We LOVE all kinds of dresses, but recently, we are really lusting after anything maxi-related! It is so easy to just throw on a dress and just jet out of your house whenever you need to. We tend to gravitate towards dresses that are lightweight and airy (try out cotton, jersey, or chiffon pieces and you can't go wrong). Apart from choosing a lightweight option, we also like to make sure that our maxi dresses have a bit of detailing or at least a touch of something different - like a high slit, open back, sheer fabric, thin cross-straps, etc. (you get it, right?)

Try out a sheer delicate piece like Ken and pair it with a peek-a-boo lacey bralette for some sass, and a colorful bag that screams warmer weather. Or, go for an airy cotton maxi dress like Cas with high slits to spice up your outfit, and pair it with neutral accessories. We both clearly love our Jeffrey Campbell studded sandals (we have had them for years, and can't get enough of them). We pair those sandals with anything and everything - when you find a gem like that, make sure that you scoop it right up.
