The maxi dress is one of the most versatile garments in any wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down, worn with any style of shoe, and looks great with coordinated accessories.
The type of occasion or event will determine how you wear your dress; for example, if you are meeting friends for a picnic or afternoon drink on a sunny weekend afternoon, wear it with some fashion trainers and a pair of statement sunglasses for the perfect casual look.
With recent temperature breaking records all over the country, barbecue lovers are hoping for another great summer, so make sure your wardrobe is ready for lots of outdoor events.
If you work in an office, a grey maxi dress is perfect. Paired with some wedge sandals, summer makeup and groomed hair and nails, this can easily pass as appropriate work attire. Worn in a neutral colour, a grey maxi dress can look professional and stylish and make you feel comfortable all day long.
Not only is the maxi dress the perfect dress to pack for your summer holiday but also it is perfect to wear when travelling. It is cool, comfortable and always looks good. The maxi dress is also great to pack in your beach bag. After a day spent sunbathing, cool off in the water, slip on your maxi dress and you are ready for cocktails at the bar.
Whatever the occasion, a maxi dress can be worn with confidence. Whether you are dancing the night away with the girls or celebrating a friend’s wedding, a maxi dress will look good and make you stand out from the crowd. Worn with large fashionable hooped earrings and summer heels, this look is perfect partywear for the season.
The maxi dress has come a long way. Besides the traditional styles, many are now available with thigh splits, in off-the-shoulder styles and with plunging necklines. Whatever your style, there will be a maxi dress to match. A maxi dress in a figure-hugging jersey fabric means it never creases and can easily be put on after a workout at the gym or for a quick outfit change on the go.
For an up-to-the-minute look, go for bold stripes, sliders and a high swinging ponytail.
