These floor skimming dresses are great in hot weather and for taking on holiday. They are brilliant for those who want to stay cool but do not wish to show off their legs. Pick cotton like or silk materials and stay clear of clingy or jersey fabrics as these tend to stick to you, instead of flattering your curves.
Who should wear this style?
This shape is great for people who are tall, especially as you can pull off the whole ‘hippy’ look by teaming your dress with flat sandals. Most body shapes can wear this dress, but they are particularly flattering for a pear shape as they tend to emphasise your top half and skim over your hips and thighs. The best place to buy this dress is from online wholesale womens clothing portals.
Who should steer clear?
If you are very petite, then this is a difficult look to pull off, however it can be done. Try to find a style of dress that is not too voluminous and has a belt so that you can define your waist or hips. You could also consider wearing the style with wedged shoes instead of flats to give you extra height.
Most maxi dress styles on the high street have a halter neck, so those with broad shoulders should stay away from this style and find one with thicker straight straps.
If you are considering a maxi dress that is psychedelic, then remember that pattern always emphasises, so wear the pattern over a part of your body you want to show off!
