Maxi Dresses For Summer 2013:
If you’re thinking to yourself right now, “OMG, I could NEVER wear a maxi dress…” think again. There are so many styles of maxi dresses so you can easily find one that works for you, regardless of your body type. If you love your legs and have super-toned quads, absolutely invest in a maxi dress with a slit up the sides. If you got it, FLAUNT IT!
If arms are more of your pride and joy opt for a halter dress or sleeveless version that totally puts them on display. If you want to accentuate your curves, you can match it with a leather belt wrapped around your waist, like Hilary Duff did. This will give you an hourglass shape and really spice up the look! If you are just looking to accessorize, you can add a loose, low-wasited belt around your hips, throw on a denim jacket, a scarf, or even wear a unique shoe with the dress so they peak out from under the fabric at just the right moments. Adding any accessory can personalize an outfit and make it original, especially a maxi dress.
Where Do I Wear My Maxi Dress?
WHEREVER and WHENEVER! Maxis are the perfect for any event, whether it’s indoors or outdoors. A maxi will leave you looking perfectly polished at a casual event, like a cookout or barbecue, while everyone else is rocking jeans or shorts. With a maxi dress you can always put together even if you don’t feel like getting dressed up.
You can also glam up your frock by adding gorgeous jewelry, like teardrop earrings or a long necklace, heels and heavy, dramatic eye makeup, a common occurance for Vanessa Hudgens, who always looks so put together in the trend. This would be appropriate for a graduation party or even a possibility for weddings or celebrations. Depending on how you choose to wear the dress, you can wear it anywhere you want!
It comes as no surprise that these dresses have hit the top of the trend charts. SHOP our top picks if you want to rock the summer style.
