Avoid Too Much Print

Many maxi dresses have a lot of floral print. While you may think that these are beneficial, the print will actually draw the eye to the areas that are a problem; especially when the print is around those areas. If you want to keep the eye away from the issues then avoid print styles and opt for more plain ones.

That doesn’t mean they have to be less interesting. You can opt for a bold single color and add more with a shawl, a purse or your hair style. You could opt for a dress that has studded detail around the shoulders. You can wear more jewelry to draw the attention to the areas of the body that you really like, such as a long neck or beautiful eyes.

Avoid Horizontal Stripes

Stripes can be good but always go for the vertical ones. Vertical ones give the look that you are much taller and this helps to take inches from around your waist and legs. Horizontal stripes will make you look bigger than you already are, especially when the stripes are around the waist line. While the stripes may look cool, try the dress on and think about how you really look in it. If you are in doubt, as a friend to go along to give you their honest opinion; and don’t be offended if they tell you to try something else.

Watch Out for Too Many Accessories

It is possible to overload the accessories. Too many will draw too much attention to other places and can lead to you looking shorter or frumpier than you really are. Less is more, especially if you opt for larger, bulkier pieces of jewelry. If you are wearing a long chain around your neck, consider stud earrings instead of dropdown ones. This can look more flattering.

Add a Belt Around the Waist

Adding a belt around the waist can create the look that you have an owl glass shape. It will pull the material in to give the curves that you have always wanted. If you already have an owl glass shape, the belt will accentuate it more. However, this needs to be at the waist and not the hips. Wearing a belt at the hips will draw others’ eye-line to there and show off the area that you have wanted to hide.

Wear Heals with Your Dress

The taller you look, the thinner you will look. This is because taller people are able to carry more weight naturally. To help with that, wear a pair of heels. You may find that this actually helps to keep the dress off the floor. However, make sure that you are comfortable in your shoes. If you rarely wear heels and struggle to walk in them, you will look clumsy and unnatural.

Wearing a maxi dress with style is about using a few tricks on the eye. Vertical stripes and heels will make you look much taller, which helps you look thinner. When you wear bold prints and horizontal stripes, the eyes will be drawn to the most problematic areas and you will look bigger than you really are. Dress for your shape as well as your style and size.
