10 Ways To Rock The Maxi Dress As a Big Woman

The maxi dress (oh angels sing!) is a life-saver for women especially plus size beauties because while it is feminine, versatile and trendy, it also helps the figure by giving you the illusion of height (when worn the right way) and providing coverage like no other. Let's figure out the ways to rock the versatility of the glorified maxi dress.

1. Go for a deep V-neck and empire waist to show off your goods. The V-neck and open neckline elongates the neck and lets you highlight some sexiness (if needed); while the empire waist cinches you at the waistline and drapes down without clinging to your body.

2. With a cool top - turtleneck for a modest elegant look for those who want to cover up; and a funky or plain t-shirt for a young and chic look.

3. Animal prints and high heels for that extra roar!

4. With sneakers of your liking and a cap for a street-style edge (plus it does not hurt your feet - bonus points!).

5. Go all out with bold and bright patterns! Be that thirst-quenching energy that walks into a room - the bold red lipstick is such a great accessory too!

6. Glam-ing it up with a sleek as glass top knot and over-the-top dramatic blings (and those chic manicured talons!) Can we just say... this sister is SO put together!

7. Play with one or two favourite accessories over a basic black dress to make it your personal style - you can really dress this one up for virtually ALL occasions.

8. Go for age-less and care-free Bohemian style - flowers in hair and bare feet optional! But we do love the flowers. For a more city chic look, you can wear floral prints on your dress and tan sandals on your feet ;)

9. For those lazy (or bloated or burnt out) days, just put on your most comfortable maxi dress and throw on a snazzy jacket, and voila - you've got a stylish look, be it for casual or for night out.

10. Blind on-lookers with neon colour - no apologies needed.
