Casual maxi dresses seem to come and go, but with the resurgence of 70’s fashion for Spring and Summer 2011, they are really going to be on trend this season.
Over the years I have written about casual maxi dresses several times and my perception is unchanged. I vote nay. I just can’t get my head around an ankle length dress for a casual ensemble. Similar to my thoughts on casual maxi skirts, long dresses scream formal wear to me and that’s the only way I can see it. Casual maxi dresses also remind me too much of nighties. Of course this is a completely subjective opinion, but to me all women look better showing off a bit of leg when they sport an outfit with a relaxed vibe.
I won’t be adding a casual maxi dress to my wardrobe this season. How about you?
