What Is A Maxi Dress?

If you're like us,then we know you love a great Maxi Dress. But, what is a maxi dress exactly? 

A maxi dress is a floor or ankle length informal dress. Maxi dresses are formfitting at the top and loose flowing at the bottom, cut to flow over the body. They are usually made out of cotton or polyester and come in a variety of necklines, colors and patterns.

Yes, everyone can wear a Maxi Dress but there are some things you need to think about to look your best in that Maxi Dress. So here are some of my “Best Dressed Maxi Dress Tips!”

Length – Make sure it is not too short and cuts you off at the ankles this may make you look shorter than you are or that it shrunk in the wash.  It should slightly drag the floor.

Large Breasts / Plus Size – If you are lucky to be well endowed you should wear a maxi dress with straps or sleeves.

Small Breasts– You can get away with the strapless because well those little girls are safe and secure.  However by wearing one with straps it creates more definition around that area or if the straps are wide enough you can wear a bra to push those puppies up.  You may want to also consider a belt around the waist so it shows some curves.  You don’t want to look like you just threw on a sheet.

Shoes- Maxi dresses are supposed to be pretty casual so cute sandals or flip flops are perfect.  If you are looking to dress it up or add some height, wedges and espadrilles are best.  All of the nude, taupe and neutral tone sandals and wedges are great because they go with so many things and those wedges can work their way into fall with jeans as well.

Here are a few of my faves from the Maxi Collection. These are the perfect, length, have sleeves and can accommodate any body frame.

I absolutely love the off the shoulder You Make Me Wanna maxi dress. The color scheme is unique and the feathery pattern is also like no other. Plus it gives me the opportunity to continue to expose my broad shoulders at my height of 5’11.
