Maxi dresses are my #1 go-to fashion staple year round. They're easy to dress up or down, perfect for just about any occasion (especially for maternity and beyond!) and they are oh so comfy and flattering! I'm always being asked where I buy my maxi dresses, so here is a round up of some of my favorites:
I wore this one for our family photos and it ended up being the perfect dress all winter long. It's nice and thick, so not see-through, and it's a great neutral you can style it in many different ways. I also wore it as part of my Cindy Lou Who costume at Aria's class holiday party! This one is definitely a perfect maternity photo session gown as well and looks lovely paired with a floral headband. It's under $25 and comes in eight other colors with a short sleeve option as well!
I have this maxi dress in all four floral colors! They are perfect for spring time paired with a cardigan or wrap and I usually end up wearing them all summer long with cute floppy beach hats and tote bags. For $15.99-$21.99, how can you not get one in every color?! Even if you're having a stressful crazy Mom day at home (like I am most weekends now!), this dress is my favorite to just throw on and instantly feel 10x more beautiful!
If you love the off-the-shoulder style, this maxi is a must. I wore a dress very similar to this one in light blush pink for most of my pregnancy with Kai and it was perfect for trips to the beach, picnics at the park and brunches out with friends! It's also great if you're trying to cover your upper arms and it gets major bonus points because this one has pockets! It comes in 5 colors and is under $22.
This dress is so flattering! The tie around the waist and v-neck have an instant slimming effect and I just love the shorter 3/4 sleeve. I wore this one in the light blue color for my baby shower and it comes in 10 other colors, including a bright hot pink, red and gold, and it's under $32!
If you're looking for the perfect Mommy & Me look to pair with your maxi dress, here is a selection of twenty different girls maxi dresses, including solids and florals, all under $20! I'll definitely be getting Aria a few of these!
For sizing, be sure to check the sizing charts and read the reviews to see which size will be best for you. I'm 5'2" and order most of my maxi dresses in a size Large or XL.
Happy January, friends! And happy shopping! :)
