Dressing To The Max: Getting the Most Out Of Plus Size Maxi Dresses
Posted by IGIGI on July 24, 2014
Maxi Dresses have been a popular trend for spring/summer for the past few years and the same goes for plus size maxi dresses as well! This breezy and easy to wear silhouette is one of the most versatile. It transitions easily from laid back and bohemian to ultra glam – with a high waist silhouette, reminiscent of Halston. While you may think maxi dresses can be limiting, we’re sharing some ideas for how to truly take your dresses to the max – and get the most out of your plus size maxi dresses!
1. Add Chic Layers
Make your plus size maxi dress a season-less staple by adding chic layering pieces. This is an easy way to be able to wear your favorite maxi dress year round! In San Francisco, our summers tend to average around the mid 60’s (with lots of fog in-between) so layering is key! This is a perfect balance of summer time wearability with fall sensibility. I added one of my favorite vintage denim jackets and our new carry-all Hunter Hobo bag (on site soon!) to create a look that’s perfect for running weekend errands around town.
2. Create an easy cocktail look -add metallic accents!
Our Emma Shirt Maxi Dress is a great daytime option that is as chic as it is easy to wear! This style also makes a perfect blank canvas for whatever look you’d like to create! One rule to remember when styling simple silhouette is an easy way to glam it up is by adding metallic accents! A bold cuff and neutral colored stone earring takes this casual style into night. Add a carry – all clutch for evening and you are set!
3. Make your maxi’s work! – style in work wear pieces
There is no reason why you can’t make your plus size maxi dresses work hard for you – especially in the office! While a maxi dress may not be your first choice for office attire, they can easily transition into a work wear staple! Georgette of “Grown and Curvy Woman” styled our Linea Dress with a classic blazer, in a fun color, to create a fun and colorful office look! Add your favorite pair of pumps and carry-all satchel to craft a unique look around your favorite maxi!
