However, accessories can either make or break the look you're going for.
We asked ModCloth's stylists to pull together three different looks for rocking a maxi dress — whether it's for business, pleasure, or a night out on the town.
Horizon and Shine Dress, ModCloth.com, $54.99
Heading to a party? For a more formal way to don your fave maxi, try a silkier fabric in a solid bright color. The way this dress falls, along with the double side vents on the skirt, make it perfect for an evening affair or daytime wedding! In addition, pair your fab frock with a bold necklace, quirky heels, and a complimentary clutch to create a completely luxe look.
New Port Of Call Skirt, ModCloth.com, $42.99
Who says maxis are just for fun? If you want to rock your favorite summer style in the office as well, try incorporating a maxi skirt with your work staples. Pieces like a blazer, tie neck top, and great structured satchel really give off the professional vibe while helping you keep your summer cool.
Clambake Character Dress, ModCloth.com, $79.99
Look stylish and stay comfortable on your next road trip by sporting a maxi dress. A cotton maxi paired with a scarf will keep you warm on chilly plane or car rides. Add simple accessories like a statement ring and bangles to pull the look together.
