Coming back yet again from last summer is the effortless maxi dress. This dress is so versatile in its look so anyone with any style can wear it! The dress is capable of accomplishing a relaxed style, as well as a polished look with simple elegance. Maxi dresses come in quite a variety of materials and patterns, yet they are extremely comfortable! They are perfect for during the day
when you are out and about. They also look great at night for a dinner date during cool or warm summer
weather. Maxi dresses provide a little extra elegance to your style. You can wear a simple patterned strapless cotton style as a cute beach cover-up or you can find a black silky maxi and dress it up with jewelry and heels for a night on the town! Since the dress is longer and bolder, it is important to accessorize correctly. If the maxi dress has a bold pattern, stick to simple jewelry and simple shoes, such as bangles and flats. A monotone maxi dress allows you to accessorize to the max with perhaps bold statement jewelry or fun, colorful heels. Long necklaces and chunky bracelets look great against a solid color maxi. If you decide to wear a maxi dress on a cooler summer day or night, don’t be afraid to pair the dress with a fun scarf or even a cute jacket or sweater. The mix of materials against the long canvas will look great and effortless.
Also, keep your eye out for the trending high-low hem on maxi dresses. Similar to the long hem of a maxi, this hemline is short in the front and long in the back. Look for some killer heels to pair with the short hemline in the front. The high-low hem trend is also being seen with maxi skirts as well. Make sure you pair a patterned high-low skirt with a simple top. A simple regular, long maxi skirt also looks great with your bikini as a cover-up on a beach getaway. The maxi skirt gives off a cool and tropical vibe to your swimsuit. Overall for this summer, the maxi is a must!
