Here's a simple black maxi dress if you are looking to hop on this latest trend but don't want a bold print or color. The SW Long Dress by C&C California
has layered banding at the V-neck, racer back, and arm openings, ruching at the bust and back, ruching and banding at the empire waist, one inch straps, and 14 inch slits at each side. It is 57 inches long and 100% silk.

The Ruffle Gown by Mason by Michelle Mason
is a dramatic and eye catching look. There are tiers throughout the dress, a scoop neck, shirred elastic banding at the back, and spaghetti straps that cross and tie at the back. It is lined, 60 inches long, 100% silk, and available in black and blush.
If you like ethnic prints, you will love the Joelle Smocked Long Dress by Joie
. This maxi dress has a smocked elastic bodice, beaded drawstring at the top hem, and a lined skirt. It is 50 inches long and available in two colors: bellflower and coffee.

These next two dresses are so similar, we feel they should be written about together. First up is the One Shoulder Rope Dress by T-Bags
. It has gathered elastic banding at the asymmetrical neckline, pleating at the bust, two inch banding at the waist, pleating at the front, slant pockets at the hip, double rope straps at the left shoulder, and a lined bodice. It is 39 inches long.
Then we have the One Shoulder Maxi Dress by T-Bags
, which from first glance looks like a longer version of the One Shoulder Rope Dress. There is pleating at the bust, ruching at the back, ruching and covered elastic banding at the empire waist, knot detail over the shoulder, double satin rope straps over the left shoulder, an unfinished edge at the bottom hem, and a lined bodice. This dress is 58 inches long.

The Halter Long Dress by T-Bags
is extra long, so plan on wearing it with heels. There is ruching at the front, ruched banding at the empire waist, gathered elastic banding at the back, an unfinished bottom hem, and knots at the one inch straps. The bodice is lined, the dress is 60 inches long, and it is available in tomato and black.

We really like the grey and pink color combination on the Antigua Long Dress by Ella Moss
. There is pink floral embroidery at the crossover V-neck, empire waist, and down the skirt, ruching at the waist and bust, smocked panel at the back, and adjustable spaghetti straps. It is also lined and 57 inches long.
We fancy the white and brown colored print of the Albury Shirred Halter Dress by Joie
. This maxi dress has shirring at the scoop neck, gathered elastic banding at the back, seam detail at the bust, and shirred halter straps that tie behind the neck. It is 54 inches long from the shoulder.

We've seen similar dresses from T-Bags recently, but none have been quite like the Long Ruffle Dress
. It has a V-neck, ruched bust and empire waist, tiered body, and gold rope halter ties. It measures 46 inches from the center of the back.

The Deep V Long Dress with Back Loop by ADAM
has a very simple front with a V-neck. But the back is what catches the eye with a deep scoop and an extra long tie that you can style in multiple ways. There is ruching at the shoulders and no sleeves as well. It is lined, 60 inches long, and 100% silk.
