The maxi dress is possibly the one statement dress that every girl should have in their wardrobe!
Perfect for summer, they’re cool, lightweight and suit any body shape. But what’s the best way to wear them? What do you wear them with? You don’t want to look like you’re wearing too much of one colour.
So here are some ways to wear the Maxi Dress in different scenarios.
1) Casual: shopping, at the park,
If you’re planning on wearing a maxi dress, the denim jacket is a MUST. Apart from protecting your shoulders in the sun, the jacket brings a much more casual look to the dress, incorporating different colours and textures. A different colour jacket will also give a different effect. I’ve selected a light blue washed jacket for a summery, light feel, but if you were to add a dark blue or even black jacket, it would give a more formal effect. The wedges and bag compliment each other due to the straw texture and the light tan colours are softening.
2) Formal: at a wedding, the first date
In this scenario, I’ve decided to select one particular colour from the dress and accent it with matching accessories. The shoes and bag have a very similar texture, which softens the look and adds a ‘glow’. I chose to add a light bolero, rather than a long jacket, to the piece so that it is light and does not swamp the dress by making it look too heavy. The brown belt breaks up the colour brilliantly and defines the waist area. The look is then finished with a pair of sunglasses.
3) Glamorous: at a party, at a bbq
To add a hint of glamour I’ve decided to add a hint of gold. Not only will this reflect the sun and add a ‘sparkle’ to your look, but also gives the impression of elegance and glamour. The long necklace enhances the torso area and makes it took longer, with gold cuffs on the wrists to enhance the length and slenderness of the arms also.
There’s something a little ‘Egyptian Goddess’ about this image and it definitely emanates value and confidence.
