Tip #13: All about the Balance with Tibi






FullSizeRender 2


Perfect summer dress! It’s off-the-shoulder with micro pleats detail on the top. I also love this deep plum color; it’s a bit unexpected this time of the year when the expectation is… summery pastels. This dress is so comfortable yet elegant enough to wear to any evening functions that may call for something a bit more done-up.  Because of the dress length (below the knee), I decided to pair it with heels for an extra bit of height. Long dresses tend to make me look short – it’s the sad truth. These heels are chunky with platforms so they provide support and comfort. If you are petite to average in height and want to wear mid-length skirts, dresses, or even culottes, I would definitely recommend wearing heels to achieve a more balanced look. You don’t want the outfit to overwhelm your physique and look like it is wearing you.

Good luck!
