I broke the fashion rules & wore a maxi dress

Maxi dresses are really one of those fashion items that most women either love or hate.  I was on the fence when they became popular a few years ago.  I liked the look of maxi dresses on other ladies.  For me, I wasn't sure it would work because I am plus size.  So glad I'm not one to listen to those fashion rules, which say some one my size should not wear maxi dresses.  Once I tried on a maxi dress I knew it was love.  I love the comfort, the ease of wearing a maxi and the over all look.  I encourage all women to try on a maxi dress and see for your self.  Not every trend or style will work on everyone, but you never know until you try. I have to admit there are some trends that just didn't work for me.  Don’t dismiss a trend or style until you try it on and find out if it works for you body shape.  How many times have you seen a dress or other clothes that you love and once you try it on end up hating it?  The hanger is not a good indicator of how it will look on you.  The reverse has happened to me.  I see on a hanger and don’t like.  But a few times I have try it on “just for fun” and I end up loving in on my body.  When it comes to fashion there are no more rules you need to follow.  Wear what you love and makes you feel good, regardless of what so called “fashion experts” tell you.  Blogging has definitely opened my eyes to fashion and being more open to wearing things I once would have never considered.  What works for one person may not work for another.  So my best advice for you is, try on everything that catches your eye. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.

  1. I think maxi dresses are gorgeous if they are a true maxi. Many shops are trying to cash in on the maxi trend but the dresses only hit mid-calf or above the ankle which I hate. A maxi should at least touch the top of the foot. I love your dress and you look great in it. Wonderful color too.

  2. I think you look great! And I agree with you whole-heartedly about trying the trends before you write them off or embrace them. I used to think I couldn't wear maxi dresses because I am so short. They've become a closet staple in the last two years for the same reasons you mentioned! :)
