A couple of years back, maxi dresses were a huge hit. They were the hottest for two or more seasons back that you could see girls and women, including me, dressed in maxi dresses everywhere. Eventually, the trend sizzle because they were seen ubiquitously, and I, for one, got tired of it. Wearing them just became boring.
This summer, however, maxi dresses are making a resurgence thanks to fashionistas and fashion bloggers. What’s more surprising besides their major comeback is that they’ve also become a perennial favorite. So these long dresses are not only being worn during hot days but also even on cold days.
Of course, wearing them in a way that’s appropriate for the season is all a matter of how you style them. That being said, check out these three fun ways style your maxi dresses:
Opt for printed maxi dresses.
If you’re going out for lunch with friends, opt for a colorful, printed dress. The colors can add life to your outfit and can help brighten the mood if you’re feeling down on an overcast day. When it comes to accessories, tone them down a little because you don’t want them to cast a shadow over your lovely dress.
Wear them with heels.
A great way to style your long dress is to polish them with heels, be it wedges, stilettos or pumps. Wearing such with heels can create an illusion of height, which can elongate your body even further. Also, if you’re wearing one to a social event in the evening, add curves by wrapping a belt around your waist.
One way to add glamour to your maxi dress is to accessorize them. This is especially useful if you want to impress people. Of course, this will have to depend on the kind of maxi you’re going to wear. If it’s in a solid color, you can go overboard or keep it simple, like a knotted belt around the waist similar to the image below. If it’s printed in bold colors, a simple necklace or a pair of earrings will do.
Styling your maxi dresses in the appropriate season can be learned through experimentation. Take a good look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself whether what you’re wearing is great for the season and occasion at hand.
