Listen up, maxi-ophiles, have we got the perfect round-up for you: We've found the ultimate must-have maxis to live in all summer long!

Unlike minis, maxis are beloved for their easy, breezy silhouettes and floor-grazing hems that swish with every step. Plus, they inadvertently resolve the issue of risking too much skin exposure. Needless to say, they're perfect for any summer occasion, whether that's picnicking in the park or hitting the shops.

We've come up with an eclectic selection of maxis that will suit everyone's palate. Got a penchant for prints? We've got them all—from the daintiest blooms to the boldest stripes. Others play favorite to a single shade, choosing instead to shine through textured detailing, like pleats or cotton broderie.
