3 Ways to Wear the Maxi Dress this Season

3 Ways to Wear the Maxi Dress this Season

Although for the majority of countries we are well and truly feeling the chillier autumn temperatures, this doesn't mean that we have to neglect some of our all time favourite wardrobe staples. Those jacquared skirts and maxi length dresses needn't be pushed to the back of your closet space, instead they should be celebrated. Forget trousers, this season we're going back to feminine basics with the maxi dress.


Autumn/Winter fashion for this year is very much geared towards long dresses, over-sized knitwear and metallic accessories to help you to jazz up how you look... and feel throughout the cold snap. For a sartorial-savvy woman who knows exactly which designer pumps go with her bold shade of lipstick, when it comes to choosing a timeless piece like a long dress, details are essential to nail from the outset.


By details, everything from the cut and fit of a dress, to the fabric and lining it has been made from, to subtle details likes pleats and splits, and of course colour, design and embellishments count. Believe it or not, there are a wide variety of deciding factors to consider when shopping for a longer length dress, especially if this style of dress is not your usual go-to choice. But then fashion is nothing if not experimental. You could even find that just from buying that single maxi dress, this will trigger a genuine love for something that's never been seen in your wardrobe before.

 Here is a look at 3 of this season's luxurious long dresses that you need to own...


Matthew Williamson's Geometric Monochrome Gown 


 You can always count on this British designer to create the most spectacular party gowns. Confidence, geometric illusions and hand-embroidered sequins are the order of the day for this Optical Sequin Silk Evening Gown. If ever you needed an excuse to wear a floor length dress that dazzles from every angle, a festive celebration is that very occasion. Keep accessories minimal and instead opt for a passion red lip color with matching manicure.


Camilla's Colourful Drape Dress


 Known for their playful yet sophisticated prints, this sheer silk dress from Camilla has been designed with the modern Fashionista in mind. If you're not afraid of bright colors and exotic prints, then this is the party dress for you. It has a loose but flattering fit, along with a crystal embellishment throughout. Choose muted silver, gypsy-inspired jewellery to complete your bohemian glamor aesthetic.


Forever Unique's Plunging Maxi



Available in a choice of nude, red, black or blue, you can't go wrong with a statement block color, especially for the Christmas period. Boasting a plunging neckline, open back and some seriously stylish pleats, dressing for that next social event couldn't be more glamorous. Be sure to team the silver waist belt that's included on this dress with some metallic strappy sandals and a matching clutch bag. For this grown-up red carpet look, the rule for bags is the smaller the better.
