You know when you’re aimlessly browsing through clothes (and we don’t have to mention “at online stores”, because if you don’t then you must do so instantly!) and you come across something that catches your fancy immediately and you have to click “add to cart”?
The only problem is, the same flowy maxi that looked absolutely stunning on the model kind of makes you look frumpy and shapeless when it actually arrives at your doorstep. Not that you don’t like the dress anymore, but you have no idea how to peep out of that free-flowing dress that comes with a lot of fabric!
We totally love flowy skirts, gowns and asymmetric tops; and we think there couldn’t be better choices of outfit come summer. And we want you to love them too. So sit back and let us tutor you on how to wear flowy clothes without getting lost in them
Don’t Waste It
Just because it is something you don’t normally wear, doesn’t mean you cannot experiment with it. Don’t waste it, waist it! Wearing a waistcoat or a vest over your maxi really tones down the flow of an outfit, and makes you look cooler while at it.
Belt It Out
The simplest way of balancing all that fabric on your gorgeous flowy maxi dress is to cut it into two parts, not literally. By adding a belt and breaking the monotony of a single-fabric outfit. And there are so many ways you can experiment with this. From glamming it up with a shimmery waist belt, a pop of art with a funky printed belt to dramatizing it with an oversized belt or just a little add on with a slim bright belt. Choose your pick and change your look instantly with just one long piece of accessory.
This is a spin-off from the waist belt when you have absolutely none of it in your wardrobe. Simply take a pretty scarf lying around in your room and tie it up in a cute bow at your waist. And if that doesn’t do the trick, use the scarf for what its made – around your neck. Vibrant scarves will really lift up your look. Voila, you’re ready for that lunch-date!
Blazer or Leather
For those chilly evenings, putting on a structured blazer can really do wonders to shaping up your outfit. If you’re in the mood for rocker chic, opt for a leather jacket instead.
Embrace your feminine side with a pretty asymmetric, short or full-length skirt. Flowy skirts look best with your shirt tucked in and a cool belt to go with it. If you’re feeling bold, go for a crop top and show off that midriff!
The key is to take it easy, keep it breezy, and just go with the flow ladies.
