxi!!

  37. I would live in maxi dresses if I could! Also obsessed with anything floral and I agree, I’m only like half way on board with the slip dresses. I haven’t bought one yet but they are growing on me! So many good F21 picks here!

  38. Myra says:

    I loveee kimonos and maxi dresses! Especially in this heat, they are lifesavers. But the slip dresses? I just can’t get on that train. A few times I’ve seen it here & have done a double-take to make sure the gal wasn’t walking around in lingerie or a nightie! Haha!

  39. Love a good maxi dress. That’s great Kimono as well!


  40. I love a good maxi, especially when they make you feel like you aren’t wearing anything at all. Ya know?

  41. I LOVE me some maxis! I love the ecard of wearing maxis so you don’t have to shave! Bahaha! You got an awesome steal on that $11 maxi! Wooo!
