Can you get MAXI-mum use out of this dress trend?

Being a naturally vertically challenged woman (I buy my height) I usually stay away from longer hemlines that may be stature cropping.

The Maxi dress trend does have it’s lengthening advantages if worn  correctly! Worn the RIGHT way you will look like an absolute GODDESS…

If you’re short like me you may want to try wedges or a higher heel to elongate your frame when trying this trend.

If you’re a taller women or an average height woman with a long torso maxi dresses are really a great addition to your wardrobe. Taller women can wear this trend with gladiators and flat sandals fearlessly.

Make sure the hemline is NOT in between your calf and ankle, that is not a MAXI dress. Flowing past your ankle is where the maxi hemline should be…You don’t want to look like some cloth was forgotten off your dress.

Here are a few flattering dresses that give MAXI-mum style satisfaction:
