Maxi Dresses Are It for 2023, and I Just Found 31 I'm Obsessed With

When it comes to the "lazier" spring or summer days where 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 spring/summer runways, so it's no surprise that the style is already being championed by the fashion set as we head into spring. 

It's started to pop up heavily on the market, as I noticed a variety of top-notch 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.
