When it comes to the "lazier" spring or summer days when all you want to do is throw on something quick and go, maxi dresses will be your saviors. While I love putting in the effort to create an outfit involving crafty layering, there are moments when I'll come to rely on the foolproof item that is a maxi dress. Not only that, but the maxi length was a major trend on the recent spring/summer runways, so it's no surprise that the style is being championed by the fashion set this spring. (Bye, micro minis!)

It's started to pop up heavily on the market, as I noticed a variety of stellar picks when I searched through all of WWW's favorite retailers. If you want to keep your dress collection up to snuff like me, then you'll be happy to know that I rounded up all my favorite picks for you below. Whether it's a floral number for your beach vacation or a formal maxi for the garden wedding you're going to next month, there's an option among the best maxi dresses for you in this mix.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
