My favorite time of year is Spring and Summer because of all the flowy and easy wear outfits you can wear, especially maxi dresses! Maxi outfits can be dressed up, casually, or really lazy wear by adding in some amazing accessories.

Although I am quite short in height, I able to manage wearing these floor-grazing pieces by bunching up part of the dress by the waist and pulling the fabric through a hair tie like a ponytail. I then ‘puff’ out the pulled through material so it looks like a mini-pin cushion on my size and it creates a great draping effect. Another way I pull the look together is by good ol’ hemming and/or throwing on a pair of 4-inch wedges!

I am all for having pieces that you can wear multiple ways so I can maximize the use of the dresses throughout the season. The maxi dresses that are making their way into my closet are from the online store, Venus.com. My picks include a majority of solid colors because I love to be able to mix and match different jewelry and accessories. On some days, I may feel very earthy and neutral with beige and black, on others I may feel bold with red and turquoise, and on other days feel very feminine and classy yet comfortable! But for the days I feel really fun and free, I reach for a bright and bold printed maxi! Check out the the easy of these maxis with very little accessories! Less is more for Maxis! Enjoy!
