THE NEW MAXI RULES

Get ex­cited – fancy floor-graz­ers are firmly back on the fash­ion map. Here’s how to wear yours now

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK - words: BAR­BARA MCMIL­LAN @BARBARAMCMILLAN

If you’ve been stock­pil­ing this hero sum­mer sta­ple for some time now but feel like you’ve fallen out of love with the look, we have good news. There are plenty of easy out­fit ideas to steal from the bril­liantly dressed style set, who’ve slowly been tempt­ing us to slip back into some­thing longer.

So what’s new style-wise? We’re re­think­ing the heels-and-pret­typrints combo pre­vi­ously re­served for fancy oc­ca­sions and in­stead we’re slip­ping into well-worn train­ers or an­kle boots to make our maxis re­ally go the dis­tance. Make room in your wardrobe for any­thing with a sleeve, a high neck or an asym­met­ric hem­line and wear with util­ity shirts, denim jack­ets and supersized sun­nies. Re­mem­ber to em­brace ex­cess: ruf­fles, bold prints and vivid hues reign supreme RN and any­thing with ex­tra swish is a win­ner.

Equally, evening styles shouldn’t be re­stricted to wed­dings. Off­set your la­dy­like dress with hi-top train­ers, sleek sum­mer slid­ers and chunky jew­ellery to add in­stant cool points and nail that new-sea­son look.
