Maxis are everywhere these days.  I wasn’t sold on them at first, but I do own one maxi dress and one maxi skirt, and have come to really like their versatility.  These long, billowing dresses or skirts are comfortable and low key while still being stylish,sexy and feminine.

They were popular in the 70s, but are no longer a tent of polyester fabric.  Today's designers use cotton and other fine fabrics, which keep the wearer feeling cool and breezy, even on the hottest of days.

Modern maxi dresses also offer a much more flattering fit, and are great for hiding problem areas on days that you don’t quite feel your best.  It’s almost like wearing a hat on a bad hair day.

They are great for running errands in the daytime, wearing as a beach cover-up or dressing it up for a night out on the town.  The best part?  They are so comfortable…it’s almost like wearing a nightgown!
