Ask Belle: Cap-Sleeve Maxi Dresses for Summer

Mar 30, 2015

Hi Belle,

I love the look of maxi dresses but am looking for some with cap sleeves. Any suggestions?

-CK

I love a maxi dress.  I can’t wait for summer so I can wear them.  They’re so comfortable, and yet chic at the same time. Cap sleeves aren’t as popular as short sleeves, but I found a few that are worth a look.

Charlotte Russe Cut-Out Maxi Dress ($30)

This dress has a criss-cross open back that’s kind of fun, but the straps are wide enough that you can probably wear a bra.  That’s helpful.

I own this dress in navy.  The side slits keep it comfortable even in the summer heat.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
