What I like about this dress is that it has the illusion of being long, but it actually falls just above my knee. This means that, compared to a regular maxi, it doesn't swamp me in fabric and make me look too old. As I wrote in my previous post about the 70's, maxi dresses have made a huge comeback in the last couple of years, and although I don't pay much attention to trends when dressing myself, I was more or less dead on with this dress.
The dress, overall, has a nautical feel to it. The sort of Missoni style stripe pattern imitates the waves in an ocean, and the straps of a sort of sailor knot connecting it to the dress. In addition to this, the fabric is very light and easy, something easy to slip into for everyday wear.
