For all the ladies out there who just took one look at this dress and thought, “Hell no, I ain’t wearin’ no goddamn tent!” I say, “Calm down. It ain’t a tent, but a blush-toned, polyester “trapeze maxi” dress. What, you ain’t heard of a “trapeze maxi” before?
To clarify, it isn’t the latest from sanitary napkin-makers. A trapeze maxi is, okay, by most accounts a “tent”, but hey, it’s flowy and pretty, and it can be belted if you’re really worried about not having a waistline in a dress that might just make you look like a walking isosceles triangle. This dress features a blush-pink top and a sheer taupe bottom. It comes with not one, but two strings: one to cinch the collar around the neck, and an other that can be belted around the waist. But because I despise the whole “matchy-matchy” dress and belt look, I’d probably remove the provided belt and tie a brown woven leather belt or a thick black cincher around my waist instead.
The key to pulling off wearing a maxi dress if you’re not built like a supermodel is donning a pair of platforms, wedges, or heels on your feet. Something to give you an extra few inches. Besides that, all you need is a few accessories, maybe a bracelet, a pair of knock-out sunnies, and a clutch, and you’re ready to be a summertime goddess.
This trapeze maxi dress is $86 over at Pixie Market.
