During summer the only two acceptable parties to throw are BBQ and pool parties.Since summer's all about livin' easy, I wouldn't want you to stress about figuring out what to wear to these parties. So, I recommend - Floor grazing maxi dresses or skirts.
I picked this comfortable and down-to-earth (literally) dark blue maxi from Target. It has a cheerful pattern running through the center, an elastic around the waist and a sheer lower half for a peek of skin (one of my favourite looks), side slits for a sexy glimpse of leg. While its great for neutral accessories, I styled it up a little with a pearl necklace and an oversized flower ring.
As a summer staple maxi dresses inherently provide more coverage but can still be flirty and fashionable. However, I know that a lot of people struggle or hesitate to wear maxi dresses ( yes, mostly shorter, petite girls) so here are some tips for maxi-friendly dressing…
Heel up & chin up! - Don’t shy away from teaming longer lengths with heels, to bring balance. Kitten and block heels were invented for comfort and maxi lengths, of course.
Make it fit - If something is too loose and baggy, it can make you look bigger than you intend or sloppy and unkempt. On the other hand, don’t try to fit into something too tight just because of the size number on the tag. Different brands size their clothing differently, just ensure you get the right fit.
Be bold - Fashion is all about taking risks, I’ve seen girls style their maxi dresses with sweaters, blazers, and other bold layering ideas for an effortlessly unfussy yet chic look. The bolder the better.
