I can't see any disadvantage: they look effortlessly cool even without accessories, there's NO issues with flashing, and they flatter everyone!
Here are some of my favourite looks on celebrities:
I do love a bit of tie-dye, and these maxi dress looks cool and summery, and suits Lauren and Vanessa's petite frames. Simple, wavy hair and a pendant necklace emphasize the simplicity of the look.
Hayden Panettiere proves that maxi dresses can suit short girls! Plain gladiators make for a casual, relaxed outfit.
The paisley print and long sleeves make for a 70s style hippy dress, with a waist tie to add definition.
However us normal people can also get a piece of the action, for a fraction of the price:
I love the Hawaiian-style print on this dress from Topshop for a very reasonable £30!
This is a sleek, pretty design: I love the lace detail around the neckline. From Oasis at Asos, £50.
Another Oasis creation,with a 70s look similar to Nicole Richie's style. I love the bluey-purple colour scheme, so I will definitely be picking this up the second I have £80 to spare :o
