Well, you must know that there is a maxi dress for every occasion. The sleeveless and flowy ones with the prints are perfect for a casual day out with your friends. But, you can’t wear that dress to a formal meeting. For a formal meeting, you can opt for a monochrome dress. Still, if the dress is too printed and strappy, then avoiding it is a great idea.
2. Wearing wrong length dress

When we talk maxi dress, they are meant to be long and flowy. But, if your maxi dress cuts off and ends above your ankle, then it could be a complete disaster. An ideal maxi dress should cut off an inch below your ankle or else it will make you look shorter and will ruin the flow of the dress.
3. Not dressing according to your body type

The key to the gorgeous look is to wear an outfit according to your body type. And if you are wearing a maxi dress then, make sure you opt for a dress that highlights those areas of your body which you are confident about and the rest is concealed by the dress. For instance, if you have a broader torso, then draw attention towards your legs by opting for a maxi dress with silts and sleeves.
4. Say no to ballerinas shoes

Maxi dress looks perfect when they are paired with flats and open toe heels. Wearing ballerinas shoes with a maxi dress is a big no as it breaks the flow of the dress and kills your look entirely. Try to opt for a strappy flat that complements well with your dress and also makes you look taller.
5. Avoid over accessorising

It is suggested that you should choose your accessories according to the style of your dress. The main aim behind this is to balance your entire look. Like if you dress reveals the neck area the most, then opt for an elegant necklace to pair it with your dress. And if you are planning to wear a sleeveless dress, then opt for a chunky bracelet.
6. No leggings
