Now that the temps have warmed up and the sun is out, we know you're picnicking at every possible opportunity, and for such an occasion, summer maxi dresses are the way to go. Though you'll have a blanket spread beneath you, jersey knit maxi dresses protect your legs from the itchy grass and allow you to dine al fresco in utmost comfort! Casual maxi dresses are also an obvious go-to for summer evening outfits, for the painted sunset often brings a bit of a cool breeze along with it, and the longer lengths will be appreciated as you gaze up at the stars! These are just two examples of the endless outings for which summer casual maxi dresses are a stylish necessity, but we're sure you can think of more!

Casual maxi dresses can be styled for summer any number of ways, but our favorite is with a summer handbag, statement sunglasses, and some strappy sandals! Not sure where to find such add-ons as these? Start by browsing ModCloth's satchels for one that suits your fancy, as well as a variety of occasions. Then, shop our sunglasses selection-featuring cat eye sunglasses, tortoiseshell shades, and more-and finally, get lost in our summer shoes shop. From block heel sandals and espadrille wedges, to gladiators and flat peep toes, you're sure to find the right footwear to pair with your summer maxi dress obsession!

While some fashionistas lean on cotton sundresses or plus-size rompers to get them through the steamy season in style, you're all about casual summer maxi dresses, and we love you for it! Woven maxi dresses, buttoned frocks, and flowy styles with long skirts are all ultra-easy to wear when the rays come out to play-and just as easy to pair with the lightweight scarves, bold bags, and fabulous flats you love to rock all year long. Continue on with your casual maxi dress streak, girl, it's working for you!
