Two years ago, if you would have asked me to put on a maxi dress, I would have told you that I’d prefer to not look like I was going to Prom on any given day. I felt maxi dresses were too formal, and couldn’t be styled in a way that made them feel “everyday.” I felt swallowed alive in every maxi dress I tried on and I was never tall enough to strut around in one without stepping all over the hem.
I am not sure what has changed, I can tell you I’m not any taller, but I adore maxi dresses this season. I’d venture to say I’ve added more maxi dresses to my closets the summer than swimwear, and that is saying something! Here are a few I’ve purchased, and would recommend, if your maxi obsessed, or, soon-to-be maxi obsessed.
(Side note: Thanks to my mom for taking these photos while the twins ran rogue. They may have drank fountain water, may have tormented the cashiers at Williams & Sonoma for candy, and most definitely required us to purchase them new outfits since they smelled liked pond water!)
I wanted to also add a few notes on the retailers I purchased these maxi’s from:
- Shein – Great for VERY inexpensive, fun pieces; however, quality is dependent on the piece. Definitely read the individual item reviews!
- Vici Collection – At this time, Vici Collection does not have free returns so when the sizing on the floral maxi was a little off I was pretty bummed. However, they collaborate heavily with bloggers to offer 20% off pretty much all the time. If you’ve been wanting to give them a try, I used the code KBSTYLED20 to get my discount. I think their pieces are unique and worth giving a try (especially if you know styles that typically fit your body well).
- Nordstrom – Well, still my favorite retailer. Free shipping, free returns, and something in everyone’s price range.
