Maxi Dresses You'll Want to Wear Everywhere

Maxi dresses are such a great wardrobe addition for all seasons. The flowy, floor-grazing appeal of a maxi dress is undeniable.

So is their extreme comfort, wearable fit that looks good on everybody, and versatility. With the right maxi dress in your closet, you've got a go-to piece that you can easily dress up or down, for daytime style, casual weekends, wedding guest attire, beach vacation dressing, and special evenings out.

Aside from it being a long dress, there are a few other factors that make a maxi dress different from other dress styles. Below, I have outlined the characteristics of maxi dresses.


Maxi dresses are typically flowy. The bodice may be form-fitting, but the skirt is loose and billowy, making it comfortable to wear. Another factor is its overall aesthetic, which leans toward informal versus formal. There are several ways to accessorize and make a maxi dress look and feel fancier, but generally speaking, it’s a design made for time spent in a tropical location.


A maxi dress is among the most versatile types of dresses since you can wear and layer them for different occasions through multiple seasons. For example, an oversized cardigan, moto jacket or cropped denim jacket immediately changes the look and extends the wear. Although other dress lengths offer a similar appeal, there's something about the ethereal, ultra-cool nature of the maxi dress that makes it stand out from a tea-length or a mini dress.



The material is typically silk and lightweight, crepe and cotton are common fabrics used in maxi dress styles. This creates a more laid-back, breezy look than a long evening gown, which is usually made with velvet, satin, or another thicker material.


For so long I felt like maxi dresses were kind of boring. All I could seem to see were basic tank top style dresses in fabrics that were way too thin and way too see-through. But that was about 7 years ago or so, and I’m happy to say they’ve come a long way. I love the options a maxi dress gives women. It can be totally casual and easy or dressed up a bit for a nicer event. It all depends on the accessories, makeup, and how the hair is styled.

I think that a messy bun or ponytail paired with flat sandals and simple jewelry is the perfect casual way to wear a maxi dress. For date night you can add wedges, style your hair down, and find some statement earrings to dress it up a bit more.


Here’s a quick style tips: If you have never worn a Maxi Dress, I suggest starting with a solid color. Wearing a print is fun but the amount of fabric can be overwhelming.

  • Adding a belt breaks up the monotony of an outfit and draws attention to your waist – which makes a dress look more fitted and flattering.

  • Draping a jacket over your shoulders is always a chic move, plus having a jacket with you at an evening event is a smart choice. When it gets chilly, put it on!

  • If you are going to wear stripes, make sure they are vertical. It elongates your line and makes you look taller.

  • You can re-style your maxi dress by layering a knotted shirt to get that maxi skirt look.

A key part of creating maxi dress styles involves having fun with fashion.
