Maxi vs. Mini


Recently, I’ve been struck with the dichotomy in dress length in my Salemails — short short minis or to-the-ground maxi dresses.

Each has its merits…

The Mini: Shows off sexy legs, great for shorter gals (no alterations!), can sometimes be worn across seasons with either tights/boots or flats/strappy heels, depending on the fabric and style of course

The Maxi: Definitely on trend (check out the celeb looks below!), as The LookBook says “I can wear it with flats or heels and don’t really have to shave my legs. Love it!”, comfortable as can be!

Here are some pics from a great post today on The LookBook (one of our Trendsetters!) — celeb looks and maxis for under $150. See more here!
