Statement Relaxed Fit Dresses For Festival Season

With temperatures soaring and hours of dancing on the agenda, we all need relaxed-fit mini dresses for festival season. Comfortable yet eternally chic, they’re the perfect throw-on-and-go option to keep you cool and stylish from morning until night. For example, the puff-sleeve eyelet romper by Pilcro deserves a top spot in your summer festival lineup. It’s truly the cutest with its adorable puff sleeves, lace-up top, and ruffled waistline. Pair this must-have mini dress with boots or flats depending on your plans for the day. I recommend slipping into this chic yet simple silhouette with the statement Strawberry Fields tall gladiator sandals by Jeffrey Campbell. Then, add accessories and a cross-body bag for hands-free styling. The hammock hobo mini bag by Loewe and some gold jewelry will work perfectly.

Meanwhile, you can never go wrong with a sleek black mini-dress. Therefore, we all need to add the square-neck romper by Mare Mare to our carts. Firstly this gorgeous, flared mini demands attention with a voluminous silhouette. Secondly, the white straps and embroidery detailing give it that coveted festival edge. Grab your aviators, the white Sansa strappy sandals by Chloe, and Gucci’s small Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag for a flawless festival fit this summer.

Comfort is key when it comes to picking out maxi dresses for festival season. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t also prioritize style! Long days, long nights, and the best moments of summer deserve both, and dresses like the Ocean gown by Spell deliver every time.
