Awesomely Affordable: 10 Summer-Ready Maxi Dresses Under $50

Why wear a maxi dress during the summer? It’s simple: Shaving your legs every friggin’ day gets so tedious. Plus, maxi dresses are a femme, flow-y way to stay cool in the face of 90 degree heat and humidity. Throw one over your head, slip on some sandals and you’re ready for work, the beach — just about anywhere. Maxis are the best, so you’re probably gonna want to have at least a couple to get you through the warmer months, which is why I’ve found 10 great options, all under $50 each. Maxify your life with abandon!

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Pairs Of Work-Friendly Sandals

Ladies, step away from the flip flops. As comfy as they may be around the house or in the dorm/gym shower (please, you’re not going in there barefoot, are you?), flip flops aren’t appropriate in, like, 99 percent of office environments. You might think if you put a massive foam platform on it or something, it’s okay, but no. Also, those foam platform flip flops gross me out in the same way espadrilles do.

So what is appropriate? First, check if your workplace has any kind of dress code. Here at The Frisky, the general rule is, “go ahead, wear some clothes, and maybe some shoes — though you really don’t necessarily need to even keep them on all day.” Yeah, we’re gross. But most places, not so much. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to make sure more of your foot is covered than uncovered — especially if you work in any kind of public-facing job (aka retail). Nobody needs to see your shrimp cocktail toes.

Above, 10 awesome, affordable pairs of summer sandals that we think would work in most offices (all under $100 bucks!).

Awesomely Affordable: 9 White Dresses Under $100

The other day, I did a post of celeb ladies wearing white, where I told y’all how I’d been indoctrinated to believe that you shouldn’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. But then a couple readers mentioned that they thought that the no-white prohibition ended on Easter, not Memorial Day. I did a quick poll of the office and we all think it’s Memorial Day and oh my God, I’m sure you guys don’t really care. You’re like, get to the clothes already! In the event that you’d like to usher in summer more quickly, and are feeling particularly brave around snack foods, we’ve got nine white dresses — all under $100 — that will work perfectly.
