4 Wonderful Advantages of Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses, usually defined as an informal ankle-to-floor length dress, are certainly one of the most fun dresses to shop for. They’re a perfect dress for Los Angeles when you want to wear something comfortable while not overexposing your skin. So, why are maxi dresses such a perfect option for so many occasions?

They’re Comfortable and Airy: When it’s hot out, maxi dresses are the perfect way to cover your legs and keep them out of the sun. At the same time, the flowing nature of the dress lets your legs remain cool.

Formally Informal: Some occasions require you to look nice while still looking just a little bit dressy. While maxi dresses are informal, they still allow you to retain some a level of modesty on your bottom half.

The top half, on the other hand, is all up to the dress you choose! Perhaps you need cap sleeves to cover your bra straps, or maybe you’ll go bra-less. This leads us to one of the maxi dresses biggest advantages...

Variety: There’s an incredible amount of variety in maxi dresses. No matter your shape, whether it’s slim or full, there’s a maxi dress that will complement your size.

You Get To Wear Comfortable Shoes: Because of the ankle- or floor-length nature of the maxi dress, coupled with its informal nature, most shoes you’ll be wearing will be flat and comfortable. High heels aren’t really something that goes with maxi dresses, though if you want to retain your height you might wear platform shoes.
