More from Your Maxi- Lily Collins Modern Maxi Dress

The dress’ hybrid capelet shape lent the piece’s faded digital print a sophisticated and even unexpected dose of elegance while keeping the young starlet age-appropriately covered up and all the more inspiring for it.
We suggest you take a cue from Collins and shop for maxi’s that evoke a subtle change in direction when it comes to silhouette as there’s nothing more banal and blatantly boring than your average plain jane tank maxi dress. – Naveed Hussain
