The Maxi Dress

I’m beginning to think I’m a fashion hermit. All the fatshion blogs (example) are talking about the ‘return of the maxi dress’.

Well….pardon me…but didn’t it return LAST SUMMER?? As far as summer wear goes, the maxi dress has been back for a while now. Granted most people were probably not wearing it through the Northern Hemisphere winter, but it was all over the place last summer. Oh, and the year before. Not to mention the avalanche of posts on fatshionista lj.

This is not a phenomenon limited to maxi dresses, but it always makes me cringe when the phrase ‘is back!’ is used for a piece that even trendy people haven’t stopped wearing yet. I know fashion moves fast, but that’s ridiculous.
