Depending on where you’re headed, a maxi dress allows for freedom of movement. This makes it the right choice for spots like the beach.

Nothing much, just a micro skirt

If you are not into skirt suits, the micro mini skirt by itself is a fun way to embrace the trend. It offers a playful approach to the trend and you can balance it out by wearing a long-sleeve top for an air of sophistication.
