20 Cheap Maxi Dresses You Need In Your Closet

In case you haven’t noticed, maxi dresses and skirts have been a massive trend of the past few years. In 2014 and 2015, we saw the rise (and fall) of chevron print and belted waists, paving the way for the sleek silhouettes we have seen so far this year. Now, more than ever, rising trends are built from a recycling of popular styles from the past. The modern maxi, specifically, has found its way to be somewhere between the bohemian silhouettes of the ’70s and the grunge attitude of the ’90s. As the maxi rises from the chevron ashes, there are plenty of cheap maxi dresses out there for you — no matter your personal style.

Edgy Dresses

Fashion bloggers, Instagrammers and supermodels have all taken a cue from the grunge trend of the ’90s by using style to show off their bad sides. With dramatic necklines, dark colors and all-around “IDGAF” vibes, the edgy look has taken on a life of its own in 2016. To rock this style in a maxi dress, find a piece with a unique pattern, dark colors and eye-catching cut outs.



Girly Dresses

Sporting a maxi doesn’t mean you have to go super severe with your look. Light, airy fabrics and gorgeous silhouettes add a feminine touch to this tried-and-true trend.



Boho Dresses

The ’70s revival is so real right now thanks to the massive boom in music festivals. From Coachella to SXSW, flowing silhouettes and embroidered patterns are taking over the fashion scene.




Maxi dresses aren’t normally what come to mind when you think of going to an event or a night out with friends, but an asymmetric silhouette or a dramatic cut will instantly upgrade your night.

Having a few staples in your closet never hurts, does it? Stripes and solids in classic shapes will never go out of style. If you’re feeling adventurous, try pairing a maxi skirt with one of your favorite tops to add a little extra flair to your look.
