When the weather starts to heat up during the long days of summer, a natural inclination you might have is to wear lighter-weight, more revealing clothing. But, for the days you aren’t in the mood to show off those gams of yours, the good news is, there’s a fabulous alternative to short dresses and skirts. This season, a popular summer style is the ultra-feminine maxi dress.
Summer Style – Maxi Dresses
Created from airy chiffon fabrics to body-skimming jersey materials, maxi dresses come in a wide range of designs, prints, and styles. They can be worn virtually anywhere, from the beach to a party. In addition to being figure-flattering, the best part is – they keep you feeling cool (on hot days) and covered (from the sun’s scorching rays).
How To Wear A Maxi Dress In The Day
When you want to have a casual, laid-back look (perfect for daytime summer activities), pair a cotton crochet maxi dress with flat leather sandals and a sporty, multi-stripe, colorful bag.
How To Wear A Maxi Dress In The Evening
For those balmy summer evenings, turn up the heat by coordinating sexy, multi-strap heeled sandals (in a vibrant hue) with a bold gold statement necklace and a goddess-worthy, halter-neckline maxi dress in an elegant material (like silk).
