Style tricks for the maxi dress

Going super-long is something every woman can pull off. Whether willowy, wide, or skinny, no matter what your frame, with careful selection of styles and fashion accessories, every woman can feel feminine and glamorous in a versatile maxi dress.

Start by getting the right length for your height. Over-long hemlines can take inches off your height. Go for a maximum of an inch from the ground. Adding platform heels or high wedges will give you enough height to make you look feminine and glamorous rather than lumpy and large.

The empire line style is probably the best style if you are conscious of your hips or stomach. Go for a flowing fabric to avoid looking too big. Make sure your maxi style skims, rather than clings, if you are big breasted or are trying to hide flab. If you are not sure what patterns suit you then go for a small to medium sized patterns as they will suit most women.

Accessorising your maxi dress is easy. Start with a wide belt to tie at your waist or ribcage. Pair it with an oversized bag, shades, and a headscarf. To give more structure to your maxi dress, you can team it with a fitted waistcoat on the top, or a blazer. A cropped denim jacket will also do a great job. Finish it of with a long necklace to elongate your figure.
