The Best Maxi Dresses That’ll Keep You Stylish While Covered Up

On days when you don’t feel like wearing pants, but also don’t want to look too formal, a maxi dress is your BFF. It gives you comfort and a fun, flirty style without revealing too much skin.

Thinking of adding a new maxi dress to your wardrobe, or buying one for the first time? Check out our recommendations below. With so many styles to consider, you’re bound to find one for every occasion.

While we often see maxi dresses in the spring and summer, you can easily transition them into your fall and winter wear too since they cover up more skin. This one comes in a flattering, faux-wrap style that gives the illusion of a narrower waist. Features like 3/4 sleeves and a thick material make it ideal for staying warm.

You don’t have to go broke dressing up for more formal parties and events. This affordable maxi dress has a sexy neckline and slit and low back. We love that the overall look is balanced out by the length of the dress.

Everyone needs a plain, comfy, jersey-type maxi dress that you can just slip on and head out the door! The gathered waist in this one adds shape, so you’ll feel stylish when wearing this.

Need ideas on what to pack for your next warm and tropical vacay? We suggest this easy, breezy cotton, sleeveless dress with a paisley print. Wear it with a floppy hat, sunglasses and flip flops for the beach, or pair with high-heeled sandals, dangly earrings and a clutch for dinner.
