July’s must-have for women: The jersey maxi
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 19 JUL 2010 14:51 SPRING/SUMMERCOMMENTS
The latest maxi sub-trend to take hold is for jersey or tube styles. These are day dresses that hit the floor in the most fashionable way for the season.
Our go-to brand for the jersey maxi has to be Red Herring and we’re loving their striped versions. Another brand at debenhams.com in on the act is Oasis with their maxi vest and t-shirt dresses perfect for lazy summer days and festival dressing.
If you’re not that confident on the figure hugging styles then you could try something like the new Playtex shapewear styles which we are trialling in a selected number of Debenhams stores and on debenhams.com. They don’t launch officially until November 2010 so it’s your chance to get in there first and give them a whirl.
Personally, I wear my jersey dress with a loose, lace vest over the top so it doesn’t feel quite so figure-hugging. The jersey maxi dress is a versatile style that can be worn with little fitted jackets, waistcoats cropped cardigans and chunky belts. Endless outfit options and definitely something that will give you plenty of wear for your investment!
