While driving into Oak Bluffs for ice cream last evening, we spied a gaggle of young women wearing maxi dresses. My mother commented that she just doesn’t understand the appeal of the ankle-grazing trend. I realized that I first posted on the popularity of long-for-day five years ago, yet, I haven’t embraced it myself.
I like a maxi silhouette when it’s done right; not sure why I haven’t bought one. I don’t think it’s an age or height issue. Thoughts?
