Today is the first day of May (Happy May Day) and that means summer is almost here. Temperatures are getting higher, the sun is shining brighter, and the stores are full of amazing warm weather fashions. Once again, the Maxi is ruling the dress selections. Sexy, free-flowing, comfortable, and multi-functional, these dresses are the perfect staple for summer fun. The Maxi will take you to the beach, dinner, and everything in between. Here are some wonderful options in various price ranges. I know there’s one for you!
Mossimo Hi-Lo halter maxi dress $27.99
both available at Target
I love both of these dresses. They are the perfect beach cover-up or for running errands.
Floral maxi $39.50 available at Delia’s
A lovely print at an affordable price. What’s not to love?
Sparkle and Fade pleated empire maxi $49.99 available at Urban Outfitters
A very sexy option for a night out. I love the pleated skirt and empire top.
Smocked-gauze Mexicali maxi $24.94
all available at Old Navy
These are three of my favorites, especially the orange one. This is what I think a maxi should be-great colors, flowing bodies, and super summery.
Ruffled maxi $69.50
both available at Victoria’s Secret
What I love about the two of these is the bohemian feel they have. They appeal to the hippy in me.
One World sleeveless printed maxi $78 available at Macy’s
This one is so adorable and peasanty. I love the print!!
Felicity and CoCo chevron print jersey maxi $78 available at Nordstrom
I can picture this on a boardwalk with a straw hat. I love summer….
Stripe button front maxi $89
both available at Arden B.
Both of these could be worn to work.
I always thought I was too short to wear a maxi, but there’s nothing a good tailor can’t do. A little hemming and I have a fabulous go-to dress for everything summer throws at me.
