It’s the season for easy breezy vacation style! We’ve got a round up of twenty beautiful summer maxi dresses – get ready to update your travel wardrobe with these versatile, pretty styles!


Summer Maxi Dresses




Sleeveless Maxi Dress with Pockets




Rayon is my favorite fabric for hot weather travel. It’s ultra-light, wrinkle-resistant, packs small, feels comfortable in the heat, and is quick-dry. It’s often available in lovely prints to add life to your travel wardrobe. The above selection features our top picks for summer maxi dresses this season.

Sleeveless Casual Summer Long Dress




My second favorite fabric for warm vacations is jersey (or modal). It’s so soft and comfortable. Modal items tend to come in solid colors so I have several basics in this fabric.

It’s my go-to fabric whenever I want to throw on something and go.

Because jersey is thicker than rayon and tends to take up slightly more space in my suitcase, I avoid packing more than one or two items in this fabric. It’s so worth it, though!


For lazy-girl style I just add a hat and feel vacation-ready. Check out more lazy-girl travel accessory hacks!




Sexy Blackless Long Dresses




As someone who can’t go braless EVER I always longed for the beautiful, backless maxi dress styles. The past couple of years it seems that backless tops and dresses have been everywhere, which actually turned out to be a great thing because now there are more undergarment options, allowing more women to wear them.

Pair one of these pretty items (over your bra) and open up a whole new world of dress possibilities!

  • Lace Bralettes
  • Seamless Tube Bra
  • Low Back Bra Strap Extender


And if you’ve never gotten sized, do it! Find out why getting a bra fitting was an absolute game changer for my travel wardrobe!




Hi Low Long Maxi Dress


High Low


I’m a bit partial to high low styles. At 5’2”, some maxi dresses can drown me but a high low gives me the opportunity to enjoy a longer length while still elongating my body.

Plus, the cut of the hem tends to enhance the air flow while you’re walking, which makes extreme heats much more bearable!

Floral Print V Neck Flare Maxi Dress


Extended Sizes


I get many requests for sizing-specific posts, so I picked out a few styles that specifically offered a wider variety in sizing. These dresses are beautiful!


The key to packing light is to use packing cubes to compress your clothing as shown in this video!
