The maxi dress is an invaluable item that every fashionista should own. It can be dressed up or down and is by far the comfiest piece of clothing I own. What I love most is that the maxi dress can easily be transitioned through the seasons: wear it with a cute sandal in the summer, a leather vest in the fall, over-the-knee boots in the winter, and a trench coat in the spring.
I get that a maxi dress can be intimidating for some people. You don’t want look like you’re wearing a ball gown to the grocery store- I get it. The trick is to find a dress that hits just above your ankles and has a relaxed fit. It’ll look like something you threw on last minute and just happen to look fabulous in! It’s also important not to over-do the accessories: earrings and a simple pair of sunnies will do.
I bought this dress from Zara in Edinburgh after falling in love with the red stripes. I feel like I’m wearing an extra-long shirt-dress and it looks super casual. I paired this dress with my favourite Gucci loafers and my mini M.A.B.
