I got this comment from my previous post of ashley olsen in a long skirt:
"dreary" is an attitude - you can wear the same outfit - you just need to love it!
(you can refer to my previous post, "one size fits all" on july 30th '11)
maxi lengths can really elongate you,
but even more so if you help by wearing heels. ;)
*this applies to all sizes~~
prints are also great because it's automatically anti-dreary
let's take a look at khloe kardashian who is always rocking maxi lengths:
stripes are the definition of illusion.
her stripes are angled on the sides and gives shape to the column.
belts polish up baggy looks, giving girls a waist.
with fall around the corner, you can keep summer's maxis
by layering jackets and sweaters.
going back to ashley's look, I'd wear the solid baggy look with a statement necklace.
a little bit of sparkle with kill any dreariness as well!
