You may recall I named a black maxi dress as one of my top Summer essentials in this post last week. You may also remember my obsession with this yellow maxi I wore in Palm Springs last month. I always love to stock up on maxi dresses around this time of year and this year is no exception. I think maxi dresses are easily one of the most versatile clothing items for Summer, or even year round, which is why I wanted to talk today about how to style a maxi dress. In the cooler months you can layer boots underneath and a jacket over them. During the Summer, you can dress your maxi down with sneakers for a day of sight seeing on vacation, wear it with sandals for daytime or a casual night out, dress it up with wedges for date night, or even wear it with heels for a Summer wedding. I love the ease of Summer maxi dresses and how many times you can end up wearing them. With our honeymoon just around the corner, I’ve been shopping around for different maxi dresses to bring with me on the trip for easy, effortless outfits. Today, I’m sharing this gorgeous maxi, plus twenty others that will be perfect additions to your wardrobe this season and carry you into the cooler months. I shared neutral, long dresses to wear to Summer weddings a few weeks ago, so today I’ll be focusing on different colors and those that can be dressed down a little more eaisly. Scroll to the end of the post to shop all my top picks!
I loved the fabric of this one, as it only added to the comfort of it. The off the shoulder detail and the slits in the bottom added a little flirty and sexy touch that I also loved. It also made it easier to walk around in it. I wanted to play off the black in the floral print, so I paired this with my fav black pearl sandals, a black belt to accentuate my waist, and pearl statement earrings. I’ve been loving matching my pearl accessories to tie everything together! As I mentioned last week, pearls are one of my Summer essentials and I just can’t get enough. I wore this classic chain bag to tie in the gold from my belt and the little big on my sandals. I also kept on this simple gold choker. I think dainty pieces of jewelry like this one add a simple aspect of effortless style. Plus, I haven’t taken this one off sine I got it! It’s a steal and from an amazing small business. I’ve linked it and the rest of my outfit for you to shop!
As promised, I’ve also included ten other maxi dress options for you! They are in a variety of price ranges and all can be worn so many ways. If you need any help with how to style them for different occasions, please reach out!

Today marks the first day of my Summer vacation! SO excited to have some time to catch up on sleep, errands, blog work, and my to do list before our wedding. I’ll be writing posts ahead of time to ensure there is still new content up on the blog weekly for you all while I’m away! I’m going to start my first day off with extra Maddie snuggles and a workout before getting ready for the day. I have a dress fitting in the afternoon and an event at Rewardstyle tonight, with a few errands to run in between. Hope you are all having a great day so far! XO
PS- I’m on the hunt for some books to order and bring on our honeymoon. Charles just ordered Catch 22, which I’ve always wanted to read, so I’ll be starting that one, but will definitely need more! E-mail, comment, or DM me your recs, please!!
