I've been working on wearing each item in my closet for the past couple of weeks and staying away from stores until we go on our trip to the Disney World. I have more than enough pieces in my closet, not a crazy amount, but enough that I don't need to be reaching for my credit card for a while. Anyway one of the items that came up in the rotation was this maxi dress. I was fretting about whether I wanted to keep it anymore, it's not super trendy, but I really do find it comfortable and easy to throw on. As I was thinking about what outfits I could create, I ended up coming up with four different ways that I could style it and make it work appropriate.
Style #1- Dress, cardigan and floral scarf
I love pattern mixing, it's an easy way to add flare to any outfit.
Style #2- Dress, bomber jacket (my on trend piece) and a chunky statement necklace
Style #3 Dress, chambray shirt and long necklace
This might be casual for work but it's totally weekend/patio drinks appropriate. I also had a little fun playing with different ways to style the chambray top, mine is a pretty light material so it isn't too bulky.
Style #4- Dress, fun scarf & statement earnings
I think this works for work because it provides lots of cover around the shoulders and neckline; plus as the weather heats up so do some of the buildings I go into.
How do you style your maxi dress? Do you still consider it a trendy enough piece to hold on to?
