The maxi-dress trend has become mainstream enough that it can be found at Target, which is where Nicole Johnson, 27, a bottle server who lives in Bucktown, bought her purple maxi-skirt. Shopping in Bucktown recently, she paired the skirt with an American Eagle "Love" T-shirt -- "a pajama top, actually" -- her bag in a Mexican poncho stripe. For her, the hippie look isn't just a passing trend. "I usually dress very bohemian, very '60s. It's my personality."
