The origins of the fashion maxi print is probably due to the sixties pop culture. Bold, brash and sometimes bizarre color combinations were meant to express the artistic exposures of the day. The maxi dress became a popular concept and was adopted by the free love culture all the way to suburban housewives. Some of these creations were flowing images of beauty, however, there were, some moments of the fashion past that needed to be forgotten and advice to everyone to not repeat them again.
The right maxi can be a fashion delight. The color combination, pattern and motif needs to be one that accents your personal color palette. It can be a perfect grab and go item that needs only minor accessories and still makes you look fabulous. The choice of the wrong maxi can be a disaster for you personally and due to its length make you look more akin to a circus tent or street advertisement than the fashion statement that you wanted.
