How to style for Spring

In spring, we start to see the first rays of sunshine, but the weather is still a little unpredictable, and sometimes it’s super cold! 🥶

Top Tips:

  • 1

    To combat the changeable weather, style your maxi dress with removable layers.

  • 2

    You might try layering your maxi dress with a cropped biker style jacket for an effortlessly cool feel (and also to protect you from the rain!)

  • 3

    Add a little warmth by wearing sheer tights that match your skin tone

  • 4

    Bring your outfit to life by completing your look with some white high-top sneakers to make your outfit ‘pop’!

How to style for Summer

A maxi dress is perfect for summer because it’s flowy and lightweight to keep you cool whilst looking pretty! 💖

Top Tips:

  • 1

    Maxi dresses are perfect for trips to the beach! Be sure to style yours with a wide-brimmed hat and shades for a chic look (that also keep your face shielded from the sun!)

  • 2

    Take your maxi dress from the beach to the bar (in under 60 seconds) by simply adding a pair of wedged heels and a clutch bag!

  • 3

    Lastly, experiment with the volume of your maxi dress by wearing a belt on your waist to show off your curves

    How to style for Autumn/Fall

    When autumn/fall approaches, the weather starts to cool down again – but that doesn’t mean it’s time to retire your maxi dress! 🍂

      Pair your maxi dress with an oversized, knitted sweater to add a cozy and effortless vibe!

    • 2

      Add style and intrigue to your look by layering up your favourite necklaces over your sweater

    • 3

      Add a pair of boots to finish your look – I love wearing ankle boots for an effortlessly cool look

      How to style for Winter

      You don’t have to wave 'bye bye' to your maxi dresses in the winter 👋

      Here are my secrets to staying chic and warm in a maxi dress… 

      Top Tips:

      • 1

        Long boots and a long coat are the quickest way to add warmth to your maxi dress whilst still looking stylish. This outfit combo is cozy yet irresistibly stylish!

      • 2

        You might also wish to pair your maxi dress with some thick opaque tights and a full-length slip (the slip adds warmth and helps the fabric look thicker for winter!)

      • 3

        Lastly, layer a warm turtleneck underneath your dress for those brisk mornings. Plus, you can wear a coloured turtleneck to complement your dress and personality!
