Maxi – The Classic Stunner

Today let’s talk about maxi dresses, or shall I say ‘I want to talk about Maxi dresses, since it’s my blog and that’s what today’s outfit pictures are all about’..!! pssst…
Well, anyways, you will have to bear with me, cause I have mixed feelings for Maxi dresses (like I do for SRK, but let’s leave that topic for another post).

I feel Maxi dresses are themed around romanticism and femininity. I love the way the maxi dresses impart sensuality. The fitted upper body and the flowing bottom present a likable contrast that all of us love to embrace. Here are some Pro’s and Con’s of maxi dresses –

Pros –

  1. The first and the most important being – it is so comfortable! Secondly, the maxi makes you look like a Greek Goddess in a Roman style, which is a plus point, any day!!
  2. If you are slim and tall, this can (read ‘should’) be your go-to choice in summers! Jeans is so boring now, at least for me. What do you think?
  3. It gives you a sexy bohemian look, and who doesn’t like that? Key tip – Accessorize with lots of rings and cuffs, and chunky jewelry for a boho look. Or keep it simple with just a watch and a simple piece of jewelry (and/or a hat) if you are not interested in taking the boho-route!
  4. Its sexy! (I bet you are with me on this!). And, most importantly, it elongates the figure. That’s a Bonus!
  5. You don’t have to worry about shaving your legs! Ha! Life-saver.
  6. Easy washroom breaks! Do I need to elaborate, or you got it? Hope you got it!
  7. Day at the beach – Use it as a cover up with your sexy bikini! You may not need to buy a separate cover-up. Voila! Money-saved!
  8. Dress for work – Pair it with a blazer and you are ready for office! Ok, I agree some offices have a strict dress policy, but still, this point can be considered as a valid one! No?

Add more, people, let’s make this list going..

Cons –
  1. Usually made for ‘tall’ people, since others would have to get alterations done. I know, that’s bad, very bad! Can understand.
  2. Climbing up and down the stairs (wearing a maxi). Need I say more?
  3. There is no chance for you to win that race (around the kids, or even if it is a spontaneous race on those weekend picnics)! Nobody likes to lose. Right!
  4. Imagine it rains and you are drenched and now a long piece of cloth is clinging to your whole body and those legs! Ahhh.. nightmare!

Care to add more?

Key Tips –

  • Maxi dresses are suitable for both formal and semi-formal occasions. Hence, dress up or dress down as you like!
  • Bold prints look good on women with good height! Hence, if you are not that tall, opt for solid colored maxi’s (or small prints on dark colors) since, that would help in elongating your figure.
  • Choosing darker colors like black, navy, burgundy will also help you look slimmer.
  • The key is to accessorize! A hat, a scarf, gladiator shoes, the list is just endless!
