I feel as if I’ve failed you guys as a stylist. Haha, I haven’t had a lot of “style” tips other than those attached to outfit posts. I’m here to remedy that with my Maxi Dress Style Challenge! Basically this means that I’m going to take this ordinary (and adorable) $30 maxi dress from Target and show you every Friday for a month how I would style it differently.
I wanted you to have the basic look to refer back to so you can see what I do differently. I’ll be playing with shape/silhouette, color and length. I know a lot of women have a basic maxi dress in their closet and would love different ways to style it, so here you go! (And you know I love stripes, so of COURSE I picked a striped maxi.)
While I’m at it, let’s discuss the lovely qualities of the maxi dress:
- Stays cool and breathable even in the worst summer heat
- Can be dressed up or down (as I will demonstrate)
- You don’t have to shave your legs that day (can I get an amen?)
- Layers easily with other items in case of cooler weather
And that’s just the beginning! I hope you join me every Friday for the next month to see what looks I’ve come up with. I will always link either the exact options I style or something very similar. I hope it inspires you to pull your own maxi dresses out of your closet and wear them with pride this summer!
See you on Friday!
