Does anyone remember when the maxi dress became the ideal and most coveted summer day to glam full outfit item?
Now listen here y’all. Yaya is not a dress/skirt type of gal. Don’t let the collection of said items fool you.
Apple Bottoms $74.99 || Dereon $74.25 || C&C California $117
I know there are plenty of full figured, thick thighed, curvy, voluptuous and whatever else you like to call yourself women out there that are nodding their heads as they hear this: the friction of the summer doesn’t do a single kind thing to my lower half without pants or shorts to protect it. It means I don’t like sticking to meself while walking and will only put myself through such practices, when said practices will be minimal in time.
My summer uniform has and always will be a pair of bermuda shorts and most likely an obnoxiously bright colored top. Until the maxi. Call it what you may, but I think a woman looks like an earth mother goddess in them thaaangs & shoot everytime I put one on, I feel super snazzy. It’s the long gown effect without having a glitz and glamour night out.
Dereon $59.00 || Alice & Olivia $385 || Adam $237.50
What else calls out to me about it?
The long flowy fabric (I find that the maxis out of jersey or jersey-like material are the most comfy) makes me feel like a female version of a hustla…
The item is one single item that completes my whole outfit for the day. I call that time efficient.
I don’t have to worry about if my shorts are showing from underneath or if it rises too much when I bend or sit. Nor do I have to walk around with red press marks from the chairs, benches, subways, and whatever else my legs tend to lean on.
And above all else – every store has options for this rootin tootin type of dress in a variety of shapes: halter, tube top, v-neck, one shoulder, ruffled, boatneck, short sleeve, spaghetti strap – you name it – in different price ranges and color/pattern selections.
