As ever Roberto Cavalli's latest ready to wear collection (due S/S 2011) did not disappoint. An entire show of gorgeous, opulent maxi dresses with an array of different prints particularly python & leopard print. Cavalli kept to hisglamorous roots with risque cut out sections and extravagant fringing and oversized satchel bags.
Expect to see lots of high street versions hitting stores in the Spring!
Don't forget, there can be a style of maxi dress to suit any shape:
Boyish / athletic figures should avoid high neck maxi's and instead go for elaborate embellishments or detailing across the bust area.
Curvy ladies should stick to darker block colours and go for low neck lines to highlight the cleavage.
Petite and slim ladies should use thin belts to sinch in the waist and prevent the dress overtaking your frame.
