Get the Max From Your Maxi

Are you planning on rocking maxi dresses this summer? Here are a few tips on wearing this style and a few of my favorite maxi dresses on the market this season.

These are all great tips! I just bought my first maxi dress. I layered a slightly sheer hoodie over mine and belted the whole thing. - Kat

You are making me dream with those dresses. I don't need this temptation, I am talking about dress #1, 4 and 5.
Loved them.
That tan dress is stunning, love it as well.
Wow, great picks.
Have a happy holiday.

I especially like the Topshop ones :)

Raquelita said...

I love that ModCloth Maxi, but I'm holding strong with my shopping ban, so I'll have to make do with the one Maxi dress currently in my closet.

Bonnie said...

That Asos dress with the embellished neck is my favorites.
If I wore maxi dresses, I would use all of your guidelines because you are an absolute genius.
But I don't.
Because they look stupid on me.
Trust me, I have tried them on.
Sad day.

Great tips...this post really shows how versatile a maxi dress is! I'm now lusting over that yellow dress in the first set.

I am loving maxis and even though I'm short I plan on rocking them! I love them with wedges or a blazer like you suggested. Good luck with the move- I'm helping a good friend move (not my fave thing to do!)

I'm totally going to have to rock a maxi with a blazer work! I got a striped one recently, and i've yet to style it.

Good luck with your move!

I LOVE the idea of a blazer with a maxi dress! Thanks for the tip. Thanks for the comment on my last post. That is the only romper I own and it took a lot of courage for me to buy it. It has a decent length.
