are you wearing the right maxi dress?
it’s week 2 of my july summer essentials special, and this week we look at maxi dresses!
maxi dresses are everywhere right now and for good reason. they ‘re an easy pick for the summer heat because they’re comfy, breezy and can still be chic.
but as you know, you have to choose carefully. first based on your body shape and second based on your personality.
let’s review the best options for each body shape shall we?!
-any volume that gives the illusion of hour-glass shape
-any graphic detail that gives the illusion of hour-glass shape
-kaftan styles that can be worn with skinny belts
Angelina Jolie + Naomi Campbell
-any volume on bottom half that balances out width of shoulders
-avoid halter strap style dresses
-pleated skirt is a great option for you
-v-neckline or interesting detail around neckline
-try and keep darker colors on bottom half
-open neckline/ v-neckline
-any wrap style bodice
-keep volume to a minimal… styles that fit closer to your body are best
do you have any maxi dresses in your closet now? how do they measure up with the guidelines for your body shape? could any of them be altered to make them fit better?
