From mid-calf to floor-length, late summer style is going to the max. Flowing silhouettes, airy fabrics, and statement prints add wow-factor to the mix, making these maxis our favorite look for the season. Explore three of our favorites below, and get the style tips you need to maximize your look with minimum fuss.
Two Tier and Two-Toned:
Keep your look free-spirited yet polished with a printed skirt and solid top, like this hi-lo option from Hutch. The bold colors neatly contrast the fitted bodice, giving you a look that shifts from day to night with ease.
Fit tip: try this silhouette if you’re on the shorter side, for a maxi that isn’t a drag (pun intended).
Work It Out: City Chic Pin Stripe Maxi Dress
Give your workwear a refresh with this City Chic maxi, styled in polished pinstripe crepe. The belted waist ensures a flattering fit, while the surplice neckline easily layers under a tailored jacket. Fit tip: if you’re busty, this wrap neckline is a great option, as the dress provides good coverage and is also easily adjustable.
Maxi-mum style, minimum effort:
A sensual twist on the classic maxi silhouette, London Times takes the on-trend cold shoulder to a new level. The blouson silhouette is universally flattering, while the bold print makes for statement-ready impact. Fit tip: if you are column-shaped (straight up and down, proportionally), try this silhouette to create a shape while staying breezy and cool.
