Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress

I think we can all agree that maxi dresses are the real MVP of summer fashion.

Do you want to know why?? Yes? No? Well I'm going to tell you either way :) Let's start with the versatility of a maxi dress. You can easily dress it up or down with sandals, heels, sneakers, etc. and still look put together. Next up, comfortability. There's nothing better than throwing something on that you could wear all day without fussing with it. And lastly, we love that you can easily put on a maxi dress and go without a single thought! 

But we're here to help take your maxi dress look to the next level by styling it with some affordable accessories.  

First up, is of course the focal point of the entire look - our We Belong Together Smocked Maxi DressThe beautiful light blue, dark blue and white colorway caught our eye right away. Next up, the silhouette. It has a smock bodice with a flowy bottom making it easy and comfortable to wear all day long. 


Next up, you can't have a vacation look without sunglasses. These Oversized Sunnies from Amazon are giving us vintage vibes with their oversized squared frames and a dark blue colorway that matches with our dress perfectly.

Next, you can never go wrong with a gold hoop earring and our Gold Rush Huggie Hoops are easy to pair with just about anything. I'm not even exaggerating when I say this but I've worn them everyday since they arrived. They're lightweight, easy to wear and has a neutral beaded accent allowing you to style it with whatever's in your closet.

Straw Totes are my jam for summer! It's another staple you need and will style well with anything. I love this Circle Handle Straw Tote Handbag from Target because it can be worn as an everyday bag or large enough to bring along on a beach trip. It's stunning beaded handle is what sets it apart from any other ordinary straw tote bag. It's already sold out online but I recently snagged one at a Target near me so check your local store.

It's Target for the win with this look! Our next piece to the styling puzzle are these beautiful Straw Blocked Heel with translucent straps. I love that the heel plays off of the Straw Tote and the translucent strap allows for the colors to shine in the dress.

I'm such a visual person and this is how I usually plan out my outfits. I hope you find it helpful too. More to come soon!
