Let’s all take a minute for the maxi dress.
Like its sisters, the midi and the midaxi, the maxi dress is the easiest ensemble to wear this season. Simply pair with white sneaks, Birks, or strappy heels and add some gold jewellery and boom! The simplest summer outfit in all the land.
Maxi dresses are also great dining outfits (and by that we mean you can eat as much pasta as you wish without feeling uncomfortable) and are so comfy they could almost rival the oversized tracksuit you lived in during lockdown 3.0.
The ankle-grazing frock is quite frankly a summer staple and your wardrobe is in dire need of one.
From ASOS to QUIZ, we’ve found the very best maxi dresses on the high-street. Race you to the checkouts…
