April 5, 2011-
If one thing that was evident this weekend at Chicago Stylemax, it is that tie dye is sticking around through Fall 2011. Start your collection this spring with a tie dye maxi, if Emily Maynard hasn’t already caused you to take action. You don’t have to be tall and skinny to pull this off, that’s a myth (the style is actually flaw-hiding, and if that thought EVEN crosed your mind, this next idea is for you). Take your piece to a tailor to hem, or even cut it yourself if the bottom is a raw edge and you’re confident – A great tip from Kate Nardo, co-owner of top showroom Outfit Chicago. You can also throw on some great platforms to add a few inches onto your physique.
Here’s how you can do it for under $100:
* Great buy. The colors are beautiful (it’s less pink in person, navy, with hints of nude) and the fabric is lightweight and breathable making it wearable through Spring and Summer. Beware, the style is a bit sheer (it’s double layered at the top) so nude undies are necessary.
Try “The Lacie” by Victoria’s Secret in nude for no lines. They are one size fits all and an insanely good seamless underwear. SALE 3 For $30 (1 for $11.50).
Tinley Road Capri Wedge/Espadrille $55.00 Piperlime.com ($44 with Discount). The color picks up the hints of nude outlining the Navy in the dress.
Gomax Berdine 31 Gold/Medium $35.00 Piperlime.com ($28 with discount)
TALL GIRL TOTAL: $75.80
“INCH ADDER TOTAL: $91.80!
