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:

No Underwear Under Maxi dress


#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.

Jessica Alba Maxi Dress


#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.




Shaving Legs#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: Alice + Olivia halter maxi dress
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.






Easy Button#2 Easy:
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.




Comfort#1 Comfort:
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.
