With the sweltering summer temperatures, clothes can be your best friend or your enemy. Tight garments and certain fabrics (i.e. polyester) can trap heat while flowy flocks let your skin breathe. Enter: the maxi dress. The long, loose fitting dresses come in a variety of colors and patterns, perfect for a summer day.
Contrary to popular belief, the maxi looks great on all sizes. Opt for a dress that skims your body, versus one that swallows you up. Even a simple black maxi can be dressed up with layers of necklaces or a bold necklace.
Sears has some celeb-inspired maxi dresses.
