Three Ways To Wear Your Maxi Dress

maxi dresses love

The maxi dress has become a must-have piece in your wardrobe because it’s perfectly suited to every occasion and every body shape. Whether your dress has straps or is strapless there are many ways you can wear it and understanding these different styles will help you maximise the appeal of your maxi!

1. Strapless Maxi Dress

Dresses are made to impress and you will certainly impress a few people when you wear a maxi. Strapless maxi dresses are suitable for everyone but more so for those who are lucky enough to be petite.
By choosing a well cut style and by choosing a dress that is snug and tight you can show off your figure perfectly. Choosing floral prints or light neutral colours can elongate your body and make you look taller whilst embracing the current fashion trends.

2. Maxi Dress with Straps

You will never be short of attention when you are wearing a maxi dress. The hem line flowing just about your feet and the back of the dress floating behind you as you glide across a room will make you feel like a million dollars.
After all, everyone deserves to look and feel their best and maxi dresses are the perfect way for you to achieve this. For women who have larger frames, the maxi dress with straps is perfect. If you decide to go for a wider strap then you can emphasise your narrow shoulders and upper body- perfect for long nights by the beach when on holiday.

3. Accessorise your Maxi Dress

No dress is complete until you have added a few accessories to it. Although the dress itself will be stunning you want to add that extra touch and how you do this will affect the overall appearance of your outfit.
First things first, if the dress is too big around your waist then grab a belt. By putting the belt either in the smallest part of your waist or just below your bust line you can accentuate your best assets and make yourself appear taller and slimmer whilst achieving the chic and sophisticated look of a fashionista.

In terms of shoes, flat flip flops are perfect for those after a casual look whilst heels are ideal for those planning to wear their maxi on a night out. Jewellery can be as bold or as subtle as you like but remember to match it with the style of maxi you are wearing. Those with bold patterns should go for simple, plainer jewellery whilst those wearing a plain dress should look for statement pieces.

Do you usually wear maxi dresses ? I prefer wearing them with heels or wedges, what about you ?. Thanks for your comments and don't forget to follow Fashion and Cookies on:

  26. A me piacciono tantissimo, ma....santo cielo quelli che trovo sono tutti adatti alle watusse....farei invidia alle migliori spose con strascico kmetrico. Oppure dovrei trovare un bel paio di trampoli di quelli da circo...perché un 15" non credo sarebbe sufficiente!
    Ahimé, dall'alto della mia quasi "nanità" continuo ad ammirarli sui manichini.....
