Fashion Friday: Maxi Dress 4 Ways


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?

    1. Cheers to the 27C+ temperatures in our city!!!! You know what, I wasn't really on with the chambray top myself but I purchased it during one of the challenges and have grown to like it and use it over the years. It's not my go-to but I've gotten enough use out of it.

    1. When I pulled out my spring/summer stuff and came across this dress I was really unsure if I should keep/donate, but I am so glad I decided to keep it. I guess I just needed to thing about how I could utilize it a bit more for work.

    1. Thanks Lana. I made an effort to wear each item in my spring/summer wardrobe to see if I wanted to keep/donate. Prior to doing this post, I wasn't sure about the dress but I have already worn a few times to work.

  5. Love all the ways you styled this striped maxi dress. A striped dress is so versatile and a must for a woman's closet. I am wearing one in my post, today. Love yours with the patterned purple scarf and with the floral bomber.

    Welcome by tomorrow and linkup with me Bojana. Thanks, Ada. =)
