Maxi Dress in the shade of Rust – Forever 21 Plus
Choker necklace – Lovisa
Metal cuff bangle – Diva
Its getting much warmer here for us folks in Asia and with that, out comes the clothing that I can withstand the climate in!
Maxi dresses are a relatively new addition to my wardrobe staples. At 5’2″, the idea of being swathed in fabric down to my toes did not appeal to me. I thought to myself “How are these ladies keeping cool despite wearing a full length dress?” I dressed for function and comfort most of the time (and I still do) but admittedly, I did get curious when I started fashion blogging a few years back. So many gorgeous plus size ladies in my blogger circle wearing such pretty maxi dresses! So I took the plunge 2 years ago and there has been no looking back.
I seem to be veering away from prints this year and this particular F21+ dress really appealed to me, probably because it seems a little Grecian … or would it be Roman? The colour is not something I have much of in my wardrobe, it is a much deeper hue of orange than I usually wear. I seem to be in Spring/Summer color palette denial! Lesson learnt from trying on a couple of maxi dresses now – it is very hot weather-friendly and may be a tad long for me but it lends an air of chic that I like.
This particular dress is very comfortable, soft (easily wrinkled as a result) and versatile – dress it super casual or go semi-formal like I did here.
Whats your go-to spring/summer dress style this season?
