The maxi dress – a very common casual Spring piece. It’s popular tho, in good reason! It’s comfortable, easy and can be styled endless ways. I recently grabbed this $24 Spring staple on Amazon – it’s versatile, affordable and will soon take a prominent spot in my Spring capsule.
For today’s post I am sharing multiple ways to style this affordable dress! Let’s get to it!
Since this piece is one you can wear alone, why not start out the style just as so? Tie a knot in front, on the side, or leave as is. Play around with the piece by itself to showcase your creativity and personal style. As for shoes – the options are endless. Here I grabbed some fun black espadrille sandals.
Accessorize it! Add a belt, hat, and fun crossbody bag to your look. Here I added a braided belt for texture and contrast, a fun sun hat, and my newest Spring rattan bag.
Casually dress it up! Put on some espadrille wedges and complete your look with Spring’s best outerwear option – a denim jacket!
A fourth option is to style a button up shirt over the top. You could tie it in the front, as I did here or wear it open as a cardigan. I paired this solid military style button up with my snake skin mules. Depending on style of button up, you could pair it with cute sneakers, a leopard loafer, or woven mule. Since your maxi dress is a solid color, it opens up the ability to mix different prints and textures into your look.
Looking for a more casual style? Top over the dress with a graphic tee! Knot it in the front, side, or back for waist definition and you’re set! I completed the look with perforated slides, tho a casual sneaker would look cute, too!
A trending look would be to vest it! Layer with a twill utility vest and you’ve got a bit of texture and fun! Here I belted the dress for definition and completed the ensemble with espadrille wedges.
Lastly, edge it up a bit! Put on some boots, a fashionable handbag, and a blazer! Even a moto or leather jacket would be cool. I recently purchased this blush colored blazer and thought to give my look a bit of feminine edge. This look would be so cute for a night out with the girls, or a fun concert.
I know I’ll get so much use out of this little number, and hopefully you will too! I’ll add it’s available in 7 different shades and did I mention it’s only $24 with free prime shipping?!
