Loved before their breezy silhouettes, playful patterns and bright colours, maxi dresses are a staple for the warm weather months. We love these floor-length garments because you can dress them up or down to fit any occasion. Looking for the perfect maxi dress for your body type? Style expert Toni Fifi is doing all the heavy lifting for you by rounding up three of the best maxi dress trends to sport all spring and summer.
If you want to go bold this summer, go for a printed maxi dress and pull colours out of the print to accent the look. Or go subtle and add neutral accessorize to make a statement. TIP: When in doubt, always choose nude accessories and shoes with a pattern, colour or black.
