Wearing maxi dresses is a simple task but here we give you ten fabulous ways to jazz your favourites up for a special occasion and to bring you to the realisation that every girl should have an array of such dresses to choose from!
On its own, plain and simple. Let your maxi dress do the talking, if it is beautiful, stylish and flattering then you won’t need to team it with accessories, a glamorous hair do – a bit of body confidence is all you need.
Pick a brightly coloured maxi dress, no matter what the weather is like. Stepping out in a bright colour when the weather is dull is a fantastic way to lift the spirits and stand out from the crowd, and doing the same thing when the sun is shining is a sure-fire way to get in the summer spirits.
Accessorise like mad! If you’ve chosen a very simple t-shirt or vest maxi dress and you’re looking for a way to spruce it up then belts, jewellery, bags, shoes and hats are the way forward – don’t be afraid to layer those bangles, go wild with the belt and don a hat or head band that will transport your maxi dress from wardrobe to festival in one fell swoop.
Put on a cropped jacket. Whether you like the preppy / varsity look, the tailored elegance a cropped blazer brings or the grunge of a tastefully ripped denim jacket, pairing a maxi dress with a cropped jacket has become a classic look and one which is perfect for a chilly summer’s evening and a casual barbeque with friends.
With heels. Top yourself up with a pair of summery wedges or super trendy open toed boots and feel like a goddess in a matter of moments when you step out all tall and willowy in your long, flowing maxi dress. This is the best way to wear your maxi dress if you’re having a body confidence crisis but staying at home in your pjs just isn’t an option.
With trainers – Lily Allen style. The miniature pop star made trainers and ball gowns OK, so now it’s your turn to rebel and see how alive it makes you feel.
With a seriously glamorous up-do, a pair of high heels, a clutch bag and lots of beautiful jewellery. You are now officially ready to hit the town as a starlet – enjoy!
