Let’s be serious: Even though it’s officially spring, these less-than-impressive temps aren’t exactly suitable for above-the-knee hemlines. And, even though we’re never afraid to do some pre-emptive warm-weather shopping, sometimes, we want to take home something we can wear now. Case in point: maxi-dresses.
Not only is the longer silhouette wildly flattering (hello, long lines!), but a maxi-dress is an instant outfit — grab a pair of flats, pile on a few bracelets, and you’re good to go! Even better? Because we’ve got your budget in mind, all our picks ring in at less than $100. So, from a breezy, floral option that's perfect for brunch to a waist-cinching number that you can wear to every wedding this season, click through for our favorite wallet-friendly maxis!
