Styling A Maxi From Day To Night

missguided maxi dress
Hello, so a little style post from me today. It's no secret that maxi dresses are my favourite, I have a wardrobe full of them and I can't see my obsession ending any time soon. When Missguided challenged me to style a maxi dress from day to night, I jumped at the chance. I am the Queen of maxi dresses, even at just 5ft3, I believe anyone can pull off a maxi dress, day or night (rain or shine!) Let's do this...

My toe nails are still intact from my trip to Paris - I love them so much.


For a day-friendly look I put this dress with some white sandals, a nice over-sized bag and neutral lipstick and natural hair. I think this is the perfect Summer dress.

The dress made me feel like a little bit of a princess!

To quickly and easily change this into an evening look, I added a trench coat with matching nude chunky heels (surprisingly comfy too!) and then a black clutch bag to match my black bracelet, oh, not forgetting the red lips either. The Aspinal travel wallet is the best £125 you will ever spend, you may remember it from my Vietnam post - I use it as a travel wallet, a purse and a clutch bag. I'm obsessed with it. 

Mac/Trench Coat: Old from Zara similar here (ASOS), here (ASOS sale!) and here (my favourite). I also love this Missguided sleeveless one / Shoes: Public Desire here / Travel Wallet/Clutch: Aspinal

  3. Absolutely loving my maxi's at the moment, especially the one that is featuring on my blog on Sunday (I can't wait to share that one!)
    There is something about the blush pink and the maxi dress that makes me go all girly and want to swish around like a princess!
    I also love that wallet & the shoes.

  14. You look divine in this maxi Em, a gorgeous shape. I have to agree, at 5ft4 I'm not always the right height for a maxi but they're so darn comfy and easy to style
