Fashion Crush: Ikat Maxi Dress

Tackle Spring fashion trends handily with this ikat print, maxi-length shirtdress.

We’ve seen a huge resurgence of the ikat [ee’-kat] print in home design goods, and now this eye-catching pattern has resurfaced in the fashion world. The 60’s inspired maxi length skirts and dresses are all over the marketplace this season. At the same time, the classic shirtdress has been revived with a fresh perspective. Somehow, this 3-in-1 (three trends in one piece) dress from Le Train Bleu doesn’t look overtly trendy. Instead it looks casual, chic, and on-trend. How’d they do that?

It has several winning features! The overall design is flattering and versatile. We can wear it on multiple occasions – from an outdoor dinner party, to a weekend stroll at an antiques fair, or to a casual day at the office on a hot summer day. In fact, its mixed color palette of blues and neutrals encourages us to wear this dress for several months throughout the year.

Plus, no need to worry about accidentally exposing ourselves. Thankfully, the skirt is lined. The dress has a detachable belt allowing us even more styling options. Optional sleeve tabs, too, prevent any fuss with keeping our sleeves rolled up all day long. Another fantastic feature we love is its price…$133 for a silk dress is a great deal! This ikat maxi dress is on-trend and a super duper find!
