So if you’re into modest wear, maxi dresses or tunics are surely one of the first choices for summers. With the huge variety of maxis available in every store and online, you can easily create your own maxi outfit for a lovely, comfortable, yet still modest look.

Even if you can’t find one like that for any reason, or if you fall in love with one that isn’t exactly modest, you can easily transform it into a modest one. For example, wear a monochrome tee under a sleeveless maxi or plain black tights, pants or jeans under one that is too short or has a slit.

If you have your heart set on a sleeveless maxi dress or one that has a deep neckline, then try wearing a shirt or tunic on top of it and you will be able to transform that beautiful maxi dress into a maxi skirt!

Belt it Up

Since most maxis come in loose fittings and it’s kind of hard to find a tailored one, adding a belt is one of the simplest age-old tricks. The belt gives shape to the maxi along with a more formal and well-polished look. This also gives a sophisticated and professional look to maxis so you can even wear them to work.

If you wish to look taller, you can use a broad belt along with heels, as it will give the illusion of longer legs. But if you’re short or curvy, go for slim and sleek belts that you wear around the thinnest part of your waist, as it will make your body seem more proportionate.

One trick to remember if you want to avoid looking short or wide is that the belt should never be in a contrasting colour to your maxi. The best choices would be dark coloured belts such as black, brown or dark blue.
