With the summer finally here, who isn’t looking for cute and easy dresses to wear?! I know I always am. Everybody has a style of dress that they know looks good on their shape( and if you don’t reach out I’ll help you)! In this post, I really wanted to focus on the maxi dress and the midi dress because they are great for EVERYONE! I know, you petite gals are shaking your head no, but hopefully you can find a midi or maxi from this post that works for you. Plus all these dresses are under $100 (with one exception at $118)
The Maxi Dress
A maxi dress is a dress that usually falls to the ankle or right above the ankle. I just love maxi’s so much because they are so easy and you can wear them to work, the beach, or for a night out. I’ve gathered some of my favs for this season! For my shorter ladies, a slit will definitely make your legs elongated, so, a dress similar to the dress on the left might be best. Let me know what you get🛍.
There’s also lots of two piece maxi/midi sets out there, but to be honest, it’s hard to find a good one! Most that I’ve encountered are cheap looking/feeling or show just way too much for this momma. The one I’m wearing on the left, I like because it only has a peekaboo showing and I’m feeling that the top is a loose fit. The skirt had more material than I was expecting, but I actually really liked it on. The set on the right I was given as a recommendation from someone that purchased it. They said the same thing, that they liked the peekaboo and could expose more skin if they wanted.
A midi dress goes below the knee, but isn’t quite as long as a maxi dress. Usually, the hem ends halfway between the knee and ankle! For shorter ladies, you want to find a length that hits just above or just below the widest part of your calf to make your legs seem longer. You CAN wear this length!!!
I’m adding this one in because a lot of these are also midi/maxi length. For those of you that don’t know what a nap dress is, it got it’s name for being comfortable enough to nap in. They are usually fitted in the bust area. The dress usually will have a smocked bust and/or exaggerated sleeves. Here are a few I thought were cute.
As always, let me know if you buy any of these!! Hope you enjoy✌🏻
