There's little in way of sartorial substance that makes you feel more elegant than a floor-sweeping maxi dress. As a style that evokes images of grace and opulence, it's no surprise that maxi dresses star as the go-to look for summer wedding guest dresses. From silky slips to bold blooms worn with feminine flats, there's a maxi dress for everyone. And if you're not of supermodel stature, opt for a slightly longer length, just past the ankle, and trust in your footwear for an extra boost.
