I think we all have at least one maxi dress in our closet. I wouldn’t call it a staple, but it is popular in the hot summer months as a means of keeping you cool, yet stylish. It’s so tempting to wear maxi dresses with just some flip flops but they can definitely be more chic than that. You can rock them with a blazer, chunky necklace, and so much more. Need some styling tips? You know I got you!!
Night on the Town
Please don’t be fooled, maxi dresses can be elegant and classy. They can be worn for a night out on the town with a blazer and some platforms, OR for a red carpet event. I LOVE prints so instead of choosing a plain colored blazer to divafy this look, I opted for polka dots. You should wear whatever you feel best compliments your style.

This look is FULL of color, just the way I like it. It incorporates one of my favorite trends, color blocking and like many outfits, you have the opportunity to add hair accessories. Alternatively, you can throw on some wedges or other heels, or put on a blazer and turn this outfit into a nighttime look.
Sometimes, you want to be super chill, but still look like you put a little work into your outfit. Try pairing a maxi with a denim vest and a cute across the body bag. You can wear this outfit to the mall, a cookout, and other summer events and can even throw on your favorite pair of sunnies.
Also, if you would prefer wearing maxi skirts, you can rock those as well. I personally prefer maxi skirts. Here are two of my favorites:
