You don't need to be an heiress to sport a glam maxi dress - certainly not with the wide variety of gorgeous, ankle- and floor-skimming cuts available today, all at crazy-affordable prices. Here are a few that won't make a dent in your bank account, thereby leaving you free to save your bucks for things like touristy boardwalk activities, swimsuits and summer festival concert tickets.
Fresh, airy and yellow: those appear to be the prerequisites for the perfect summer dress, and Old Navy happens to be the gem that has us all covered this season. The store's Chiffon Tie-Front Maxi Dress ($19.99) feels decidedly seventies-inspired, yet brings modern chic to the table with its fearless color palette and cinched waist.
Mamas-to-be, we'd never leave you out. Paramount if you're expecting during summer is comfort, comfort, comfort! You can't go wrong with the Merona Maternity Sleeveless Halter Maxi Dress ($29.99). Clearly at the forefront of balmy-weather style, this dress features a trendy high-low hem, extra-soft jersey fabric and a supportive halter top. All practical, all gorgeous.
Clearly taking a more glamorous approach is necessary on certain days, whether you're headed to a little evening get together or just feel like showing off your polished side. This Alejandra Sky Aegina One-Sleeve Maxi Dress ($41.99) is a smart choice, thanks to its sexy single shoulder, draped sleeve and slightly flared hemline. Dress it up with gold accessories for maximum impact.
Taking the LBD to new lengths, the ICE V-Neck Maxi Dress ($40) dresses you right up with its beaded waist and slightly low-cut neckline. Perfect with anything from flip flops (if you're being super casual) to heels for a special occasion, this dresses offers plenty of versatility. You can't go wrong!
