A wise woman (my mother) always said to flaunt my assets, but to be careful and pick only one to show off at a time. Maybe this is why I love maxi dresses so much. They allow me to do just that, and this black and white, multi stripe Calvin Klein creation, here, is quickly becoming my favorite Summer dress.
This asymmetrical stripe maxi dress is classically chic and super comfy. The black background and the length elongates the body, while the simple cut and strategically placed thin stripes, give an illusion of instant slimming, hiding all my imperfections. Whenever I wear this fun maxi dress, I can’t stop twirling. The soft material of the quality fabric drapes gracefully and has nice weight, hugging me well in all the right places. I love how I can just throw it on and shimmy out of the house feeling feminine and fabulous.
Floor sweeping striped maxi dresses (and skirts) are essential summer wardrobe items for day and night wear. They can easily crossover from day scene in strappy gladiators, to a night out just by adding a jacket and some sexy wedges. Don’t be afraid to add a belt to your dress, or even a pop of color with a bright accessory, but do be careful to not over-accessorize! Stripes tend to be dramatic, so a little bling goes a looong way.
