Striped casual maxi dresses are quite the trend this season andĀ have been popping up all over the show. The stripes are usually broad and horizontal, and the silhouette either flared or form fitting.

I’m not going to beat around the bush. I vote a subjective nay. Very few things don’t make it through my style filter, butĀ casual maxi dresses is one of them. And to my eye, the broad horizontal stripe makes them even less flattering (although I do like broad horizontal stripes on tops, tunics and short dresses). To me these items look like ankle length t-shirts, which in a sense is precisely what they are! And the bolder the stripe, the less I like it. What’s your verdict?
