With summer putting in an earlier appearance than expected, ladies are already planning their summer fashion look.
If you dread the summer and are uncomfortable about showing your legs, don’t forget the classic favourite – the maxi dress.
This easy-to-wear styled dress has seen a surge in popularity over recent years and can be worn for every occasion, including nights out, as work wear and for relaxing at the weekends, as well as for more formal occasions. It can be dressed up and dressed down and accessories added and is one of the most versatile items of clothing in any women’s wardrobe.
If you are conscious of your middle region, look at styles which include a soft top layer, as this can help disguise any lumps and bumps and look feminine and pretty. If you are conscious of your bottom, go for a pattern or vertical striped design, which will make you feel more confident.
Actress Kate Hudson was recently spotted in Los Angeles looking great in a maxi dress.
Other style options to consider include whether you prefer a low neckline or want something a little less open. If you want to show off your arms or plan on wearing your maxi dress on holiday or for beach wear, then a white maxi dress can look fantastic, especially with a tan, and if you are looking for a white maxi dress visit AX Paris for a variety of styles.
The style which looks best will depend on what body shape you are. If you want a sleek and stylish look, avoid any tassels, buttons or big prints, and if you are big-chested, don’t go for a halter neck of shoe string straps, as this will emphasise these areas.
The type of shoe you pair with will depend on the occasion. Maxi dresses are very versatile and can be worn with sneakers, heels and flats and look great with wedge heels in the summer. For a sophisticated look, match the shoe colour to the dress colour and add coordinating accessories such as a handbag and belt.
For real fans of the maxi dress, there is also the maxi skirt option, which is very on trend this season and looks great with a crop top and waist-length cardigan.
