happy first day of spring my messy lovers! its crazy how fast time has gone, i can't believe we are already close to being done with March and onto April....ahhh it needs to stop...i turn 27 in May & let me tell you i am freaking out...but we won't get into that now, trust me there will be a lot of birthday talk closer to my birthday...haha!
sooo today i am going to talk about MAXI DRESSES...they are another big trend this year & a trend that a lot of people don't like to try.....when people think of the maxi dress they think a long, over powering, loose dress that just drags on the floor...newsflash it isn't...not even close....sure, you might find that dress & even try on that dress but it only means that's not the right maxi for you....maxi's come in all types of colors, material, sizes, & lengths...you really can find the right maxi for you if you give it a chance...
i know for me i NEVER thought i could wear one because i am only 5'3 & i didn't want to look any shorter than i already do....but that changed when i got one for free while working at Nordstrom....to my surprise it didn't make me look short or stubby....it actually fit well, not to mention they are SO comfortable & lightweight, its like wearing nothing...so when trying on a maxi make sure if you are shorter that the dress is tighter rather than baggy....if you feel there is just way too much length on the bottom wear heels or platforms with the maxi..its okay if it hits the floor & you're still wearing flip flops or sandals, it gives it a very relaxing, chill look...but if its dragging like you're wearing a wedding dress then i would pass....also a maxi dress doesn't necessarily mean it always has to be floor length, there are maxis that come in all lengths, however above the knees is not a maxi dress.
also choosing the right color or design is important too.....if you're a little larger i would suggest a plain color rather than stripes or a design...since the dress basically hugs your entire body you don't want to get lost in the dress or make the dress add weight to you...that's why choosing the right color & look is crucial...i love the V-neck maxi's, they add a very feminine feel, plus it's a little bit more of a sexier look...however if you want to wear a V-neck minus the sexified look try a jean jacket with it, or even if you dare a vest.
soo will you be tackling the maxi trend this year? or have you already? what do you love to wear with your maxi's? comment below, i always enjoy reading yur thoughts!
