Thanks to its breezy silhouette, an extensive range of prints and a wide spectrum of colors, maxi dresses pretty much double as cover-ups once summer rolls around. But when styled correctly, a maxi dress doesn’t have to be worn exclusively at the beach—it can be given a street-chic appeal for a city stroll or elevated for a black-tie affair. Combined with its ground-grazing length, the effect is dramatic.

1. With Sneakers

Many people still think that such an outfit looks weird. It’s commonly believed that we should wear sports shoes only with sportswear. But the rules of fashion change. Nowadays a combination of a dress + sneakers has almost become classic. This look is perfect for those who don’t like high heels and are afraid to get tangled up in the long dress. This definitely won’t happen if you wear sneakers!


 2. With a Denim Jacket

If you’re going to go for a walk and you want to put on your favorite dress, don’t forget about a denim jacket. This outfit looks beautiful and very stylish. Here are some of the pluses of the dress + a denim jacket combination:

• You look fresher and younger.
• The color of a denim jacket is quite neutral so it goes well with any skin type.
• Such attire accentuates the legs and makes them look longer.


3. With a Belt

If you wear a maxi dress with a belt you can be sure that this will accentuate your small waist — this will instantly make everyone around you jealous. But if you don’t like belts, you can still look very attractive in a sexy slit dress that will accentuate not only your waist but your legs as well.

4. With High Heels

This is one of the ways to make you look taller because your maxi dress will hide the heels.


5. With a Leather Jacket

Want your outfit to be chic and sassy? Then say yes to this combination immediately! Besides, when wearing a leather jacket, you can experiment with makeup using different bright colors.

6. Beach Maxi Dresses

Beach maxi dresses are your best friends on summer holidays! They are made of a lightweight fabric that is perfect for hot weather.


7. Asymmetrical Dresses

If you don’t like to hide your legs completely, asymmetrical dresses can be the best solution. The front of the dress is short and the back is long. It’s not only beautiful and sexy but very original as well.


8. Accessories 

There are no strict rules: the choice of accessories depends on your taste and the occasion you are dressing for. Accessories make any attire look gorgeous. If your dress has a great neckline, a beautiful necklace will be the right choice. Accessories can be neutral: gold or silver, for example. Or they can be bright to match your dress.



Have fun ‘maxiing’ around ladies!
