With maxidresses come effortless ease and elegant allure. A full-length frock that hovers slightly above ground is a no-brainer when it comes to summer style. And surely a floaty floor-skimming dress will be the only thing you want to wear when it’s too hot for clothes.
Thanks to the versatile polish lent by their length, summer maxidresses can bring you from beach days to summer soirées with no thought required. You could just as easily wear the same dress to brunch, with lace-up flat sandals or sneakers, as you could to a wedding with block heels or espadrilles.
And within the summer maxidress umbrella are options for every style and aesthetic—even for the non-dress girls! There are drop waist silhouettes in neutral colors for those who lean on the minimalist side, and floral and printed maxis for those who gravitate to the feminine and flirty. As far as silhouettes and straps go, the halter top and cutout style is having its moment in the sun.
No matter your summer plans or calendar of occasions, here are 21 floor-length summer maxidresses to flaunt all summer long.
