STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Maxi-mize Your Summer Wardrobe

Style Advice of the Week

Summer is a time for going on adventures and trying new things. It’s all about being spontaneous and carefree, and one’s summer wardrobe should reflect this. When shopping for new clothes this summer, look for pieces that are comfortable, easy and playful. When I think of this description, a maxi dress immediately comes to mind.

Maxi dresses are definite must-have summer staples this year. As this Fashionista shows, they are easy to dress up or down. She is ready for a dinner date with her Jack Rogers cork sandals, Michael Kors brown cross-body bag and gold jewelry. However, she could easily wear her dress to the beach or shopping around town with some flip flops and a fedora.

I’m a big fan of printed maxis because if you’re only going to wear one piece of clothing, you might as well make it stand out! I especially love the colors in this smocked tube maxi from Nordstrom. I also love the colors and the beading on this Jessica Simpson one. It even follows the open back trend that I talked about in my post last week. For something that’s a little more elegant, check out the Lilly Pulitzer summer maxis. This strappy silk one is absolutely gorgeous and would be perfect for a wedding or any other nice event.
