How to rock your style - pairing a maxi dress for a bohemian look

Updated on November 12, 2011

A maxi dress is a long dress that hit just below the ankle. This dress can be wore by itself in the summer days or with a little cardigan in colder weather. It is a very chic dress that most women have in their closets. If wore right, it can make you look very chic. If wore wrong, it can make you look funny. This hub is all about how to properly rock a maxi dress.

Don't wear a solid color maxi dress because it's too boring. Rock a maxi dress with flowery prints of bohemian patterns to up your style factor. If you are a small woman, you should wear a maxi dress with small flowers or patterns. If you are at least 5'7'' or taller, you can rock a maxi dress with larger flowers or patterns.

It is harder for a short woman (below 5'5'') to properly rock a maxi dress because it can easily overwhelm you body. However, a maxi dress can elongate your body if you wear the right ones. For example, you can bring your waist up to just below the breasts with a belt. If you have a blue maxi dress, you can pair it with a natural leather colored belt to elongate your frame. Empire waist dress is always very flattering for short women. For small women, it is important to remember to not ever wear a maxi dress with any kind of horizontal strips. It will make you look bigger sideways and even shorter than you actually are.

Bohemian sandals are your best choice when pairing with a maxi dress. Flip flops are also a good choice when wearing a maxi dress. Whatever footwear you choose depends on your personal taste. I think flip flops are more for a very causal occasion. Bohemian sandals are nicer which you can choose to wear when going on a romantic date with the special someone. My personal opinion is to not pair a maxi dress with heels because I think it looks awkward (high heel sandals or platforms are okay).

You can also use accessories to up your style factor. For hot summer days, find a straw handbag to create a fun summer look. A straw hat with a little bow can be very cute with a maxi dress. A little necklace is very appropriate for a maxi dress with a deep v neck. It can occupy the empty space between your neck and the dress. If you like fashion jewelry, it is important to keep it to a few pieces. A lot of jewelry can easily overwhelm you especially if you are a small girl.

      Nice hub! I must admit that I was never much of a fan of maxi dresses, but seeing them put together like this and hearing your tips may have made me change my mind!
