How to Style Maxi Dress 3 Ways

Last year I bought this beautiful dress and wore it only a couple of times, so this year I vowed to pull her out a bit more and get my use out of it. It’s such a stunning piece and I think maxi dresses are so versatile and can be worn in every season. Even for us petite ladies, maxi dresses are definitely my go-to look, especially in the summer.

This post is very special because my girl Bristol Nicole and I are sharing our favorite ways to style maxi pieces. Bristol’s style is so fun and colorful and I’m sure you will love her posts. So after this make sure you head over to her blog for more inspiration and follow her on Instagram!

The first look is a bit more casual. Living in the city I walk everywhere, also considering I don’t have a car… so sneakers are often my go-to footwear and my Keds are a particular favorite. You’ve heard me talk about how simple they are time and time again so it comes to no surprise I also incorporate them into my maxi looks. Throw on a vintage crochet purse and a denim jacket to create the perfect casual day look for walking around town or even outdoor drinks while we enjoy the final days of summer.

Look two, is a little more edgy, as you know I love to pair my very feminine pieces with edgier accessories to mix my styles and this dress is the perfect piece to do that with. Pairing the blue polka dots with a leather jacket, leather booties, and my favorite felt hat is absolutely perfect for fall. I love this look again for a day out or maybe even an evening dinner with the girls or a date with my guy.

My final look is to bring the dress into the colder months of the year, of course, that drop neckline doesn’t make it very comfortable when the weather also starts to drop so I decided to pair the dress with a cropped sweater to cover up and make it a little less revealing. I love this caramel color with the blue of the dress, it’s a great way to bring this dress into fall and even get away with it into the beginning of winter.

What is your favorite look? And don’t forget to check out Bristol’s looks, let her know you came from here!

    Super cute! I think you’ve convinced me I need Keds. Do you wear them with or without socks? Thanks! Ginny A

      Hi Ginny! Yes, you do! I wear mine all the time! I have been thinking about getting them in other colors too, not only are they cute but so comfortable too! I wear mine either sockless or with the little no show socks.
