I don’t know about you, but the number one item I pack whenever I am going on vacation to a tropical destination has to be a maxi dress. When it comes to travel, there is something to be said about maxi dresses. Maxi dresses are one of my must have pieces when traveling. As much as I love slaying an outfit, I also love the ease a maxi dress offers. When I am on vacation, I try to pack no-brainer outfits, and pack as little as possible. These dresses afford me both. They are easy-breezy and a must have for every tropical vacation. In addition to maxi’s being easy to pack and no-brainer travel items,  I love how you can transform the look of a maxi dress by merely changing your shoes. Both dresses featured in today’s style post work for 3 different functions. Scroll down to see why these dresses work for the beach, a casual meet-up, or dinner during your vacation.

3 ways to max your maxi dress on vacation

1.A day by the water

A maxi can be the perfect cover up to the beach. Because most maxi dresses are easy to wear, they serve as a great option for a cover-up. I would wear both of these dresses to the beach  or a day by the pool because the fabrics are light weight and they go on and off with ease.


By simply pairing your dresses with a cute pair of sandals or even a pair of sneakers, your maxi becomes the perfect option for lunch, exploring your vacation destination or just hanging out. I wore the blue maxi to explore the country side  aka “the village” of Uyo during my trip to Nigeria. I wore the floral maxi to visit the Lekki Conservation Center. Both dresses were extremely comfortable, making my long days with the kids a breeze. Like many, I am allergic to mosquitos, hence when I travel to tropical destinations, I aim to cover as much of my body as possible.  Maxis’ are not just a style choice for me, but a great option for protecting my legs from insect bites while exploring my vacation destination.


Swap your sandals for a pair of heels and you can create the perfect vacation dinner look. By adding a denim jacket, a shawl or changing up your jewelry, you completely transform your look from day to night.

Maxi dresses are extremely versatile and can be worn multiple ways in one season. The beauty about these dresses is that by merely pairing them with boots, and a leather jacket, you can transition them seamlessly into fall
