The Maxi dress trend has come and is here to stay. Great for summer, Graceful Chic has picked three great maxi dresses for different occasions: work, play, and night.
Dress a maxi up for work! Here we have chosen a floral maxi, pairing it with strappy ankle sandals and tear drop earrings. Finishing the look, a coral blazer adds a pop of color and is the professional element to pulling off this ensemble for work.
