How to style a maxi dress 3 ways

June 03, 2015

Getting the most wear out a maxi dress can sometimes be difficult.  Today I am sharing with you how with a quick change up of a few things you can maximize your maxi!

Let me just start by saying this is a strapless dress too.  First up is the casual... running errands, day look.  So maybe you have a list of things to do and comfort is on the top of the list.  I rolled up the ends and sleeves to my chambray shirt, added my GiGi NY Madison cross body, and slipped into my converse.  Casual, comfy, and hands free! 

For the second look, Let's imagine I have a tan for starters.... Ok but seriously, this is a casual look for an afternoon with your girlfriends, or a day date with your guy! 

For the last look, I dressed this look up by adding a leopard cardigan, a statement necklace, and slid on these fun mules. I took off the removable strap from my Blair Ritchey PAK to use it as a clutch.  Presto... chango!
