How to wear a maxi dress!

Find me on POLYVORE! http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/profile?id=59935 I have been a member since it first launched :) Almost 2 years!

First things first! I DO NOT FOLLOW TRENDS, I WEAR WHAT SUITS ME! I'm not one to go and get something just because it's "in". In fact if it's "in" then I wont wear it, I'm a rebel like that. :) I prefer simple pieces and statement jewellery.

Summer is almost upon us, here are some examples of how to wear a maxi dress, I love these dresses for summer, they are so comfortable and look so chic! Don't be scared of colour and accessorizing, who cares what people think or if you stand out from the crowd? Wear what makes you happy, I love to wear vivid colours during the summer as it just makes my day that much brighter!


Try clenching in your waist with a thin waist belt to accentuate curves. Tone down accessories when wearing a bright coloured dress.

Pile on the bangles, for a boho look. Keep it comfortable in flats.. also make sure the dress sweeps the floor, it's not a nice look when you can see your ankles.

Try wearing statement earrings OR a statement necklace, don't do both!

@anonymous yes I have ideas :) try to wear all one colour, let it sweep the floor.. Wear long pendant necklaces to elongate ur top half. Also, why not try adding some height by backcombing ur hair, a small and tidy quiff perhaps?

i love maxi dresses but im totally with you with the whole dont just wear it cause its 'in' - fashion to me is what you feel comfortable and beautiful in.

I'm exactly like you! I hate wearing what's in because everyone will have it. I don't like to feel like I'm in an uniform. ... and by the way, I LOOOOVE maxi dresses. The make me look taller and slimmer, I find and they add a tad of sophistication.
