The elegant maxi dress has come in and out of fashion over the years, and is having another moment in the spotlight thanks to comfier and more modest dressing throughout global lockdowns. Here are our favourite brands making more sustainable maxi dresses you’ll love.
Sustainable maxi dresses for your collection
While hemlines have gone up and down throughout history thanks to trends and economic necessity, the current climate sees a lot of diversity in how long we wear our dresses. But one versatile style that has made a comeback in recent years is the maxi dress, coinciding with the viral Cottagecore aesthetic through lockdown that generally favours a more modest approach to dressing. Easy on its own for a casual vibe or accessorised for more formal occasions, and layerable with a big coat and boots in the colder months, the maxi dress is versatile and flattering on a lot of body types. Ideally it should hit around ankle length, and of course, sustainable maxi dresses are a given.
Whether you prefer a classic maxi dress like the one from LANIUS (Germany), an inclusively-sized boho option from Christy Dawn (US), or a Cherry red skivvy dress from A.BCH (Australia), we’ve got you covered all the way down.
