Go for a neutral or solid colour palette

For example, a dress in a solid neutral color such as black, grey, white or navy blue is perfect as they are super easy to dress up and goes with absolutely anything.

Scale the print

This floor-sweeping chic silhouette looks flattering on all body types though a maxi dress with larger scale prints and dark patterns will typically work best and complement a full-figured, frame. However, a maxi dress with smaller prints will suit best a petite lady. Therefore, the general rule is to wear prints that are scaled to your body size. Overall, long vertical prints are just perfect for slimming down any body figure.

Pick correct shoes and accessories

A huge part of accessorizing a maxi dress for summer consists of choosing appropriate adornments. Most importantly, the shoes. Adding the right kind of shoes is key. For a night out you can even pair high heels or stylish flats. A wedge will add a little height and style for a summer party or a casual date. While a flip-flop with a hat is flawless for a summer-boho vibe and beach vacation. Apart from the correct footwear; a tote bag, statement jewelry, and a dash of makeup are all you need to style up a maxi dress for summer weddings.

Maxi dress with a jacket

Wearing a lightweight denim jacket is also a perfect way to style casual spaghetti strap maxi dresses. Dress it up or dress it down, denim comes with plethora of choices. The shorter-length jackets are preferable as longer ones can get a bit disorganized if it does not have a proper shape to them. The definitive denim jacket in diverse indigo washes or a crisp white denim jacket has always been a popular choice for summer wear, specifically when it comes to layering a maxi dress for cooler summer evenings.
