It’s easy to see the sudden appeal of a maxi dress. For the most part, they keep you covered, which is ideal for the changeable weather we’re currently experiencing. Still, the attraction goes way beyond practicality-there’s something downright fabulous about wearing a maxi dress. My guess is all the swooshing potential. After a couple of years spent dressing for comfort and very little else, I’m all for wanting to feel fancy in my clothes again.
