One of the best things about the summer time, aside from the amazing weather, vacation from school and of course my birthday (July 21st!) is the ability to wear
less clothing! I know all you ladies feel me on that haha. It's best feeling to get out of those stiff jeans and slide into something more comfortable like.. a maxi dress! Here are some funky ways to rock yours:
1. CHANNEL YOUR INNER CELEBRITY
Put on a straw hat and big sunglasses with your maxi dress and I swear you'll feel like a superstar!
2. ADD A SCARF
There's two ways I've seen people wear scarfs with maxi dresses that I adore. The first, as seen on Love Brown Sugar blogger Christina is worn as the top part of the maxi. This is so funky and I love it because it allows you wear the same maxi and have it appear as a completely different dress! Plus, if you keep changing up the pattern on the scarf, your possibilities are endless.
The second way is of course, on your head. I'm a lover of the turban style.. I find it fresh and different. If your not into the turban, you can always wear it as a regular scarf and let the ends hang down to one side (sort of like a ponytail)
3. BOLD JEWELERY
Pile on accessories for a glamorous look. Maxi's look great with long necklaces, lots of bangles and gaudy rings. My new obsession: Feathers, they look great with everything!
4. MOTORCYCLE EDGY
Add a leather for a
5. OVERSIZED ARM CANDY
6. THE CROP TOP
Contrary to what many believe, you don't have to
CURVY GIRL TIPS:
- Try belting the smallest part of your waist when wearing your maxi to accentuate or create the smallest part of your body.
- Avoid maxis too large; we don't want to appear boxy. Settle for a dress that skims your curves (not too tight and not too loose)
- If you a large bust, opt for thick or halter top dresses; spaghetti straps will make you look disproportionate.
