Every year there is that 'it dress' that the fashion world focuses on. 2 years ago lace dresses were the most popular style, last year wrap around dresses started to gain attention and this year? This year is all about spots and stripes. This is the summer dress of 2018. The dress which you're going to see plastered all over Instagram, online-stores and everybody will be wearing: printed maxi dresses. Although polka dots and stripes are trendy right now there are many other styles of printed maxi dresses which are going to popular in 2018. Personally, I couldn't decide whether I preferred spots or stripes so I chose both! I found a dress from Mango which combined two of the trends from 2018 which I love and i'm sure I will be wearing it all summer long.

Maxi dress with stripes
If I really had to choose between stripes or dots, I'd pick stripes! Stripes are a classic style and remind me of classy Paris. I think this is especially true with maxi dress with stripes that will take over our Instagram feed this season. As linen dresses become increasingly more popular I think we're going to see a lot of this combo in some pretty summer colors such as yellow and blue which are fashionable this year. Wear a stripey dress with a pair of espadrilles or sneakers and a straw bag.
