With August fast approaching, I find myself reaching for maxi dresses more and more often. Something about this floaty style is just perfect for sticky summer days, and especially so for weekend brunching.
This fuchsia kimono sleeve faux wrap maxi from Lane Bryant is super comfortable on, and is a serious compliment magnet. The lightweight, semi-sheer fabric also makes it perfect for a really hot day, and the partial lining (which is also very light) keeps it from sticking to you in the humidity.
Not every maxi is worth the money, though, so I’ve rounded up 25 of my favorite plus size maxi dresses to shop now. If you want to get a head start on your fall wardrobe, go for dark prints or solid colors that will transition from summer to fall easily just by switching up the accessories (think suede booties instead of sandals).
