I’m tall and thin, so I covet the curves some of my friends have. There are so many things I can’t wear, because they’re just not flattering on my stick-person body! But there is one trend I can wear well, so I’m glad it’s still here — maxis. For some reason, even I look great in this long, lean trend… and so do all of m curvy friends! Some of the best maxi pieces I’ve seen have been at Free People… they’re all so well-made and versatile! Here are 7 gorgeous maxis from Free People.
1 Free People Hand Crochet Maxi Dress
This creamy cotton maxi dress features a scoop neck and an all-over hand-crocheted pattern that’s to die for. Layer it over something dark brown or black for maximum impact, and be sure to include your favorite long necklace, too. Gorgeous!
2 Free People Floral Halter Maxi Dress
This patterned maxi dress is ideal for summer, with an all-over polka dot pattern and wide flowers scattered about. The neckline is a flattering halter, and the sides are slit for easy walking (and for showing some of your lovely legs). Pair with a cropped cardi, leggings and boots for winter, or with strappy flat sandals and a loose braid for summer.
3 Free People FP-1 Desert Florals Maxi Skirt
Maxi doesn’t have to mean “dress.” It can be other clothes, too, like this gorgeous semi-sheer floral maxi skirt. It’s slightly longer in the back than in front, and is so pretty layered over leggings and lace-up booties or under a vest or cardi. There’s no fuss at the waist, either, with a simple pull-on elastic band and no buttons or zippers to fuss with.
4 Free People New Horizons Maxi Cardigan
So soft! This striped maxi cardi is the perfect way to add another layer of warmth and style this winter, in either blue and navy blue or white and grey stripes. It looks stunning with super-skinny jeans and tall boots, or with a long skirt and flats.
5 Free People Lace Maxi Patchwork Dress
What a spectacular dress! It’s made of creamy lace, with a removable liner, a hook-and-eye closure, flattering empire waist, vee neck, and scalloped edges. Id’ even wear this as a beach wedding dress. So pretty!
6 Free People FP-1 Lacey Maxi Slip
This is a versatile maxi look, for layering over short skirts and tanks, or under a sheer maxi dress. It’s made of soft, sheer lace, with black trim and bands in tiers down the skirt. It would even make a pretty beach over-up!
7 Free People Miles of Henley Dress
This ultra-soft 100% pima cotton dress is the ultimate in winter maxi dressing, featuring a half-button Henley front and three neutral colors: black, grey, and olive. Layer over a tank, leggings, tall boots, and a scarf, or with a cardigan and flats.
With so many gorgeous maxis to choose from, there’s bound to be at least one or two that would look great on you! And they’re so easy to wear, because you can layer them so many ways! Which of these maxis do you like best, and how would you wear it? Please let me know!
