A girl can never have too many cover-ups and one of my absolute favorite styles is the maxi dress. I love me a good maxi because a) they’re versatile b) they’re practical and c) they’re just so darn comfy! Read on to check out my top 5 maxi dress cover-ups for the 2012 season…
1. Melissa by Melissa Odabash
The Melissa Dress is one of my fave maxi-style cover-ups, mostly because of its bright apricot hue. Orange is one of the hottest colors for 2012 and this maxi’s right on trend! The tiered ruffle detail adds some great texture and the strapless modal design makes it easy to throw on and off.
2. Niza by OndadeMar
Another one of my favorite maxi dress cover-ups is the Niza Maxi by OndadeMar. Colored animal prints are a huge 2012 trend and I just love this bold leopard print with pops of pink! This maxi dress has an open back, adjustable drawstring waist and chic ruffle detail. And the rayon fabric is perfect for summer!
3. Saltwater Crush by Seafolly
This next pick is from one of my favorite Australian brands—Seafolly Swimwear. The Saltwater Crush maxi features a boho-chic tie-dye print with a flattering smocked bust. Maxi dress cover-ups like this are perfect for the beach, pool or even that upcoming music festival! Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza… here I come!
4. Uluwatu by ViX Swimwear
If you couldn’t already tell by my previous picks, I’m a huge fan of prints and bold, notice-me styles, so of course the Uluwatu Dress by ViX Swimwear made my list. This is by far one of the most beautiful maxi dress cover-ups I’ve ever seen! I love the colorful ombre-striped print and sheer silk fabric. And the low-cut open back is super sexy.
5. Tori by Tori Praver
Last but not least we have the Tori Long Dress by Tori Praver. This is another awesome festival-appropriate piece but it’s also perfect for the summer days ahead! Although it may look like your ordinary tank-style maxi dress, there’s more to it than meets the eye. It has a sexy side slit, chic racer-back design and adorable pocket detail. I love cover-ups in modal/lycra blends like the Tori Dress—they’re definite wardrobe staples and are perfect for any warm weather occasion!
Which maxi dress cover-ups are your faves? Happy summer, chicas!
