Long dresses do not only work as casual outfits. They are also ideal for festive occasions or as party dresses. Classic colours such as black or beige are of course particularly classy. For a more exciting look, however, maxi dresses with a metallic look are particularly suitable. Combine your floor-length dress with high heels or flat closed shoes and a discreet clutch.

MAXI DRESS - HOW TO WEAR THEM
Correctly combined maxi dresses can quickly look city-compatible and elegant. I prefer to wear regular sneakers with my maxi dresses. I like this break very much because you can wear more chic models during the day without looking too overdressed. If you like it a bit more elegant, you can combine the dresses with sandals or high heels. The latter have the clear advantage that they stretch the silhouette, which can often be very useful when wearing these dresses.
When it gets fresh, I like to combine a leather or denim jacket with it, whichever fits better to the dress. With jackets or coats that are too wide or very long, you have to pay special attention to the proportions, because you can quickly look shapeless. If you want to be on the safe side, choose a shorter jacket.
Also, the handbag should not be too big, because Maxi dress with Maxi bag quickly looks too “Maxi”. Better choose a standard bag size or leave it out completely.
Lighter and more open dresses – larger pocket.
Closed dresses of heavier or much fabric – smaller to no bag.

WHICH MAXI DRESS SUITS YOU?
Maxi dresses really suit everyone, no matter what size, no matter what body type – whether tall or small, narrow or a little wider. The long fabric flatters the figure and stretches visually. However, a few small tips should still be taken into account:
A small breast can be concealed by clever details on the décolleté, such as frills or embroidery. In this way, the breast area appears “padded”. Bright colours and shiny patterns achieve the same effect.
If you have curves or want to conceal a few problem areas, flowing fabrics are just the thing for you. With additional embellishments, you can distract attention from a fuller but and stronger thighs.
If you have wide shoulders and rather narrow hips, halterneck dresses are ideal for you as they make the shoulders look smaller. Flowing fabrics are also suitable here, as they make the figure look more feminine overall.
Choose a simple dress with a V-neck or button placket, which gives a visual stretch to the body. You can also wear high-heeled sandals, which have the same effect.
