The maxi dress and maxi skirt are in fashion full swing for Spring and Summer of 2014 – and truth be told they have been trending for some time now since appearing on runways in 2010 and 2011!
We love the simple elegance of a maxi dress, but also its versatility and how easily it can go from day to night.
There are many different ways to wear a maxi dress to achieve the right look. Here are some tips:
There is always a specific silhouette of a dress that works best for your body. (eg. Empire waist, straight cut etc.) Experiment with different styles to find the best fit, or perhaps add a belt to better define your waist.
The maxi dress is so versatile that it can lend itself for semi-formal wear for the office or for school. Just add a blazer, and add dressier shoes to the look – don’t forget some statement jewelry!
3. Be creative!
You can transform a maxi dress into a skirt by layering a blouse or shirt over top! Be sure though that the blouse or shirt is fitted to prevent a baggy or sloppy look.
4. Back to basics!
You can never go wrong wearing a maxi dress with a jean jacket! It makes for a trendy and chic look, and is perfect for casual wear!
5. Simplicity is key!
The great thing also about a maxi dress is while you can play with it by adding other elements, you can also wear it as is and be as elegant as ever! Just add the right pair of heels or sandals, put on some great jewellery and put up you hair to show off the dress – and presto!
