I am not particularly a big fan of maxi dresses. If I do invest in them (I only have 4), they have to be unique in some way. Something I have never seen before and they must cover a multitude of occasions. Brunch, Wedding, Birthday Party, etc. Simply because a Maxi Dress, to me, implies easy to wear. It should be a neutral piece that can save you when you are in a pickle or simply just not in the mood to think about your outfit.
