Maxi Summer Weekend Dresses You Need To Own

When it comes to summer weekend dresses for 2023, we’re all about maxi-length silhouettes we can wear on repeat. Firstly, they look and feel instantly stylish and put together the moment you slip them on. Secondly, they’re eternally versatile from day to night – and super comfortable too! Therefore, we highly recommend getting your hands on the Onto The Next slip dress by PF One. We adore everything about this dress from the chic square neckline and wide shoulder straps to the relaxed fit that goes with everything from sandals to sneakers.

Meanwhile, speaking of dresses that never go out of style, the Sweetheart flutter-sleeve dress by Pilcro is the denim dress we’ve been waiting for! Initially, we fell head over heels for the ruffled straps and adorable button-down fastenings. Next, we couldn’t get enough of the perfectly designed shirred back and A-line silhouette. Both of which are as comfortable as they are flattering. So, go ahead and style yours with flat sandals for low-key plans. Then, simply add wedge heels for casual summer soirées, garden parties, and Sunday brunches.

Laid Back Summer Weekend Dresses To Wear All Season Long

If like us you’re in the market for summer weekend dresses you can wear proudly on repeat, you’ve come to the right place. Firstly, we highly recommend the black Cassandra maxi dress by Maeve. Firstly, it has one of the most stunning prints we’ve seen on any summer dress this year. Secondly, we love the moody color palette that challenges the usual pastel and ice cream hues you usually see this time of year. Finally, the relaxed silhouette and voluminous ruffle sleeves are a match made in heaven. They also elevate the oversized tropical print perfectly!

Additionally, we think everyone needs a dress like the Constantine jersey maxi by The Row in their closet. This dress will not only make you feel your sleekest most stylish self every time you wear it. It will also go with every pair of flats and casual summer heels you own. For example, team yours with simple, flat leather sandals or pumps during the day. Then, opt for low heels for an impromptu sunset dinner date or drinks!
