Fashion•Floral Dresses•Maxi Dresses•Slip Dresses•Spring and Summer Dress Trend April 24, 2014
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.
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.
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!
