April’s must-have for women: The maxi dress
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 27 APR 2010 15:58 SPRING/SUMMERCOMMENTS
Move over mini skirts, the maxi dress is having a moment and this time round anyone can work the look.
Jenny, our blog editor, is a petite 5ft 3 and she’s sweeping the floor with a glamorous gown in the office today. The maxi dress is a multi-tasking garment that can take you from work to the park, from the beach to the bar and even to a summer wedding. Needless to say, we love them!
Knowing that you really can wear your maxi dress anywhere, it’s definitely worth investing in one for the summer… although, why stop at one, I’ve got my eyes on at least three on debenhams.com at the moment.
- The ideal length should hit your shoe when wearing flats
- Prints are big news, go for tribal, digital or tie dye for maximum style points
- Wear with cropped jackets, waistcoats or knitwear – avoid layering with floaty cardigans or long jackets
- Throw on loads of jewellery and a pair of hot sunglasses for a stylish summer look
