Keeping It Chic In Maxi Dresses From New York & Company

Hey curvy girls all over the world,

I remember a few years ago, I would never utter the words maxi dress. I used to despise long dresses or skirts. It was all about knee length or mini skirts for me. It’s something about long lengths that used to make me think I would look dowdy. Fast forward to now I can’t get through a summer without having a maxi dress. I like my maxi dresses to be sexy or have bold colors, or prints. Whenever I find those styles, i feel much more chic in a maxi dress than dowdy.

Halter Maxi Dress

Recently, I found some uber chic and sexy maxi dresses from New York & Company. Back in June, I told you guys that New York & Company has extended their sizes up to a 20 and XXL. That was news to my ears and so, ya’ll know I had to check it out. The extended sizes are only available online for now.

Currently, New York & Company is offering 60% off sale styles

Halter Maxi Dress

While browsing the New York & Company website I came across a bevy of sleek and feminine dresses. I fell madly in love with this stretch halter maxi dress with graphic print trimming and inverted pleats. I was automatically drawn to it because of the color. The fit was perfect. It skimmed right over my curves. To my surprise the maxi was long enough and grazed over my shoes. This dress screamed summer vacation or a walk in the park.

For accessories, I added a bold yellow Oval Stretch Bracelet from NY&CO. To hold my wallet, lotion, and tissues, I carried a straw tote also from New York & Company.

I decided to checkout the Eva Mendes summer 2016 collection and found some really nice dresses, tops, and skirts that all came in sizes 20 or XXL. One dress that caught my eye was the Eden Maxi Dress. The print and the mix of black, orange, and white was striking. I loved the deep V. It’s the kind of maxi dress that you can dress up and wear out at night.

I chose to rock it during the day while taking a stroll through the park. I love going down to the Brooklyn Piers and just roaming around. I went to checkout the view near the Brooklyn Promenade and this dress was so comfy and sexy. I kept getting compliments.

maxi dresses plus sizes

I am so glad that New York & Company started adding extended sizes. I hope they add up to a size 24 and just do a full plus size collection. IN the meantime, they have some really cute summer styles and their prices are affordable. There is always a deal going on. Currently, they’re having their Black Friday in July sale where just about everything is on sale. new york and company maxi dresses 3

    I prefer the colour of the first dress but I love the cut of the second one, you look very sexy in it. I love the videos too and your hair looks gorgeous like that. x x
