Many things make a maxi dress a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. They’re effortless and breezy, making them one of our go-to pieces during the warmer months. What we know today as the maxi dress probably existed before Oscar de la Renta debuted his original design at the 1968 Elizabeth Arden Fashion Show, but it took the stunning designer's beautiful creation being featured in The New York Times to make the dress a full-on trend. 

Designers such as YSL and Dior followed suit and helped make the maxi dress an iconic piece of clothing during the ‘70s. And today, you can spot the floor-length dress everywhere. While some may argue that maxi dresses go in and out of fashion, it’s always maintained a permanent place in our outfit rotation. Ahead, we’ve rounded up 30 maxi dresses you’ll want to wear this season and beyond.

Work-Ready Maxi Dresses

Although most of us aren’t at our offices, we can still get dressed up as if we are. Putting on a maxi dress can also feel like putting on a blanket, which is a fantastic look if you’re trying to stay cozy during those lengthy Zoom meetings.
