Style Spotlight: Maxi Dresses

Spring/Summer dressing for me is epitomised by the maxi dress; breezy, relaxed and perfect for holidays! The Spring 2009 RTW runways were full of a variety of maxis, as well as inspiration on how to wear them:

Monique Lhuillier spices up plain white with shades of brown and gold, whilst Douglas Hannant uses subtle pleats to add movement to a simple silhouette:

Patchwork prints at Duro Olowu and Just Cavalli:

Soft floral prints by Barbara Tfank and stronger colours at Naeem Khan:

Dennis Basso makes his maxi hijab-friendly with a textured jacket:

Carolina Herrera takes the look into evening with a tailored jacket, and Alberta Ferretti adds an interesting shrug:

Which look are you loving this year?

I personaly love maxi dresess,
they are light and
I can wear any jacket on top,
but I dont like halter neck
bcs. I have fealing like knot is pulling behind my neck,
and thats not comfy!
But I am happy that they are still in fashion,so we can have variety in modest wear.
