Maxi dresses : How to wear them?

The dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines.  It must accompany its wearer and when a woman smiles the dress must smile with her.  ~Madeleine Vionnet

If I told you I didn't feel every bit sexy in this long flowy maxi dress, I would be lying!
Considering the Indian climate , I wonder why we don't incorporate more of maxi dresses in our daily dressing.
Absolutely comfy and feminine they are the perfect summer companions.
Perhaps, it is the non-availability of classy maxis that leads to a slower adoption of this trend.

Give the girl her perfect maxi dress and she will rock the world!

This Maxi dress combines 3 of this season's hottest trends- Tangerine, Tie-dye and ofcourse maxi dresses!
I have added a blue jeans vest (or waist )to add a boho touch to the look.

Maxi dresses : The right length

The length of the maxi matters.
It should end just below your ankle.So petite girls can hem the maxi to get the right length and taller than average girls can add a little border for the right length in case they don't find maxis of their length.

Maxi Dresses: Which footwear to choose?

A trip to the local shop or a brunch date with the girls can do with a pair of flats. Flats make the look casual and you can easily move in them.
Maxis work best only with open toe footwear so avoid your closed toe shoes like ballerinas or pumps.
When you head to a party, pair your dress with wedge heels or peep-toe pumps.

Maxi dresses: How to avoid looking like a tent?

Well-tailored jackets ,vests, belts all add to the structure of the dress to avoid a tent-like look.In case of strappy maxis, 3/4th sleeve jackets also help to hide the flab!

Maxi dresses: How to choose Prints 

For any body type ,solid colors will always work well. So choose the color that suits you and get yourself a maxi dress in that color.Besides this:

1. Petite frames: Delicate/fine prints work well.Avoid large prints which can weigh you down.Look for
V-necks as they add length.

2.Tall frames: Avoid very large prints as you can look like a walking bedsheet. Medium prints look good .

3.Heavy frames: Absolutely avoid delicate prints.Bold prints will draw attention away from the problem areas. Darker hues & a nice jacket both slim down the look wonderfully.

While you walk down the steps you need to hold up the maxi , how ladylike!
