Crop tops, bikinis, shorts, and swimsuits are great choices for the beach. But nothing quite beats the maxi dress. Here, we take a look at five reasons why this long, flowy dress is the perfect beach outfit.
Nothing is as easy to wear as maxi dresses. They are loose, long and comfortable. While a maxi dress might not be your first choice for a day at the beach, there are many reasons why you should ditch the shorts, crop tops and bikinis for it. See some of the reasons here.
1. They are comfortable
Maxi dresses are as comfortable as they come. They are free and flowy, making it easy for you to breathe without worrying about constant adjustments and tugging to your dress. They also feel good on your skin, as they are usually light and airy. Rather than spending time searching for what you deem the perfect outfit for the beach, toss on a maxi dress.
2. They are easy to wear
Wearing a maxi dress is easy! Just pull it over your head, and viola, you are good to go! Yes, we mean that literally. Plus, you are beach ready once you slip on flats or sandals. Sometimes, too, all you need is a cute pair of slip-ons. You do not have to get worked up over matching shoes or bags, and you certainly do not have to panic over the thought of your shirt button coming loose while on the beach.
3. They are protective
Forgetting to shave your legs or fear of the weather are not excuses for missing out on some beach fun. The maxi dress hides your legs perfectly. You probably would not need sunscreen when you wear a maxi dress, as your legs and thighs would be shielded from the sun - except there is a slit or more. The maxi dress also comes to the rescue when the weather is cold. The last thing you want to do is wear a pair of trousers on the beach. If you would rather not show skin, too, this dress is for you.
4. They are flexible
Maxi dresses are perfect for all beach occasions, from a casual beach hangout with a few friends and a romantic beach daycation with your significant other to a beach party with colleagues from work. With maxi dresses, you do not have to worry about looking out of place or being underdressed. They are as chic and stylish as they are comfortable. So, wear that maxi dress and go have some fun.
5. They are feminine
Because they are loose and flowy, maxi dresses are sometimes seen as boring draped dresses. But nothing could be further from the truth. They might be loose but they flatter your body, showing off your curves, especially if they are of a lycra material. You can achieve an even greater feminine and graceful look with your footwear and jewellery pieces.
