The maxi dress is back and it is a fashion hit for the summer. For those unfamiliar with the maxi dress it is a long casual dress that in the past has been worn as a cover up for the beach or just as a very casual summer dress. The maxi dress has gotten a makeover this year though and is being seen on celebrities out for a casual stroll and even on the red carpet.
One of the best things about the maxi dress is that it can be worn by anyone and any body shape. They are loose and comfortable and be dressed up or down for any occasion. Before running out to buy one of these great dresses there are a few things you should take into consideration. Even though they are loose and comfortable, they do come in different styles so it is important to get the right one for your body type.
Choose an empire waist if you are on the shorter side, and wear it with higher heeled sandles to help make you look longer. If you have curves, choose a solid color or a very small pattern. If you are larger on the bottom, find a maxi dress that has a great looking neckline so the focus is up and not down.
For any shape, make sure you choose a dress that does not have a large amount of fabric. To much fabric will not be flattering for any shape, not matter what size you are. Don’t forget to accessorize as well, and don’t be afraid to throw a jacket on over it for cool evenings.
