Don’t you love slipping into your favorite pair of broken-in, could-wear-every-day jeans? There’s nothing like that feeling of satisfaction when you’re wearing clothes that look and feel great on. That’s exactly what maxi dresses deliver when you wear them in the warm months. It’s safe to say that it’s at the top of my totem pole for comfort, MAXI-mum comfort. The maxi silhouette looks stunning on almost ever body type. One-shoulder, halter, bandeau, short sleeve, long sleeve, spaghetti straps; a cornucopia of styles! I really can’t think of a body type that the maxi dress doesn’t compliment.
A chick can never have too many ankle skimming wonders, which recently led me to a maxi dress hunt. I enjoy shopping online but felt the need to go out and give some different ones a spin in the fitting room. I visited a chic, on-trend boutique in Raleigh, NC: gena chandler (located in North Hills). A pleasant surprise, Gena has designs from Rachel Pally, Tibi, Feel The Piece, Karina Grimaldi, Diane von Furstenberg and more. Check out a few that I loved…
The embroidered detail at the top of this dress caught my eye! The design innocently flirts with the sizzling color blocking and tribal trend, perfect for someone who wants to try either of those trends but not fully commit to it.
Simple, classic and chic; a black racerback maxi dress is the perfect piece to build on. View it as a blank canvas, you’re free to add jewelry, a blazer, cardigan, a belt… Endless possibilities. A black maxi (well any black dress) is a must-have staple item.
There were so many maxi dresses that I loved, I could have twirled around in the fitting room all day! gena chandler has an outstanding selection of clothes, not just maxis; colored denim from J Brand, beautiful blouses as well as essential basics. If you’re ever in the Raleigh NC area, swing by 4209-106 Lassiter Mill Road Raleigh, NC 27609, you’ll love it!
Maxi dresses deliver comfort, sex appeal and are timeless classics; it’s true, MAXI-mum comfort all wrapped up in one piece! One of my spring/summer essentials. Do you love maxi dresses as much as I do? What are some of your warm month style favorites?
