The maxi dress has become a staple in most Fashionistas closets’ as it has been around for several seasons. It's been seen over and over again on the runways like Chloe and a constant go to for celebrities and bloggers. So, one may ask why this garment continues to be such a statement season after season? The answer is simple. It’s flattering, flirty and looks good on almost every body shape. The fabulous thing about maxi dresses is that they come in various styles and prints, so it’s highly unlikely you’ll be seen wearing the same outfit as another stylish Fashionista.
This Fashionista stood out as she walked the city streets. As I mentioned, there is not just one way to wear a maxi dress. She paired hers with a knotted chambray top to incorporate another summer trend, the 70s inspired style. Because the print is so bold, she was careful not to overpower the look with a ton of accessories. I love how she wore a mix of bangles and other bracelets to polish off the look.
The great part to this look is that you don’t need a special occasion to wear a maxi dress. They work for day and night and can easily be transitioned from one to the other. For a nice daytime look, try this maxi dress and pair it with a chambray. Top the look off with a cute pair of sandals, and you’re set for a day out in the city. To transition to a night time look, loose the chambray and try a sleek blazer and wedges. Because the dress isn't very formfitting, go for a blazer that gives a little more structure and shapre.
Hint: One thing to remember about maxi dresses is shape and length. There are a countless styles of maxis, so when choosing a style be sure the fit is right. Don’t buy one that’s too baggy and gives you no shape. They’re meant to be loose and flowy, but just the right amount that you are still given a figure. When choosing the right length, I suggest not letting it drape all the way to the floor. I’d say the perfect length is right below your ankle, which will also elongate your legs. In the end, no matter what pattern you choose, or how you wear it, you'll look stylish in this reocurring length.
