I’ve always loved the idea of maxi dresses but find them difficult to pull off. The length is never quite right on me and the long silhouette can be unflattering on my tall frame. However, this summer I was determined to find a maxi dress that would work on me. Club Monaco’s Laurie dress is the perfect maxi dress for anyone struggling with this trend. It is effortlessly elegant and ridiculously comfortable. It can be dressed up with heels and glam jewelry or ultra casual with a denim jacket and sandals. The soft jersey knit material is virtually wrinkle proof, making it the perfect dress to pack for a summer holiday. I added a belt to mine to break up the long silhouette and brought the length up to mid calf.
