What Makes Maxi Dresses So Versatile?

Maxi dresses are a staple item for any girl’s wardrobe because they are so versatile and can be worn a million different ways. One maxi dress can provide ten different outfits by simply using different accessories and dressing it up or dressing it down. Check out these different maxi dresses from missguided to find the right one for you that you can style to suit any occasion.

1 – Accessories

Accessories can transform any outfit and make even the most basic ensemble pop. You can really turn up the glam by wearing some extra sparkly pieces of jewellery and strappy heels or make it elegant with more delicate gold pieces and a simple clutch bag. Alternatively, some casual hoops can instantly dress down your outfit and help you achieve an effortlessly chic look. Chokers are still popular and help give your outfit a bit of an edge if you want to balance out the more girly vibes if the ultra-feminine look is not for you.  

2 – Minimalist

Rather than dressing your outfit up with accessories, you can achieve a different kind of look by simply keeping it basic and understated. Sometimes all you need to do is throw on a pair of strappy sandals to help keep you cool and let your dress do all the work. In the colder months, you can just wear a stylish turtle neck underneath with no additional accessories required to complete the look.

3 – Go Runway

The runway is all about high heels. Maxi dresses are great for elongating your figure and making you look ten feet tall, add a pair of stilettos or platform shoes and you will look like you just stepped off the runway. Changing up your casual shoes for some heels will instantly make your outfit more high-fashion and give you a great confidence boost.

4 – Beach Bum

Maxi dresses are an iconic summer item that can help keep you cool in the heat whilst also providing protection from the sun or a bit of privacy if you would rather not get your legs out. A maxi dress is a great beach cover-up or it can be a great date night outfit during the summer months when you want to sit outside the bar with a cocktail. You can wear an adorable sun hat to protect your face whilst also creating a bold, fashionable outfit with next to no effort required.

5 – Turn it into a two-piece

To really emphasise the versatility of the maxi dress – you can even wear it as a top or a skirt. It is easy to create the illusion of separate pieces by adding an oversized jumper or shirt on top. A shirt can help add another layer when it’s chilly and if you tie it at the waist then it can help create an hourglass silhouette and break up the top and bottom of the dress to make it look like a separate skirt. Or a simple belt can be a great accessory for creating a desirable silhouette and making your dress look like a matching set.
