March Shopping Madness: Mile-Long Maxis

Maxi dresses are the ultimate way to exude a stylish laid-back look. Just look at Stella McCartney's Spring '08 collection, which was filled with feminine floral maxis. Also take cue from Nicole Richie who recently frolicked LA in a paisley maxi dress. There's something to be said about a dress that can make you look put together and feel comfy at the same time. Do what you will with the neckline but make sure your maxi is floor length. After all, anything shorter wouldn't be a mile-long maxi.

Delia's also has a GREAT one for $50 - the cool thing is that I bought it before the trend started and I've been wearing it for weeks...

i love how comfy these maxi dresses may look ,but for my body type it seems that i'd look odd wearing these..(i might as well try to see if it suits me though)

forgive me for being too practical, but doesn't it bug you guys that the bottom of the dress trails on the ground and makes it kind of dirty? not only that but i would think i'd be stepping on the hem and tripping all over the place... =( (they are pretty though.)

I love love LOVE maxi dresses and I'm so glad that there are more designers coming out with them now. I have a couple from Forever 21 and I get so many compliments when I wear them. I bought a green one from Old Navy today (it was the last one!) and I can't wait to wear it!

I wish I can wear these type of dresses but since I'm short, it's a no go for me.

I'll be passing on this trend. I think you have to be tall & super skinny to pull it off (I'm SHORT and not a toothpick). Besides, i hate the name "maxi." A maxi dress sounds like what you where on a fat day during your period.

Sometimes I like them and I have a couple that I do wear in the summer. But sometimes I think they look weird on me since I'm so tiny. Kind of overwhelming. But I'd love one like Nicole's...the material looks really light and soft and I love the hippie vibe.

I love maxi dresses I was a little skeptical about them last spring/summer since minis were in but I totally LOVE the furstenberg one but they don't have it in my size :(

I LOVE maxi dresses. Such an nice alternative to wearing jeans out and about. I do have problems making sure they're long enough. FYI, if you're tall, the Old Navy dresses are out and that one is pretty cute!
