Make your Maxi Extraordinary by Going Boho
Boho maxi dress was just a random thought of style from high fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta, when created an ankle-length dress for Elizabeth Arden Salon in the 1960s. Soon other designers such as Dior, YSL, Biba, Cardin, and Halston, among others, jumped into that style.
Maxi-length skirts soon overcame mini skirt in the year 1967. But by the year 1980’s, Maxi Dress was taken over by shoulder pads ad playsuits. Come 90’s grunge and mini skirt ruled.
Good thing come 2008, maxi dress made a comeback through Kate Moss. It was when she wore a maxi dress in Lauren Wood’s wedding. Maxi dresses then were cut slightly above the ankle. But come 2010, maxi dresses hemlines were dropping to the ground and are being sold in every store.
