The maxi dress is one of the most versatile pieces. It does not require much thought to look put together during the day and the elegant length is appropriate for most evening plans. Because of the continuous length, maxi dresses can effectively elongate your body frame, and hide pasty legs and wrinkly knees. Make sure to choose the right fit for your body shape.
Choose a solid color to create an elongated silhouette. Go for a slightly tailored cut and cinch the waist to accenture your curves. Hemline should end at the ankle instead of floor length for a more balanced proportion.
You can carry off smaller patterns and floral prints. Go for a soft, light fabric like cotton or chiffon that skim and show off your hourglass curves.
With a straight frame, the maxi dress will hang well to create a slim, flattering silhouette. Wear a thick belt to accentuate the waist for a more feminine look.
Go for a wider V-neckline and straight shoulder cut to give definition to your upper torso. For hemline, go for maxi length to create an elongated profile.
