- The maxi dress makes a loud statement to begin with, so try not to over accessorize. A few simple pieces of Jewelry, and even a headband is definitely enough for this dress.
- Because the Maxi dress has such a spring and summer look to it you should stay away from closed toed shoes, instead stick to a basic pair of cute flip flops, some gladiator sandals, espadrilles, high-heeled sandals or a comfortable pair of wedges. No matter what shoes you wear make sure your Maxi dress is not dragging on the ground.
- If you are Petite you can still work the Maxi dress! Some simple things to look for if you are petite: Try to find a more form fitting Maxi dress, one that is simple and does not have a lot of ruffles and extra flowing materials. A dress that accentuates your waist will provide you with a longer leaner look.
