10 Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress

I’m in love with Maxi Dresses. I think they’re elegant and chic and just – well, fabulous.

For YEARS I stayed away from Maxi Dresses because I’m only 5 feet and I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS thought I could never – in a million years – pull one off. Finally – a few years ago – I just said, ENOUGH. I’m buying one and I’m wearing it. I truly fell in fashion-love.

Viola! I’ve been a Maxi Dress wearer ever since! I own about 20 Maxi Dresses now! I’m BEYOND excited to be sharing with you 10 ways to wear a Maxi Dress today! I’ve partnered up with 9 of my favorite fashion blogging friends to bring you all of our looks! Since I’m all about summer whites in the summer, I thought it would fun to show-off a new Maxi Dress I just got from Chadwick’s!

How to Wear a Maxi Dress

This Embroidered V-tiered Gauze Maxi Dress form Chadwick’s is incredible! It’s soft. It’s comfortable. It’s chic. It’s perfect summer-style. It really is pure romance in flowing gauze with embroidered trim and empire waist with stretchy smocked back. I can’t say enough amazing things about it – it’s a summer staple for me now. And – this is a HUGE thing – my sons ALL loved it!

    This looks fabulous on you and I love that you are showing that shorter women can wear maxis too!!!

    You look absolutely stunning as you always do. I love that white maxi! I am like you, I steered clear of them as well. Mine was because I just wasn’t sure how to wear them and what shoes to put with them. The older I get the more I realize how comfortable I am in my own skin. Isn’t it crazy that we have to figure that out older and not younger?

    Love, love, love that white dress! I’m 5’2” and although I’m also short, I think we can still rock this dress all summer long. 😉
