I think if there were one item aside from jeans that I could live in for the rest of my life, it would be maxi dresses. I was hesitant and a little resistant when they first started to become trendy a couple of years ago, but today you can count me among the fully converted.
Maxi dresses are the easiest way to look feminine and casual at the same time, and putting a look together around one couldn’t be easier. Want to know my secret tip? Just. Add. Denim.
After that, the rest is all about flair. Layer on a few necklaces, strap on some flat sandals or slip into a pair of ankle booties, garnish with a belt if you like and voila. Above, Jennine put together a classic denim jacket and black dress combination with a little pop of red in her sandals. Below, I layered my chambray Madewell shirt over this floral Joie ‘Della’ dress.
Are you a big fan of maxi dresses in the warmer months?
