THE MAXI Summer-to-Fall Style

Wear now and later

Summer is by far the season I love most, and the maxi dress is my uniform of choice. My favorite ones are those that I know I can wear into fall, with the addition of a leather or denim jacket, and a pair of booties. Easiest, no-brainer outfit ever…

My picks that could be easily layered when the weather cools a bit:

TIE DYE: $176 / $218 / $165 

SOLIDS: $165 / $175 / $118 

STRIPED: $103.60 / $52 / $148 

BOHO: $253 / $132 / $102.50 

OMBRE: $234 / $286 / $298 


What’s your summer go-to?

  1. I love a maxi dress so much, I’d much rather wear one than jeans!! I love the striped and solid ones shown….Great post Erika!!

  2. Maxi dresses have been my summer staple, so I really love the idea of bringing them into fall by adding a few pieces.Your picks are great!!! Especially those gorgeous solids 🙂

  3. I absolutely loooove these dresses, but I only have 2 (that don’t fit very well – haha)! Definitely looking to stash a few more in my closet for this fall! Perfect for Southern California.

  4. I am dying because I saw a silk tie dye one in a store for $250 and couldn’t get it then saw it a week later at Marshall’s for $45 bucks! Love it and could wear it every day…love maxis!
