I just bought this black maxi dress from Old Navy, and I was wondering if you could give me some tips on how style it. I like that it’s so simple, but I’m hoping to be able to dress it up a bit. Thanks, and I LOVE your blog!!
Maxi dresses are one of my favorite things for summer. Why? Because it’s nice to have a little extra fabric when the restaurants crank up the A/C. Here are a couple of ways to style a simple tank dress.
Date Night. The inspiration for this outfit comes courtesy of Jessica Alba. I love the breezy maxi dress with the large, chunky necklace.
I’d never heard of this Stephanie Kantis line before, but I love the look of her large, airy chains. If you’re looking for a turquoise necklace for under-$75, this Color Karma long necklace is hot. It also comes in your choice of eight colors with different natural stones mixed in.
I went with an oversize clutch. This Milly bag brings a nice lightness to the look. I’m also feeling cork clutches for summertime.
Farmer’s Market. The denim jacket is a highly underrated player in the summer wardrobe. It’s the perfect thing for chilly evenings. This Paige jacket looks great, and don’t miss this Tommy Hilfiger jacket for $69. Plus-size? Lane Bryant has you covered.
I love a tassled scarf with a maxi dress. It just adds to the boho chic. This one from Shoptiques is lovely. I’m also a big fan of Kate Spade leopard-dot scarf.
A simple shopper tote and flat sandal complete the look. I’m also feeling this grey hobo bag from Matt & Nat.
