Perfect for the lazy days of summer, maxi dresses can be dressed up with espadrille wedges for a summer BBQ or left casual for the poolside with flip-flops and a bathing suit. The maxi dress is a must-have essential for summer. The great thing about the maxi dress is it can easily go from day to night with just a few accessory changes. I am definitely  going to invest in more maxi dresses because I seriously would live in them! Here is a roundup of my nine favorite maxi dresses.

1. The nude dress with chic black accessories is my all time favorite look! This might be the easiest way to rock a maxi in any season. The toughened-up-girly-girl is by far my favorite look because it works for all hours of the day. A dress in a pretty, neutral color (like pink, gray, or beige) is made sexy and edgy with some leather accessories, and a little added heel or wedge finishes it off.
