Style Challenge- Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses have been a favorite of mine since I can remember. Mainly because I have "the figure for it." But I disagree! I personally prefer them because anyone can wear them AND look good in them! It's all about choosing the right maxi dress for you, whether you are short, tall, petite or plus...there is a maxi that's just right for you.
Maxi dresses are among the most versatile of garments, playing into more than one season and offered in many different styles and fabrics.  They can be dressed up as floor length evening wear or dressed down as a casual summer dress.  

Based on their cut and fabric, they tend to hang well on most figures and can be even more figure flattering when paired with the proper waist belt. I recommend something similar to the Cutout Waist Belt by BCBGMAXAZRIA or something skinny and ornate like the Link and Plate Detailed Waist Belt from ASOS.

When it comes to the shoes, I think this is where your better judgement must come into play. If you are tall, you might be able to get away with flip flops and flat for the casual look. If you are shorter, I recommend wedges. For a more demur look, high heels and strappy sandals are the best options.
Here are a few variations of maxis and how I styled them. ENJOY!
