Weekend Wear: 5 Ways to Wear A Maxi Dress this Summer.





Honestly, I believe the Maxi is one of the most casual chic outfits one can wear. It's so versatile and always has a level of style to it. I've already seen some girls wearing them as soon as the sun started coming out in May. Now that it's becoming warm outside the Maxi dress will be a must have all summer long. 


When I think of summer, I think of spending as much time as possible at the beach.
 A maxi dress can also be a great cover up. Just add a pair of sandals, an over the shoulder purse & you are set for a great day at the beach. 


Summer doesn't always mean warm days, especially if you live in Seattle. The weekend morning still can be a little chilly, so layer it up. An over-sized sweater that you can easily take off when the chilly morning burns out is the perfect way to dress for a weekend morning. 


The maxi dress is not just made for weekend errands. Summertime is full with of weekend events, switch out that morning sweater and add a fun jacket, such as a leather jacket and you're ready for any occasion.


 Just because the maxi dress covers a lot up, doesn't mean it can't be fun. Find a maxi that changes up the maxi look with a little bit of a wow factor.



Have fun with color. It's summer time and you need to rock out with colors that you normally dont touch during the colder months.


At the top of my must have list is this racer back from Monrow. Love the color, like that its a racer back and  it would be easy to dress it up and down for any weekend occasion.

I know what I'll be wearing this weekend.

Alix I got some love and hate for Maxi dresses. Love to own one, hate the fact hat you need to be 8 feet tall in order to wear one!

I actually just found the first one EVER that I can wear without dragging 2 inches of fabric on the ground. : )

What do you think? Know any places that cater to shorties?

Wonderful suggestions. I love maxi dresses. They are lovely. I think wearing them with a tough jacket is a great way to go.
