The Maxi Dress

7 04 2010

Daffodils are in bloom, Easter has come and gone, and the clocks have gone foward, could it possibly mean that Spring is here? Well, here in England the weather might not show it but it’s time to say goodbye to all your favourite winter clothes for a few months, and say hello to your Spring/Summer wardrobe!

One of my favourites has always been the Maxi Dress, it’s versatile and fashionable!  Wear with gladiator sandals and a slouchy bag  during the day, or heels and a shrug for a night-time look!

If you’re petite, go for a more structured dress that sits close to your body – you want to avoid looking swamped by the dress. Smaller prints also look best on petite girls, and for extra height wear with wedges or high heels.
If you’re a larger, more body-conscious woman, maxi-dresses are great for hiding large hips or thighs. Go for large prints to flatter your figure. For big-busted women choose maxi dresses with large straps or a halter neck, avoid thin straps as these will make your bust look bigger.
