Sure, maxi dresses for the summer may not seem groundbreaking, but in this alluring cut they quickly become irresistible. This new, paper-bag waistline adds instant detail and breathes new life into a simple maxi with little to no effort. Why? Because, it’s both feminine and coy, and makes you look up to two sizes smaller simply by default. The elegance of the ground grazing length and flirtiness of the open back make this throw-on-and-go dress perfect for the last of your summer getaways.
While this maxi can be a bit of a splurge, a number of boutiques throughout the country have it fully stocked and even more importantly, on the sale rack. From time to time, I’ll check pictures that Mara Hoffman is tagged in on Instagram in order to find random boutiques that carry the brand. I do this because boutiques are much quicker to mark down Mara Hoffman product than department stores. Although it takes a little bit of time and research, it’s totally worth it when you score a dress for a third of the original price!
