One item no closet should be without this summer is the Maxi Dress or Patio Dress. This 60's inspired look comes in many colors, prints and styles so there something for everyone. The incredibly versatile Maxi Dress can be worn to a casual pool party with sandals and chunky jewelry, to a summer wedding with a cropped cardigan and a heel or to work with a jacket. However you choose to wear it, we're confident that you'll be able to get a lot of use out of it this season.
A welcomed change from the mini dresses of seasons past, the Maxi Dress offers a more flattering alternative for those of us without perfect figures. If you're petite, you can easily alter a straight hemmed Maxi Dress as long as you get one without special details around them bottom. An empire waist will also give you the illusion of being taller by adding visual inches to your stature. These dresses also work wonders on curvy figures when you opt for a slimmer cut, avoiding excess fabric. Don't underestimate the importance of a dress with a defined waistline if you have a plus size figure; you don't want too look like you're wearing a potato sack.
At The Denim Shop you can find Maxi dresses from LAMade, My Michelle and Lani in solids and prints.
