Spring style is my absolute favourite. After months of layering and an over-bearingly dark and boring wardrobe, there’s nothing I love more than getting a new Spring wardrobe in. Now I am more than ready to embrace Spring. Pastel shades, lace details and flowing dresses – I can’t wait.
One trend which I’ve always been sceptical and cautious of is maxi dresses but this year I’m giving it a try. For fear of looking like a balloon or a little frumpy I avoided the trend at all costs. However, after spotting the style on my favourite streetstyle accounts and in fashion magazines, I decided to give it a go. From what I’ve seen the maxi dress is the dress for Spring/Summer. And my verdict? I’ve realised it’s such an easy comfy outfit, and so fun to style.
My favourite way to style maxi dresses or skirts is by layering. There’s nothing better than transitioning into Spring by layering up with lighter items. I love being able to wear Spring trends in the colder months just as we are moving into the right season and this is the perfect way.
This look is one of my favourites: it’s perfect for work, going out meeting the girls, having brunch or even a date night. I’m only 5″6 and don’t have the best figure and have found that while long, breezy maxi dresses are unflattering on myself – my favourite style of maxi dress is asymmetric. For me, this makes it a lot easier to style. I find by wearing asymmetric styles I can wear heeled boots to accentuate my height and still show off my personal style whilst staying comfortable.
The lightweight materials and array of designs and prints give a fresh twist to the maxi dress trend this season, and I’m so glad I gave in and tried it – I’m totally addicted!
