Summer Chic Maxi Dresses with Soco Vintage

Maxi dresses are the summer go-to outfits for women across the board. Whether you are young or mature, pregnant or experienced mom, sporty or chic, maxi dresses are an easy choice for any occasion. A maxi can be dressed up for a summer wedding or dressed down for a July 4th picnic. The secret is in how you style it!

When you look for the maxi dress that is perfect for you there are several questions to ask yourself.

  • Does this dress define my waist?
  • Is it designed well for my height?
  • Can it be accessorized for different occasions?

If you are petite and are trying to avoid focus being drawn to your midsection then we think this dress is perfect for you. The high-waist style ensures that you won’t be self-conscious about your post-partum midsection and the long, lace skirt draws the eye down your body, creating an elongated profile.

Accessorizing is a breeze. This dress should be paired with some strappy, gladiator sandals and long, draping necklaces. Is it going to be a little chilly where you’re going in this stunning dress? Throw on a cropped denim jacket like this dark washed version by Lucky Brand to make this dress work for you even in a cooler climate.

Think you’d prefer the mini version of this dress? Consider the Mini Lace Dream Dress.

What she’s wearing: Bright Chevron Colorblock Maxi Dress.

This dress is perfect for tall, slender moms because of its elongated shape. The light, cotton fabric makes it perfect for the summer afternoons at the park with your toddler, or at the soccer game with your older children.

This maxi is the excellent choice for a last minute outfit that looks chic and put-together. Top with a medium brimmed hat like this wool hat by American Apparel. Instead of a necklace, consider a light, cotton scarf like this tasseled scarf.
