Maxi dresses are a great way to look pulled together and dressed up without having to sport a short skirt or mini dress. These dresses reach your ankles or shins, and come in a variety of styles. Opt for a long flowy maxi dress for a bohemian, free-spirited look. Or, choose a form-fitting or bodycon maxi dress for a trendy, modern, figure-celebrating look. Maxi dresses may cover a lot of your body, but they don't have to be modest or prudish! Experiment with tighter silhouettes, cut outs, or a hot pair of heels.
