Forget the mini hemlines of the past. Maxi dresses are what’s haute right now. These floor length day dresses are an essential for every woman. Choose from strapless, halter or tank-top varieties. Fabrics range from jersey, to organic satin, to cotton. And it doesn’t matter if you’re short or tall. For those blessed with long legs, the maxi dress is easy and breezy paired with flats – gladiator sandals also add a nice touch. For more petite gals, maximize the length and kick up the height a notch with wedges heels or stilettos. Either way, the maxi dress is a must-have piece to transition from summer to fall.

I love the colorblock maxi dress as advertised on the website, but unfortunately cannot find any link or way of ordering the dress and I am sooooo dissapointed as I have a wedding to attend next month and thought it looked perfect
