The Secret to Transitioning: The Maxi Dress

Let's be honest, sometimes it is hard to decide what to wear when we are experiencing a new season: Sprinter. Also known as spring with a hint of winter. One day, you are layering with a cardigan or jacket, and the next day, you are reaching for your sandals. So, what garment should you could keep in your closet while the weather continues to transition? Say hello to the maxi dress.

There is nothing more effortless than this type of dress. Maxi dresses allow you to explore your bohemian side and let out your inner 70s goddess. If you are a lover of prints, bold colors, and fringe, the maxi dress makes a fabulous silhouette.


The Maxi Dress has multiple benefits. For example, it works on so many different body types. If you are curvy, you want to look for maxi dresses that are cinched at the waist to show off your figure. If you have an athletic frame, you want a maxi dress with thin straps to highlight your arms and narrow skirt to give shape. Being too short for a maxi dress is nothing but a myth. Look for a maxi dress with a high waistline and with a shorter hemline.

Need something to wear to a wedding or on your next vacation? Want to take the guesswork out of choosing an outfit for casual Friday at work? Your answer to these questions is the Maxi dress. Just add the right accessories to dress it up or down. You can style your maxi dress with a statement necklace and simple bangles, or flower-child inspired earrings. Finish off the look with some ankle boots or sandals. It’s no wonder why style icon Rachel Zoe has made the flowy, chic dress part of her signature look.

Whether temperatures are rising or falling, the maxi dress will always be a great solution for deciding what to wear.

Embrace the longer-dress-length life, ladies!
