Let’s be honest…
You don’t really need to do a lot to spruce up a good Maxi Dress if you don’t really want to. You’ll always look the part as long as the dress fits and it’s of good quality.
But who did a little accessorising ever hurt?
It’s time to make that Maxi Dress really stand out. These are the style tips that will help you to do it.
Tip #1 – Wear the Dress With Trainers
We’re starting off with a controversial one because we know a lot of you will have some pretty strong opinions on wearing dresses and sneakers together.
Some see it as the perfect combination of classy and casual. Others think that a pair of trainers is the last thing that you should wear with a Maxi Dress.
We just want to encourage you to give it a chance. After all, there’s a lot to say for feeling comfortable if you’re going to be on your feet all day.
For one, you won’t find yourself getting tangled up in your dress as you might with heels. Just make sure you have clean trainers and you can definitely pull off this look.
Tip #2 – Wear a Belt
This is a great tip for those who find it difficult to find a Maxi Dress that fits their body shape.
A belt is an ideal way to pull the dress back in so it’s not billowing out all over the place. You get to rein in the flow and end up with an outfit that fits your form much better.
The only thing we’ll say here is that a thin belt probably isn’t the best idea. Something with a little thickness and character is the best way to go when it comes to Maxi Dresses. And remember that you can use a larger belt buckle as a centrepiece for the entire outfit.
Tip #3 – Complement the Dress With a Jacket
The question is…what type of jacket?
We’re not talking something that’s big and bulky here. Well, unless it’s the middle of winter. But if that’s the case, you’re probably going for comfort over style anyway.
We think denim and leather are the two best material choices for a Maxi Dress. Which you pick depends both on your personal preferences and the colour of the dress. Leather tends to give you a more chic look, whereas denim’s great for a more casual look.
The latter works especially well if you’re going to wear jeans under the dress.
Your Style is What You Love
As with all of the tips that we share on the Anaya blog, we’re going to share our disclaimer.
The best style tip is always to wear whatever makes you feel confident. Nothing fits better than confidence.
But these tips may just give you a few ideas if you want to change things up with your Maxi Dress.
Now, you just need to get your hands on a dress.
