Summer is around the corner and that only means that those holidays in Europe or the Caribbean are closer, and that in addition to enjoying incredible outdoor activities, we will also be able to use all those fresh, comfortable and feminine pieces that we like so much. Shorts, bathing suits and flat sandals are a must for this season, but we know that long dresses are essential. Maxi dresses are not only easier to wear and more flattering for all body types, but they also make us look very feminine and effortless.

Look for maxi dresses made from breathable fabrics like cotton, linen or chiffon. These fabrics will keep you cool and comfortable during hot summer days. Colors and prints are also important, so we recommend to leave behind dark colors like black, brown and grey, and opt for more striking colors such as fuchsia, yellow and neon green. Summer is also a great time to embrace vibrant and colorful prints. They exude a fresh and feminine vibe and that's a plus we all want in a look. 

We love that maxi dresses are versatile and can be dressed up or down for different occasions. You can wear them casually with flat sandals or even with sneakers, or dress them up just adding heels and statement accessories for a more formal and sexy look. They are great for beach weddings or summer parties, as their breezy design and lightweight fabrics make them very comfortable. With no further ado, take a look at the cute, fabulous and chic maxi dresses we found so you can be “that girl” this summer.
