Maxi dresses are becoming the definition of summer. When the style first came out, I was a little hesitant because I wasn’t sure if I could pull one off. I decided to take a leap of faith and I’m so glad I did! Maxi dresses have instantly become a summer staple for me, and I feel like I can wear them just about anywhere. They are so perfect for a casual weekend running errands, a backyard party, a day at the beach, or just about any other summer activity! Since I spend most of my day in business casual clothes for work, I’ve been trying my best to not change directly to pjs when I get back and utilize my summer warddrobe as much as I can. I wore my first, and absolute favorite maxi dress this weekend, and I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you!
The best part about this dress is how it has an inner lining that cuts off just above the knee. The remaining length is sheer with a slit down the left side. The back is also open and has a tie close. I feel like all of these elements make it dressier which adds to its versatility. The tie close may seem tricky because it isn’t wide enough to cover a strap underneath, but an easy fix is pairing it with a bandeau of any color. This way you don’t have to worry about what to wear inside, and you can add a little something to the outfit. The biggest highlight of this dress for me is the adorable floral print. Can it be any more summer?
