Colors range from the most popular black and white to red and more. A sexy long red dress is the pinnacle of head turning dresses as is white the pinnacle of racy innocence (and can be worn during daytime in the summer). Read below for styling tips...
How to Wear
Extremely versatile our customers wear these dresses to evening weddings, cocktail parties and the prom. Whatever reason you find yourself looking for a sexy long dress remember that shoes are only somewhat important but hairstyles, jewelry, and a suitable clutch are a must. Unless otherwise stated these dresses are made from bandage material, a combination of rayon, nylon and spandex that has strength and stretch and as a result will form fit your body, moulding it into shape. For care we recommend spot cleaning first and dry cleaning only when required.
We asked Claudia to put on our White Sexy Cut Out Maxi Bandage Dress so we can run through a few style examples. White is one of those colors that gives us a fresh and crisp perspective, and a look that is transparent, versatile, and easy to wear. We picked this stunning cut out design because it covers all the traditionally acceptable parts of your body (boobs and legs) but displays the same amount of skin and teases just as easily.
To get Claudia’s exact look make a center part down the middle of your hair and secure your tresses with a hair tie at the nape of your neck. There are several other versions of ponytails that work well for this dress. The key thing to remember about this hairstyle is that the dress features cut out designs around your abdomen so you need to keep those areas exposed. If your hair is waist length we recommend that you pull it up. Some more inspiration...
This dress features straps and seams that are silver with glitter accents so it’s okay to get fresh and bold with your makeup. Though the overall look offers an elegant style its design naturally balances heavy eyeliner, bold lipstick, or demanding contours. To ensure your outfit is in sync play around with your makeup and have a bit of fun. Whether you want go for a more natural makeup approach or something dramatic and bold - your makeup for this dress is limitless.
Shoes are a bit more involved when it comes to longer dresses. The fact of the matter is that your dress covers your feet and so they are not likely to be seen unless you are walking or sitting. Nevertheless, they do require a bit more thought than you may think. Here are a few reasons why you should never forsake your shoes, particularly with longer dress styles:
Confidence and mood - In longer dresses it is easy to go for a something simple and none impressive like ballet flats. Yet you should banish the thought of simple and opt for a sexy pair of heels to give you a diva complex and solid confidence. (Think we’re crazy? Try it! Strut around your room in a pair of flats or tennis shoes for two minutes. Pay attention to your mood and confidence. Take them off and put on your highest and easiest pair of heels to walk in. Wear your heels for two minutes. What mood are you in? Suddenly you are on a catwalk and calling upon your inner diva.)
Height and posture - High heels play a key role in your height and posture. Height is a big deal with longer dresses even if it is just an illusion. Heels lift you off of the ground, demand your body to portray feminine lines, and improve your posture over time. Hunching over is difficult to do in a pair of high heels.
For this white maxi dress put on silver strappy shoes if you plan to do a minimal amount of walking. Opt for wider straps if you anticipate walking a bit longer. Closed toes are always an option. Straps around the ankle of your closed toe shoes provide a timeless elegance.
Undergarments for this dress are pretty straightforward. The high neckline and floor length skirt enable you to keep things pretty simple. For your bra or bust support try to keep it all seamless. Traditional bras may give you a few lines, however, there are several traditional bra styles made today with seamless fabric. Read our article for more complex dress types.
Celebrities in Maxi
Kim Kardashian is often spotted in something white. In this look she choses a high neck white maxi bandage dress, a part down the middle of her free flowing tresses, and nude or beige strappy heels. The look is sultry, tempting, and full of drama! Kim decides to leave her arms bare which contributes to a fluid style that is sexy, hot, and breathtakingly elegant.
Jennifer Lopez sports this look in a similar fashion. She opts for a halter style neckline that covers up her front, but leaves her back exposed (the back design is super revealing and dips to her waist). The longer bandage style hugs her curves which adds to the sultry and sexy look. Jennifer opts for a sweeping updo with split bangs, straight minimalist earrings, and bare arms.
