The glitzy award season is currently in full swing, and although the Grammys and BAFTAs are now out of the way, we still have the thrill of the Oscars to look forward to – as well as plenty of A-list red carpet appearances.
Although the more daring celebrities may opt for mini-skirts and cocktail dresses to show off their pins, the safest bet on said occasions is usually a long dress – and maxi lengths have been everywhere this year, with a host of gorgeous chiffon, satin, silk and sequined offerings.
Of course, the maxi dress has been in high fashion for the past couple of years, and is now something of an everyday staple for many women. The trend looks set to continue into Spring/
Summer this year, so we can expect shop windows to be full of maxis in pastel shades such as peach and mint, as well as maxis featuring vibrant graphic designs and paisley prints.
Maxi dresses work fantastically on leggy ladies, who can pull off busy prints with ease. For a quick maxi fix, shop tall maxi dresses at online shop, where you’ll find a collection that caters for both dressy occasions and more relaxed outings.
Embellished dresses are best worn with minimal accessories – team with cute heels or comfy flats and a small clutch purse to add the finishing touches to your look. If you’re wearing a busy print, break down the ensemble with a waist-cinching belt to add definition to a tall silhouette.
However, the great thing about maxi dresses is that they can work for everyone, regardless of height. Petite maxi dresses look fab with a waistcoat or small leather jacket to define waist and hips – and if you’re concerned about your hemline sweeping the floor, wear with funky platforms or wedge sandals for extra height.
Complete your capsule wardrobe with a must-have maxi – with the right accessories, maxi dresses can be dressed up or down very easily, and a good maxi will last you from Spring right through to Summer.
