In the past few years, maxi dresses and maxi skirts have made a massive impact. The long, ground-skimming dresses create a soft, feminine look that is perfect for any occasion. Between summer concerts and date nights, maxi dresses are the perfect staple for a cute, go-to look.

I have to admit I wasn’t someone who immediately jumped on to the maxi dress bandwagon, but now I am all about this look for spring. These long, flowing dresses will keep any Fashionista comfortable and cool as we head into the warmer days of spring. There are all sorts of maxi dresses and maxi skirts for all style types. You can go hippie with a sheer skirt or preppy with a pattern. Either way, there is a maxi out there for every girl.

This Fashionista exhibits why a maxi dress is an essential element in her closet. Its pattern is fun and bright and exudes a slight tribal feel which is perfect for spring. Styling her outfit with nothing but a bubble necklace and a chunky gold bangle, she keeps it simple so the main focus is on her fabulous, patterned dress. I think that maxi dresses have been such a big hit because the flowy fabric isn’t too tight in the warmer weather. That’s why this Fashionista opts for this flowy garment. Maxi dresses are perfect for those warmer spring days because it keeps your look cute, comfortable and not too hot.
