I have ‘maxi’ love for the maxi dress! Maxi dresses are definitely in the top three kind of dresses that I love to wear. I don’t seem to remember maxi dresses being around much till about ten years ago when they exploded onto the dress scene and soon took their rightful place as a major category of dresses. I remember coming out in a maxi dress in those early years and my husband asking me if I was going to the movies in my night clothes? I was tempted to say yes, as given the movie we were watching the chances of me falling asleep post popcorn were very high!
I enjoy wearing all kind of maxi dresses from casual t-shirt material dresses to fancy evening dresses. I have spoken about my love for shirt dresses before and maxi shirt dresses are just the icing on the cake for me! I loved the bold print on this maxi and the fact that it was a monochrome shirt dress with pockets – it practically jumped into my basket and sold itself to me! I thought the faces looked a bit Greek so I built on that theme by pairing the dress with gladiator sandals. I am not quite sure where the ancient Greeks stood on denim jackets but nonetheless they are a great coverup in milder weather.
On a different note, I thought it may be useful to provide some links to clothes available in the market that are similar to the silhouette that I am lookbooking in a given post. Therefore, in this post I am including pictures of three other dresses that are currently available in stores. Below are three maxi shirt dresses that I love the look off – do check them out (they will go straight to the site if you click on them). As always, thank you for reading!
