What To Wear

4 fresh ways to wear a maxi dress

Need the perfect summer outfit? Look no further! Maxi dresses are quintessentially summer: They’re fun, easy, and totally versatile. Plus, there’s a million ways you can style them. Here are four of our favorite looks to rock your maxi.

 

As a beach coverup: A loose, comfy, breezy maxi dress is perfect for the beach. If you feel like stepping out of the sun for a while, just throw one on over your swimsuit. It doesn’t have to match perfectly—a little clashing can be cute!

Under a cropped tee: Throwing on a cropped T-shirt over your favorite maxi is a cool and easy way to create a whole new outfit. It will fool everyone into thinking you’re wearing a super cute new skirt. Shhh--we’ll keep your fashionable secret!
