This Summer, mix up your shorts-and-skirts style MO with an easy, breezy maxi dress. Because of its long length and versatility in shape (halterneck, shirtdress, one-shouldered, racerback, and so on), we really can't think of any reasons not to keep these frocks in warm-weather-wardrobe high demand. For daytime, go for bohemian in a chiffon floral-print maxi or opt for a sportier jersey version, then transition your look to evening-wearable by donning a sexier sheer, slit iteration. The key is to find the maxi that shows off and accentuates your best features. We've got 15 options that are at the top of our Summer shopping list and perfect for all your beach adventures, outdoor BBQs, and wedding dates — click through now and shop your favorites.
Colorful maxi dresses are all the rage these days. Here is one, Jonathan Sanders Wyler Maxi Dress, $3,370, that is more evening. Although maxi dresses don't flatter everyone, I love the acid bright colors, the silk chiffon panel down the center and the sleek short sleeves. I'd gladly rock this at a fashion soirée. Would you?
