Just Before Sunset
Just before the sun sets here, and its nearly 9pm… The maxi dress comes out to play. The myth that all Summer dresses are short and bright colours, is just that, myth.
Although I wore a long black dress, its flowing chiffon overlay which billows in the sunlight breeze and the strapless overlay of ruffles made it very summery in my eyes…
The dress has great movement and is light and comfortable to wear. It has me dreaming of far exotic locations but if the sun holds out like this I will be happy right here.
As it is a simplistic dress, it is easy to accessorize. The addition of heels and a statement necklace take this dress from a bohemian day vibe to a sophisticated Summer Party…
I love the statement Grecian necklace of gold leaf-print. I have a love affair with all things Grecian fashion & this necklace caught my eye for this reason….
A different necklace, more colourful perhaps and colourful bag or shoes would again transform this dress.
I believe accessories are key to making an outfit your own, so always choose pieces you love and reflect your personality.
A maxi dress can be a great choice for Summer parties, weddings, barbeques and those holiday nights out. However length is important and if the dress is at your ankle without heels, wear flats. If its long enough for heels, wear them or get it taken up to suit your height/heel height.
When a maxi dress is worn at the right length it can elongate the body and is more flattering to your figure.
Hope you like my maxi (night-time look), keep an eye out for my day-time maxi look, coming soon!
