Summer Trend: Maxi Dress

 

In Bill Cunningham’s ‘On the Street’ piece about the “premature visit of August weather” in New York City he noticed that there were hordes of women wearing floor lenght or maxi dresses.

 

Yes, ladies (and gents) maxi dresses à la Nicole Richie are one of the very popular silhouettes this summer and were featured on the runways of Matthew Williamson Spring 2009, Bottega Veneta Resort 2010 and Hermes Spring 2009.
