STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Maxi-ing it Up!

Rewind a few years back to when wearing a maxi skirt or a maxi dress was a social ticket to eyebrow raising, usually followed by a “What is she wearing?” Maybe I was just unaware of the in and out of the fashion world I guess.

But today, in this Carpe Diem era, the maxi dress is one of the most popular, yet conventional dresses worn. In the past four to five years it has made a striking comeback. It is all we talk about and resort to during summer…and spring, maybe even in autumn and winter?

Maxi dresses used to be associated as dressy, elegant, formal occasion attire. However it has all changed now- they have become more acceptable, charming and stylish look for any occasion, for all sizes without hurting one’s repertoire. We all love to wear them in any occasion: a day out, dinner with family, dates, night outs, picnics, weddings, dances and more. Although they are an instant attention, there is a trick to max your style. Women tend to get confused what to select and what not to, but it is all in how you style it; going that extra mile to select the right style for your body figure, height, color and scale, and with the right accessories you can look trendy and chic.
