Take it to the max

The Maxi dress – a girls best friend from season to season, taking you from the office to the bar – park to playdate… but with a glamorous step.

 

The maxi-rules

  1. Pair with a big chunky knit to give yourself some warmth – the contrast in texture looks fab and a knit instantly dresses  down an otherwise fancy outfit, giving it a more casual feel
  2. Add a black leather biker jacket for an instant rock n roll edge
  3. Pair with black ankle boots for cold weather, flats work night and day
  4. Trainers instantly dress a maxi down – simple and white or old school and converse
  5. Denim goes with everything – a little jacket gives ‘girl next door’
  6. Add a messy topknot if you still feel overdressed
  7. Just think opposites – contrast accessories to the dress – chunky handbags, simple jewellery… save delicate handbags and statement jewellery for weddings

 

These ladies are here to offer some stylish inspiration and see below for a little edit of highstreet maxi dresses and gorgeous ankle boots to pair with them…

    Love! Love the think opposites. Biker jacket and ankle boot look works so well. Also love the chunky knit with it! So glad I’ve finally followed your blog – it’s all so gorgeous! xx
