The Maxi Edit: Trailing Tales

The veritable maxi… Making waves since de la Renta, Dior, and Saint Laurent! A favourite go-to for almost every kind of dresser out there, the maxi dress has long made its impression in fashion circuits across the world. And for the modest dresser, the maxi brings the best of all worlds; length, style, and ease of wear.

Maxis have the most basic of features. Most comprise a full skirt, dropping down from a barely-fitted waistline and a variety of sleeves and necklines to experiment. For the modest dresser, this instantly and usually translates to full coverage and style impact in the forms of colours and details.

Maxis is also easy to lend a twist to. Adorned with hijabs, or with statement accessories, a maxi can go from am to pm seamlessly. We love these pieces, reiterating chic style and breezy elegance. And with our style tips and advice, your basic maxi will in itself be the absolute star of your wardrobe.

Epitomising simple elegance, the Dark Maroon Arya Gown embodies a decadent maxi silhouette. Featuring a classic flowing trail, with the means of a banded waist giving way to delicate pleats, it creates a wonderfully stylish effect. Simple sleeves complement a classic neckline. And dual-layered fabrics ensures full opaqueness while still creating a delicately textured getup. Wear this gown with evening accessories, such as a metallic belt. The shade works well with everything from lights to brights, while you finish off the look with one of our classic hijabs.

What a difference lace make to a dress! Case in point, this Washed Navy Panelled Lace Dress. Displaying a beautiful merger of the vintage and the contemporary, this is our favourite pick for your next important occasion. The lace overlay on multiple panels creates a stunning aesthetic. Featured on the bodice and on the hip, the lace is finished off with a 3-D edge for a refreshing update. Also added are delicate, scalloped lace edges to the sleeve hems, hem, and neckline, elevating its dainty details. And finally, the Georgette finish and the rich evening colour wraps it all up with an absolute high fashion take. The beauty of the dress demands that accessories be kept to a minimum. A hint of heels, at the most. Let it speak for itself.

A delightful symphony of an impactful peony print with the simplest of cuts, this maxi exemplifies summer dressing. Prints continue to dominate runways season after season, and a classic floral print like this one enables you to embody that style with complete modest panache.
