A maxi dress is one of my favorite summer trends, because a shapely black maxi is so versatile and easy to wear. For day: pair it with a fedora, a straw purse, and a leather sandal for a casual market look. For night: dress it up with a pair of wedges or a jeweled sandal, a bright clutch, and sleek bun. A pop of color on the lips goes a long way, too. However you choose to wear it, you’ll feel elongated and lean in a black maxi this summer. Enjoy these four great options.
