OOTD Tie Dye Side Split Maxi Dress

I’m always on the look out for new maxi dresses or midi dresses that flatter my figure. I’m 5ft 10 so finding a maxi dress long enough isn’t always that easy. I’ve found with midi dresses the normal t shirt shape doesn’t flatter my pear shaped body.

When I was in Swansea visiting the Benefit Boutique at the weekend I saw this dress in the window of Quiz I had to go and try it on. I love that the shape of it is a bit different and not something I’ve seen too much of. Quiz isn’t usually a shop I’d think to go in as it’s always a bit tacky prom looking in the window for my tastes.

Tie dye is definitely not a trend I thought I’d be sporting this summer. It looks great on some people but I didn’t expect it to on me. I love the bright colours of this dress. It also comes in Black and Stone combination and Mint and Neon Green. It retails for £24.99 and can be purchased from Quiz.


I love that the dress has a rouched area around the stomach. Perfect for hiding any lumps and bumps and making everything appear smooth. It also means you aren’t limited with underwear. Some maxi dresses due to colour and cut can mean you have to be careful not to show the dreaded VPL.

The dress isn’t quite floor length on me but due to the split and the cut I don’t think it matters. It’s a soft stretchy material and so comfortable.

The split on the dress sit’s quite high on me. I am tall though and think it would sit lower on most people. I find that even though the split is quite high it doesn’t blow up in the wind and the high neckline on it still leave it not looking over the top.


You can pull the dress so the split either sits at the front or the side of it. It means the dress is comfy and easy to walk in and stops it being too tight.

I also love that it can be styled so many ways. I’ve been pairing it with my fake vans (Featured in this OOTD) and cropped demin blazer for a laid back look.


It also looks great paired with flip flops and would be a great beach cover up. The little capped sleeves would be perfect for holidays when the shoulders have been burnt. I always seem to do this.


Lastly it could easily be paired with sky high heels and you’re ready for a night out!!


I love it when I find something unexpected. I’ll definitely be picking up the black and stone version and checking out more of Quiz’s maxi dresses.

Love M
