History of the Maxi Dress
It seems through the images we have as reference that the maxi dress has always been around. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that the long skirt became a fashion staple. Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta started the trend that would continue around the world until today.
The reason that the maxi style continues to be a popular choice is the way it feels and looks. It’s a flattering style on women of all body shapes. There’s also something about a full length skirt that makes you feel more dressed up, feminine, and elegant. That’s why maxi dresses are the natural choice for formal affairs.
Maxi dresses are just as natural a fit for events that take place outdoors on a grassy lawn as they are at black tie affairs. The features and fabrics are what set the different styles apart and make them perfect for certain types of events.
Although the long hemline of the maxi dress has stayed the same through the decades, the other features have changed. The style details and fabrics used make the maxi a favourite for everything from beachwear to formal gowns. Once again, this decade has brought an increase in the number of women who consider their maxi skirts “go-to” garments for all kinds of occasions.
At Love Honor, we focus on the style details that make the maxi dress the best choice for special and formal occasions. The longer hemline is not only preferred in many cases; but the most formal occasions and black tie affairs call for it. Maxi dresses are considered the essential garment for fancy events. We make the styles that you will want for all of your formal occasions, including weddings.

How to Choose the Perfect Maxi Dress for Your Event
The perfect maxi dress for an event makes you feel equally beautiful and comfortable, regardless of what else you want your dress to accomplish. At Love Honor, we give our dresses the right attention to detail to achieve everything you want from your maxi dress.
All of our designs are made to fit your body and flatter every curve. The quality materials we use include feminine style lace and crepe with just enough stretch to hug your body. We add full linings and moulded breast cups to give you support and coverage that makes you and your dress look great.
Our assortment of styles allows you to select a dress that emphasises your best features. Choose a V neck style to accentuate a long, beautiful neck. Off the shoulder styles call attention to your décolleté while our fitted designs emphasise your feminine form.
All of our maxi dresses come in flattering, feminine colours women love for weddings and all types of formal events. Like our dress designs, the colours we offer are flattering with all complexion and hair colours. Choosing a style and colour that is flattering to you personally couldn’t be much simpler.
We do things a little differently than most other online formal stores that sell maxi dresses in Australia. For one, our dresses are made to order. They are cut to order and delivered approximately 12 to 14 weeks from the order confirmation. We also use our own size chart instead of making them to your measurements. This allows us to stay consistent in our sizing and maintain the best fit from one customer to the next.
Each of our dresses is thoughtfully designed to inspire confidence, elegance, and a feeling of femininity. We believe that the way you feel while wearing one of our dresses has a lot to do with the beautiful appearance you create. Each design is made in house and with the purpose of flattering the human form. Once the fit is right, everything else is just details!
Our maxi dresses are designed to transcend the seasons. Once you own a Love Honor dress, you can wear it for years without it ever going out of style. You’re going to love the way you look and feel in it so much, you’ll want to wear it every chance you get.
Women buy our maxi dresses from Australia boutiques all the time because they want to look their best. Now, you have the option to buy our maxi dresses online and enjoy the same great styles from any location.
