While you are on break this summer, give your usual sundresses some time off too. While it’s cute and feminine, it isn’t always the most comfortable and practical. Why not let loose and stay both comfortable and stylish. You can easily transform a maxi dress from casual day wear to chic wedding attire with a few simple steps. It’s the prefect staple piece for your wardrobe this summer.
If you are like me and didn’t achieve that ideal beach body for summer, you can fake it by elongating your body with a maxi dress. Dark colors will give the illusion of a slimmer silhouette as well. A micro-printed maxi dress is understated enough to dress up and wear to more formal evening events. If your dress has a tubular shape, bring in the waist with a bold belt to define your curves. Belts are a great accessory to express your style while helping your figure. Finding any accessory that expresses your personality will set you apart from the crowd while keeping it modest. Modesty is key for summer weddings and the concept can easily be lost if you are not mindful. If you are feeling like you need a little extra coverage for early mornings or late nights, a long loose cardigan will fit your needs.
Tie your look together with a strappy sandal and a great pair of shades before you walk out the door. To take this look from day to evening, switch out your sandals for a pair of heels, and replace your flowy cardigan with a more structured sweater or jacket. Also, adding a pair of dangling earrings and a few metallic bracelets are sure to give you the extra glamour that you are looking for. A small envelope clutch should be all you need to carry the essentials on your night out.
