My Favorite Forever21 Maxi Dresses

I have a tendency to hoard maxi dresses…I’m always worried they’ll go out of style so I stock up when I can!

Jacket / Dress / Wantable Necklace

My current favorite is this Cutout Rose Maxi Dress from Forever21. I can’t help but love the floral print (though I worry that I owned something like this in the late 90s…) and the rayon material is super-soft and comfortable. It also comes in a pretty white print version:

I thought I’d share some of my top maxi dress picks from Forever21 before they sell out. I adore their maxi dresses because they’re under $30 but are so well-made and pretty!

1) Love the bold color and ruffle detail on this blue maxi dress – it also comes in a bright coral.

2) This Salmon Maxi dress is a classic choice – the shade is so flattering and would look amazing paired with gold accessories.

3) This scarf print dress is so bright and vivid – it’s definitely the type of dress you’d pack if you were going on a beach holiday!

4) My last pick is more of a midi dress than a maxi dress – but I had to include it because a white cotton dress is a summer essential!

Which of these dresses is YOUR favorite? Do you hoard maxi dresses too?

DISCLAIMER: I purchased my F21 maxi dress myself.

    Beautiful dress. I also like the blue and the salmon ones, even tho salmon isn't a color I'd personally wear.Alex Funky Jungle – Not a crop top

      Thanks – although I don't like the color name (lol!), Salmon is one of my favourite shades to wear because of my skintone 😉

    I think I'm the last person to try a maxi dress! Every summer I say I'll consider it…but so far I haven't taken the plunge. I do like some of these options, although funny enough, I like the white, non-maxi version the best! :)Gina — On the Daily Express

      Gina – this will be your year of the maxi dress – I just know it ;-P And for less than $30 – you can't go wrong!

      Thanks Kallie! The cropped AE denim jacket works perfectly with nearly all my maxi dresses 😉

    Such a great post! I am a TOTAL hoarder of Maxi dresses and it is my goal to only wear them when I am away on vacation so that I am not worried about different tops and shorts and skirts. All I need are the shoes and accessories. I may have to purchase the white one above, its so pretty and the cutouts are in the perfect spots!

      Ooh – a fellow maxi dress hoarder – yay! The white print dress is so pretty – and I bet it's lined too (since my black version is). It's the perfect summer dress!

    Great post! I love the blue maxi. I've always shied away from maxis because I'm petite and don't feel like they look right on me, not to mention they are always too long. I haven't tried F21's though so it's worth a second chance.

      How tall are you? I'm 5'4 and was happy that I could wear the F21 maxis with flats, so they're not too long 😉

    Maxi dresses are my summer must haves. They're easy to wear, comfy and look instant chic. Love the first one on you =)

      Thanks Sydney – I get so excited when it gets warm out and I can start wearing all my maxis 😉

    Your dress is beautiful I much prefer it in black than the white. Looks great with the denim jacket. Can't believe it's from F21! It looks so expensive!

      Thanks Lorna! My F21 maxi is definitely well-made – it's a great dress for the price 😉

    I love the dark floral dress you have on, its so pretty! I wish F21 maxi dresses fit me better but I always have bad luck for some reason. Too bad because they have such great, affordable options!

    I don't blame you for loving them! They're so effortless but don't *look* lazy or sloppy! Great picks! Love yours so much!Carylee |
