6 maxi dresses to maxi-mize your summer

It’s officially summer, and these long, carefree days call for long, carefree dresses.

Known for its one-and-done styling and dramatic panache, the maxi dress has a lengthy history as a perennial favorite in women’s fashion, especially during warm-weather seasons.

Just right for work, weekends, and even weddings, maxi dresses can be transformed with the right shoes and accessories. They look casual with espadrilles and a beachy tote, elegant with strappy sandals and a scarf, and sporty when worn as a cover-up with open-toe slides and swimwear.

By mixing up fabric and design details, each maxi dress sports its own stand-out style. Here’s a look at six breezy summer maxis from our latest of dress collection:


A natural beauty, detailed for day or night, our Santorini Knit Maxi Dress has gorgeous gathering, a blouson drape, and dramatic length.

“I love, love, love this dress! The length is perfect, neck is beautiful, and it is so comfy! Perfect dress to dress up or dress down!”—customer review


A seasonal stunner, our Linen Tank Maxi Dress flatters with its straight fit, angled pockets, and playful side vents.

“My new favorite summer dress! This dress deserves a category of its own — elegant casual. I have gotten lots of compliments. The linen washes wonderfully and still looks just like the photo on me.”—customer review


For maxi-mum allure, our Embroidered-Bodice Knit Maxi Dress is made from jersey-knit organic cotton and TENCEL™ for beautiful drape. It’s finished with slimming seams and bold embroidery for a look that works from day to night.

“This dress is absolutely lovely…super-soft and the drape is beautiful. And the empire waist is very flattering. ”—customer review


Maxi-mize your style with our Pocket-Detail Maxi Dress. It’s a silky-smooth jersey-knit blend of organic cotton and TENCEL™. The flattering shape features a subtle V-neckline, ruching at the waist, and casual slanted pockets.

“I’m loving this dress. I’ve worn it several times since receiving it and it’s incredibly comfortable. The pockets are great!”—customer review


Our Banded-Collar Knit Maxi Dress has a relaxed silhouette with gathers at the banded collar, a slightly blouson waist, and a braided belt with tassels. Poetically soft and well draped in organic cotton and TENCEL™ jersey.

“Comfortable and versatile. This is the perfect dress for dressing up or down. ”—customer review


Ultra-comfy and extra special, our Smocked-Waist Maxi Dress delights in soft organic cotton jersey and silky TENCEL®. Features a slight blouson shape and a flattering smocked waist.

“Wonderful dress! Without a doubt, this has been one of the best dress purchases I have made. It is incredibly soft and comfortable.”—customer review

Though maxi dresses are beloved summer go-to pieces, these versatile styles easily add ethereal beauty to every season.

As temps drop, swap sandals for boots and add cashmere or a classic denim jacket. Mix up your maxi look any time of year by switching up your jewelry and adding a belt.
