Trend: Maxi Dress
By Claire

So the new silhouette for the summer months is the long, flowing maxi dress. The look is supremely sophisticated, and works in a myriad of situations.
Meagan Good and Ashanti opt for printed styles in casual cuts…


Joy Bryant goes for a floor sweeping frock in solid royal blue…
And Alicia Keys dons an uber elegant strapless version for the red carpet…
Ever democratic, maxi dresses work on varying body types including everyone from the very petite Nicole Richie…
..to the more voluptuous Jill Scott…
Get the look with these affordable options:
1. Silence & Noise Printed Maxi Dress, $68; 2. Arden B Peacock Print Maxi Dress, $128; 3. Lily Strapless Maxi Dress, $98; 4. T-Bags Printed Maxi Dress, $132; 5. Curvy Jersey Maxi Dress, $95.
Splurge with these beauts:
1. Patrizia Pepe Tie Dye Bandeau Dress, $408; 2. Tibi Riviera Paisley Maxi Dress, $300. 3. Marciano Genova Maxi Dress, $198.
And for my plus sized sistas, I’ve got ya covered:

    I’m loving the maxi-dress look. I’m 5’9″. Do you think they look hot on tall women also?

    On Tall women (or petite) I could see a bit of tailoring helping…maybe tall girls should just try to find the longest dress possible?
