Going to new lengths

The moment is all about maxi dresses. It's one of those things that you must have in your closet. It's your best friend right now and an absolute show-stopper


Once reserved for hippies and free spirits, the maxi dress is having a major fashion moment this season. This breezy and elegant garment is one of the most versatile wardrobe essentials. Be it a casual outing with friends, a movie date, beach party, or even work, a maxi can be worn in so many ways and suits every occasion and place.

Breezy and elegant, a flowing maxi dress makes an impact on and off the red carpet. This is why even celebrities are ditching their typical leg-baring cocktail dresses for unexpected, longer hemlines. To get it right, opt for a dress that either just grazes the floor or falls at the ankle. Skirts that fall mid-calf can be unflattering.

It is a super chic garment; however, it can also be dowdy. So to avoid the granny look, have a formfitting bodice or choose a dress with an unexpected plunging back or daring slit. Brownie points if you opt for a floor-grazing gown in notice-me-now colours like orange, peach or leopard print. If you want to be extra-experimental and get everyone's attention, go for a maxi dress with a sheer skirt. People will not be able to take their eyes off you.

A maxi can be accessorized in so many ways. You can wear a belt, a chunky neck-piece, scarves, etc. In case your maxi has a lot going, then just carry a bag, over-accessorizing is unforgivable. You don't want to lose the coolness of the garment. For starters, here are some styles for you
