Summer's Most Swoon-Worthy Maxi Dresses
July 17, 2018

When the weather starts to warm up, clothing that sticks and restricts is definitely the last thing you want to wear. Instead, give your minis a break in favor of one of our favorite summer staples: billowy maxi dresses. These floor-grazing silhouettes are what we most look forward to when temps begin to rise because of how airy, versatile, and flattering they are. Keep reading for three different comfort-meets-chic ways to style your maxi dress. 

Kimono Maxi Dress for Women

Sweet and easy

If you’re looking to keep your ensemble casual, opt for an ankle-length maxi with a front slit. Not only does this functional design make it easier to walk, but it’s perfect for showing off your cute shoes. Add a bit of structure with a classic denim jacket in a lighter hue on top, making sure to roll the cuffs for a more relaxed vibe. 

Fuss-free elegance

A cotton sundress is great for beating the heat, and this one has us swooning with its attention-grabbing tiers, tassels, and intricate detailing. The key to wearing a statement maxi is to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Pair your dress with platform sandals to prevent it from touching the ground and a coordinating bag to bring it all together.

Soft in color and fluid in shape, a delicately ruffled maxi is perfect for more formal occasions. Complement the romantic feel of the dress with heeled sandals, then play up the charm with a pastel colored bag and matte gold accessories.
