This year the maxi dress has taken over runways and made its way to countless retailers. With flowing comfortability and the ability to easily go from day to night, the maxi dress is a great summertime staple. Styles from the 1960's with bright, bold floral patterns and the 1970's natural, earthy fashion are both quite popular. The maxi dress merges a casual look with something a bit more dressy. Its long, flowing skirt feels breezy and comfortable, while an open back and shoulders show the perfect amount of skin for a hot summer day. An ideal daytime beach outfit quickly transforms with a pair of cute wedges and chunky jewelry into the perfect dinner date or wedding ensemble. The maxi dress also complements all different body types and sizes. Choose a vertical pattern to elongate and look long and lean. Colorful psychedelic designs add fun and spice up any summertime activity!
