With summer heat in full swing, maxi dresses are a must!! They are light weight, no sleeve and create a free feeling with it’s long flow! Whether you are running out to grab your back to school must haves, can’t believe I just wrote that, or if you need a quick cover-up for the beach it is a wonder dress!!
Being 5’2″ some maxi dresses are a little long. A trick to fix this is to knot them on the side. This is a quick way to hem without having to pull out the sewing machine!! It creates a sense of style and a wonderful shape to the dress! Check out this Target Pink Maxi is a perfect length, color and shape!!
Some maxi dresses are fun to add two nots…one on the right and left. This way it lifts the front a bit and the back. This patch work dress was a favorite find at Zanna’s. Check out the Patch work dress at Walmart. Pair it with a dollar tree bandana to create a boho chic look!
Maxi dresses are loose and give plenty of room to move in. Like when you are picking red raspberries, a fav!! Find a color in the print then add accessories in that color to match head to toe.
Popping prints and colors in a Maxi is my favorite find. The flowers in the Gap maxi dress below is an oldie but a goodie!! The light weight cotton and stretch made it a wonderful pairing while dancing on the mountain tops of Massachusetts. The color and pattern in this J.Crew maxi dress is so FABULOUS and what a pairing to transition from summer to fall!!!
When the heat and humidity are unbearable put your maxi dress on, match some fun accessories with color and BAM your glam!
