Fab floor-length dresses for day and night
There is something effortlessly lovely about a floor-length dress. All you have to do is throw one on, add some accessories, and you’re good to go. Since effortless fashion pieces and summer are meant to go hand in hand, we thought we’d share our favorite floor-length dress styles for day and night.
For daytime: a smocked maxi dress
Who doesn’t love a maxi in a bold color or fun print for summer? These are especially great for warm weather because they’re an entire outfit in one, which means you’re less likely to layer, and you can keep cool in turn. If you’re feeling adventurous and don’t mind something statement-making, try wearing JFW’s smocked challis maxi dress, which pairs a strapless style with a bold print in shades of turquoise, purple and blue for a fabulously fun dress. If you want something more subtle, you can try wearing a striped smocked maxi by Sonoma Life + Style. The spaghetti straps make this dress fuss-free and perfect for casual daytime wear. The navy and white stripes are on-trend, but the neutral colors and classic pattern make this dress timeless, so you can still wear it long after the nautical trend dies down.
When the sun goes down: mesh gown
If your goal for nighttime is to wear something a little more interesting than a classic – and dare we say it, somewhat safe and boring – LBD, try taking a look at mesh skirts and dresses. A floor-length gown with a mesh skirt is a great nighttime option because these are flowy, thanks to the lightweight mesh. For a bold look, keep an eye out for the embellished pleated bodice mesh gown by Adrianna Papell. This gown offers an eye-catching combination of a beautiful forest green with pretty pleats starting at the waist and a beautifully embellished center seam.
