Is there any item of clothing as versatile as the maxi dress? There are so many prints and fabrics
available that there are maxi dresses to suit any age or taste.
They are just so perfect for when the weather isn’t quite as glorious as you hoped or to provide a
real touch of glamour to an occasion. They can hide a multitude of sins and are a great alternative to
bikinis or shorts on the beach while still looking beautifully feminine.
For us curvy girls, the maxi dress can draw in our waist, accentuating our figure and showing off our
shapely hips and thighs without drawing attention to any other lumps and bumps we may worry
For petite ladies, this style of dress can make the body look longer and for slim gals the dress is more
than flattering, with amazing patterns and materials offering a casual or formal look. For red-carpet
style, the maxi dress can make you feel like a star with the confidence to step out in style.
For All Occasions
One of the best things about maxi dresses is their flexibility. Add an oversized floppy hat, a pair of
sunglasses and a large tote bag and you have the perfect outfit for a day at the beach. Replace the
hat with a fascinator, and the bag with a small clutch bag, and throw on a tailored jacket and you
have the perfect wedding wear.
Adding a little denim jacket to your maxi dress with a wedge heel gives off a casual easy-going feel
while a shrug and carefully selected jewellery can provide a more formal look for evening wear. It’s
ideal for maternity wear too, as gentle fabrics can be cooling and many maxi dresses provide plenty
of scope to accommodate a growing bump. The length of the dress also offers a conservative style
for those who are cautious about baring their flesh.
The maxi dress is a wardrobe staple and the addition of a few accessories can make it great for any
occasion. It’s sure to be a summer favourite and seems to be a hit with the celebrities too. And
that means that all you need to ask yourself is: what colours and patterns will you be wearing this
