Maxi dresses have long been of my favorite styles for spring and summer. What I love the most about them is they’re effortlessly chic, cool and can be dressed up or down, so you can wear them time and time again for nearly every occasion.

Maxi dresses are perfect for women of every age! It doesn’t matter how tall or short you are either. I was convinced for years that I couldn’t wear maxi dresses because I’m petite, (under 5’4”) but that isn’t true. More often than not, you can find maxi dresses for petites! If you find your dream dress that is a little too long, you can always take it to a seamstress and have it hemmed. Don’t think you can’t wear one just because you’re a certain height, that just isn’t true. 

How To Accessorize A Maxi Dress For Every Occasion

I love that maxi dresses can be worn with heels, wedge sandals, slide sandals, and comfy flip flops! They can be dressed up or dressed down with jewelry and accessories. This season pendant necklaces, and oversized earrings in a variety of materials, styles and colors are incredibly popular. You can always pair a casual maxi with a great pair of bright oversized earrings on your next summer vacation.

How To Wear A Maxi Dress To A Wedding

If you’re attending a wedding this summer, make sure you pair your favorite maxi dress with wedge sandals or strappy heel sandals. For those headed to a country wedding, make sure you pair your cute maxi dress with your favorite pair of cowboy boots or Western inspired ankle booties! You will look fabulous and definitely make a statement.

Maxi Dresses Are A Must For Every Occasion This Summer

Maxi dresses are not only perfect for weddings or vacation season, they’re a must for everyday. They can be worn to run errands, to a pool party, graduations, 4th of July backyard bash, Sunday brunch and more. I love throwing on a lightweight maxi dress on a hot day, it instantly cools me down and makes me feel chic and very relaxed! 

I hope I gave you a few ideas on how you can wear maxi dresses and different ways you can accessorize them for everyday or a dressy occasion. If you’re shopping for a trendy new maxi dress for summer 2019 and beyond, you’re in luck. Today, I’m excited to share 20 of the best maxi dresses for women in every age group.
