15 Belted Maxi Dresses We're Stocking Up On for Summer

It’s no secret that we love a good maxi dress, no matter the season. However, our love for this wildly flattering hemline grows stronger when summer rolls around because it’s an instant outfit. In the months where heat reigns, there’s no need to stress about layering a turtleneck and leggings under it or a chunky sweater over it, as we simply grab a pair of flats, a woven bag, and we’re good to go. But recently, there’s one maxi dress style we’re stocking up on: the belted maxi dress.

From floral options to solid statement colors, you can wear these waist-cinching numbers at every summer wedding you are attending or when you’re simply grabbing your daily cup of coffee. The best part of them all? Most of the belts are removable, so you can add your rotation of belts into your look if you choose.

But don’t just believe us—scroll down so you can fall in love with this easy silhouette and shop accordingly.
