Look, it’s not that I don’t understand minimalist style. I get it, we all love our staple basics but honestly give me a maximal look any day, especially if it’s a maxi dress.
Maxi dresses are just perfection. Name another seasonal trend that has as much staying power year-round – spoiler alert, there isn’t one.
Maxi dresses come in so many variations you’d be hard pressed to not find one to suit you. Our personal faves? Glad you asked. Here’s our round-up of the X best maxi dress styles that belong in every it girl’s wardrobe.
1. Summer Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses are synonymous with summer. Their floaty skirts and serious beach-chic vibes make these maxis the perfect addition to your summer rotation.
2. One Shoulder Maxi Dresses
As the Oscars red carpet would attest, this year is the year of the one-shouldered maxi dress. If you dare to bare a little, strapless maxi dresses create a timeless silhouette you’ll be reaching for every time you have somewhere special to go.
3. Formal Maxi Dresses
Formal maxi dresses are the easiest way to get glam in a flash. If you’ve got a last minute event that deserves something a little special, you can’t go wrong with a full-length and flawless dress. Choose a fabric that’s a little more luxe (hello satin) and you’re guaranteed to look a million bucks.
4. Long Sleeve Maxi Dresses
For a truly extra look, you need a long sleeve maxi dress stat. The sleeves add an extra layer of elegance to your look and eliminate the need for that jacket your mum insists you take to every single occasion.
5. Wrap Maxi Dresses
Wrap maxi dresses are universally flattering but as a rule, most of us gals steer clear due to the dreaded nip slip. However, if you’re game, we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to make sure your dress is hugging all the right places.
6. Floral Maxi Dresses
Floral maxi dresses are a staple in all it-girls wardrobes. The perfect summer holiday companion, these dresses are super Instagrammable, require little effort but have max impact.
7. Lace Maxi Dresses
The perfect lace maxi gives off the ultimate boho vibes and can be dressed up or down with a few simple changes. Headed to brunch? Wedges and a crossbody bag have you covered. Going somewhere a little fancier? Layer some gold jewellery, add a messy ponytail and you’re good to go!
8. Two Piece Set Maxi
Alright, we’re bending the rules here but two-piece set maxis have earned their place on this list. Every bit as chic as their one-piece counterparts, these miracle workers give you a little more flexibility when it comes to putting together your outfit plus you can mix and match with items you already have in your closet!
9. Maxi Jumpsuits
Again, not technically a dress, but if you don’t have a maxi playsuit in your wardrobe you need to fix that ASAP. A maxi playsuit is a perfect inbetweener for when you show off your pins with maximal style (and honestly, why wouldn’t you?).
