Last month I challenged you to add a pop of color to your wardrobe. But now that spring is in full swing…why don’t we up the ante? When choosing a bright, colorful outfit consider dropping your hemline! Sweeping “day gowns” known as maxi dresses are cropping up on the high street in a rainbow of colors and a myriad of styles! A long dress will lend instant elegance to your daily stroll.
For the ensemble pictured here I chose a punchy shade of orange paired with aqua blue accessories. Rounding out the look is a modest beige clutch and a pair of strappy, metallic stilettos. However, flats would be a more practical choice if you’d rather save your soles! When styling a flowing maxi dress you’ll find a lot of reliable pieces in your wardrobe make sense with it’s silhouette. A denim jacket, for example, looks very cool with a maxi dress. Bonus points if you toss the jacket insouciantly over your shoulders. This is a trick all fashionistas know well and utilize often. Putting your arms trough the sleeves of a jacket is becoming a thing of the past! Google the word “shrobing” if you don’t believe me. 😉
As fashion evolves we find new ways to express ourselves through our sartorial choices. Whether it’s a dramatic maxi dress worn during the day or at night I think you’ll find yourself sashaying down the street with panache! As long as you feel comfortable you’ll radiate confidence…which is the very best look of all.
