I will agree that sometimes getting dressed up can be a fun thing to do. Conceptualizing a cute outfit for a specific event definitely has its charms, but getting ready for work every single morning can be frustrating, time-consuming, and downright depressing.

Using all my creative energy at the bright and early hour of 6:30 a.m. to choose the right pair of trousers to pair with a printed blouse isn’t always a walk in the park. Not to mention accessorizing, which makes the entire task that much more burdensome. Enter the maxi dress!

A maxi dress is a solution to all of my dressing woes. It is literally one article of clothing I can throw over my head before I groggily hunt for the coffee grounds. Once I’m sufficiently caffeinated, I can begin to think about a few simple accessories to pair with this minimalist item that will help me achieve the vibe I’m going for on any particular day.

It also works as a fantastic maternity option for growing bellies!

If I want to dress down, I can opt for a pair of gold flats and a chunky necklace. If I want to dress my maxi up with a blazer and wedge heels, there’s no stress in that either! The best thing about a maxi dress like this one is that it is ultimately the most versatile article of clothing any woman will ever own, and it literally feels like you’re wearing pajamas!

Shop this easy maxi dress on Amazon in a variety of colors and sizes. Prices range from $17.99 to $23.99.
