Maxi dresses are perfect to wear for more formal occasions and events.

A summer ball, for example, would be the perfect place to wear this gorgeous floral maxi which Evelina is wearing.

How beautiful is the button detailing down the back of the dress?

The buttons along with the bow detail really add something special and dressy to this look.

This maxi dress has a mermaid-style shape to it, as the skirt skims over her waist and then flares out at the bottom – it is super pretty and feminine!

A gorgeous way to style a maxi skirt is to team it with a cute crop top such as the one above.

The crop top works well as it contrasts well with the expanse of fabric from the skirt, and prevents you from looking too covered up.

This gorgeous statement skirt is definitely the focal point of the outfit, and the complimentary crop top picks out one of the colours from the skirt making sure the pieces work well together.

If the skirt has no pattern, then you could get away with a patterned crop top instead.


Keep it neutral like Krystal pictured above.

By sticking to just one or two key colours in a look, you will ensure you always look chic and well put together.

This look is so perfect for the beach or a hot summer holiday.

We love the heeled strappy sandals and the cute oversized straw hat and matching clutch bag.

The polka dot is so on-trend too – this pattern is really in vogue for 2017.

You would assume that a lace maxi skirt would only be suitable for a formal occasion wouldn’t you?

Well, Aylin here proves how gorgeous this type of skirt can look casually when styled with a slogan t-shirt and some flat sandals.

Aylin keeps to three main colours here – red, black and white.

This ensures the look remains chic and not confused.

The black clutch and black sunglasses pick up on the font of the t-shirt, whilst the gold accessories add some extra glamour.

These gorgeous statement sunnies would really add some extra style to any look.

We love the round frames with their thick black rims and gold detailing.

A maxi dress or skirt with a leg split such as in the look above is a super feminine and pretty style which really allows you to show off your legs and shoes subtly.

This gorgeous red floral dress is super girly and summery – we love the off the shoulder design and ruffle detailing.

By teaming the dress with the metallic platform sandals, the dress is really elevated into something special.
