Want to beat the impending summer heat without showing too much skin? Try a breezy maxi dress like the one that Keira Knightley was spotted wearing in New York City earlier today.

The Last Night actress complimented her thin frame with a gray graphic maxi dress featuring a cinched waist, cap sleeves and long sheer pleats. The silky material and yellow embroidery detail make this dress look more grown-up and fashionable than last year’s minimalist jersey maxi dresses.

Sure Keira looks good in a maxi but is it a look for everyone?

Yes! Maxi dresses can flatter virtually every body type if you pick the right fabric and shape. A cinched waist and pleats can flatter apple-shaped gals by adding a clear waistline while loose-fitting, solid-colored dresses look better on petite girls.
