What: A Summer Trend We Love

Why: Long, flowing maxi dressesicon aren’t just for walking the red carpet or for wearing to a wedding. In fact, when worn in light, breezy fabrics and beautiful prints, they’re the perfect thing to cover up in during summer. See the way Kate Moss wears the trend; it’s practically effortless. Since there are so many options out there, all you have to do is find your favorite print and neckline and you’re set for the rest of the summer. How to wear it? If you’re long and lean, the dress should just barely graze the floor. You can wear heels to make it hit right or even sandals for a casual look. We adore this T Bags Long Convertible Dress in Brown Print. If you’re of the petite set, be careful since sweeping skirts can overwhelm a tiny frame. Try something that falls a touch above your ankles and wear it with high platform wedges. This Marc by Marc Jacobs Chantilly Flower Dress is playful and summery without weighing you down.

Thanks to People’s Off the Rack for spotting the trend.
