Chances are you probably have way too many maxi dresses in your closet to justify buying yet another one, but not so fast. Summer’s sheer bottom maxi dresses–also known as illusion maxi dresses–aren’t just any ol’ maxi. Because the bottom is slightly see-through, they’re way more glam than your ordinary full-length cotton dress. Celebs like Paula Patton, Zoe Saldana and Kourtney Kardashian are wearing them for dressier events like red carpet premieres and church services, which means you can totally wear one on a hot date or for a girl’s night. The sheer bottom adds some serious sex appeal without showing too much skin and lightweight materials are perfect for summer.
