A trend to keep: the Maxi-Dress

As opposed to last years mini length this summer maxi dress was on everyone's mind, both loved and hated. First maxi dresses appeared in major spring/summer 2008 collections and then they were seen on all "it" girls of the moment. While a one-color dress looks too occasion wear or beachwear (if it's jersey), a printed maxi-dress is the easiest way to an elegant look for daywear. Romantic, flowing, printed long-dresses seems to be this summer's hit and not only.

Bohemian Summer

Inspired by the 60s and the 70s fashions, boho style (bohemian) has returned and looks more chic than ever. Boho-chic style keeps main hippie features: ethnic influences, DIY looks (tie-dye and patchwork), raw fabrics and materials (canvas, straw, wood) mixing them with heirloom pieces like lace dresses, embroidered linen blouses and crochet shawls, vintage men's hats, shoes and belts but also with glam and modern accessories like the latest "it" bag or the ultimate pair of shoes, metallic sparkles or fancy jewelry.

Sunglasses: a fashion statement

Spring/summer 2008 collections showed how important sunglasses have become. I'm sure that, as a true fashionista, you know what fashion accessories can do to improve one's personal style.

And sunglasses have their own share, especially in summer season. It's easy to go wrong, too; wearing a sporty-wrap sunglasses to a lady-like outfit is not good. Just like the shoes and the handbag, a pair of sunglasses must be coordinated with the style of your outfit.
