A classic Maxi dress, every woman needs one a flattering fit, a easy color to coordinate with other pieces, and quality fabric that is going to last. For my second monthly review for Kiyonna, I wanted to feature a type of dress that is universally flattering to all shapes. The Maxi dress is a shape that became iconic in the 1960’s the maxi dress changes slightly from designer to designer, and today can be found in virtually every women’s clothing store. BUT. Not all maxi dresses are created equal, and for me I go with quality over quantity EVERY TIME(unless its diamonds, I always want lots of diamonds lol).
Now, I know what you are thinking, “Anne, you talk about Maxi dresses every damn summer, WE KNOW YOU LIKE THEM!” What I want to highlight about this specific maxi, is the pleating under the bust. This small detail set this Kiyonna Maxi into a whole different level for me, this detail adds interest while at the same time masking any tummy troubles. AND THAT is what I am learning about Kiyonna, the little details that are specifically for the plus size babe is what this brand specializes in. Some pleating on the tummy here, and some rushing on the sleeve there. Each little detail adds up to a piece of clothing that is tailored to the plus size woman.
When we photographed this look, I loved that my dress was as green as the trees and nature surrounding me. I felt like a green goddess, this color is one of my favorites right now. I reach for something green to wear almost everyday, lol. I have 3 olive green jackets, a green camo jacket and vest, an olive swing dress, some green espadrilles and now this Olive Maxi. 🙂 Green is my color, and luckily this season its everywhere.
I wanted to style this dress with some neutral accessories that were on trend, and would lend this classic look a subtle trendy feel. Some nude mules, and my favorite leopard clutch were easy choices. I plan on styling this dress with some flat sandals and a cross body for an easy daytime look.
