Thanks to their breezy silhouettes, an extensive range of prints, and a wide spectrum of colors, maxi dresses pretty much double as cover-ups once summer rolls around. However, when styled correctly, they don’t have to be worn exclusively at the beach – they can be given a street-chic appeal for a night out on the town or even elevated for a black-tie affair. Their ground-grazing length is stunning and the effect is always dramatic.
With the dog days of summer officially underway, I repeatedly find myself reaching for this fringe Mara Hoffman maxi. It indisputably is my favorite dress for summer 2016. Not only is it the most comfortable dress in my closet, it’s versatile enough to be worn for almost every kind of occasion imaginable.
