Maxi Dress Outfits
In the warmer months, we find ourselves leaning towards lightweight fabrics, flowing silhouettes and feminine cuts that are easy to wear without compromising on style. One of our favourite pieces that fits this unofficial dress code to a T is the classic maxi dress. Flattering, stylish and versatile, it’s no wonder we keep coming back to this wardrobe staple, and with new styles emerging every season we’re more than happy see their return year after year.
With an endless range of stunning styles and colours to try, there’s a maxi dress out there to compliment every figure and make you look and feel stunning. If you’re new to the maxi style or looking for inspiration to freshen up your look, we’ve styled some of our favourite pieces to help.
As soon as we start sporting fresh floral prints, it’s clear the warmer weather is well and truly on its way. From bold colourful prints to delicate, ditsy floral patterns this look oozes femineity and has us dreaming of warm afternoon picnics and balmy summer evenings. When choosing a print, opt for a colour scheme that compliments your features; shades of blue make light features stand out whilst pink and red hues look stunning with dark hair. Let the dress be the feature of your outfit and keep accessories to a minimum, think neutral sandals and a coordinating bag.
From ditsy florals in romantic pink hues, as seen on the Jaida Dress, to fresh shades of blue on the Cassie Dress, we can’t go past a floral pattern.
A crisp white maxi is a non-negotiable in our capsule wardrobe. This staple piece can be slipped on with a pair of tan leather sandals for an effortless, easy look or dressed up with heels and gold accessories for a dinner at your favourite restaurant. Look for a dress with quality fabric, such as san gallo or heavier cotton and choose a style that accentuates your features. Experiment with cut outs and backless pieces or keep it simple with a flattering wrap bodice and A-line skirt for a look that will always be on trend.
The Antonella Dress features a stunning structured bodice and symmetrical cut outs. The tie up back and flutter sleeves of the Averie Dress add a stylish touch to a simple silhouette.
Whether you’re into smooth pastel shades or bold, bright hues, the start of the warmer weather is the perfect opportunity to add some colour to your wardrobe and a maxi dress is an effortless way to do just that. For a casual, understated outfit, pair a pastel dress with gold or silver accessories, white sneakers and a neutral bag. If you’re not afraid of stepping out in a statement look, compliment a bold maxi with a clutch and strappy sandals in various shades of the same colour. Finish with a dewy, fresh makeup look to complete the ensemble.
