One of my favourite things when Summer comes around is that I can legitimately wear a long dress without feeling overdressed. At no other time of year can you really get away with wearing a floor length dress casually in the day.
Your only real option at all is for a Christmas Party and even then, coupled with the heels and several glasses of wine it can prove to be a bit complicated!
The great thing about the Maxi dress is its informal, hippy vibe. You can dress it down for a picnic at the local park with a jean jacket and converse. Or you can dress it up with sparkly sandles and a blazer for a Summer party or lunch date.
I have quite a few Maxi dresses in my wardrobe and I add to them every year. I really like bold prints and pastel colours. One of my favourites which I’ve had for a few years has a layered midriff and a floaty base line.
Recently though Maxi dresses with long sleeves have become quite popular and I really like them. Whether they are in a Kimono or Grecian style.
