How to Maximize Your Maxi

Summer’s most loved and arguably most comfortable staple—the maxi dress—can be so much more than just a casual grab and go look. From romantic to glam, here are 3 unexpected ways to remix your maxi all summer long.

Be a knockout. Special event? Wear a maxi in a rich gem tone and voila!—you’re the best dressed and most comfortable person in the room. Add bling to your neckline, bold black accessories and sky-high strappy sandals to get that “wow” factor.

Stylist Tip: A layering piece brings more dimension to your look and is perfect for chilly nights. Look for a draped cardigan to add more dramatic length to your night-out look.

Keep maxin’ and relaxin. If you’re staying casual on the weekends, try easy summer layering! We’ve said it before: vests are the perfect layering piece for summer because they don’t weigh you down. Plus, a vest—like this classic cargo style—can complement so many prints and colors.

Stylist Tip: Try tough and feminine together. The structured style of this vest is an unexpected yet perfect accompaniment to juxtapose the softness of a jersey maxi.

Go from daytime to date-night. Complement your neutral maxi (think: black, grey or navy) with statement accessories that follow the maxi’s neckline. It’ll give your look an instant upgrade (a la build-in embellishments) that look so natural with the dress’ cut.

Stylist Tip: Try pairing your dress with jewelry in complementary metals. If your maxi is a cooler color, like light grey, pair it with silver. If it’s a darker neutral, try a high-contrast black and gold.
