History of Long Dresses for Summer
Long dresses for summer also known as max dresses have been popular for at least the last decade, but do you know when these dresses came into vogue? The fashion industry saw the first sign of the maxi dress around 1968 and designers like Oscar de La Renta and Dior caught on quickly. The popular film Doctor Zhivago sported maxi dresses and helped push the style into the forefront. It wasn't long until London began going crazy for the maxi dress trend. Unlike today, maxi dresses were lacey and a little shorter than ankle length back when they first appeared.
Currently, we equate maxi dresses with long dresses for summer that won't show off too much skin, but are still chic. They can be made out of jersey or chiffon for a more classy look. Whatever your summer style, maxi dresses are definitely a staple.
