I just purchased my first maxi dress today (plain green color). I never thought i'd actually buy one but I'm really short (5'0") and this one was the perfect length for me so i HAD to get it! anyway...do most of you wear wedges with them or just flip flops? I really don't know what shoes to wear maxi dresses with!

I love maxi dresses! You can wear flip flops or wedges with them! Whatever suits your mood, and the look you are going for.

i wear them with flip flops and they look good with gladiator sandals. I personally would not wear heels with them because I prefer a laid back look with maxi dresses

I have always wondered this, I'm a shorty too. I guess formally they look good with strappy heels and not so good with pumps or platforms. For a casual look I would say flip flops (gold would look great with that dress) or gladiators.

I also think flip flops, wedges or gladiators are great choices.

thanks everyone for your input! it seems as though everyone says flip flops! which is great! however when i tried on my dress yesterday and i was wearing flip flops, it wasn't so flattering on me, maybe it's b/c i'm so short lol..i haven't tried it with wedges yet but i hope it will look good with them!! i'm gonna try with some gladiator flats i bought the other day also...

I love maxi-dresses... I'm short, but I feel tall wearing them

I usually wear them with gladiator flats - or wedges... Depending on the length of the dress....

I was just out to TGIF yesterday with DH b/c he wanted to take me out since he got home late. Just thrown on my Maxi (free people - rainbow floral on dark brown "very hippie looking") and a pair of old thongs (leather flip-flop low wedge) that is kinda "japanese looking" and I am off.

I do love Maxi dresses (have a black Missoni Jeans jersey one (semi-shiny/silky) that still have to be worn), thinking of maybe getting another "casual" looking Maxi to add to my collection.

ok so i tried my maxi dress yesterday...and tried it with my gladiators (they are dark brown with gold hardware) and DID NOT LOOK good together :( then i tried it with some other heels i had and didn't look good...i tried it with my wedges and it looked okay..i think i will go with just regular flip flops b/c everything i tried looked wierd with it!!! :( i think b/c it's not long enough to cover the heels when i wear them and it doesn't look right....i think i will have to buy one thats longer so i can wear them with wedges :)
