Long or short?

Last year it was all about mini-dresses, now (although minis are still okay and not gone) long dresses are getting really popular among the celebrities. They are very fresh looking and perfect for summer/spring. Of course, you can also wear them when it's not very hot, like keira did by adding a cardigan.

Gwen Stefani, Keira Knightley, Nicole Richie & Rachel Bilson

For an everyday look, here you have some (kind of cheap) options to achieve that relaxed look:

Keira rocked it the best in my opinion. Her accessories make it pop. I love maxis, but I think they're hard to pull off and sometimes can look a bit cheap...

I don't really like the dress Rachel is wearing. Kind of gives me the feeling that's she's wearing it because it's an it item. Gwen and Keira on the other hand rock the dress!

Great post! I want a dress just like rachel bilsons, it's fantastic!

We had this tred back in 2006 in Brazil, I had always seen women wearing it with flats like the ones from the pics u posted, and then seeing some bloggers, street style people wearing it with heels, boots (!!!), wedges and other sort of non-flat summer sandals look a little funny. But oh well, aren't rules made to be broken?:)

I agree with u though, the laid-back look is achieved by these sandals.

i love long dresses, and nicole's is amazing

Angie dijo...

Long dresses are so flattering, specially those with empire waists, they elongate the figure - not to mention they look so classy...I wish I could wear them but it's way too cold right now =(

kirsty dijo...

i'm not sure why but i don't really like maxi dresses. they are growing on me slightly, but in my opinion (probably because our summers are crap) - when it is sunny show off as much leg as possible and get as much sun as possible! don't cover up in a long dress!!!

e.jay dijo...

No matter how popular long dresses are in summer...when that season comes around my favorite accessories are my legs, and I want the world to see them!

Jimena dijo...

Gracias por el comentario absolutamente adorable.

El atuendo de Keira aqui me encanta, es mi estilo favorito para el verano.

Pues... siempre me gustaron mucho los vestidos largos, pero los usé toda la vida. Tenía un trauma con mis piernas delgadas en exceso y nunca usaba una falda que mostrara si quiera mis tobillos. Habiendo descubierto la maravilla de las piernas muy pero muy recientemente... creo que no me animo a ocultarlas aun!

Jimena dijo...

lamentablemente he tenido que poner mi blog en hold pues mi camara de fotos parece haber decidido rebelarse drasticamente.

te mantendre informada cuando vuelva, que pienso hacerlo!

queria volver a preguntarte algo que ya te habia preguntado con anterioridad, donde compraste esas zapatillas blancas? estoy en una busqueda interminable por ellas... y nada! de nada!

besos, hasta pronto.

iñaki dijo...

I really love when you do these kind of posts! :)
It's hard to pull off a long dress, I have to say. Even more being as short as rachel. But she does!

That Girl dijo...

Love the maxi's
and the urban shoes are by far the best.

Top shops alittle hard to get to in my area code.

I love those maxi dresses! I wish I was a wee bit taller though (I'm under five feet) so, I could look somewhat decent wearing them! :)

angeline dijo...

those topshop ones are the best!
