26 Best Long Dresses for Women—From Beachy Maxis to Floor-Skimming Frocks


Photographed by Cass Bird, Vogue, May 2015

Summer is undoubtedly the season of dresses, and as the hottest months are upon us, long dresses for women are a wardrobe godsend for easy, breezy wearability on those scorching days ahead. Long dresses offer the coverage and comfort a mini dress can’t provide, and can be worn in almost any social setting, depending on the fit and fabric. Sun protection is also a plus to a longer hemline, especially when you grab something with sleeves (which also proves useful while you are in and out of highly air conditioned spaces all day). Functionality aside, of course the best part of long dresses is their stylish nature, and endless options. 

From ankle to maxi lengths, you’ll find romantic styles for your next wedding weekend getaway in the form of slinky satin slips for evening or floral dresses for the post-nuptials brunch. If you are packing for vacation, beach-ready styles, like knitted tank dresses or printed cotton kaftans, will take you from cabanas to cocktails in a flash. And don’t forget to keep in mind the versatility of a long dress, that can be styled with sandals and sunhat now, but seamlessly transition to Fall when the temperatures start to dip, with an oversized knit, blazer and knee high boots.  

Below, shop 21 long dresses for women for every event, now through Fall.

  • Altuzarra Seaside striped maxi dress

    This tie-dye, shibori-inspired design is simple enough for daytime affairs when paired with flat sandals, but dressy enough for evenings with a platform pump.

  • Khaite Bridgit ruched maxi dress

    Have a special event to attend? This white dress will keep you cool beneath the sun’s rays yet still sophisticated due to the subtle draping.

  • Chloé cutout crochet-trimmed maxi dress

    Delicate crochet trim makes this cutout number a cool take on the tank dress. Layer with a turtleneck and knee high boots when the temps start to turn.
