Women are in love with dresses, especially mini and midi dresses, and once they are have the chance to choose between a dress and jeans they will always go with the attire. But maxi dresses are something different. This year’s Mark & Roberts Maxi dresses collection has shown us that Maxi is the new chic.
Women who prefer wearing Mark & Roberts maxi dresses over midis are considered as more cool and some are even considered as hippie, and hippie has never been more in style. We advise you to lay your eyes on a maxi dress this season – it is easy to wear, easy to style and the 2017 fashion designers fancy it. Take a look at our top 6 picks that will help you rock the trend:
1. Transparent Elegance
While the fall season does try to cover up a little more than usual, the trend of transparent looks comes back strongly, revealing the beauty of the bodies underneath, often the crotch region covered by black panties that ride to the hips. It can be lace accented with guipure or it can have shiny artistry throughout, with the body left entirely bare.
We even see transparent tank tops layered under some bulkier, flashier pieces, such as the Moschino effect we enjoyed, tucked into leather skirts. Yummy glitter accented transparent gowns also appear at Roberto Cavalli and it is plain delectable. Even more intriguing is the use of embroidery to create such lovely designs as those found on the Alberta Ferretti runways in Milan.
2. Embroidery Over Lace
While more common in 2015 and on the spring runways, both embroidery and lace are still a vital part of the fashion trends, making the appearance of turtleneck lace dresses under velvet layers and over masculine pants rather refreshing. At Mulberry, the gorgeous lace dresses also come with leather jackets worn over and shiny studs adding to the swishing effects of the skirts, making the pieces all the lovelier to own.
The richness of the embroideries can also easily be found throughout, appearing all the more on the Milan catwalk, the intricacies often deserving of high praise. Roberto Cavalli ensured that we get incredible embroideries on the plunge-neck tops and extra-long coats, not sparing talents when it came to the accessories as well. Add on the beauty of embroidery over transparent gowns, such as that seen at Alberta Ferretti and one has to admit that this is one of the best fashion trends meant for fall 2016.
3. Disco Sequins
Shiny looks are all the rage and we cannot get enough of them. There were sequins in 2015, more in the spring of 2016, and now as we head into fall they seem to be following us, this time in even brighter colors. The shine is impeccable and we are enjoying the mini dresses covered in it, showing off floral prints, the spaghetti strapped pieces appearing at Ashish with Gold Digger emblazoned across the chest (this would make a great Halloween costume, complete with the wig), and the stud-covered Burberry looks that we can barely get enough of.
Black sequins brought in the night sky at Simone Rocha, adding a classical touch to the already classic cuts, but it was Topshop Unique that really accentuated the whole sequins with artistic panting looks with calf-length slip dresses, bodies elongated in the process. Glittering effects also appear due to tinsel and paillettes, seen profusely on Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Versace, and more.
4. Metallic Shine
The metallic looks were all the rage on the catwalks as we noticed skirts and various types of maxi dress and everything in between appearing in silver, gold, copper and more. It was a look we easily fell in love with, the variety of shiny metallic details all the more attractive when appearing as art on transparent gowns such as that seen on the Alexander McQueen runway, or as rather lovely prints on knee-length coats appearing at Peter Pilotto.
Decorative tinsel made many of the pieces seen on the runways look especially shiny with their metallic sheen, from golden coats at Dolce & Gabbana to silver skirts at Fendi, and Marco de Vincenzo giving us even more in that style. The daytime shimmer from the metallic shine was to be commended, bringing some spice to the wardrobes, including with those Felder Felder disco trousers. House of Holland’s metallic sheen was definitely to be commended though as bolts of cobalt appeared on the runways.
One of the top maxi trends that spanned back than that is the look of pleats. Wesaw a good amount appear on the fall and winter runways as well, seeing a good pattern there. It was Alessandro Michele who made the pleated midi skirt and lacy underwear combination so enticing and that is where we have continued onwards from. Pleats exist on just about every piece of fashion now and the frills are only one aspect of the pleats, so huge on the Milan runway.
We see them on Gucci quite a bit, with multiple layers of colorful goodness, Arthur Arbesser, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo and many more adding to the pleated fashion collections. We see side pleats appear at Jil Sander and barely there pleats spotted at 21 N.
We have always loved the leather jackets, the leather tops and skirts, but a long leather attire is something new and unusual to the catwalk. How can one get enough of leather anyway? It is very much a part of our fall needs and so when The Row gives us super long leather coats in brown or we see cropped leather tops under velvet suits at Phillip Lim. Leather skirts in black, falling to mid-calf, appear under oversized sweaters at Rag & Bone, the skin and its synthetic substitutes appearing time and again in different cuts and creations.
Leather was found on each collection that included a maxi dress, even on hoodies for a cleaner effect. Leather was spotted in synthetic, shinier forms on Mulberry, with high necks, ruffled front, long sleeves, and above the knee hems.
