It works like magic: when summer arrives, all we want to wear is a maxi dress. After all, not only are they pretty and feminine, but they are easy—all you have to do is slip it over your head! With that said, today we are exploring three different ways to wear your favorite maxi dress: dressed down, dresses up, and in between. So, click through to discover all the must-know details on how to work your maxi dress this summer!
If you have a busy day that is bound to keep you on the go, make sure you take notes from Carey, who created a perfect “in between” look. By pairing her maxi dress with a structured satchel and jeweled sandals, Carey ensured she has an outfit that works for running errands, a casual business meeting, and after-work drinks with the girls. To work this look, grab pieces like Guess’s Bristol Maxi Dress ($53), Rebecca Minkoff’s Diamond Laser Desire Satchel ($525), and Enzo Angiolini’s Trillium Sandals ($40).
Miranda has styled her maxi dress in a dressy way, which is perfect if you have a daytime business event or an after-work function. We particularly like how the wrap silhouette gives Miranda’s dress a subtly sexy vibe. To try this formal look, grab a dress like BCBGMaxAzria’s Hereith Maxi Dress ($548) and pair it with Steven’s Angels T-Strap Pumps ($160) and pulled-back hair. If you don’t want a low neckline, add a cute cami like Free People’s Outskirts Lace Cami in Black ($48).
If you need something a little more casual, we just love Sophia’s low-key look. The detailed print gives this dress a laidback vibe, while the slit at the bottom gives the dress a breezy feel. This is definitely an outfit that can works perfectly for a hair appointment, a manicure, and a spot of shopping! Ready to try? Grab Sophia’s exact dress—Ella Moss’s Stained Glass Maxi Dress ($248)—or try ByCorpus’s Python-Print Maxi Dress ($79). Then, simply add Rachel Zoe’s Gladys Flat Sandals ($235) and you’re set.
