These are the breezy maxis and midis you need in your life ASAP!

It’s that season again to go hunting for the perfect summer dress. This year, we’re loving a more covered-up approach with longer hemlines that give off a more sophisticated feel. They also happen to make you look a mile long, which is always welcome. So if your vision for the summer includes looking like a lengthy bronzed goddess, read on. 

Here are 8 long dresses you can rock for the summer:

1. Carly Broderie Button Down Dress

Eyelet cuts have the magic to transform any piece into a vision of fresh summertime style. Such is the case with the Carly, a Love Bonito dress done in a lovely vintage-inspired silhouette. Along with the textile and color all wrapped into one feminine package, it becomes a dress made for days under the sun.

2. Palma Midi Dress

Signature summer motifs are never cheesy when done with refined style. Take a look at the Palma by Charina Sarte, which features intricate palm details with strokes of green and pink. Its buttons and strings are also done in stripes of the same tones to match.

3. Paz Midi Dress

Bucolic charm and Scandinavian minimalism meet in the Paz Dress, a mid-length design from Vania Romoff. This piece has the makings of your classic prairie dress with its puffed sleeves and pastel tone, but is given a modern treatment by paring down the details and streamlining the silhouette. Team it with your favorite sandals and you’ve got yourself an effortless summer look.

4. Katerina Dress

Shapeless design has become synonymous to being fashion-forward (we can thank the Olsen Twins for that) and this dress is a summer-friendly iteration. This Lola & Daisies piece creates the waist-obscuring silhouette with a crisp cotton fabric that’s perfect for warmer temperatures. It’s finished off with a bit of femininity in the forms of a pink colorway and gently ruffled straps.

5. Malviya Handblock Printed Bib Dress

There’s something special about garments that are slowly handmade. The Malviya Dress was handblock printed in India, that is, manually stamped with a custom pattern to create the unique print. The textile was then crafted into this billowy summer dress, completed with a charming bib that went through the same process.

6. Lantanas Tier Maxi Dress

The tiered dress silhouette is still riding its wave of popularity, and rightfully so as it's an endlessly comfortable style. Araw adds their touch to this well-loved style through skillfully placed strings that hold up the bodice from the shoulders through the back. It makes for showing just the right amount of skin that you can adjust to your liking.

7. Printed Shirt Dress

When all else fails, reach for a long shirt dress. This is a classic that never goes out of style, with a silhouette that holds as well in the city as it does at the beach. This one from Zara is a step out of the ordinary with its unique print, yet is done in a colorway that makes it easily wearable.
