The #1 Dress Style for Awkward Transitional Weather

Okay, spring may have already arrived, but the weather so often associated with the season seems to have missed the memo (well, at least for now). Transitional weather, no matter who you ask, is a tricky time of year to sort out fashion-wise. While you can always create a foolproof outfit with crafty layering, there are certain pieces that feel as though they were made for these moments. One such example is maxi dresses.

With hems reaching down toward your ankles or even further to the ground, maxi dresses have proven to be the quintessential dress style to wear when it’s not too hot, not too cold, and you need something that feels just right.

We searched high and low for the best maxi dresses to incorporate into your spring wardrobe and pulled them all in one place just for you. Wear them now with a lightweight jacket thrown nonchalantly over your shoulders, and once the temperatures stay firmly in the 70-degree zone, style them on their own with simple sandals.
