My advice? Look for maxi dresses with defined empire waist lines and some support in the bust. Fit is very important with a maxi dress- don't buy one that's slightly too small or too large. And this is the kind of dress in which a heel- even a low one- can work wonders. It will change your posture and help you wear the dress better.
Got all that? Take a look now at a few of my favorite maxi dresses this season...
Do you have any maxi dresses in your closet? Do you love them or loathe them?
