10 Ruffled Dresses with Max Style, Zero Effort
Loose, swingy maxi dresses are a breath of fresh air in your summer wardrobe. They’re packable (who can even tell if they’re wrinkled?), they’re flattering (how lean you look under those layers) and they draw admiring looks from all the other women who opted for a skinny party dress or pencil jeans instead of a feminine, flouncy number. Which one suits you?
