Blake Lively is always the epitome of trending styles, whether she’s strolling the streets of New York City with her husband, Ryan Reynolds, or working a red carpet! The Gossip Girl actress was most recently photographed holding hands with her hubby in the TriBeCa neighborhood of NYC while rocking the ultra-feminine Reformation Maegan Linen Dress. The easy, breezy, floral dress hugged Blake’s upper body with its fitted bodice, while the full skirt offered some breathing room and movement. She paired the flirty look with gold Celine Fisherman Sandals and had her long blonde hair loosely pulled back in a ponytail.
A maxi dress like Blake’s can easily be taken from day to night, and always provide maximum comfort throughout the day, which makes them the perfect option for the summer heat. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up several maxi dresses, inspired by Blake’s Reformation maxi, that you can shop to wear all summer long!
1. Vineyard Tiered Maxi Dress
Blake Lively is a bohemian queen with her style, most of the time and the Vineyard Tiered Maxi Dress from Anthropologie is definitely something the actress would have in her closet. This paisley printed breezy and chic dress is the perfect summer pick. Pair it with sandals and a straw hat for a stroll in the sunshine or dress it up with strappy heels for an open-air occasion. $228, anthropologie.com
2. My Sweet Side Pale Blush Tiered Ruffled Maxi Dress
We love that Blake Lively’s Reformation maxi has a structured top and free-flowing skirt, similar to this Lulus number! The My Sweet Side Pale Blush Tiered Ruffled Maxi Dress offers a fitted bodice top with tiers of elastic to the waist for some structure before continuing to a flowy, tiered maxi skirt. This dress is composed of lightweight pleated woven fabric that shapes an elasticized straight neckline and adjustable spaghetti straps. Plus, feminine and flirty ruffles accent the neckline and the skirt hem. $78, lulus.com
3. PRETTYGARDEN Women’s Casual Halter Neck Maxi Dress
This swing A-line maxi dress is the perfect alternative for Blake Lively’s full-skirt maxi dress she wore out in NYC. Light-weight, ultra-feminine and so chic, the PRETTYGARDEN Women’s Casual Halter Neck Maxi Dress is a brand new best-seller on Amazon and comes in 28 different colors. There is no doubt that you might find one, or two, that suits you! Plus, each dress has a super sweet print like polka-dots or florals, that are so in for the summer season. The halter dress features an open-back situation and a tie underneath the chest for some added figure. $40, amazon.com
4. Spaghetti Strap Cut Out Maxi Dress
We loved how Blake Lively’s look above went from a structured bodice to a full, free-flowing skirt, and tried to find you a look for less if you wanted that same vibe. The Spaghetti Strap Cut Out Maxi Dress from NASTYGAL is currently going for $21.50 and has that body-hugging top before a full skirt. The dress also features an open back that can be adjusted and tied. The easy-breezy silhouette and tiered design will make this a go-to in your closet all summer long. $21, nastygal.com
5. ZESICA Women’s Floral Printed Wrap V Neck Maxi Dress
There’s nothing like a wrap dress, and Blake Lively has never shied away from rocking one, especially in her maternity fashion days! This ZESICA Women’s Floral Printed Wrap V Neck Maxi Dress comes in a variety of bright and summery prints that will make you stand out in a crowd! This maxi features a wrap design, a V-neckline, feminine frill hemline, and short butterfly sleeves making it an easy-to-wear statement piece. Pair with a floppy beach hat and strappy gladiator sandals for an ultra-bohemian look. $31, amazon.com
7. Mae Tie Shoulder Floral-Print Maxi Dress
If you’re looking for a little splurge, then we have one of the cutest maxi dresses on the market that is worth every penny! Just like Blake Lively’s structured top and full skirt maxi, the Zimmermann Mae Tie Shoulder Floral-Print Maxi Dress is an empire line sundress featuring self-tie shoulder straps and a tiered, gathered skirt. The dress features a square neckline and smocked back that makes it breathable, even though the top is fitted. Best of all, the print is rich and vibrant and perfect for any summer event! $650, saksfifthavenue.com
