Festivals of all sorts have been dominating the last few summers as the It thing to do. I know I can’t be the only one who is sick and tired of denim cut offs and a faded *insert 70’s band name here* tee. If you plan on spending the day and/or night on a blanket in the grass and sipping wine from a plastic cup, a cocktail dress and heels ain’t gonna cut it.
Move over cocktail slip on , there’s a new dress in town!
They say maxi dresses and skirts are making a comeback this year since they dominated the Spring runways. But did they ever really leave? From the 90’s when maxi dresses became every beach babe’s must-have till now, dominating the street style scene. The perfect length is around the ankles or gently touching the floor, as middies can be unflattering. You can’t go wrong with a daring slit or a flirty back, in a bright statement color or a gentle pastel. My personal obsession; colors and patterns mixed at random but matching perfectly.
This last weekend I had a blast at the A to JaZZ Festival here in Sofia. I wore a gorgeous Charlotte Russe maxi dress with rose gold Nine West sandals and earrings, Esprit bag and my favorite name necklace in white gold.
Put your hair up in a bun, relax and enjoy the music. Clean, bright or gypsy chic, the maxi dress is here to stay!
Love, Silvia Mèlange
