If summer had a uniform, it’d be the maxi dress. This trendy, bohemian look is easy to dress up or down. For casual Saturday style, pair a maxi dress with flat sandals and a cotton tote or beach bag. For a night out, or even a summer wedding, dress it up with a pair of sexy heels, layered baubles and an oversized clutch. Of course, the fabric of the dress does matter – stick to silks for evening wear.
I’ve rounded up 26 of my favorite maxi dresses for summer – one for each day left in June! But, if you’re only on the hunt for that special one, my absolute favorites are from Parker, Clover Canyon and Suboo.
