Celebrity Style: Maxi DressesFriday, March 23, 2012
Hi guys! I am getting back to a little bit of fashion blogging on Emily's Anthology, and hopefully expand this blog's reach a little!
I love the maxi dress for its forgiving design and this season we’re all set to invest in some statement prints and luxury fabrics. I'll show you just how to wear the maxi dresses of the moment, and help you pick the prints that will impress and flatter.
Chiffon maxi dresses are essential for the season. For some of you, as the days get warmer these figure-flattering frocks will keep you looking glam. A chiffon maxi dress fabric skims your curves for a flattering soft silhouette. A chiffon maxi in a floral print is a gorgeous option for the girl who wants a flattering and pretty look.
The strapless maxi dress is perfect for day or evening. For a stunning day look, a strapless maxi dress in soft cotton or jersey fabric is the perfect pick. Strapless maxi’s are great for the beach as they show off your shoulders and can be worn with a funky bikini top underneath. For evening, a glam maxi in velvet, silk or satin steals the show. Strapless maxi dresses are great for most body shapes and will make you feel like a princess, whatever the occasion.
A colourblock maxi dress is a stunning statement pick and we love retro inspired designs that are striking and a little different. Go for contrast colours like oranges and whites or pick something a little more subtle like pastel yellows and soft blues. A colourblock maxi dress is perfect for making a colour splash, so be bold when it comes to finding a dress that steals the show.
A striped maxi dress is a modern frock that really refreshes your wardrobe. Wide stripes create a bold and distinct style while finer stripes soften the look. A striped maxi dress gets top marks this season, so load up on cotton striped maxi dresses for day, or more subtle striped maxi dresses for evening.
A maxi dress is always a winner when it comes to dressing for an A-list look. Summer is all about colour and contrast so don’t be afraid to clash your prints for a statement style.
