While some chatter lately suggests maxi dresses are so out this summer, I beg to differ. C'mon, Vanessa Hudgens was just spotted wearing one! When something is this comfy and cute at the same time, it's hard to resist, trend or no trend. My mom always wonders why I love them so much, and I have to remind her just how darn comfy they are - and perfect for warm weather. And what I LOVE about how Vanessa styled her dress (same one here) by daftbird ($123) is the black belt she added. It totally dresses up the look and makes it right on-trend, plus it makes the maxi dress that more flattering by giving her an actual waist. While gray mostly washes me out (ugh), I really heart the one here in navy, albeit with sandals a la Vanessa. What do you think?
P.S. Get the dress at saks.com! Other celeb fans of daftbird include Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson and Jessica Biel.
