Maximum Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are everywhere right now. 

I feel like spring and summer always bring the maxi dress. It is really such a joy to see them back. They are a great way to dress chic AND comfortably. I am always looking for polished looks for my downtime. The best thing about a maxi dress at the end of the day it is just one piece you put on and are done. You don’t have to worry about matching the top or making sure the colors work together. Simply put the dress on, add your favorite sandals, and you are good to go. They come in every color and level of dressiness and they are perfect for EVERY occasion.  I would check out Target. Old Navy, or Marshall’s/TJ Maxx. I wouldn’t consider a maxi dress as a closet staple but a fun indulgence when the weather changes so you don’t need to blow your money on a fancy one — unless you are planning on wearing it to an event. My pregnant girls (there are tons these days) and my moms on the go, these maxis should be calling your name! They work with the accessories you have — denim jackets, cardis, big jewelry, Toms, gladiators, ballet flats, and flips flops. They are great jumping off points to try new accessories or to dust off the old.

Here is a sampling of some of the best and most interesting I’ve seen.As well as two examples of how you might style a maxi dress — for a dinner out (thanks to my fabulous model/mom) or errands on the weekend.
