Spring/Summer 2011 Trend: The Maxi-Length

From floaty floral skirts to sheer revealing dresses, maxi-length has been making a return for the past few seasons and again showed up on the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalks reassuring us that it's a trend we can continue to wear long in to summer. As per usual each designer had their own take on the trend, from Givenchy's gothic inspired sheer dresses that conjured up a ghoulish idea of glamour, to Alexander Wang's all-white minimal approach which kept things remarkably simple.

Erdem used lace to construct his revealing floor-sweeping gown, while D&G showed off a wholly feminine dress covered in a subtle floral print. Marc Jacobs gave the trend his usual retro spin by pairing a pale pink skirt with a bellowing 70's style shirt in a light tangerine shade. Raf Simons, head designer at Jil Sander, managed to create some of the most unique silhouettes of the season with his floaty over-sized dresses, and he also included several acid-bright maxi-skirts in the statement collection, many paired with a simple white t-shirt. The maxi-length is continuing to be one of the main trends this season - check out how the designers presented it below.
