Last but not least, in case you were wondering how to pump up your maxi-style Vogue has shared some suggestion on how to play the maxi dress out of the box.

“A maxi with a high slit always adds a major oomph factor. Plus, it shows off your shoes.

Speaking of shoes, don’t go with the obvious gladiators; a chunky heeled sandal will look just as fabulous.

Don’t leave the maxi just for the day: add a leather jacket and some gold accessories, and you’ve got yourself a great night-out look.

Ditch the gold and swap it for oxidised silver for a more bohemian vibe.

Wear your jeans under a high slit if you feel like mixing things up.”
