The perfect style for the girl who needs an easy, chic outfit.

Maxi dresses are a summer necessity—they help make the best of even the slightest breeze during the most uncomfortable summer heat, and shade your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Breathable, airy fabrics are the key to keeping your cool while making a fashion statement.

Whether you’re zipping over to the grocery store or attending a beachside bash, maxi dresses are a simple way to pull an outfit together without doing too much work—think of them as a one-step ensemble. Most maxi styles can be dressed up or down: wear them with statement earrings for cocktails in the evening, or with a simple bag and straw hat for a relaxed weekend look. Pack one in your suitcase for all of your summer travels (you’ll be amazed at how little room they take up, and how much versatility they provide).
