A staple you can’t do without this sunny season is definitely a long summer dress. Of course we all love the cuteness and fun factor of a short sundress or beachwear, but a well chosen maxi dress will take you from daytime comfort to nighttime sophistication with ease and great style.

Last summer was definitely the ‘season of the dress’ and happily this trend is sticking around for this summer season as well. Although the maxi dresses’ equally hot rival the mini dress is still going strong as a popular favorite for many, the long summer dress is equally hot for looking great and showing off that sometimes ‘more is more’!

The best thing about a long summer dress is that its so fuss free. The dress itself will be the main focal point of your outfit, so there’s no need to stress to much over accessories or other add ons. A couple simple accessory pieces will do well enough to keep all eyes on the dress and maintain an uncluttered look.
A long dress looks incredible on tall women, but can also flatter a petite frame if its well chosen and hemmed to the proper length. Don’t allow an oversize, bulky maxi dress to swallow you up underneath!

Juniors can sport the long dress as well this summer as its still youthful and fresh while keeping a more modest look.
Wherever this summer season takes you this year, a trendy long dress will ensure you’re styled right for the occasion. Shed the blahs of winter now and get ready for the easy breezy glorious and feminine days of summertime!
