The hot trend for maxi dresses is still going strong for spring and summer of 2009. This year’s maxi dresses feature block colors, graphic prints, tie dye, and ombre effects. Maxi dresses can go from super casual to super dressy, from the most casual summer picnic to the most fabulous summer wedding.
On the casual end of the spectrum, this silk tie-dye dress by Victoria’s Secret has a gorgeous hippie vibe that won’t take the focus away from you. With an empire waist and a 41″ length (from the natural waist), this dress would be a fabulous and versatile garment to pack for your summer vacation!
The Gypsy 05 “Zoe” maxi dress (shown above in turquoise) is a big hit for this spring and summer. It features rolled straps, a V neckline, and a tie-dye design at around knee level. This comfortable stunner also comes in a grey combo, an orange combo, and a fuchsia combo.
