Maxi Dress Style Inspiration For Every Occasion


Season after season the maxi dress makes a return to the shops and people’s wardrobes. Do you have more than one maxi dress in your wardrobe? Is it something you always buy when the sun comes out? Is a maxi dress something you only wear on holiday?

Wherever and however you wear your maxi dress there are plenty of dresses out there to suit every shape, height and colouring. These versatile dresses can be worn from beach to ballroom and can be dressed up or dressed down.

Printed maxi dresses look great during the day with a simple wedge or a sandal here or on holiday. Look for cotton fabrics when abroad as silks can sometimes show up unwanted marks in hot climates. Printed maxi dresses are also great for disguising any marks or lunchtime spillages. All the printed dresses we selected above can be worn with a denim jacket and worn here in the UK casually.

Some people think that these dresses should be reserved for weddings and holidays however teamed up with a denim or leather jacket these could be worn all year round as we discussed in a previous post here.

There are also maxi dresses now available in petite lengths. Our top tip is to ensure that you don’t go for too much of a billowing fabric if you are petite as this could overwhelm you. Look for a neat, tailored fit that shows off your waist.

If you’re going to an evening event and want to make an impact these glamorous maxi dresses we’ve selected will certainly do that. Keep your accessories simple with these dresses as these  make enough of a statement themselves. Going for a dress in a soft metallic colour will also ensure that the dress in timeless and could be worn time and time again.
