Look for Less: The Maxi Dress

T by Alexander Wang

I’ve mentioned previously, long jersey skirts/dresses, are the next must-have item that have quietly snuck onto the runways and now ready for your closet. I got a reminder last week when I was looking at The Magazine on Net-a-Porter and they were talking about "Great Lengths". I have to concur that the slim maxi length is definitely going to be huge this fall. Fortunately this is a relatively easy and affordable look to achieve. Even at the higher end of the spectrum this T by Alexander Wang dress will only cost you $105.

If the T by Alexander Wang maxi however is not in your budget you could always thank Ms Norma Kamail for creating a similar jersey body with a slightly more open neckline that will not break the bank at an even $20.

Super basic, the maxi dress looks great with booties, faux fur gilets, a great belt and of course with this fall’s aviator jackets. It’s the perfect throw-on staple that will have you not only feeling comfortable but also hopefully looking tall and elegant too. The only pitfalls of this look could be possible Visible Panty Line and making sure that awkward lumps and bumps are smoothed out. I would make sure that you pick up the correct size to prevent the dress from clinging too much to the stomach and making sure that appropriate undergarments are worn to achieve a smooth silhouette. I'll be placing my order soon!
