Can’t we just have this one thing that’s easy, and most importantly, comfortable? The Frisky staff are all such fans of the maxi dress (and its slightly more formal cousin, the “hi-lo” maxi dress) that we thought we’d get a list together with 14 reasons why:

I would GREATLY appreciate some help in finding maxi dresses that don’t make someone 5’1″ look pregnant. I always love how they look on everyone, and the few I’ve tried on are the most comfortable things on Earth, however, they always end up making me look short and fat, and often like I’m about to make an announcement that I’m expecting. I know that short women CAN pull this look off, but I don’t know where to even start. Any advice on how to make this look work would make me one happy girl as the summer gets underway! — Gina

As a fellow shortie, I feel your pain, It’s so hard finding maxi dresses that don’t either dwarf us, or make us look like tiny little expectant ladies. So I have a couple of tips and options for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

Ask The Man Panel: Michelangelo’s Maxi Dress

The product description for this ModCloth maxi dress begins as follows: “‘Every block of stone has a statue inside it, and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it,’ the great Michelangelo once said. Certainly, he wasn’t talking about this dress…” Luckily for us, our Man Panel certainly is talking about this dress — read on for their always candid, often hilarious, and sometimes poetic opinions… Keep reading »

Modesty Returns With The Mid-Calf Dress!

Do we have “Mad Men” to thank for the return to ’50s styling and modest silhouettes? While celebrities have been strutting around in the smallest and sheerest items on the market, runway designs have begun to take a more modest approach, reminiscent of the pieces our elder family members once wore. It’s time to button up, hide those knees, and learn to show off your figure thanks to the curves of a dress, rather than navigate skimpy and see-though designs. Meet the midi dress, which hits your calves instead of mid-(or high) thigh, tucks in the waist, and welcomes a discreet look back into your wardrobe. Given the recent trend of showing it all off to the world in bras as tops and lingerie as outerwear, the return to a meeker look will undoubtedly be a welcome change. But if you’re too afraid to buy a brand-new dress to try out the trend, we’d suggest going vintage trolling or snipping off the bottom of one of the few maxi dresses taking up space in your closet.
