The Dress for Summer

Casual yet elegant.

By Leigh Williams

I don’t know about you, but right around this time of year, I start living in dresses! They’re easy, comfortable, and super versatile. There’s a style for every occasion – and my favorite style is the maxi dress. It’s flowy, casual yet elegant, and oh, so easy to wear. Here are my favorite ways to wear a maxi for summer:

- A tiered maxi, rattan sandals, and a straw bag will have you feeling boho-chic instantly. Choose this combo for a brunch outing or any other casual setting.

- A sleek maxi and strappy heels will have you feeling fierce. Perfect for a summer night out with the girls.

- A maxi shirt dress is perfect for the office. Pair it with closed toe sandals during the day – and switch into slide sandals for happy hour.

- A floral maxi will serve you well, no matter the occasion! Finish off the look with a simple pair of sandals and you’ll be ready for any outing in an instant.

And there you have it – my favorite ways to style a maxi for summer! Try these styles out and you’ll be looking (and feeling) great all season long.
