Many women still associate long dresses with dressy, formal occasions. However, I promise, wearing a maxi dress won’t hurt your fashion repertoire. Indeed! A long dress is elegant, comfy and chic but to look stylish in longer hems without projecting any signs of frumpiness, solely depends on how you style it. Plus, from gypsy goddess, floral truster, kimono queen , to mesh and striped Victorian inspired or velvet lady, you’ll need to work extra on selecting the right style for your body figure, scale and height. With the right accessories, you can go from sleek and classy to trendy and chic.
Remember, it’s easy, breezy,and comfy-chic. Which is why the maxi dress is the dress of summer. For instance, pairing it with the most eccentric printed slippers and you’re then ready for the beach or pool, if you upgrade to metallic or leather flat sandals, you’re ready for brunch, shopping with your fashionista twin, or birthday party. If you go for wedge sandals, you’re dressing it up for a summer soiree. In fact, not only is the maxi dress all kinds of fun to wear, but this fancy floor-grazer can work for almost any occasion. From chic city wedding ceremonies, long days spent on the beach to smart shirt-types perfectly suited to the office, the maxi dress is without a doubt the most versatile dress out there. Therefore, during summer spent in the city, choose fun flouncy bohemian fabrics or pretty botanical floral prints and style with a low heel suede sandal or lace-up leather flats.
For glitzy summer evening affairs, they call for something spectacular, and that something is usually a maxi dress. So, go for a black slinky dress. Dark neutrals and colors such as black, chocolate brown, deep plums and green will make you look taller. You can therefore, keep a breezy style grounded by pairing with platforms. Another option is to sling on a tough-looking leather jacket and a pair of well lace up sneakers and you’ve got yourself the perfect off-duty outfit. Length is key here when wearing yours with trainers, and should sit just below the ankle. Regarding accessories, complete your look with a cool clutch bag and statement sunnies! In general, using accessories such as jewelry, scarves and shoes are the best way to create various fashion looks with any basic long dress. While, pearls and crystals turns up the glam-factor, beads and hemp will infuse a casual bohemian vibe to your outfit. However, interesting accessories take a simple maxi dress from ho-hum to head-turning such as the classic choker necklace !
