Summer's hottest dress: the Maxi

The Maxi Dress is making a stunning return for the 2012 Summer Season. A universal complement for all body types, it is an ideal “go-to” summer dress. Whether worn with flat sandals for an afternoon spent running errands or dressed up for evening, the Maxi Dress is a chic way to embrace summer.

A brightly colored maxi is a completely versatile way to transition your look from day to night. In keeping up with another one of summer’s hottest trends, the strawberry-hued maxi from BCBG is not only flattering, but also totally wearable. Paired with flat sandals for day or more daring wedges for night, this dress is sure to impress.

A printed maxi dress is equal parts hippie-chic with an elegant twist. A tiered, ruffled hem sophisticates this fun and flirty number while still making it a viable option for both day and nighttime wear.

The Maxi Dress can also serve as a stylish beach cover-up. With a wide-brimmed straw hat and some killer shades, the maxi makes a day at the beach a fashionable occasion. The dress by Joiemakes an ideal cover-up; with its drawstring waist and cotton material, it is sure to provide comfort and sun-protection in style.

While not a dress, the Maxi Skirt is also getting major attention this season. Like its dress counterpart, the skirt version’s flexibility makes it perfect for cocktails or a casual ladies’ luncheon. Paired with a classic white blouse for day, as shown here by “Glee” actress, Dianna Agron, or dressed up à la Kate Bosworth for a nighttime affair, the maxi skirt’s versatility is part of its charm.

Whether dressed up or worn more casually for a day at the beach, the Maxi Dress is making waves this season. How do you plan on wearing your maxi this summer?
