You can tell Jessica Simpson is from Texas, because she definitely prescribes to the “bigger is better” mentality – even when it comes to her summer dresses. Simpson looked like a big ole fool, in our opinion, in these oversize, tent-like patterned maxi dresses.
What she did wrong:
Patterns are great and so are maxi dresses, but avoid combining the two. Either opt for a patterned cocktail style, or a solid colored maxi.
These massive dresses do nothing to show off her toned legs and large bust. She looks more like a sack of potatoes, than the sexy Daisy Duke-wearer we once knew.
What she should have done:
Instead of Look 1:
Since Jess clearly loves patterns and this bold, bright orange color, she should try a shorter, less-baggy style like this adorable, fitted Billabong Darling dress ($39.50).
If Jessica was a heartset on a maxi style, she should have gone with this bright, flattering ASOS Jersey Grecian Maxi Beach dress ($50.54) in a solid color.
Instead of Look 2:
Maxi dresses are great because they hide all sins. You don’t need to look like you’re swimming in fabric, though; try this Daftbird Racerback Tank dress ($124). It is super comfy yet still body con and somehow slimming.
Since we know Jessica loves her prints – including the green tiger concoction above – we found her this amazing Diane von Furstenberg Crinkle printed dress ($325). You just can’t go wrong with a ladylike DVF dress.
