With the ability to magically move from casual cool to effortlessly glam in the blink of an eye (and a swift switch of accessories), the versatile maxi dress has had us smitten for several summer seasons. When it comes to this Wardrobe Hero, one thing’s for sure: the maxi dress is going nowhere.
Initially popular in the swinging ‘60s, the maxi dress represented a rebellion against the popular mini-skirt; a hemline revolution largely appropriated by those fantastically folksy, free-spirited hippies. While the modern maxi can take on a range of guises to suit every event in a girl’s summer calendar, this ankle-grazer hasn’t lost any of its easy-breezy appeal. In fact, it’s probably its laidback nature which makes the maxi such a must-have during the free and easy summer months. Great for beach, bar and just about everything in between, we take a look at three ways to wear one of our favourite maxis of the season, taken straight from our fabulous Look! Magazine collection.
Go back to the maxi’s roots and channel your inner hippy chick by teaming your maxi with a throwback denim jacket and tan boho accessories.
