Editor's Notes

July 28, 2020:

Maxi dresses make it easy to put together a fashionable outfit with a pair of heels, bracelets, and your favorite purse. Many of these pieces may need alterations to fit you properly, so you may need to send your garment to a tailor. If you want to save money in the long run, learn how to sew and invest in a sewing machine and sewing kit to make your own alterations. Check your model's specific washing instructions as some must be hand washed or hung dry to help keep the garment's integrity.

Long dresses can be suitable for sophisticated occasions, such as weddings, proms, or dinner parties. The Alicepub Evening Gown is a great solution for brides who are looking for many dresses for their wedding party. It comes in a variety of sizes and colors to match your color scheme, and you can send the company specific alterations so your bridesmaids can look and feel comfortable on your special day. If you want a dark and sophisticated selection, the Koh Koh Cocktail Gown has a lovely and mysterious appearance that's suitable for those who enjoy Gothic-inspired aesthetics. This also works well as a Halloween costume.

Sometimes you need a dress that works for everyday outings, which is why I recommend the Grecerelle Casual. It's a simple and relaxed piece that can be paired with a jacket and scarf to keep you warm during brisk fall days. If the aforementioned choice is too simple for your liking, you might enjoy the YesNo Casual Swing. It comes with side pockets so you can ditch the purse at home, and is very lightweight, which makes is great to wear during the warm summer months of the year.
