Maxi Dress: Effortlessly stylish
The history of the maxi dress goes all the way back to 1968 when Oscar de La Renta created a cotton lace version for Elizabeth Arden Salon. The maxi was then, lacey and hemmed above the ankle. Many other notable designers like YSL and Dior also produced maxis around this time. However, it wasn’t until the early 1970s that the maxi firmly lodged itself as a fashion must-have. Today, it comes in many different types of materials and cuts. It’s the perfect stylish summer wardrobe option. Dress it up with jewellery, the right pair of shoes and bag and you will look the epitome of casual sophistication that can bring you anywhere and everywhere.
Women’s Fashion: Versatile and figure flattering
Wear it with flats and minimal accesories for a summer party by the beach or on a yacht; add bold wedges, a belt and some statement earrings and you are good to go for a date at a romantic restaurant or a fun night out in town. Headed to a dressy dinner function, wear it like Blake Lively, Kate Moss and numerous other Hollywood celebrities. The reason why this style of dress is so popular is because it not only helps its wearer to feel more feminine, the full-length dress covers thick thighs, wide hips; basically it is very figure flattering. However, you may wish to take note of the following tips to ensure that you get one that flatters your figure the best.
Loose-fitting, voluminous ones will look great on very tall, very thin or pregnant women. For the rest, especially petite girls, it’s better to pick one that skims the body so you won’t look boxy, swamped or overwhelmed by it. Use a belt to add some shape to your figure and create the illusion of a tinier waist and longer legs.
