As soon as kids are out of school (or back from school) it seems like our wardrobes take on a more relaxed vibe. I, for one, am a big fan of the maxi dress. I bought my first one about 5 years ago and have slowly added one per season since then. I love the way they look on different figures, and they look equally great on women of all heights. My one pet peeve is if they are too short, or too long. Spend the extra money to get it hemmed if it’s too long and pass it up, if it’s too short! Here are a few styles that I LOVE:
Maxis are easy to wear with a cardigan or jean jacket over them, when it’s gets cool at night. They are also great for travel. All of the above styles are from Neiman Marcus online, but there are lots of styles out there that are very affordable. I just bought one at Loehmann’s for $50! I’d love to see pictures of your favorite maxi dresses if you want to send them along!
