Spring Must-Have: Boho Maxis (Inspired by Nicole Richie)

A beautiful, boho maxi dress is an absolute must for spring and summer, it’s fun, wearable, and super flattering. No gal knows how to pull off this trend quite like Nicole Richie , who is always a go-to fashion muse! Nicole isn’t afraid to run with a motif and her looks always have a strong 70s-inspired, hippie-chic feel. She tends to favor vintage maxis, but there are plenty of current styles that are equally fabulous.

A boho maxi isn’t season-specific and can be work in the cooler months with the addition of a chunky knit, sharp blazer, or cropped leather jacket as seen on Nicole above. You can style your look to summon the seventies like Nicole, give it a modern twist by adding in some statement pieces, toughen up this laid back style with some edgy add-ons, and so on. As is the case with any trend, be sure to wear it in a way that works for you and stays true to your personal style.

I’m obsessed with maxi dresses I’ve actually wrote a post on my blog about it, and nicole is perfect for it , the foley&corinna is so pretty!!

These dresses DEFINITELY work on any body type! The most flattering shapes are v-neck cuts with empire waists, you truly can’t go wrong there! Also, wear your maxi with a pair of wedges of platforms for an instant long and lean effect. I will definitely be doing a lot of ‘Dressing for your body type’ articles in the future so stay tuned : )

*thanks for the add on Twitter! your site looks gorgeous.

i wonder if this will work on any body type? i suppose a lot has to do with the style & shape of the top half. either way, they look super comfortable!

I love maxi dresses. The style is chic and feminine. I can’t wait until it is warm enough to wear a maxi dress without any cover ups. So effortless and gorgeous!
