One of this year’s trends, the maxi dress, makes a perfect mother of the bride outfit and can even work for wedding guest dresses. “The maxi dress shape is simple and the hottest new trend”
With so many variations from designer drama to chic couture, there’s a maxi dress for just about every occasion.
The maxi dress is usually floor or ankle length (similar to tea length wedding dresses) and can be worn by women of just about every shape and size. Usually closely fitted, there are variations on this for those who need a more forgiving look to cover up a little.
Some of the designers have put their own “spin” on the maxi dresses look and have been very clever in tailoring their styles to flatter the shape of the more mature woman. You’ll also find that for the fuller figure, there’s designs in patterns which tend to help to cover up, flatter your curves and smooth out your figure.
Experiment with necklines – round, scoop neck or vneck are all options, you may already know which flatters you best. One thing to be aware of is modesty, a wedding may not be the best time to be showing off your cleavage too much, so consider wearing a pretty vest-style top underneath for the wedding day itself.
If you’re a petite size, make sure you team the maxi dress with heels to add to your height and to make the most of your figure.
With maxi dresses available in every store this season, finding something suitable is unlikely to be a challenge, as every shop has something to offer. In fact, you may even pick something up at sale time, if you’re able to wait, making sure that you can team it with the appropriate accessories,
such as hat and jacket.
