Fashion Trend : Summer Maxi Dress + My-Wardrobe Giveaway Winner

Hi Everyone,

Striped Maxi - FoxHouse
Blazer - Mango
Watch - Chanel
Though summers are here, I am not ready to compromise on style. However, I can't ignore the comfort factor as well, since summers are not too generous with colors or fits. Finding a striking garment that satisfies our top outfit concerns and is a delight to wear is like the clothing equivalent of striking gold - Rare but Amazing. 

Now, Luckily, there is a wardrobe staple that not only meets the above criteria, but also the essence of summery chic ~ The Maxi Dress.

Maxi Dresses, can be worn in a casual way for day or dressed up for the evening. They not only come in an array of fits, flow and fabrics, they are adaptable and accommodating. Here's how to style Maxi Dress -

1. Pick the right fabric - Right fabric is most important aspect of the Maxi dress which decides its comfort, fall and fit. Often cotton fits in the best, however, Georgette with viscose lining also does the wonder.

2. Examine the length -  Maxi-dresses come in an array of different styles - with some falling just a little bit further from your knee and others playing happily around your ankles, so deciding on a length that you feel comfortable with while purchasing one is important and ultimately dependent on your height. Choosing a length that finishes just before your feet, or adjusting the hemline so that it does, is generally the most flattering style, and ensures that you won't be swamped in a sea of fabric !!

3. Choose your shoes - Wedges and flats are the key !! They are the soul-mate to maxis. Anything with a slight heel too will work, however, for heels lover like me, nothing else can fit better :)

4. Control the flow - To look stylish in longer hems without projecting any signs of frumpy-ness, is solely dependent on how you style it. Give shape to your maxi by throwing one fitted garment - waistcoat, blazer, shrug or a high-waisted belt are the tricks to control the frumpy-ness.

5. Accessories well - Personality-showing details in accessories like a bowler hat and boots or a quirky ribbon belt defines your persona and will make your maxi stand out. Finish your ensemble with a petite across-body bag which works perfectly to make it an unfussy outfit. For evening look, Satin shoes and subtle gold accents in cuff and bag will bring a sense of luxury to your captivating ensemble.

Prints, stripes, frills or solid colors !! Pick your Maxi and don it without fear :)
