Why we love it: Maxi dresses have become our go-to, thanks to their easy and universally flattering silhouettes. With the right fit and embellishments, they can transition seamlessly from day to night, event to event. We also love that their longer length means we can get away with wearing them to work.
Best for: All body types. Maxi dresses work on everyone — it's all about finding the right fit for your body. If you want to stay covered up on top, look for long-sleeved styles (like Rachel Zoe's). For showing off curves, opt for a fitted style, and if you're looking to flatter an hourglass shape, find a dress that cinches the waist and floats away from the body.
