To the Max

For me, the maxi dress is another summer staple.  It's elegant and versatile.  Definitely a piece that can seamlessly go from casual to upscale depending on styling.  Usually all it takes is a maxi with a gorgeous pattern to make you look effortlessly chic.

Even though my style is pretty minimalistic as far as accessories go, I really love the drama of a great maxi dress.  I love the way I can make a great entrance in a maxi made of beautiful fabric and also make a dramatic exit with tons the fabric flowing behind me.


Maxis are flattering to all figures and help to hide any body imperfections you think you may have.  The one thing I usually do when wearing a maxi in the city, is tie it up in one corner when I'm wearing flats until I get to my destination.  Otherwise, the fabric sweeps up the dirt from the concrete and I always ended up with filthy feet at the end of the day.  The side knot at the bottom of the dress in transit, alleviates this problem.
