Why Maxi Dresses Are So Versatile

If you’ve still not bought yourself a maxi dress, you’re missing out.

They’ve been popular since the summer of 2009 and have featured on the catwalks year after year. The maxi dress is here to stay and here’s why.

1. They Work for Everyone

Regardless of your age, height and body shape, there will be a maxi dress for you. Whether you choose loose and flowing, fitted and chic, backless, strapless or halter neck, you can be sure you will feel effortlessly beautiful in this versatile wardrobe staple.

2. They Work for Any Occasion

Dress them up with heels and a blazer and you’re ready for work. Dress them down with a tote bag and sandals and you’re ready for lunch with your friends and a shopping trip. Accessorise with jewellery, hair and nails and you’re set for a wedding or a party. They’re also perfect for a holiday, doubling up as a beach cover-up and an evening outfit.

  1. There’s So Much Choice

They’re available in every colour and pattern imaginable, so you can stay on trend with just this one item in your wardrobe. Trends for this year include neon brights, colour blocking and animal print, but if these are too much for you, The Trend Spotter confirms that purple is also very popular this year, so a purple maxi dress would be perfect. A light purple would look beautiful for a summer wedding, whereas a darker richer purple adds glamour to an evening look.

4. They Keep You Cool

Maxi dresses help you stay cool on hot days. As well as the long skirt protecting your legs from the sun, the fabric catches the breeze. Meaning you can stay looking stylish and flawless even when the temperature is rising.

5. They Work for Almost All the Seasons

That’s right – your trusty maxi dress isn’t just for summer. Perfect for spring or autumn and days when the sun can’t quite make up its mind, they can be worn with a short leather or denim jacket and boots. If you want to wear yours all year round, make sure to pick a colour that not only looks good with your sun-kissed summer skin but also your paler winter skin. A purple maxi dress would suit most complexions. They really are extremely versatile and a huge asset to your wardrobe.
