  • Sex and the City 2 Top Fashion Trend is the Maxi Dress. Here’s how to wear it

    How to wear a maxi dress and not look like you ran out of the house in your nightgownoriginalOk, “Sex and the City” fans, I’m not saying that you should show up at the movie theater this Friday dolled up as your favorite SATC character, but I know some of you will (again).Think of this as purely fashion tips to get the look right, and if it happens to be the hottest summer fashion trend to emerge out of SATC2, so be it.In an interview on E!, Sarah Jessica Parker said that the long, maxi dress, or Desert Chic as she called it, would be the HOT “Sex and the City 2″ fashion trend replacement for the ubiquitous gladiator sandals that are still loitering in some closets 2 years after the first SATC movie.It’s no coincidence that as Creative Director for the Halston Heritage label, the secondary archival collection from Halston, Sarah Jessica Parker is flaunting many of her designs in the movie thus making it a click-to-buy extravaganza and almost as heady as a night at Studio 54 where, no doubt, many of those floaty looks first grazed a dance floor.shop_productOne of the most featured maxi dresses from the movie is the Halston Heritage Iconic Pleated Long Dress in Orange, pictured left and above, on SJP for the film and on a look-a-like model and available at Singer 22. The flouncy dress has a decidedly disco feel to it, which may be a bit much for the day.>> READ: Sarah Jessica Parker + Sex and the City 2 = 80′s RewindlargeI’ve always been a fan of maxi dresses to beat the summer heat. Particularly more peasant or ethnic styles that are light and breezy in hot weather yet far more glam–yet still casual– than wearing a pair of shorts or a summer skirt.

If there had to be one major investment trend piece for my wardrobe this season, I would be hard-pressed not to consider the drop-crotch, harem jumpsuit by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy that Juliette Binoche absolutely rocked in Cannes this week.Drop crotch, harem pants are by far a hard look to pull off but she did so flawlessly. There’s always the fear of resembling Diaper Dan or one of those hippie tourists who snooze outside the museums in Europe in stretched out harem pants and dreadlocks.But when worn right, the look is amazing!original>> READ: How to wear a jumpsuit like Padma Lakshmi
