Find the Best Maxi Dresses for YOUR Body!

We are smack dab in the middle of maxi dress season and some of you may be thinking, “With so many choices, how do I find the best one for me?” I am here, my lovelies, to give you a heads up on how to pick out the right maxi dress for a flawless look all season long.

For my busty sisters, a V-neck or racer back maxi with ample straps or sleeves is a great the way to go! They show off the "girls" tastefully, and still give you the ability to wear a supportive bra! Try not to rely on strapless maxi dresses too much unless you have an awesome strapless bra; otherwise, your "little women" will sit lower on your chest than you'd like, causing you to lose your waistline.

For my curvy fashionistas, don’t let society tell you that prints, bold colors and fitted maxi dresses aren’t the way to go. Plus size does not have to equal boring! Wear your prints, bright and bold colors, and rock a body conscious, hip huggin' maxi! However, make sure you are putting your best foot forward when doing so.

2. Lysse Plus Size Maxi Dress

When you are going for a figure-flaunting look, be sure to wear the proper under garments. We big gals tend to have a little extra movement when walking, and Spanx shapewear is great at smoothing out and slimming up your silhouette. Try it under a drop-waist, A-line maxi that flatters every curve. Keep in mind that nice flowing maxi dresses are also a great option for most types of figures. Here are a few examples of awesome maxi dresses for the curvaceous!

For my petite ladies, hi-low maxi dresses are great for lengthening your overall look. With the hem cut in the front, you elongate your legs and create the illusion of being taller, even when wearing flats!

2. Karen Kane Hi Lo Contrast Hem Dress

For my athletic ladies, the more feminine the better! Opt for maxi dresses with ruffles, lace, and chiffon to soften the body and create curves.

If you are a little shy about showing your arms, look for an off-the-shoulder look or a simple short sleeve. You are still creating a gorgeous look while staying comfortable!

Lastly, for my skinny misses, you could pretty much get away with anything, so go all out! Don't be afraid to try sleeveless, printed, body-conscious maxi dresses this season!

I hope this helps to keep you looking chic and comfy in the maxi dress of your dreams this season! Happy maxin’!

Zapponian Spotlight: Francesca S. Shares Her Style Tips

Squinting our way through the bright Las Vegas sunshine, coffees in hand, Francesca Simmons sits down with me to discuss her recent style evolution. Francesca came to Zappos as a summer intern from Scripps College in Claremont, California. Almost two year later, Francesca is now a full-time employee, managing her own portfolio for the Clothing Content team. We take a seat near as much shade as we could find on the Zappos rooftop café.

Has your personal style changed much from when you first interned?

 “Oh yes. Lately I’ve been focusing on classic, timeless pieces.”

She emphasizes pieces.

“Updating my wardrobe to express a more ‘adult’ look has been a creative challenge. Now that I’m out of college, I try not to buy impulsively anymore; if I’m missing a key piece in my wardrobe, I take the time to make sure that I’ll use it more than once before making a purchase.”

What are some of your favorite pieces?

She laughs, takes a sip of coffee, then replies, “This is going to sound totally weird, but green bottoms.”

We share a chuckle as she explains, “Green, for me, is a unique neutral that can also add a pop of color to my look. Plus, I can wear green bottoms pretty much all year. Chambray shirts are another favorite. They’re so easy to layer, dress up or dress down.”

Francesca always (genuinely always) shows up to work looking stylish. Even on her “I just do not care today” days, she looks fabulous, so I was dying to know, how she styles her ensembles.

She thought about my question for a second, and then explained, “No matter what I’m wearing, I try and include at least one uniquely textured piece, or a pop of color. Lately I’ve been incorporating sequins in unexpected looks, like daywear.”

Is there a specific source that you use for inspiration?

We’re now getting into the weird, ambiguous world of inspiration, and Francesca smiles at me once again, before blurting out, “Mindy Kaling! I really like how she plays with prints. It’s mind-boggling how she puts her outfits together, truly.”

After returning from our bunny trail of Mindy Kaling Googling, I remember Francesca’s Rebecca Minkoff bag sitting on our table.

 “So where did you find this stunning bag?” I ask.

“That’s actually my tax bag!” she laughs, “If I happen to have a little money to throw around, like a tax refund, I like to invest in something I’ll use a lot, like a quality handbag. I spend very little on trendy items, but I don’t mind splurging for well made, classic pieces that stand the test of time.”

Francesca goes on to explain cost-per-wear, a personal policy that she tries to follow when shopping. “Preferably, the cost-per-wear I’m looking for is about $3. After all is said and done, I would like to see myself wear an item enough times that I average about $3 spent per day. That really paints a clear picture for me when I can’t decide whether or not to commit to a new purchase.”

The mid-day sun is beating down on us by the end of the interview, and as we walk back, across the rooftop café, I feel inspired to go home and pick apart my wardrobe. Maybe we don’t need to sink dollar after dollar into department stores…unique style and a smidge of creative thinking can take your look a long way without opening up your wallet.
