Maxi dresses: Why wear them and how to style them

Maxi dresses have become a must-have wardrobe item since they arrived two seasons ago.

It is a misconception that these dresses only suit model-like figures. To carry it well, it is important to pick the right one and to style it in a way to compliment your figure.

Here is a summary on why a maxi dress is a key item in your closet and how you can work it into your style:

In this occasion, I wore my maxi dress casually for a morning outing. I specifically love this one because it is a one-color piece that gives a lot of strength to my outfit, allowing me to match it with anything. The color also beautifully compliments a tanned look, which is perfect when out enjoying the sun.

Add a touch of glamour to your outfit by styling it with super chic accessories to get a more sophisticated overall look while keeping it casual. Put on a pair of heels and heavy makeup to wear it up.

Ready for a night-out!

Maxi dresses are perfect for all body types for two reasons:

  1. They do not highlight the silhouette. Instead, they draw attention to body shape, giving off a flattering effect.
  2. Given their length, maxi dresses slim down the silhouette. If your piece has a belt or a cut around the waist, it serves you even better. This cut will make your waist smaller and your legs longer. So, it makes me look taller and not so petite, right? My height is only 158 cm.

And now, are you ready for your next purchase?
