There are so many reasons to love a maxi dress....let's count the ways....
A long flowing dress is the ultimate statement of feminine sophistication. Its soft, elegant silhouette brings an aura of easy, breezy, beautiful. This BCBG maxi was a treat for the final day of NYFW, and the last days of summer. The pastel colors are fresh and striking, and the flowing hemline was like walking on cloud 9 instead of the bricks and concretes of NYC.
It's the perfect summer attire and though not popularly worn, a great transitional piece for fall. The trick is to treat a maxi dress as a skirt; layer with a blazer, a leather jacket, a comfy knit sweater. I wore it with this linen boyfriend blazer by Comptoir des Cotonneirs. It added an element of effortless chicness, and was airy enough for a cool summer day.
The racerback cut at the back of the dress is sporty and flirty. I personally find a detailed back very alluring and one of the sexiest cuts a woman can wear.
Another great thing about a maxi dress - it elongates the body - so if you want to look a couple inches taller, add a pair of heels and let your inner model shine. These gold gladiator sandals by Guess surely did the trick for me!
I kept the accessories gold, wearing a vintage Chanel bag, Bulova watch, and a clinched belt to define the waistline. The metallic accents picked up the shimmer in the blazer, and was a neutral complement against such a colorful dress.
I couldn't have closed NYFW any better way than wearing this beautiful, elegant dress - I got so many compliments, and sweet gestures as I ran between shows on the streets on NYC. I felt like a real life princess - a maxi will do that to you...try it!
