It’s hard on the ego to regard someone in her late teens as a style icon since we literally watch Emma Watson grow up!

But Miss Glitzy really loves the Ossie Clark vintage maxi dress that she wore to the Harry Potter premiere in London.

It’s a beautiful and flattering piece, isn’t it? In fact, the long flare skirt and puff sleeves makes it flattering for all body shapes! Unfortunately, it is unlikely that this Ossie Clark dress will be on sale since it’s a vintage piece and the designer passed away in 1996.

It’sΒ  incredibly hard to find a decent maxi dress with sleeves in the stores though. Most maxi dresses out there are either halter, tube or spaghetti straps. For a maxi dress that looks conservative on top, the prints cannot be too loud or it would appear too overwhelming.

Miss Glitzy scoured the web and here are some maxi dresses that we can look at to emulate Emma Watson’s outfit.

Missoni Style Maxi Dress US$88 – It’s a knit dress with scallop details! Miss Glitzy thinks one could carry off a Grecian Goddess look in this dress.

Alice + Olivia Wrap Maxi Dress Β£224.02 – There are embellished details at the sleeves that adds some variety to the simple but chic dress. The satin tie belt is another plus!

ADAM Deep V Long Dress with Bubble Sleeves US$595 – If you are a print girl, this is the one for you. Casual and fun but Miss Glitzy doesn’t quite like the empire waist. Maybe cinch a plain belt for some elegance points?

A.L.C. Sar Dress US$495 – This maxi dress is tres unique! It’s jersey material so it is ideal for warm weather. The round crew neck top juxtaposed with pleated details adds a rock chick touch to the feminine long dress.

  7. I am SO IN LOVE with the Missoni Maxi dress! I Tried it on last summer and was going to buy it, but for some STUPID reason I didn’t. Anyway, I haven’t been able to forget about it and Arden B no longer has it. Anyone know where I can find it? I am willing to pay beaucoup $$$$$.
