Maximise your Maxi Dress
Longer hems don’t have to mean formal ball gowns. Maxi dresses can be casual, easy to wear, stylish and comfortable, while still being chic and elegant. The boho trend is perfect for pear shapes as it disguises larger hips and thighs. If your legs are your problem area, flash the flesh up top and flatter your legs with a maxi. For maximum style team your maxi with a gladiator sandal. An empire style line is ideal for drawing attention to the smallest part of the body, the waist, and making you appear thinner. Adding a belt would also achieve a thinner appearance, again emphasising the waistline. Petite? Avoid being drowned in fabric as this will make you appear shorter. frockadvisor suggest that our pint-sized readers opt for a more fitted maxi. Maxi cuts that skim over the lower body will create a clean silhouette. Petite style icons should style their maxi with open toed sandals or wedges to add to add height.
