Maxi dresses are an excellent choice of dress for literally any event – weddings, brunch dates, baby showers, Friday date night and can even make any normal work day special. They’re so easy to dress up or dress down, and you don’t have to worry about that awkward sunburn on your legs that you got last weekend… it’s hidden! Flowy dresses like the beloved maxi are sure to impress any crowd. Give it a cute pattern or a seasonal color and you’ve got yourself an Instagram-worthy look! They say history repeats itself… well, so does fashion! The full-length dresses we know probably originated in 1968, with a style created by Oscar de la Renta during an Elizabeth Arden show. The dress became a staple from that point, growing into the 70s with the bohemian style (think: hippy dresses), but died out by the end of that decade. Just like all good fashion trends, the maxi dress took a small fashion-dip. But, since around 2015 they’ve made quite the comeback in today’s fashion.
Dress it up or dress it down
If you’re looking for an “any time, any day style” the maxi dress is your best friend. Start with an adorable flowy floral maxi dress for a weekend brunch with the girls or throw on an eye-catching necklace with a sexy black maxi dress for a night out with the new boy. Full length dresses are also one of the few styles that will give you some extra warmth in a cold office, but still work when you take your lunch break out on the terrace. Casual outfits can be hard to find, but maxi dresses provide the versatility that some other dresses simply can’t. They’re so easy to style up or dress down that it’s hard not to “say yes to the maxi dress” ;-). At Freebird we have a collection of maxi dresses that are sure to meet the unspoken or unclear dresscode of any event (hate it when that happens…), with unique styles and patterns that set them apart from the rest.
