Cityline Lookbook: Maxi dresses for every body type

Maxi dresses are great for summer. Iva Grbesic helps us find the right one!

Maxi dresses are great for summer as they can take you from day to night. Iva Grbesic shares her tips for finding the right one for your body type and what shoes to wear!

Check our Iva’s tips in the video below.

Mannequin #1: Banana Republic

This dress is flattering for a range of body types, from pear-shaped to athletic to curvy and apple! It’s meant to be flowy and relaxed, and its A-line shows off the shoulders. It even has pockets for keys or cellphones.

Mannequin #2: White House | Black Market

This dress is perfect for pear-shaped or curvy women. The band under the bust shows off slender waists and the deep V lengthens the neck. Meanwhile, the full skirt is the perfect balance to the neckline. The dress also travels well because of the fabric. Just throw it into your suitcase!

Mannequin #3: Loft

When you try on this off-the-shoulder stunner you’ll fully appreciate its fit. For athletic builds, it creates curves and shows off your great shoulders. For curvy women, it defines your waist and highlights the shoulders without relying on the hips or chest.

Finding the right footwear

There are lots of choices for footwear to wear with maxi dresses. You can’t go wrong with sandals or a great pair of wedges. Stay away from closed-toe pumps, which are too formal for a casual summer dress.
