Ask a CHIC Girl…From Randi:

Is it still worth buying Maxi dresses or have they become too trendy?  What are your thoughts on long skirts for daytime wear?

Yes, yes and yes!  Stylistas first took note of the Maxi dress last Summer, and to our extreme pleasure, these comfy yet CHIC dresses are back again this season and are becoming permanent fixtures in every CHIC girl’s closet.  With its easy glamour, the Maxi dress is the perfect ensemble for dinner at the beach or a Summer wedding.  They are also a smart alternative to the mini dress, which we all have so many of, and they will ease you into fall when paired with a leather jacket or tailored blazer!  The ever-alluring bohemian style has made a fierce return this year, and both Maxi dresses and long skirts are phenomenal pieces to exude this trend.  Like the Maxi dress, long skirts are appearing everywhere this Summer in haute hippie and floral prints, allowing women to express their feminine, romantic side.  Flowing, long skirts are a must have piece right now and are great for the day because they are so casual.  They also make awesome beach cover-ups AND can be dressed up with accessories and high wedges for night!  Definitely come to an Urban Chic store near you and scoop up these essentials!

    • First, snaps on picking out boyfriend jeans to wear this Summer – they are the “it” jean this season! Boyfriend jeans are meant to be comfortable with a relaxed fit so I love pairing them with a feminine look on top. A floral print top that hits just at the waistline is an awesome compliment to the boyfriend look, as well as a flowy blouse that can be tucked in. It’s key to remember that boyfriend jeans look the best when the waistband is showing. Also, be sure to roll the jeans up at the bottom so the cuff sits just above the ankle. If you have yet to buy your boyfriend jeans, Urban Chic is currently carrying the boyfriend style in the following brands – 7 for All Mankind, Current Elliot, Joe’s and Paige. Can’t wait to see you out in your new look!
      Xoxo,

    • Unfortunately, we no longer have this dress but we will be receiving the strapless version closer to the holidays. If you are still interested, please let us know, and we’d be happy to contact you upon its arrival to Urban Chic!

  1. I recently came across Shoshanna’s Tie Dye Twist One Shoulder Dress ($350) in People’s Style Magazine. Urban Chic was listed as the retailer to purchase the dress from. Is it possible to special order from one of your boutique locations, as I live in California and have not found the dress anywhere. I would appreciate any help you can provide.
