Dear Maxi Dress lovers,

I consider maxi dresses one of the most versatile pieces in our closet and wardrobe staple dress for Spring and Summer. Whether you decide to wear a maxi dress with pretty floral prints, a black and white stripes or even just a plain monochrome, it’ll make you look comfortable and chic. And guess what? You don’t have to be 5’10 to wear a maxi dress. As a matter of fact, if styled correctly maxi dress can make you look taller! So, no matter the shape, size or height you can still rock this trend.

Some of the celebrities seen in maxi dress include Beyoncé ( in a tribal printed maxi dress and accessorized with nude platform pumps and necklace); Alessandra Ambrosio (known for her boho style, seen in denim jacket and flats); Sandra Bullock ( rocked her maxi in aviator sunglasses and black cardigan); Rachel Zoe ( the maxi dress queen who mostly wears it in black); Jessica Alba (was spotted wearing a maxi dress with boyfriend blazer and a scarf).

One simple dress can be styled with so many different accessories including wide range of jewelry, shoes, scarfs, hats and other add-ons changing your look from cozy weekend style to chic city street style.

Here’s my Style Guide to some other ways to style your maxi dress this season.

  1. Casual and Cozy Weekend Look: Maxi dress can be paired with a light cardigan, lace up flats.
  2. City Chic: Add a bold color clutch or an envelope purse with a strong-statement shades.
  3. Boho Daytime: Top it with a wide brimmed hat, 70’s inspired wedges and arm party bangles.
  4. Dinner Date: Accessorize your look by adding a bit of evening glam. A sparkly necklace with a shimmery belt on high heel stilettos.
  5. Brunch Outfit: Wear a light long-sleeve shirt over it. Roll up the sleeves and tie it at the waist. Finalize the look with short boots for a western look. 
  6. Formal Office Statement: Add a blazer {long sleeve or short sleeve, both OK } to your maxi dress. Accessorize your look with heels and messenger laptop bag.
  7. Boyfriend Cool: Wear a black leather biker jacket with biker boots and add silver jewelry.

Take a look at how I parked this one particular black and white look with a white casual maxi dress. Since I love pearls so much, I added a short strand of multi-color fresh water pearl necklace for a touch of glam and wore it with a pair of black flat sandals. To complete this look I added a black crochet fedora hat for my day-time street style glam and runway-inspired cat eye black sunglasses.
