12 BEAUTIFUL Summer Maxi Dresses You’ll Love!

Simply beautiful maxi dresses

When it comes to packing for a beach vacation or summer vacation, maxi dresses are usually at the top of my list! Easy-breezy maxi dresses are a perfect one-time outfit. You look pulled together and they are quite effortless. I especially love dresses that can double as a beach cover! BUT, maxi dresses aren’t just for holidays. They’re great for BBQs, showers, dining out…all of the above. You can easily dress them up for a night out with a clutch bag, strappy sandals and a pair of statement earrings or wear a comfy pair of flip flops and a woven bag… the same dress can be so versatile! Keep scrolling for a pair I’ve got my eye on that would be perfect for casual and dressy, spring and summer occasions…AND definitely a beach getaway.

If you’re planning a summer vacation, here’s my favorite (SEXY) swimsuits for women 40+ and some great cover-ups here.

Beach Time No Brainer

This strapless, mesh-like dress from Free People pretty much screams beach vacation. I love the strappy back detail and the smocked waist (flattering!) It comes in 4 colors including a lovely light lavender and it’s very affordable.


female stunner

This Staud dress is just so gorgeous! It combines 2 trends: color blocking and cutouts. Note that the cutouts sit quite high on the rib cage (not on the stomach), which is a very flattering part of the woman’s body. The full skirt offsets the sexy neckline and the color combination is stunning.


Goddess Dress

Maybe it’s the strappy one-shoulder detail, but this dress reminds me of a Greek goddess. The lightweight material is perfect for warm days and the straps are adjustable so you get that perfect fit. It sells out quickly, so I’ve attached another similar one-shoulder option just in case!


Exquisite cover up

This is one of those maxis that you can wear to the beach or pool with flip flops and a swimsuit and then dress it up for dinner with a pair of wedges. It’s pure, which is great on the beach! But for dinner, you can add coverage by wearing a black (full or half) slip underneath. It also comes in white.


More coverage

This Ulla Johnson dress is great if you’re looking for a little more coverage or sun protection. It has tie details at the neck, waist and sleeves so you can customize the fit. The light puffed sleeves in combination with the tightened waist give the illusion of that coveted hourglass shape!


Maxi for all purposes

When I talk about one-off maxi dresses, this one pretty much takes the cake. It’s incredibly versatile! It is stylish and sophisticated, but can also be beachy depending on the accessories you want to combine with it. Roll up the sleeves and release the buttons for perfect poolside coverage.



Okay, this is a splurge, but the pattern and design are just SO pretty! The volume of the light puff sleeve and skirt is offset by the strategic cut-outs at the waist. I usually don’t like linen, but the pattern in the dress should mask any wrinkles. I also love the sweetheart neckline because it looks good on everyone. It’s a holiday-ready showstopper!


Beautiful drape

Rococo Sand is one of my favorite cover up brands, but their maxi dresses are just as special. This one is super lightweight and has these pure metallic fibers woven all over. It is feminine and tough but also very elegant.


Affordable and sexy

Remember the Free People bralette I wear in the summer under my meshy white button-up and off-the-shoulder sweaters? This is the dress version of that bralette. It sure is sexy! The fuller skirt offsets the strappy and appliqué bodice so you don’t feel too exposed… while looking like a total smoke show. Style it with a denim jacket or a cool white blazer for extra coverage.


Summer Misa Dress

I recently bought a Misa dress and absolutely love it… But now I’m looking forward to this lighter color for the summer! If you don’t like your arms, this one offers a little coverage, but still keeps you cool in hot weather. Because of the low back you should wear nippies or a bralette as I mention in #9.


Try The Trend!

In case you didn’t already know… I’m a big fan of the cutout trend! With this dress you can try the trend, but because the cut is so small, you only show a little bit of skin. It’s a simple dress with nice details and… it costs less than $100.


best for last

I love ALL of these dresses, but there’s just something about a gorgeous green dress that’s really hard to pass up! When you add in keyhole detail, cutouts AND a beautiful pattern like this, it’s the trifecta of maxi dresses.
