Four Trends Of Long Maxi Dresses In 2013

CHENGDU, China, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Long maxi dresses and flowing gowns are the highlight of 2013, and online fashion retailer has the lowdown on what's trending in the world of long maxi dresses. Recent shows around the world have had ladies craving floor-length cheap maxi dresses in vibrant colours and innumerable "how to make your own maxi" tutorials have been popping up all over the internet. An age-old trend, leading fashion designers like Gucci, Halston, Biba and Stella McCartney have always been experimenting with them, and succeeding. Whether a chic Bohemian look or an iconic Hollywood star look, long maxi dresses will make sure you look your best.

These classy and debonair maxi long dresses come in many forms and silhouettes, like flowing, drapey and slim or body hugging styles. They are available in plain fabrics and prints and come with different necklines like a high neckline, strappy or strapless, or the halter type. There are no specific fabrics for these show stoppers and anything – chiffon, silk, cotton, or polyester – can form a beautiful maxi.

Let us have a look at the kinds of maxis that are trending this year.

Brightly Coloured Flowing Maxis

The Issa London show at London Fashion Week for the spring/summer 2013 season saw models walking the ramp in bold pink and orange combinations. These maxis can be belted or left loose and can be accessorised with funky gold ornaments.


Even the plainest of the maxis can be turned sexy with a hint of neon yellow and a racer back. Monochromes are the in-thing this year. A few black stripes on a white maxi will make you look gorgeous and yet simple this summer. Another variant of the monochrome look is the plain white maxi dress that gives an innocent and feminine look. White always adds to the serene nature of a woman and her beauty. Just a note of caution: a few too many embellishments here can result in a bridal look.
