Fashion word of the day
I've been asked by my clients to define certain fashion terms that I use. There are so many out there, after all, that even I don't know all of them. Since one of the big deals for Spring is the maxi dress, let's define the word and show some examples here. This begins the first of many blogs entitled: Fashion word of the day.
Maxi dress-- a dress that is ankle or even floor length. Though typically seen this season in the form of a sundress, a maxi dress is any dress of full length. We are seeing maxi dresses in various ethnic or floral prints, and in bold solids. They are made in gauzy, lightweight, or silky fabrics. This makes them perfect for beachwear, vacationing, date night with the hubby, or out to lunch with the girlfriends. To accessorize, I recommend bold hoops or dangling earrings, and bangle bracelets. Also, sandals or espadrilles work for footwear.
