I love, love, lovelove love maxi dresses, even as a petite plus woman. But it’s hard to stay with them as the temperature drops because there’s little selection where the fabrics and colours are appropriate for the changing season. That’s why I was enchanted with this style, which was selected by SWAK Designs especially for me. You see, SWAK (Sealed With A Kiss) understands the plus size woman, and is dedicated to celebrating not only her curves, but her vitality as well. This is proven in the range of plus size clothing they create and the exciting variety of plus size dresses they dream up for us. Just look at the diversity in the image below taken from their Fall look-book.
I was so pleased when I received the Caitlyn Maxi Wrap Dress because of its vivid harvest colours and wrap style. Wrap dresses work well because they allow for a custom fit; wrapping as tight or as loose as you want, and the overlay created by the wrap provides a good layer over the tummy to fashion a smooth look.
The rich colors and diagonal print are just so visually interesting and draw the eyes up.
Even from the side, where my belly is more visible, this style works well.
I styled it with a simple but striking chocker necklace, and this crazy beautiful clutch by Aldo Accessories. I didn’t need much else because this dress does all the talking.
It’s really such a lovely dress, and so easy to wear.
So say hello to Fall without saying goodbye to maxi dresses.
See it here on Pamela, a size 3X guest at SWAK Designs.
It also comes in this gorgeous abstract print.
And although I wore a wedge sandal with this look, it would have been lovely with a little bootie or ballerina shoe, as shown below by Additon Elle. Eloquii has also introduced some lovely wide width footwear options.
I hope you enjoyed this look and please comment below – I love hearing from you!
