Maxi dress: comes and goes, but never out of date

05/04/2015

Maxi dresses have always been a summer staple for at least three reasons:  

 

1. Comfy and stylish;

2. Make you look tall and thin;

3. Easy to throw on and accessorize for most summer occasions. 

 

What used to be a style and design rule for the maxis, such as flat shoes, classic A-lines or strapless, is just a tiny part of the maxi trend nowadays. The one I’m wearing in this post is from Michael Kors. The floral print and long sleeve style with a leather belt makes the maxi a bit more dressier, in which case, the pair of studded high heel sandal works better than flat ones. The double-zip tote from Tory Burch Robinson collection is a great work-to-weekend style. It’s similar to Prada but you get the same look and quality for “less”.  

 

My new “toy” is the recently released Apple Watch. I’ve had it only for a few days and I’m not sure how I feel about it as a watch. I do like some of its features such as taking phone calls, tracking daily activities, etc. But so far, it’s more like a trendy accessory to me than a tech product. For that purpose, I’m glad that I purchased a stainless steel case with a white sport band. The modern appearance of the sport band just fits everything!

 

 

Maxi dress,也就是超长的及地裙,感觉在妈妈那个年代也是流行过一段时间的,记忆中以单色的简单款式为主。貌似十来年前,开始出现各种波西米亚风格或是大印花的长裙称霸夏日海滩。再后来maxi的款式、颜色就越来越多,从工作日到周末,从小约会到假日出行……各种场合都开始出现不同风格maxi的身影,尤其是在炎炎夏日,绝对是最受女性推崇的时尚单品之一。于是在时尚翻新速度比翻书还快的年代,maxi的热度虽然有增有减,但却从未退出过流行。这恐怕至少倚赖其三大杀手锏:其一,舒适又时髦;其二,显高又显瘦;其三,穿搭容易,稍作调整就秒杀各种场合。

 

文中的这件长袖花纹maxi是Michael Kors本季我个人最喜欢的单品,没有之一。裙摆这叉开得洋气,感觉有受到我泱泱大国旗袍文化启发。小皮带一掐腰不仅显得人拉长了几分,气势蹭得也跟着带了出来。若是休闲风格的maxi,我往往都是喜欢穿平底鞋搭配,彰显几分随意。但MK的这件风格更dressy一些,所以还是选择了白色的高跟铆钉凉鞋,颜色既不乍眼,又能增添几分时尚感。Tory Burch家的Robinson系列包包绝对是不可不入手的好货,样式经典,上班、约会还是出门逛街,都能撑得起来。TB家这款其实很像Prada家的镇家之宝之一“杀手包”,无论质量还是款式都不比Prada的差,价格还是人家一零头,你们懂的。

 

最后得说几句我的新玩具—苹果手表。刚拿到手没几天,还说不好具体感受。但目前来看,我觉得这货虽然有些功能也算实用有趣,但比起电子产品,还是觉得更像时尚单品。从这个角度来说,最好的选择绝对是运动表带,虽然舒适度不如其它几个,但潮到没朋友,搭啥都时髦。
