Tips from catwalkqueen:
Many of this season's maxi dresses are full of fabric that balloons from under the bust down to the ground. This is great if you're tall and slim and can get away with the volume, but if you're quite curvy, all the added fabric can just make you look bigger than you are. The trick to making the look work? You could just add a wide belt, but I'd go all Kate Moss and add a waistcoat over the top. It smartens up a very boho style and keeps the dress in place. Pick a waistcoat that's cut low at the front (to show you're wearing a dress and not a skirt underneath) in a matching colour. Add wedge sandals for added lift (these dresses are loooong) and you're set!
