The maxi dress is one of the most versatile dress cuts and that means plenty of maxi dresses are good picks for the club or other glitzy events. However, it can be hard to make a maxi dress work in anevening environment unless you put it together just right. So how do you make a maxi dress work for the club? Here’s our introduction.
What exactly are maxi dresses?
The first thing to know about sexy maxi dresses is that you should expect slightly different look, and experience, from what you would get wearing a normal maxi dress. Maxi dresses are a large family of dresses that are cut to be form-fitting at the top and then flow over the body to be very loose below the waist. Most of the time, however, a maxi dress conjures an image of a very casual sun dress to be worn at the beach. These dresses are a girl’s best friend because they are easy to wear, comfortable, and work with any body type—but they are also very casual and limited by the season. For a long club maxi dress that you can wear any time of year, you should expect a different fit as well as a sexy cut that is more appropriate for cocktail parties, dance clubs and romantic occasions than for strolling at the beach. Accordingly, expect sexy maxi dresses to be more fitted at the top and to show off a little more skin, often with cutouts.
The key to rocking a sexy maxi dress like this is not only to focus on a good fit, though that is essential, but also to make sure your maxi dress isn't too “summer-y” or doesn't give off a daytime vibe. You can avoid this by choosing darker colors like black or navy blue as well as pairing it with some chunky gold or silver jewelry. Avoid colorful accessories to transform your long maxi dress into a true nightclub outfit. Add a chic clutch to finish off your look.
Your choice of footwear also matters. With a sexy maxi dress, most of the time you will be wearing heels/pumps and these will help to up the sexy level of the whole outfit. If you need flats in order to make dancing easier, we recommend gladiator sandals depending on the season.
