The maxi dress has become a summer staple – as the A list prove this week. And it doesn’t matter if you’re tall or petite, there is way to wear it for every shape. If you’re tall the golden rule is stick to flats, while shorter girls could try wedges, or truly embrace the hippy look with flats a la Rachel Bilson. Plus the maxi can look just as chic for smart summer weddings or parties, simply channel Nicole Richie’s glamorous 1970s look for inspiration.
