June 11, Maxi Dress

I bought this striped maxi dress a few years ago- but I rarely wear it, because I don’t love the way it looks on my curvy body!  But, it’s going to be a hot day today, so I thought I’d see if I could make some small changes to the way it looks.

 I decided to tie a white tank over the dress. This breaks up the stripes while creating the illusion of a skirt and top. Without the tank the dress is unflattering, all those stripes across my tummy area are not doing me any favors. But by tying the tank- I have created a waist, and broken up all the stripes. Adding the long necklace also helps break up the solid tank. By also tying the bottom of the dress, I have a cohesive look that is super relaxed, easy and fun to wear! Enjoy your day!
