The Maxi Dress

maxi dress10 steps on how to work this key look for summer:

1. Go for patterns that flatter your body shape, I personally like to avoid stripes but they can look great on some.


2. Pair with wedge sandals or platforms for an elegant evening look.


3. Wear with gladiators or flip–flops during the day for a relaxed look.


4. Don’t be put off if you’re short, maxi dresses aren’t just for tall people and often help to elongate your body.


5. Maxi’s work well with denim jackets, work this look during the day time for a casual yet chic look.

6. Don’t be afraid to accessorise! Maxi’s look great with statement jewellery. Pair with big hoop earrings.


7. Remember that maxi dresses can be worn anywhere, whether it’s out shopping or to a dinner party. There are plenty of casual styles to be found out there.


8. Go for a shape that flatters. Halter neck styles happen to be my favourite.


9. Be daring with your colours. A bright orange dress doesn’t have to be that daunting, it is summer after all!


10. Finally, shop around. There are so many different styles around which are what make them so versatile and great no matter what your body shape.

    Nina, If you promise, promise, promise that short people can wear them, I may even go and buy one!

  2. LoveSceneMag says:

    Ha-aaa. Funny, Hannah. It is something you would be dubious about wearing as a shorty. Good advice Nina.

  3. Yes buy one Hannah! Kim Kardashian wears them and she’s 5’2! :)

    I absolutely lOVE that dress in the photo (bottom of page).. please may you tell me where it is from. I am considering dressing my bridesmaids in maxi’s (thanks to your fab advice) and this one is PERFECT for them. They are both between 5’2 and 5’4.

    Thanks so much for getting back to me!! I can’t seem to find this on ASOS, I would actually pay you if you could send me a link to it? Thanks again! x

  7. LoveSceneMag says:

    Dear Tess,

    It would appear the dress has sold out. Good luck hunting for an alternative. These ones from ASOS might appeal to you: or
