Maximum Summer Style
First, choose the dress. If you want to go bold on accessories, a tank-style maxi in a solid or neutral color is a good base. Black is especially easy to transition from casual to upscale. Printed maxi dresses or maxis with special details, like tiered fabric, make strong style statements. Use the print and design to inspire your theme. For example, the print may call for a boho or beachy look so accessorize accordingly.
Break it up
There are a couple of tricks to define your waist. Add a belt to provide a transition from a fitted top to a flowing skirt. A dramatic alternative to a belt is a sash or scarf . Choose one with a silky touch and a hand-sewn motif for instant glamour. A cropped denim or leather jacket is a fresh way to break up the line as well. Try a blazer for something more polished.
Now’s your opportunity to add color and character. A full-length dress deserves full-length earrings. If you’re rocking a printed maxi, try metallic pieces like gold dangle earrings and bracelets . Summer necklaces like shell-inspired pendants and bright colors, also look great this time of year.
What kind of shoes to wear with maxi dresses?
For summer, sandals and open-toed shoes match the airy, effortless vibe of the maxi dress. Gladiator sandals are casual, and they add a unique element to your outfit. Up the ante with espadrilles or wedges for a more dressed-up look.
