When I saw the Boden summer catalog, I immediately fell in love with the Maya Maxi Dress. It looks effortless, but still has tons of visual interest. I love how the model has added only sandals and a floppy hat, which lets the pattern take center stage. Last week I ordered the dress during Boden's 40% off dresses sale, but I didn't want to get my hopes up too high. Well, it just arrived this morning and I can say that it exceeds all expectations! Available in regular, long, and petite lengths and in 4 color options (2 of which are solids), this is the must-have dress of the season.
Although it is hard to see in the full-length photo, underneath the bust line there is a band with great detailing that helps define the waist and give the maxi dress some structure. The photo below highlights that detailing and also shows another color option. (The solid colors available are black and teal.)
Not sure when you would have occasion to wear it? A maxi dress is the perfect piece for street festivals, outdoor concerts, dinners on the patio, and evening walks. For a dressier look, add a couple bangle bracelets and a metallic sandal. If you have a vacation planned, this is a great option to pack because it can effortlessly transition from daytime to dinner. The jersey fabric has some stretch to it and it is machine washable making it the perfect intersection of flattering fit and no-fuss maintenance.
Like the dress as much as I do? Boden is having a 30% off sale until midnight on Friday so it is the perfect time to update your wardrobe with a stylish piece that will keep you cool all summer long. The Maya Maxi Dress can be found here.
