High-Low With Michael Kors
Strutting around in the sun and sand calls from some très chic resort wear.
Dresses with high-low hemlines are a personal favourite when it comes to hitting the beach. I love the high-low trend specially with a high waist and full skirt. Apart from adding an edge to a maxi dress, the silhouette is flattering for most body types and easy to style.
I opted for this Michael Michael Kors strapless maxi dress in a navy & white batik print, with a fitted bodice, high waist and strapless neckline during my stay in Maldives. The light rayon fabric makes it work as a cover-up as I am wearing it over my bathing suit. The dress was also a practical choice as I was easily able to fold it and fit in my beach bag. Not to mention the dramatic effect when the skirt billows in the wind. :-)
I wouldn't just keep this dress for the beach. It work really it is a super cool way to transition into summer. I can also see myself wearing it on a sunny Sunday for a girlie brunch.
I finished the look with these oversized Tom Ford sunglasses, Tod's Gummy Bag and printed Havaianas. I was wearing metallic tattoos from Lulu Dk throughout my trip so ditched the jewellery. As for my hair, it was out of control on the beach, so I let it be, think the messy look went with the bohemian vibe. As I was going to be getting in the water, I wore no make-up, only buckets of sunblock.
