It’s no secret, floral print maxi dresses are my obsession this summer. Last year was definitely the summer of rompers, but 2017 is the summer of the printed maxi dress. I don’t think I am alone either, plus size bloggers have been featuring maxi dresses since the last frost.
Maxi dresses are like the leggings of the hot months. They allow you to move around freely without a waistband. Maxis keep the swamp butt syndrome of summer to a minimal (who needs jeans anyway). A printed maxi dress can make you look festive for the season without needing to put in much effort. Have you ever worn a metal necklace on a hot day only to find yourself just seconds away from third dress burns on your clavicle?
10 Printed Maxi Dress looks to try this summer
Any outfit that allows you to eat, drink and move freely without jabbing into your belly or leaving marks on your calves is a good choice. Especially when it’s 85 degrees and humid outside. That is why I am putting together a round-up of my favorite printed maxi dresses.
