At first I wasn’t a big fan of long dresses. Having gone through the “granny dress” phase a long time ago, I did not want to revisit those bygone days of love and peace, not that I don’t believe in the concepts. And not being terribly tall, I thought that my frame would be overwhelmed by yards of fabric. I am happy to say that I was wrong. Long dresses are indeed feminine and flattering to almost every body type. They can be dressed down, to go to the beach and shopping around town or dressed up to go to cocktails and dinner.
How to wear a Maxi dress.
1. Make sure you choose a style that flatters your body type. Halter creates curves, strapless minimizes.
2. Hem the dress so it hits right above the ankle. It eliminates the dowdy look.
3. Wear with a pair of Platform Wedges for a bit more height and a taller silhouette.
4. Statement jewelry is the natural accessory to a maxi. The impact of big earring or necklace is a balance for the length.
