Outside of a nice little romper, our favorite piece for summer is the almighty maxi dress. Why you ask? Here are the top 6 reasons why every woman, mom, and young lady should have at least 1 if not 2 maxi dresses in there wardrobe:
#6 Underwear optional:
(As long as the material is not sheer that is ). Run out of clean undies? Is it so hot and humid that you wish you could walk around in your birthday suit? Free ball in a maxi, and let it all breathe.
#5 Baby bump friendly:
An empire waste maxi dress is a great transitional and functional piece that can be worn before, during, and after pregnancy.
#4 Hide those hairy legs:
If you have unsightly stubble, no time to shave, or just want to give your skin a break from the razor, a floor length maxi can cover up those fuzzy stems as well as a pair of pants. This benefit ranks #1 with many ladies.
#3 Style 2 Ways:
You can dress up a maxi dress with heels and statement jewelry for instant elegance and glam for a night out or event, or dress it down casual and be beach ready with a sunhat, flip flops, or flat thong sandals.
The maxi dress (like any dress) is a no-brainer. First, by default of being a one piece quick outfit, and second, maxi dresses are easily found at most retailers (online and offline) in any price range.
You won’t have to sacrifice style for comfort with the right maxi dress. Who wants to be uncomfortable in the dog days of summer? That can make mommy a real b$#%ch! That goes 100 fold if you’re with child, or going through the “change of life” when your body temperature and mood are about as erratic and volatile as a phone call from Mel Gibson.
