It’s not in the rule book, but every summer, hemlines usually go up. It’s basically the call of nature; the rising temperature caused by the hot scorching sun simply demands for women to wear shorter pieces.
Unfortunately, some are simply not willing to be swayed by the seasons, especially if it means showing their legs (and thighs). Are you one of these women?
Well, it’s a good thing the maxi came into trend.
Vix London Twisted Long Dress, $185 (Sold Out)
The maxi, particularly one with an empire cut, is such a failsafe summer dress because of its ability to flatter almost any body type.
Now you can afford to look fashionable and feminine during summer without having to show your thighs.
Maxis can be used in many ways – as a beach cover up, as a date dress, as an everyday casual dress, and even as a maternity dress for those who are expecting.
