Wedding Guest Attire With a Maxi Dress

Did you know a Maxi can be such a versatile piece in your wardrobe? When buying a Maxi dress that can work for many occasions I follow a few tips I've created. These tips have helped me choose maxis that can be worn casual all the way up to evening or black tie events.

Tip 1: Choose a solid color.

This can be any color of your liking, just make it one solid color with no prints.

Tip 2: Look for some interest in the dress.

Try to find something that makes the dress a little different or unique rather than a plain jane maxi. Look for unique shaped necklines, fabrics, slits, back details or backless.

Tip 3: Make sure it flatters your body type.

This will depend on knowing what looks best on YOU. Do you go for tight body con or do you prefer flowy? Mermaid style or a line, so many options.

Here is this super plain $12 maxi I got from Boohoo. This dress is a Petite size, body con, ribbed material with a boat neck and a slit on the side. The ribbed material elevates it some sicne it's not just your regular cotton maxi. Here I paired some white lace up heel sandals for an edgy yet dressed up vibe.

This look stayed pretty neutral with the black heels and the leopard print bag, but I added some large statement earrings to dress it up.

If earrings are not your thing, choose a statement necklace and have fun with colors. When you have a solid color dress your accessory options are endless. Paired this look with nude heels and a black evening bag.
