Another great idea for the early Fall season is layering. One of my favorite outfits you can create with a maxi dress is by adding a cardigan. I don’t recommend adding a waist-line or cropped cardigan, it will make your body unproportioned. I also recommend staying away from oversized cardigans, as the wideness of it will make you wide. I do recommend to choose a wrap cardigan with a maxi dress, or you can also go for a long design.

If you want to wear a maxi dress to a wedding, then the most important thing is to follow, never go for white color dress. There is only one bride, either you or your friend or whoever is marrying, got it? Then everything depends on the wedding’s dress code, it can be casual style wedding, so you are free to choose whatever color you like, either a dressy wedding with a special dress code which should be followed by you. If you are free to choose color of the dress, then I recommend to try on a printed version, it can be either floral, geometric print either animal print design, but don’t go for a vibrant print, otherwise all eyes gonna be on you, not on a bride.
