The Style Edit: Maxi Dresses 3 Ways

Move over, winter! We’ve all been anticipating the arrival of spring for many reasons besides the obvious—one of the big ones being the return of airy maxi dresses into our wardrobes. From day to night, the versatile maxi dress is one of those spring closet essentials that we love to throw on for instant style without a ton of fuss.

Below are three great ways to wear the beloved maxi dress for different occasions this season:

Pair a lightweight maxi dress with gladiator sandals for an easy, breezy spring look. Top it off with some color in the form of a floral scarf and grab a straw hat before you head out the door!

The maxi dress is the perfect vacation go-to piece to pack! Wear it over your bathing suit to grab a quick lunch and style it up with a denim jacket and an oversized sun hat for an effortless outfit straight from the beach.

For a unique take on a night-out look, a maxi dress with sheer panels should do the trick. Throw on a tailored blazer over the shoulders to instantly elevate the entire look.

The tribal trend has been around for a while, and it’s steadily gaining popularity as a bold yet wearable option. We love incorporating them into tank tops, swimwear, dresses and even accessories! Whether you opt for a subtle tribal detail, like a tribal-inspired sandal, or go all-out with a head-to-toe tribal ensemble, there’s room for tribal in everyone’s summer wardrobe!

For the guys, we’ve been seeing a resurgence in the whole desert travelerlook—think khakis, lightweight button-up shirts, desert boots, neutral leather sandals and cargo bottoms. We’ve styled them four different ways to show the versatility of this summer look.
