Egypt Lookbook: One Easy Maxi Dress


When we went to see the lesser known but equally important Pyramids at Saqqara & Dashur, and the museum of Memphis on our Day 3 in Egypt, I had to face two sartorial dilemmas before getting dressed: 1) Modest dressing while not loosing my personal style, and 2) Comfort, because it involves walking in and around dusty ruins, and protecting skin and hair from getting minorly damaged. A long maxi dress with covered sleeves was the clear-cut choice for this occasion ticking both the boxes of my dilemmas.

This gorgeous floral maxi dress is perfect for not only all your summer events but even in less colder winter like the one you experience in Egypt. You can dress it up for your summer BBQs or if you are like me, even for  holidays.  Fully covered arms and modest neck line have made this a perfect dress to wear during a day out in Egypt. Drawstrings tie belt has kept the definition of the waist without looking like that you are lost inside the dress.

I teamed it with round shape sunnies and a floppy woollen hat.

Top tip: If you’re searching for a new way to dress up modestly or layer your winter look with spring-summer vibe, try wearing a floral maxi dress and complete the look with hats (give your head scarf a break) and a pair of leather ankle boots. Seems like a good choice, no?

Stacked rose gold finish rings, a statement watch in matching tone and a cuff didn’t take away the focus from the dress and match-your-bag-with-shoes trend.

This flowing maxi dress gave me a nice escape from the dreary December weather and I felt immediately re-energized thinking about the warm air, beautiful tropical prints and its boho vibe , and  neck detailing with tassels.

I find that each of the accessories worn was perfectly suited for soaking up the possibilities of a sunny day and exploring the surroundings, whether foreign or familiar.

It’s time to get out there and really live in an easy maxi dress, be it summer or winter.
