Maxi dresses first came back into style as lightweight, flowy frocks to don in the summer. But these days, you can find a maxi for every season and occasion. And while we’ve got love for hem length all along the height spectrum, we’re here today to make a case for this tried-and-true silhouette by giving you some solid plus-size options to rock all fall long.
One reason to love the maxi dress is its versatility — depending on your styling and accessorizing creativity, the options are endless. You can tie the side of it to make it a midi dress for the day or add a jacket for a layered-up look. When the leaves begin to turn, they’ll play nice with insulating layers like turtlenecks and tights.
Whether you’re looking to round out your assortment of fall wardrobe staples or you just want to beef up your long sundress repertoire, we’ve rounded up some of the best maxi frocks a person could want. Click through the scrumptious sartorial options below, and let us know what your favorite things to wear over fall are in the comments.
