Maxi Dresses Are It For 2022, And I Just Found 30 I’m Obsessed With

When it comes to the “lazier” spring or summer days where all you want to do is throw on something quick and go—maxi dresses will be your savior. While I love putting in the effort to create an outfit involving crafty layering, there’s moments where you’ll come to rely on the foolproof item that is a maxi dress. Not only that, but the maxi length was a major trend on the S/S 22 runways, so it’s no surprise that the style is already being championed by the fashion set as we head into spring. 

It’s already started to pop up heavily on the market, as I noticed a variety of top-notch picks when I searched through all of WWW’s favorite retailers. If you want to keep your dress collection up to snuff like me, then you’ll be happy to know that I rounded up all my favorite picks for you below. Whether it’s a floral number for your beach vacation or a formal maxi for  the garden wedding you’re going to next month—there’s an option for you in this mix. Keep scrolling to find your maxi dress pick.
