I’ve been extolling the virtues of a summer maxi frock for a quite a few years now.
I believe there are two reasons why the maxi dress endures.
1. You do not need to shave your legs to wear it.
2. You can wear it with flat sandals and still look dressed up.
Two very good reasons, don’t you think?
Queensland-based label Verily has been offering up maxi frocks for as long as I’ve been championing them.
Designer Leonie Macleod just knows how to cut a pattern to fit and flatter all shapes and sizes of women.
She also knows that the key to a woman’s wardrobe is creating easy-t0-wear clothes that don’t need ironing.
This maxi dress very much falls into that category – it’s in a fine jersey and in a design that helps create a waist where some of us might be lacking.
I’m in love with the colour and the geometric print – which offers more than a nod to 1970s style when the maxi dress really did reign supreme … pass the Jatz and corn relish dip while I show you the dress on the model.
Verily Mint Maxi $99
Style tip: the ideal maxi dress is one that does not have too much fabric. Opt for streamlined shapes to avoid tent-like proportions.
Would I find maxi dresses in your summer wardrobe?
