Maxi Dresses: From Day to Evening
I love maxi dresses for a million different reasons, and one of the main reasons is that you can wear a maxi to breakfast, to the beach, to the pool, to lunch with your pals, to the mall, and to dinner at a fancy-dancy restaurant. All you need is an assortment of accessories to alter the "feel" of your dress.
A Simple Daytime Maxi Dress
You need to start with a simple maxi so that you can change your maxi dress "style" from day wear to evening wear in a matter of minutes. However, if your frock is too dressy and you wear it to breakfast, you're going to look like you've been out all night... or worse.
If you don't have a plain maxi dress (possibly one with an empire waist), you should find a dress that's cut in a simple, flattering style. After that, you can add other long dresses to your collection. Anyway, here is a nice little video that shows how to turn a plain maxi dress into a chameleon-style workhorse.
Almost nothing is as versatile as a maxi dress. The only other types of clothing that are similar in their level of versatility are jeans, tee shirts, and gauzy swimsuit coverups. Well, that is my opinion.
