4. Breezy Maxi Dress
When the weather becomes unbearably hot we often find ourselves wishing for clothing pieces that would feel like we’re not really wearing anything. This breezy maxi dress we found at eHow is one just like that and we’ll definitely be adding it to our summer wardrobe!
5. High-Waist Maxi Skirt
Technically, One Simple Bliss‘ maxi piece is not a dress but a skirt. However, because the design is very high-waist and the skirt so beautifully long, when you pair it with the right top you actually get a dress out of it! It’s a very creative and unique piece!
6. Criss Cross Maxi Dress
When you’re making your own clothes you can bring to reality any idea that has formed in your mind. Sometimes you wish for a really simplistic maxi dress in a neutral color, but with a slight dynamic to the design. We found the perfect one at It’s Always Autumn!
7. Boho Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses can conform to any style, but there’s no denying that their pairing with boho fashion feels like a soulmate union. The boho maxi dress by Merrick’s Art is the perfect example! The colorful fabric makes you visible from afar and the looseness of the dress provides the necessary comfort!
8. Draped Neck Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is mostly worn as an everyday piece, but the addition of a draped neck and a lush belt goes a long way when you’re trying to create a piece that could accompany you to more glamorous events as well. Visit Sew Petite Gal to learn more!
