How to wear a long strapless dress

Several years ago when long skirts were a must in everybody’s wardrobe I went shopping with my girlfriends and the result was “I’m not old so I would look ridiculous wearing a long dress/skirt.”After first two months in California my legs were tan but not in a good uniform way… I had lines from the different sandals and shoes, different color tan from medium and mini skirts. California sun is powerful and it does not care about my SPF cream. Next months were a struggle to get a uniform leg tan and finding the perfect outfits to win my battle with my beloved sun. Long jeans, leggings and Jumpsuits are not always the best choice for 30C (80F).

I remember how comfy and stylish I felt last year in my first long dress (see here) so I went shopping for more. I prefer shopping with Simona – she has a way to make me step out of my comfort zone. I’ve tried a long dress with flowers, I’ve tried a bright color maxi dress, I’ve tried a silk dress… I’ve tried a lot but I’ve bought only 5. One of them I’ve already shown you here and today I’ll introduce my black long strapless dress.

TIPS in how to wear a long strapless dress

  • for a casual and relaxed look choose strappy flat leather sandals or low platforms
  • a pair of wedge-heel platforms helps prevent unwanted ground skimming
  • long strapless dress looks amazing with a little layering – a leather motor jacket, a denim short jacket and so on
  • a draper suit blazer over a girly long dress are perfect for a work day at the office
  • I can not deny the comfort of a maxi dress wore with flip-flops but flip-flops are not an option for me (and should not be one for you either)

I wore this long strapless dress on my road trip on Highway 1 / California 1.

This post has a lot of pictures due to the spectacular scenery of California 1. For some a 9 hours road trip can be undesirable but 9 hours along the Pacific coast are a delight.

    Sunt unele dintre fotografii… breath taking!!! Rochia are frumusetea simplitatii (apropos de Simo) si arata grozav si accesorizata cu acea esarfa, sandalele sunt wow! Parul tau e intr-o forma de zile mari! 🙂

    Chiar sunt de poveste pozele astea, iar tu esti super, super sexy in rochita asta. Ai atitudine pentru ea, parul blond…tot ce iti trebuie…
    Poart-o si cu ceva rosu, eventual o esarfa ca cea din ultimele poze…mi-ar placea sa te vad si asa 😀

    Mii de imbratisari, frumoasa mea prietena!!!
