4 Maxi Dresses That Hide All Sins (Ahem, Summer BBQs)

For every skintight trend, there is one seasonal style that doesn’t require a crash diet. The maxi dress is that trend and we love it. Even if we’ve just missed 6 spin classes in a row, maxis are always flattering, and a great throw-on piece, and these are all under $50. We hope the trend doesn’t go anywhere – because as someone wise we know once said: “The maxi dress hides all sins.”

This Planet Gold Solid Sleeveless maxi dress ($29.99) is the perfect everyday, weekend dress – the color is neutral enough for pretty much any occasion. We like it with wooden bangles or leather flat sandals.

Geometric black and white stripes were huge this season – we especially love them on this Roxy Sunset maxi dress ($49.50).

You’ve got to have a black maxi dress in your arsenal. You will especially love the crochet detail (and price) of this 6 Degrees Maxi Dress with Crochet Neckline ($29.99).

If you need extra coverage at the beach, this Dotti Bandeau Knit maxi dress ($46.20, down from $66.00). The bright color and bandeau neckline are perfect for your July and August beach vacations.
