Within the world of maxi dresses, there really are so many different options. Even though the length of the dress is the same, there are differences in fabric, print, color, and shape. If you’re heading to brunch, try a maxi floral dress in a light cotton or sheer chiffon fabric. It should feel easy, effortless, and comfortable. A pastel dress could world too, just something simple to capture the easy-breezy summer spirit. Nothing too constricting or flashy, you feel? These could also work for bridesmaid dresses, if the wedding is a casual affair. Go for a shopping trip with the rest of the wedding party and pick out coordinating wedding looks together!
For more formal occasion dresses, try something with heavier drape and in a darker tone to suit the event. We’re really obsessed with velvet in luxe jewel tones. For an evening wedding guest dress, opt for something that vibes with the wedding venue and the bride’s color palette. It doesn’t have to be so matchy-matchy, but just keep in mind how your dress will look next to the décor and when you take photos. We think navy and burgundy colors are super elegant for special occasionwear. Pair these subtle hues with flashy footwear and accessories to heighten the glam factor. If you’re looking for something a little more dazzling, we also carry gorgeous metallic maxi dresses and baroque printed maxi dresses, too. These make a huge statement, especially when the pattern covers such a large area on the dress. To offset that, go minimal with your accessories and make-up. Thin hoop earrings and a nude heel in patent leather is all you need to finish off a look that dynamic.
You could also choose to wear a maxi dress as your everyday dress. To be honest, they’re so comfortable it’s like being swaddled in a giant blanket all day long! T-shirt dresses in a viscose or spandex cotton blend fabric are our personal favorites. They feel cool and smooth against your skin and have the perfect amount of stretch so you can stay comfortable running errands 24/7. You can try wearing them with your favorite sneakers (we love a classic all-white colorway, even if it means a little stain here and there) or a pair of pool slides or sandals. The same goes for maxi dresses with cami necklines. They’re scream summer comfort in the best way possible. Comfort is key when it comes to choosing footwear!
