Insomniac Sale Picks: Floaty Non-jersey Maxi Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

KM Crisp requested a few picks for floaty or gauzy non-jersey maxi dresses, so here we go:


Maurice’s Maxi Dress with Lace – was $44, now $35.20
with code 2015CHEER

If you’re going for gauzy, you’ll get lots of pretty white options like this spaghetti-strap maxi with lace insets. This style is actually rayon lined with polyester, which means it might be a bit warmer than cotton but will also wrinkle less. Available in sizes XS – XXL. This similar style comes in sizes 16 – 24. If you prefer cotton, this dress is similar in design, but more of a midi length.

eshakti maxi dress

eShakti Graphic Print Georgette Maxi – was $99.95, now $64.95

eShakti does do quite a few jersey knit maxis, but they also offer pretty printed georgettes like this one. I love the notched neck and wide straps, though I think this frock might look even better with a belt covering the spot where bodice meets skirt. Available in sizes 0 -36W, and you can customize sleeve length, neckline, and hem on this dress. If you don’t dig this dress, do poke around – you’ll find silk, cotton voile, crepe, and poplin maxi dress options.

madewell printed maxi dress

Madewell Aruba Cover-up Maxi Dress – was $110, now $79.99

It’s hard to get floatier than an a-line cotton maxi like this one! This style is cotton, so it’ll breathe beautifully, and I like that it offers coverage while still being breezy. Description says it’s slightly sheer, so clearly designed for beach-wear as the product name indicates, but could be paired with a silk half-slip for weekend wear. Available in sizes XS – XL. This similar style is made from rayon, but available in sizes 14W – 24W.



This lovely navy floral maxi from Ann Taylor comes in 00 – 18, but isn’t currently on sale.

– DKNY has two sexy halter styles with elliptical hems – in black, and a white/red abstract print.

Torrid’s maxis are phenomenal. This tie-dye chiffon maxi is particularly pretty.


Other not-currently-on-sale resources for non-jersey maxi dresses:

  1. Old Navy – Jersey is the mainstay, but look for chiffon options like this one mixed in.
  2. Nordstrom Rack – More than 200 maxis, including this lovely halterneck.
  3. Anthropologie – A stunning selection. Love this watercolor floral.

    I would love love love suggestions for a classic tote THAT ZIPS (that part is really important!). I’m looking for something that is leather or faux leather, and doesn’t look beachy. Thank you!!
