Style Focus: Summer Maxi Dresses

by | Style

Last spring I shared How to Wear a Maxi Dress at Any Height and wanted to share my favorite summer maxi dresses.  Dresses are my go-to way to dress for any occasion and a maxi dress can be casual or dressed up.

Green Halter Maxi Dress / Navy Wedges / Alicia Earrings with Lapis Charm / Minnie and Helena Bracelets / Ikat Tablecloth / Wicker Placemat / Faux Bamboo Flatware / Berry and Thread Melamine Dinner Plate / Isabella Acrylic Tumbler / Ikat Napkin / Bamboo Napkin Ring / Large Blue and White Jar Centerpiece (30% off!) / Smaller Blue and White containers (also on sale) / Dining Chairs / Similar Table (All outdoor details can be found here and here)

This green maxi that I featured in the Elegant Summer Tablescape post and Summer Sangria has been a reader favorite.  I can’t believe it is available in all sizes still!  The shirtdress halter style is so flattering.  I’m 5’2″ with these wedges on so you can see how it has plenty of length for you tall gals!  Do size up on as it is slim in the bust area thought.  I usually wear an XS in Tuckernuck and this is a S.

Pink Floral Dress / Woven Clutch (on sale!) / Alicia Necklace in Gold with Baroque Pearl / Alicia Earring in Gold with Baroque Pearl / Classic Hazen Stack /

Another favorite has been this pink maxi from Misa.  I adore this brand!  I wore this blue and white beauty for our anniversary dinner at home.  You all loved this short dress I shared in Instagram a few weeks ago.  It even made Reader Top 25 in 3 days!  I wore this pink floral on a date night recently to our club. We’ve actually only been three places since we’ve been staying safer at home.  They’ve all been very good experiences and following all the rules!  Anyway back to this dress!  I wore it when I shared my Jewelry Collection from Hazen & Co. and received a lot of questions.  I wear an XS in this brand.

Whether it’s strapless, smocked, ruffled, tailored, striped, a simple shirtdress or even a simple Tshirt dress, you can’t go wrong with this easy breezy style.  I’ve shared some of my favorites in a boutique below.  Let me know your favorite in the comments below!
