I love the look of this dress! It's great that maxi dresses can flatter so many different body types. This one looks so breezy! What a great idea for summer.

I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer. They're so effortlessly cool and chic. Short-sleeved ones like this with a side slit are my favorite.
