This is a segment I’m going to try to keep up with daily. I think it’s important to have variety in any wardrobe, unless you’re one of those college kids that still wears American Eagle…then you go ahead and keep doing what you’re doing because I hate you anyways.
To kick off this segment’s debut, I’m going to start with something perfect for summer, the versatile Maxi Dress. I’m around 5’4 and women have the misconception that you have to be tall and lanky to wear a maxi dress. This. Is. Not. True. Virtually any body type can be flattered by a maxi dress, you’ll just have to be choosey about the style. Not only are they practical for the crazy hot weather we’ve been having, but they are beautiful! It’s hard to find a woman in this weather wearing lots of fabric, mostly because we are hardly wearing any to begin with. Hey, it’s summer that’s what we do! But this is just one more thing you can do to add some variation to what you would normally wear.
Everytime I go out in my maxi, people say (and I quote) “UGH you must be SO HAWT in that DRESS. WHY would you wear THAT”? If you lack some of the intel that mother nature should have given you, like some of my friends and fam, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Designers actually know what they’re doing, most of the time. Except those who mix fringes with stripes…disgust. I digress…they are typically really light to keep you cool and comfy. What I like is you can dress these up to go out or dress them down more casually for a barbeque or something. Brilliance!
If you are rich, then God bless you and hook a sista up. Or go hook yourself up with some maxis from my favorite department store, Von Maur. If you are broke like me, then welcome to hell guys. I know it sucks, but poor people can look good too, damnit. I recommend Kohls and Target always always for a dress under $50. Dry goods also has beautiful maxis, but they’re usually pricier. Tough draw. Why can’t we all have rich parents?
