10 ways to Style Your Maxi Summer Dress






Hi everyone,

Happy weekend, With Summer coming in less than a week, I already went thru my closet and pull out all my cute summer dresses. My favorites are the maxi dresses. I mean seriously, what would summer be without the maxi dress? The flowy, floor-grazing appeal of a maxi dress is undeniable. So is their extreme comfort, wearable fit that looks good on everybody, and versatility. With the right maxi dress in your closet, you've got a go-to piece that you can easily dress up or down, for daytime style, casual weekends, wedding guest attire, beach vacation dressing, and special evenings out.  Here's a list of 10 ways you can style your maxi dresses:

  • Add a belt: Do you love the forgiving silhouette of a flowing maxi dress for summer, but worry that your figure will get lost in all that fabric? The easiest way to create a flattering silhouette in a loose dress is to belt it at the waist. It will instantly accentuate your waist and balance out the whole look.
  • Add a blazer and wear to work : One of my favorite way to wear my maxi dresses. This was my go to outfit for my 1st pregnancy. Cute maxi dress, well tailored blazer (lightweight) and a pair of heels.
  • Add a scarf : Take your outfit to the next level by adding a scarf around your neck or all around your handbag. My favorite scarves are the silk chain (Versace or Chanel inspired) ones.
  • Add colorful accessories: You can amplify the beauty of a long, summer dress in a bold hue or pattern, by adding brightly colored accessories that keep the eye moving around your outfit.
  • Add a moto-jacket : Cozy date night anyone? Layer a biker-style leather or suede jacket over a long, pretty maxi dress anytime you want to add some edgy cool. Wear with ankle boots and a pair of sunglasses, for a streetwise outfit that's wearable and stylish for everything from shopping in the city, to meeting friends for dinner.
  • Add a denim jacket:  A fun layering piece for those chilly afternoon in the mountain. 
  • Add a knot: For that effortless, casual vibe and to avoid getting your dress hem dirty, tie the bottom in an easy knot (right or left) of your jersey maxi dress.
  • Add a summer hat or a headscarf:The headscarf is one of those confident, stand-out fashion accessories that adds style cred to your entire look. Try wearing one with a maxi dress this summer to take even the most casual jersey dress to the next level. 
  • Add patterns: Maxi dresses come in all colors of the rainbow, and about as many patterns as you can imagine, so there's no need to play it safe! A long, maxi dress in an all-over, eye-catching pattern is not only comfortable, it's a fabulous way to turn heads and stand out from the crowd. Polka dots anyone?
  • Add color blocking with separates: A bold, brightly colored cotton maxi dress can look fabulous on its own for summer but adding layers is the key to creating a street style look. So why not get creative? Try wearing a colorful summer maxi dress with a jacket in a different, bright hue, to create a color blocked outfit that feels just right for summer fashion.

  3. I just ordered a maxi dress and love the suggestions, especially the color block idea. Thinking about what to wear with it before i ordered, my mind went to the denim jacket or sweater idea in a like color. It seems that when I have a maxi dress, it is the last thing I go to in my closet and I want to change that and wear it more often. In addition to that, it will be challenging this summer with Covid-19 restrictions to go many places.
    The teal color looks beautiful on you!

  6. I love the combo of the big white hat with this dress, the bag and the roses. I worry that maxis overwhelm my petite frame, but you certainly rocked it here, so maybe I'll be braver!

  9. A great deal of ladies who have wore string two-pieces to water parks, for instance, will have the option to tell a shocking record with respect to helpless inclusion. Thus, surfer young ladies generally put on bra top structures to have the option to manage the intense and requesting outcomes of the surf. two piece pants sets
