Trendy Ways to Wear Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe and perhaps the only essential that takes the guess work out of getting dressed in the morning. With so many cuts, prints, fabrics, and sleeve lengths, there is a maxi dress for every season and occasion. As we welcome the warm Spring weather with open arms, there is no better time to pull those maxi dresses to the front of the closet and start putting together outfits for the days ahead.

Spend less time getting ready and more time enjoying the nice weather with these effortless frocks that exude elegance and femininity no matter the time of day. Let’s take a look at how you can pair these flexible dresses with some of your favorite accessories.

Casual vs. Elegant: Maxi Dresses for Every Occasion

Maxi dresses come in all shapes and sizes with a few distinctive features that distinguish them between casual and elegant. Whereas linen and cotton are popular fabrics for breezy summer dresses, silk and velvet are common fabrics for a more elegant garment. Regardless of fabric, the way you choose to accessorize can immediately take your day dress into an evening gown. Let’s take a look how.

5 Stylish Ways to Wear Maxi Dresses

1. Play Around with Different Cuts

High-slits, strapless, asymmetrical hems, wrap-around cuts, backless…the list goes on. With maxi dresses, you have an array of options to choose from for various desired looks and occasions. A high-slit skirt can be flirty and feminine for brunching with friends while long sleeves are more conservative and elegant for an evening event.

2. Put a Belt on It

Belts are a great accessory to pair with maxi dresses, especially if you’re going for a more structured look that accentuates your waist and body shape. For a more put together look, try to match your belt with your shoes or purse color and keep the rest of accessories to a minimum.

3. Choose Your Outerwear Carefully

You can easily dress a maxi dress up or down with outerwear. If you’re going for a more casual look, a loose cardigan or denim jacket will do the trick. If you’re trying to be dressier, a leather jacket, blazer, or shawl can instantly enhance the look.

4. Mixed it Up with Shoes

Shoes are another great accessory that can be mixed and matched with your outfit depending on time of day or occasion. Keep it casual with a pair of cute summer sandals and tennis shoes or dress it up with high heels and leather boots.

5.  Accessorize Accordingly

Jewelry, purses, and even hairstyles can dramatically alter an outfit. Maxi dresses already offer enough drama on their own, so keep the accessories to a minimum to avoid looking tacky, especially when playing with prints.
