Now that we are cooped up at home, we have time to try lots of things we would never have dared. Take voluminous dresses. Before the pandemic, most of us did not exactly have experimenting with the larger-than-life movement on our to-do lists. But since we are trying to stay comfy while staying indoors, it seems like the perfect opportunity to test out the trend.
Think of all those voluminous dresses you’ve seen touted online as another form of nightgowns. They’re roomy yet still look polished enough to impress at your next Zoom meeting or on your upcoming virtual date. And they’re constructed of cozy material like cotton so you won’t mind rocking them all day long.
Once we’re able to go (somewhat) back to normal, voluminous dresses will slot easily into your late spring/early summer wardrobe. You can wear them as intended, in billowy fashion, or wrap them up with stylish belts. Maxi dresses are great on their own combined with flats. The shorter silhouettes will even work come fall since they’re practically begging to team up with straight-leg jeans.
