The 23 New Maxi Dresses to Take You From Summer Through Fall


Like a Sunday afternooon, the beginning of August is always a little bittersweet. Even though it’s still warm outside, fall is just that one step closer than before. And there’s a similar anxiety that strikes fashion lovers hard during this time of the year. What are the key pieces to purchase right now when it’s not cold enough (and, let’s face it, too depressing) to think about coats, but also with not enough summer left to buy go out in search, of say, a head-to-toe beach look. That’s where the maxi dress comes in. This classic is light and flowy enough for warm days, but it’s also a great choice for cooler afternoons (and it happens to look great with the right jacket!). From edgy asymmetric styles to the classic and feminine A-line, these 23 maxi dresses can be worn right now, and will be in style all the way through the end of fall.
