I Love Maxi Dresses

My favorite articles of clothing to wear during the warmer weather are maxi dresses. I like the ones that are form fitting at the top, very long, and flowing almost touching the ground with or without footwear. These dresses create instant glamour and leaner look and are great coverage for problems areas below the waist. They are also sophisticated, comfortable, and with the right fit are flattering on most body types, shapes, and sizes. They come in a variety of colors, prints, and style including tube tops, spaghetti straps, halter, and blouse bodice.

I think there is nothing more casual and elegant than a maxi dress. It can go from day to night by adding just the right accessories and sandals. When accessorizing, pair it with earrings or bracelets, skip the necklace, and remember sandals such as gladiator, comfortable wedge, flips flops and espadrilles looks fabulous with maxi dresses and are complementary. I am always on the hunt for unique and affordable maxi dresses. I found these vintage maxis at a thrift store in Chicago years ago with an intention to sell, and they are available for purchase at my store in the Vintage and Retro Chic categories or click on the links below.
