Maxi dresses came into height between late 2008 to early 2009, after countless celebrities were seen fashioning the long piece. Since then, it has become a staple in every woman’s closet.
The long dress or the maxi is nothing new. But with more flattering silhouettes available, it rose to fame quickly, giving birth to a cult following comparable to that of gladiator sandals.

Of course, there is a line drawn between a maxi and a formal gown. The formal gown uses a more special fabric, is usually (though not always) embellished with beads and crystals, and is more formal in appearance compared to the maxi. In most cases, the maxi is used as a day dress, as a beach dress, or as a cover up.

There are however, certain maxis that are versatile enough to cross over and look formal with just a change in accessories. These are the plain or solid colored maxi dresses that come in classic cuts and soft, drapy, fluid fabrics such as jersey.
