10 Maxi Dresses to Jump Start the Season

A great way to update any wardrobe for a new season is to start with the basics.  A solid, or striped, maxi dress can be just the thing.

A solid maxi dress can be the layering to a blazer, cardigan, or buttondown.  It can also be the backdrop for eye-catching jewelry.  Here are some totally affordable options if you're in the market for buying new!


Solid Summer Staples

If you are looking for something with a little "more" try a striped full-length dress.  I love the way these look on their own or layered, too.
