Summertime and tie-dye go hand in hand. It helps set a mood for relaxing and having a good time with friends. This Fashionista is doing just that with her laid-back boho look.
Her blue tie-dye maxi dress from Quiet Storm Surf Shop, which has its online store coming soon, is very beach chic. Until then, here is a similar look from GUESS at Bloomingdale’s. This similar dress has a little more going on and can also be worn as a halter dress. Throwing on a maxi is something anyone can do regardless of look or occasion. You could put it on over a bathing suit then run out the door to the beach, or to a family party in the backyard. It is an easy way to appear more dressed up without wearing any fancy shoes or accessories.
In my opinion, I love wearing a maxi dress without any shoes at all and my hair up in a bun. It is a relaxed feeling with a feminine touch that can only be achieved by wearing a fun maxi dress. The majority of women have loved long dresses ever since they were little girls. They make us feel pretty and feel more mature. Even if they are just beach cover-ups, the maxi dress has a magical power of an instant confidence builder.
I love that this Fashionista was not afraid to mix and match with her funky headband from PacSun. It creates continuity with the horizontal patterns and gives just a little bit of color for interest. Continuing to add to her hippie look, she topped her outfit off with a pair of classic Ray-Ban aviators and some fun bracelets collected from various surf shops. Her distressed satchel also creates a functional, comfortable and relaxed look. It would be very simple for this Fashionista to turn her day at the beach look to a night on the town. By substituting her flip flops for a pair of cork wedges she could go from beach to beach bar.
