Celebrity stylist and mother Rachel Zoe has some great advice on wearing one of the summer’s hottest fashion trends: The maxi dress! This clothing item is characterized by its long length and breezy fabrics. The best part about the maxi dress is that it can be worn by almost every body type.
In a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Rachel reveals the secrets to rock the maxi dress.
Daytime and nighttime – An ideal daytime maxi dress should have the hem touch the tops of your shoes, while at nighttime, the hem of the dress should graze the floor.
Ideal for smaller bodies – Women with shorter frames or smaller body types should wear long dresses to help them look taller. According to Rachel, long dresses “elongate” the body. Taller women, meanwhile, should consider wear dresses with shorter hems and show off their legs.
