Once considered a trend, maxi skirts and dresses have become wardrobe classics. And what’s not to love? They’re generally as easy to wear as a pair of shorts and a tee but look so chic and breezy on hot summer days. With their popularity among women, then, it’s really surprising that maxi dresses for girls have taken so long to show up in stores. Despite their overdue arrival, summer 2014 really seems to be the season of skirts and maxi dresses for girls big and small. For a summer wedding or going to to dinner with the family, they’re the perfect styles when your little one needs to be comfortable but just a little dressed up. In cool woven cottons and light knit fabrications, the styles featured below top my list as some of the season’s best maxi dresses for girls.
