There are so many great reasons to love a maxi dress or skirt. They are classic, yet fashionable and fun, depending on how you accessorize them.

Being versatile, flattering and feminine, you can enjoy maxis for most any occasion from cool and relaxed, to cocktail chic, to Sunday best. They literally have you covered from day to night, keeping you comfortable and stylish, fashionable and free. There is also very little chance of a wardrobe malfunction with a maxi!

With flip-flops, a sun hat and tote you can head to the beach, a casual lunch or shopping.

Slip on heels, statement jewelry and an elegant shawl for a little more glam for a night out.

For church, brunch, a shower or tea, make your maxi a little more conservative with a jacket, pearls and pumps.

As long as the fabric is not too light or not too heavy, you can enjoy the maxi year round. For summer, wear bright, fun accessories and sandals. For winter, wear leggings, boots, and a textured sweater or jacket in fall colors, or always chic black. In’s an excellent investment piece.


This is such a great time of year to find maxi skirts and dresses on sale. This wardrobe essential has been around since the 70’s so you’re safe that it won’t go out of style with that kind of staying power. It will probably become a closet staple for you when you find out how comfy they are and how creative you can be.
