Maybe it’s because I’m preggo (in case you missed that- I’m a surrogate for my sis and her hubby until May 3), but I think it’s more because most midi/maxi dresses just speak my love language. A dress that can be dressed up or down and often worn across many seasons is worth the moola in my opinion. When I look in my closet, the dress section is “go-to” section to grab-and-go, and therefore, where I go most. Here is a collection of some fab midi/maxi dresses I either have or have my eye on!
Some of my favorite maxi dresses the past few years are still crowd favs each and every time I wear them. Literally, I get stopped multiple times when I am wearing both of these “old” anthropologie dresses. You know what that assures me of… They are worth the splurge! Check out anthro’s current offerings and grab your favorite one or 2 today.
Speaking of anthropologie, these 2 are new additions to my wardrobe and currently available.
Now, I’m not going to lie… I don’t always find things that fit my style and budget at Free People, but I fell in love with this dress a while ago at Evereve and didn’t snatch it up. I haven’t stopped thinking about it, so this time I immediately clicked “add to cart” when it popped back in stock. This does run big, so I suggest sizing down.
Want a maxi you can wear over and over and style many different ways? You have seen me wear this in various colors and seasons. It’s true perfection and the price can’t be beat. This sells out fast, so you don’t want to think too long on it.

A full maxi isn’t for everyone, I get that, and honestly, I love a midi just as much as a maxi. These 2 Good Hart midis have been a crowd favorite and is thankfully still available in XS-XXL (+ they are both under $100). The coral rust color is great year round and y’all, it has pockets! If you aren’t so much a drawstring girl, just tuck them away under a fab belt. The white dress, well, it, my friends is perfection and will take you all the way through summer into fall with a jean jacket.
I can’t talk about midi/maxi dresses without mentioning these 2 “built in bra” options. Yes, comfort to the max (no pun intended) & perfect for everyday wear or even for travel!
I think no matter your height, you can pull off a maxi, just know how to style it and make sure you get your right fit. If you are a bit shorter, you will want a midi/maxi that doesn’t overwhelm you. When in doubt, throw on a denim jacket to narrow in the top or even tie the bottom into a knot on the side or in the middle.
One of the things I love about most maxis, as I mentioned, is the ability to dress them up and down and wear them across multiple seasons. Shoes can make all the difference- here are some of my favorite transitional shoes, and YES, friends, you can indeed wear sneakers with dresses in 2022!
What is your favorite dress style for Summer? I’d love to see what you are wearing and how you are styling your favorites!
