That really icky feeling when the subway seat meets your bare legs is one we actively avoid during the summer. But, feeling like you're suffocating in longer hemlines that don't breathe? That's just as bad. Summer dressing doesn't have to be an either/or situation, though — you can have your breeze and sit, sans ick, too.
The answer? The maxi-dress. Believe it or not, these full-length frocks can be just as breezy and breathable as your minis and short shorts. So, we're sharing 15 choice picks for work, nights out, and then some, straight ahead. Bonus: They'll even come in handy on those days when you forget to shave your legs. Talk about wins all around.
