Emma Roberts and her chic street style are back to grace us with another trend, and it’s perhaps the most comfortable trend at that: a knit maxi dress. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not always keen on knit maxi dresses, as they feel a little sloppy and shapeless to me, but Roberts’s short-sleeve version with a subtle empire waist feels pretty and polished (especially when paired with ankle boots as opposed to, say, flip-flops).
Oversize baby-doll dresses have certainly been the number one dress trend since last year, but you don’t see maxi-dress iterations as commonly as short ones. Based on the success of Roberts’s outfit, perhaps now you will. Keep scrolling to see how she styled the trend, and shop some of our favorite oversize knit maxi dresses that are as chic as they are comfortable.
