I normally tend to steer clear of wearing maxi dresses. I’m only 5’4, so I often find that they overwhelm my frame and drag on the ground. I also hate that some of them are so clingy you can’t wear reasonable undergarments.
All that being said, I’m obsessed with this Joie Lunaria B Silk Shirtdress ($398). As you can see, it is indeed a maxi but here’s why I don’t hate it. First, it’s not tight so I can wear full underwear and a full-coverage bra and not have to worry about anyone seeing them. Second, the cinched waist gives this maxi the definition I find so many others lacking. Lastly, it’s not striped! Now don’t get me wrong, I love stripes as much as the next person, but shoulder to foot stripes are even a bit much for me. The print on this maxi is gorgeous, without being overly girly.
If it was love at first sight for you too, snatch up this dress now–it’s bound to go fast.
