Flowy, long maxi dresses seem to be making their way into many women’s closets… So why not yours?

Not to confuse you, these dresses are not so dressy in a formal manner. Hence they are perfect for effortless dressing on outings with friends or while shopping. They are really comfortable while making you look chic. And they can be worn during summers, as well as when the weather gets a little cold.

However, to look stylish in longer hems, you will need to keep a few pointers in mind:

Right accessories – style your dress with a longer necklace or a pair of larger earrings to complete the look.

Footwear – Since these dresses are not very formal, you should wear a pair of strappy flat sandals or even platform wedge heels.

Layering – Add a layer like a shrug or even a denim jacket to look stylish without exposing your arms.


If you have a round body, triangle body or even an inverted body shape, you can opt for empire line maxi dresses with medium flare, which will conceal your body variations. However, if you have a rectangular body or an hourglass body shape, then go for maxi dresses which slightly emphasises on your waistline.
