Maxi dresses are easy like Sunday morning, you can dress down with trainers and flat sandals or for parties you can reach new heights with wedges or platforms.
The long dress in its modern incarnation dates back to the late 1960s but it really became an iconic piece of 1970s chic thanks to labels like Halston, Pucci and Biba. Then came all those long Laura Ashley dresses that made women look like Thomas Hardy heroines.
The maxi for 2020 though is definitely about dialing up your festival or holiday look. The structure is usually loose, so great for elegant lounging at home and long walks through summer fields. It’s also the dress you’ll wear at a posh garden party or take to Ibiza after lockdown. It’s wafty glamour that flatters your curves and makes you feel free…even if you’re in self isolation.
There are styles literally for every size and every age. The trick is to buy one for your shape. Masters of the modern-day maxi include, Free People, Rixo and Zara and now is the time to buy.
Sales are popping up all over the internet and that means you could find your perfect maxi at a mini price!
