I love gowns. They transition from day to night with the right accessories. They add height, and are extremely slimming. This is a rust georgette gown with slit sleeves worn with flats and a cherry Gucci bag. Worn to a Fashion Week, I kept simple as it was an all-day event. I love the colour, and the high-waisted cut accentuates the upper waist. A single colour adds height too. You can dress up a maxi gown like this with a chunky neckpiece or earrings, or a bangle for the night.
