Maxi dresses are a summer staple in any wardrobe, even for us plus size women. They’re perfect for chilly nights after a day in the sun or for those days when your skin is screaming for some relief from the sun.

They’re also dresses that work from morning until evening  – just add accessories to dress them up or down. For daytime pair them with a pair of strappy flats, a large bag to carry your beach goods, and a hat. For evening, sandals with a heel, a paired-down purse, and a wrap to keep you warm makes it the perfect dress for your next cruise, beach vacation, or backyard party.
