When it comes to packing light and treating your bank account kindly this summer (so you can indulge in more plane tickets, of course), turn to the maxi dress. From a city meeting – paired with a fitted blazer – to a sunset cocktail on the beach, they are versatile and a quick trick to feel elegant even when jet-lagged or burned out by your grind. Add in their ability to fit into the corner of any suitcase, and they are the perfect dress style for travel.
I’m headed to Germany and Italy in a couple days and have already packed in a few of these into my carry-on…and stuffed into shoes (don’t judge). There are days where I honestly just want to get out and explore without worrying too much about accessorizing and matching, which is what I love most about a good maxi dress: they are the statement.
I rounded up 20 of my favorite breezy, feminine and travel-perfect maxi dresses that will light up your Instagram and boost your style confidence whether abroad or in your own city running errands. For the girl on a budget, these won’t hurt. Happy shopping, jetsetters xx
