Maxi-mize Your Spring/Summer Style

With all the rising hemlines in recent trends, I’m especially glad to welcome back the maxi dress for spring and summer 2012.  A maxi is comfortable, chic, and quite versatile.

I’ve been fond of the long dresses that appear in Express stores.  My favorite maxi is still the bluebird, graphic print, halter maxi dress from that store.  Here’s that favorite maxi styled for a chilly spring day.

I had this maxi altered to shorten it. At 5’4″, this is usually necessary.

This Gap sweater was a super clearance buy.  Gap sweaters lose form so quickly.

Belt—Talbots Outlet
Shoes—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Marshalls
Bag—MICHAEL Michael Kors (Hamilton tote) via Macy’s

New maxis are appearing in Express and they’re already demanding my attention.  They are so chic!
