The Night Time Maxi

The maxi dress has made an undeniable comeback this year.  While the lengthened hemline is refreshing, there are many mistakes to avoid with the maxi-dress.  Avoid choosing a dress that overwhelms you and gives you no shape.  Everyone has a waist, lets see yours!  In addition, Hippy-chic is cool...  looking homeless in an over-sized monstrosity is not.  If you are looking to achieve the hippy-chic aesthetic use accessories to polish your over all look.  Avoiding a tiered skirt can help lengthen your bottom half.


I choose a translucent maxi because you can do a lot with it and it easily transforms from day to night.  This one from American Apparel comes in a variety of colors.
