Whether you are a “Skinny Minnie” or if there is a little bit more of you to love, the key to wearing maxi dresses is confidence – and loads of it!
Most maxi dresses are typically cut on an empire line, meaning that the waist line for the dress is raised well above the normal waistline. It actually is cut just below the bust so that the fabric hangs freely over your stomach and hips. This type of dress can really enhance the appearance of your bust and skims over other parts of the body, creating a gorgeous curvy silhouette that others will envy.
How should you wear a maxi dress?
- Maxi dresses can swamp girls who are a little shorter so petite lovelies should stick to more tailored styles that are a little shorter, like this cute polka dot chiffon dress that has attracted rave reviews on the Yours Clothing website.
- Don’t wear high heels with your maxi dress, stick to flats or kitten heels otherwise you will not only make you look over dressed for the day, you’re not helping the ‘ethereal’ bohemian theme that most maxi dresses are trying to achieve. By wearing flat sandals you will look like you’re floating rather than walking!
- Keep jewellery to a minimum of either a long pendant or a chunky bracelet if you’re wearing it during the day. Let the dress do the talking!
- Accessorise with a large handbag to balance the outfit out
That is all there is to it! We’ve been promised a hot summer this year so keep cool with a floaty maxi dress from Yours Clothing.
