Beautiful Long Dresses for Women with Comfort and Style

Short dresses are popular, but long dresses are often overlooked. Don't miss your chance to look great in a long dress!

For casual occasions, wear a maxi dress. These long flowing dresses are comfortable and are ideal for warm weather. They come in solid colors, but you can have fun with prints and geometric patterns. A floral look will be great as you're strolling along a beach in your bare feet. If your style is a little more boho chic, go with something that boasts fun shapes.

Maxi Dress with Sleeves: To Sleeve or Not to Sleeve?

How do you want to look on top? Halter maxi dresses and cold shoulder dresses will show off your shoulders, or you can go with classic tank-style straps. Of course, not all maxi dresses are sleeveless. Maxi dresses with sleeves are always a hit, and they come in a variety of sleeve-lengths, but if you decide to go sleeveless, pick out a lightweight crocheted shawl or a pashmina wrap to give you extra warmth on windy evenings if you need it – and some maxi dresses boast fun accents and features, like a high-low hemline, or embroidered beads.

Evening Gowns for Special Occasions

Maxi dresses aren't the only long dresses that you need to add to your wardrobe, though. When a special event comes up, like a wedding or a formal holiday party, you'll need an evening gown. These elegant dresses truly make an impression. They come in rich colors, and they sparkle with amazing accents and luxurious lace. We also carry a variety of church dresses to round out your wardrobe.

Choose an evening gown with long sleeves and a bodycon shape to show off your figure without showing a lot of skin. Alternatively, wear an off-the-shoulder, long evening gown or something with a lower neckline that will give you the chance to show off your favorite necklace. To showcase your fabulous shoes, choose an evening gown with a slit in the side. Have a tiny waist? Find one with an empire waistline or a wrap-style bodice that will accentuate your beautiful curves.

Accessories Make the Look

Whatever type of long dress you decide to wear, complement it with the right accessories. A beautiful clutch will go with your evening gown, whereas a satchel or a bucket bag is casual enough to go with a maxi dress and big enough to hold all your essentials.
