9 Maxi Dresses for All Body Types

Rachel Zoe and I both agree, maxi dresses are a must have. If you’ve seen her show, you know that she fights to save them in her collections. She doesn’t understand why people can’t live without them and neither do I. Maxi dresses are my favorite type of dress. They’re so easy and comfortable yet look so great. You don’t need to worry if the wind whirls about like with other dresses. For whatever reason, if you have legs that you like to keep under wraps, maxi dresses fit the bill perfectly. I could go on and on about why maxi dresses rock, but let’s cut it short and look at the 9 that are so adorbs, you’ll need to get more than one. Let’s take this summer to the max!

P.S. You’ve probably heard that petites shouldn’t wear maxis because blah, blah, blah. Totally untrue. I’m vertically challenged and wear my maxis with very high heels. If you’re wearing it someplace you’ll be walking so much you really need to wear flats, just throw your shoulders back, stand tall and show by your attitude, you can carry off any length dress.
