Now that summer has officially hit the Pacific Northwest, I decided to try out a style I had been seeing everywhere, the Maxi Dress. This particular one is from Old Navy and I found it to be a great staple that I can easily dress up with different accessories. On this particular day, I wore it to work with a cropped jean jacket from Old Navy, a wide brown belt from Anthropologie, and some bracelets I made myself. (Which you can’t really see in the picture.)
I feel that this worked for my shape because I was able to balance my proportions with a cropped jacket on top, and accentuate my waist with the wide brown belt. I was worried about the knit fabric hugging my hips so I ended up buying the dress a size larger than I could have and brought it in at the waist with the belt. This way, it skims nicely off of my curvier parts and provides the shape I want.
