Nowadays Maxi dresses are totally in fashion and the easiest way to achieve a modest look. Whether a single colour or patterned maxi dress, they are an absolute necessity in every woman’s closet throughout all seasons. They can be worn as a glamorous party wear to a casual college outfit. The only trick you need to focus is on the details of the rest of your outfit and pattern of your maxi dress.
Maxi dresses come in different material like velvet, jersey or even lace. In this article, I discuss pattern maxi dresses and how to style them.
Tip 1: Choice of material
As summer approaches, soft jersey fabric is the best among the lot, to wear as that will skim your body, move with you, and be super comfortable – it’s a winner in that hot burning climate. Also, select flowy dresses with drape beautifully over your body.
#Tip 2: Layer with Solids
Always pair a pattern maxi dress with a solid cardigan, jacket or blazer to get different looks. A sky blue jeans jacket gives a perfect casual chic look (people may tend up thinking you took hours coordinating your outfits).
Tip 3: Slightly formal
You could always work up a solid colour maxi dress with a black blazer and belt for a professional look. However, refrain from printed pattern at your office girls.
Tip 4: Balance it out
When dealing with patterns I always try to wear a plain hijab to give more attention to patterns. Try matching it either with the colour of your cardigan or the pattern of your maxi dress.
Tip 5: For petite woman
Select a maxi dress with small, consistent pattern or strips – just keep in mind the size of the print should be no larger than your fist polka dots are perfect. On the other hand, say a big no to anything that divides your body into sections and even to large prints.
Tip 6: Accessorise your look
Try adding chunky bracelets and rings to your outfit and ditch those huge statement necklace as it causes distractions.
Tip 7: Shoes are Important.
Earlier maxi dress was considered casual wear but today it can be easily transformed into an elegant workplace or party wear just adding heels and clutch glamming up the outfit. Nude or neutral tone are perfect for maxi dress as they go along with the maximum of colours.
All maxi dresses were bought from a local store in Ajman, UAE.
