It’s most popular trend of spring ’09 and as you’d exepct, Swell’s gotcha covered. The maxi dress has become a celebrity’s style choice for everything from red carpet events to quick trips to the grocery store. Their unbelievable comfort and uncanny ability of looking great on just about any body type give them an almost unfair advantage over soon-to-be-forgotten mini dresses and skirts. The maxi can be worn casually during the day or dressed up with key accessories for nighttime affairs. Don’t be afraid to take the plunge—this trend is worth the risk!
Whitney Port’s “The City” has stolen the spotlight in reality TV and her number one fans, no doubt, love her for her clothes. The Queen of Vintage isn’t afraid to take risks when it comes to fashion. Her outfits are eclectic but always put together. We recreated her easy-breezy look with the Billabong Juliet Dress—one of the sweetest petal pushers spring 09′ has to offer. This innocent, ditsy floral print dress features an offset ruffle detail down the front, adjustable spaghetti straps, and an elastic waist that sits high on the hips. Pair it with some slinky metalic sandals, a red leather bag and some dramatic oversize shades, and you’ll see that spring is definitely in bloom.
Big events are fun, sure, but finding something to wear can be more of a challenge. New Years Eve is right around the corner and, of course, my focus is finding something to wear. Naturally, I began my search at Swell.com and ended my search at Swell.com. I thought it would be a bit more difficult to find an occasion dress at a surf shop, but the selection of dresses and accessories was impressive. Once again I found an outfit that stayed true to my surf roots while allowing me to step out of my flip flops and jeans for a special night.
