Maxi Dresses

Aaaaah the maxi dress!!! And, yes I acknowledge that most maxi dresses aren’t extremely winter friendly, unless you layer up (leggings underneath, coat and scarf on top). However, I am still a firm believer that when aiming to look effortlessly put together, you can’t put a foot wrong with a maxi dress.

 

So let’s get straight to it. Maxi dresses should make you feel gorgeous. I also find that with maxi dresses, go for something timeless. This should be an item of clothing you keep reusing whenever you are looking for something bold. The style I have invested in is one which flatters my body type. Firstly, I am short, so the stripes create an illusion that I am actually taller than I really am. Secondly, my waist is the smallest part of my body so a long dress cinched at the waist draws attention away from my problem areas.

  

And no, there is no formula to the perfect maxi dress, just like finding the right man, you will find your perfect style and fit, after trying on a few.

Clashing Prints

I love 2015’s clashing prints trend. However I do acknowledge that it’s pretty tricky getting this trend right and pulling it of with confidence. New trends. New risks. I’ve decided that no matter what fashion risks I take, I will always remain comfortable and true to my style. That’s my key to confidence.

 

This is possibly the first time that I’m clashing prints and so I’ve decided to keep it rather simple. I believe that the trick with getting a clashing prints ensemble right is to focus on colours which combine with ease. My go to colours – black and white of course. The clash of the large checks of my dress and tribal pattern of my jacket creates my version of ‘edgy’. Notice that both items of clothing incorporate black and white.

 

Hopefully this helps you get started on your clashing prints journey! Why settle for wearing the same pieces time and time again when you can combine a few and create new and unique looks.
