Maxi Dress, Minimal Effort: 20 Easy, Breezy Summer Finds
Come Summer, the maxi serves two mega-important purposes: keeping us covered and preventing the awful sweaty feeling of jeans, but all long dresses are not created equal. The simple top and t-shirt styles always manage to cling in all the wrong places and are too casual for anything more than running errands. So now that hot weather is here to stay, we're putting our foot down. It's time for a maxi dress reformation.
Sure, your outfit will still be effortless (read: no mixing and matching necessary), but this year, the floor-dusting style has an unexpected bohemian flair that elevates it from its simple past. Tight bodices and flowing skirts come together in a magical combination that is both flattering and comfortable — yes, you can bid sticky Summer legs behind. And the best part? These styles are the opposite of the basic maxis you've seen before; they're bright enough for brunch or even the office, but add a pair of high heels, and you can hit any party ready to impress. Read on for our 20 favourite finds that will convince you to ditch the boring maxis of the past for these breezy bohemian styles instead.
