Sundresses and maxi dresses only have a short time left in the spotlight before colder fall weather pushes them aside, so now is that time to embrace the ease of summer dresses and wear them with gusto through the last weeks of summer. We love a good maxi dress for the long weekend, the style says chic and relaxed at the same time since the long skirt is easy and comfortable while entirely elegant. This multicolored maxi is a favorite style from Veronica M with summery halter neck ties and a plunging neckline. The soft draping fabric provides ultimate comfort while bright warm colors liven up this dress in a scattered patchwork print. The orange, purple and green shades in this pattern create a bohemian look that wears well with platform sandals and layered bracelets. Wear this dress for the long weekend as you travel and enjoy your holiday in style.
