How to Find the Perfect Maxi

navy and white striped  // white ruffle // pink drawstring // green flowy

I've always wanted to wear a maxi dress, but for some reason I never thought I could pull it off. Something about the long dress scared me off, you know? This year, though, I finally decided to take the plunge and get looking for one. Surprisingly, the best ones I found were from Old Navy! (is it just me or have they been killin it lately?) I went in the store and tried on a bunch of them, and then ordered the ones I liked the best online. The style I ended up liking the best is the pink drawstring one and I cannot wait to wear it all summer long. It's so adorable for parties or even just to go to the beach. What I found to be the key to finding the perfect maxi dress is trying on every style you can find. Strapless, drawstring, flowy, striped, tulip bottom, you name it! Get a feel for the look you like the best and try out different colors and patterns. After all, maxis are great to add a little variety to your summer wardrobe.

Now tell me, where do you find maxi dresses for summer?


  1. I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer months! And you're right, Old Navy has been killing it lately :)

  4. It is so hard for me to find a maxi dress that works on me, so I will have to checkout Old Navy! I love the pink drawstring one too!

  5. I love maxi dresses! I'm short so I have to get them all altered but it's great having a grandma who can do a hem in five minutes ;)
