Spring and summer are the best seasons to wear a maxi dress.
The long bohemian dress with colourful or floral patterns will give you a very bucolic style and will perfectly accompany your strolls on the beach, in town or in the countryside.
If you opt for a long white dress, often associated with the wedding dress, it should be worn with sandals or sneakers, without frills or lace, to break this well-anchored image. In a simple cut and worn with a few accessories, it will be your asset for a chic casual look in the summer.
For a chic evening, a long evening dress will make you look like a princess. opt for a long black dress that can be both classics, to wear in town with flat sandals or chic with pumps for a super classy look. Choose a side split model or a wallet cut for even more femininity.
Be reassured in advance: the maxi dress fits almost all body types. Whether one is thin, luscious, a marked waist, generous hips, belly or a small chest, there is no reason not to dare to wear a maxi dress.
If you are tall and slim, you are lucky to be able to wear everything: long plain, flowery, patterned or striped dress… anything goes.
Which maxi dress when you’re petite?
The only limit will go to women under 5 ft 2 inches, the long dress obviously does not help to lengthen the silhouette. If you are small and you want to wear a long dress at all costs, opt for a long slit or asymmetrical dress and preferably wear it with heels, favouring square heels rather than stilettos, and choose a colour solid that will lengthen you more than a two-tone dress.
Which maxi when you're round?
Round women should favour solid colours and avoid imposing patterns as well as horizontal stripes which have the effect of widening the silhouette. There are many models of large long dresses that have the advantage of highlighting the round silhouettes while camouflaging the small flaws.
Whatever your morphology, prefer natural materials and fluid cuts. A long dress can of course be close to the body but should not be too tight to avoid crushing your forms or too loose to avoid the "potato bag" effect.
In general, the maxi dress is sufficient by itself, but a few accessories will enhance it and also enhance your look.
For a very casual look, always prefer to wear a maxi dress with flat shoes, sandals, ankle boots or even small low sneakers will do the trick with a long summer dress.
The maxi dress is not really suitable for wearing stilettos but, if you wear it in the evening or on a special occasion, pair it with pretty simple and elegant sandals..
Large hats and large bags or totes are very elegant accessories to wear with a long dress, just like large necklaces. As for the jackets, they must be curved and close to the body, short or reaching maximum at the waist so as not to break the silhouette.
You now have all the keys in hand to choose well and wear a maxi dress. Neglected hair removal, skin that is not tanned enough, complex ... the dress will camouflage everything. So, you have no excuse for not wearing a maxi dress this summer! Also, discover the other must-haves of this summer 2020!
“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” – Audrey Hepburn
