The Maxi Dress: 4 Ways

This spring and summer staple can be styled a number of ways. We took a great printed maxi dress and showed you four.


Sabine Santorini Pleated Maxi Dress



With its pretty watercolor print, little pleats, leather straps, and removable belt, this maxi dress might be perfect. And don't let the abstract print fool you—you'll definitely be able to get bang for your buck with this number. Here are four ways you can rock this maxi dress this spring.


1. Casual



The fun print takes center stage in this look. Subtle tan and gold extras like a leopard print belt, strappy ballet flats, and a braided bracelet bring out the orange tones in the dress.


Hive and Honey Braided Rope and Metal Bracelet



This bracelet is a great summer update to your everyday gold bangles. We love the textural combo of the mixed rope and metal.


7 Hills Narrow Haircalf Belt



Swap out the belt that comes with the dress for this thin, leopard print one. Animal print can be worn as a neutral, so you'll find plenty of other occasions to add a pop of leopard to your outfit.


Revlon Orange Flip Lipstick



Play up the little bit of orange in the dress with a swipe of bright lipstick. Revlon's Orange Flip has a tinge of red and goes on slightly sheer, so you don't have to worry about looking like a circus clown in this flattering color.


ASOS Legend Ballet Flats



These strappy flats are a chic cross between a ballet flat and a sandal–perfect for hot summer days when you want a closed toe.


2. Boho



Channel your off-duty model style with a chic bleached denim vest, minimal accessories, and flat woven sandals. 


Proenza Schouler Denim Vest



After what seems like an eternal winter, some of us have a hard time abandoning our layers just like that. A sleeveless denim vest lets you add another piece without the bulkiness and unnecessary warmth of too many layers.


ASOS Decadent Jeweled Brooch



An intricate brooch (or two, or three) adds a big dose of personality to ubiquitous, simple pieces like denim jackets, spring scarves, and solid tote bags.


ASOS Etched Cuff Bracelet



Add a little toughness to your look with a wide, dark grey cuff bracelet. The etched gold design keeps it fashionable.


Ecote Lana Woven Thong Sandal



These black woven sandals will go with everything this spring. The sleek design and short ankle wrap let them stand apart from more basic black sandals.


3. Professional



A polished, professional look doesn't have to be boring. A crisp blazer, bold tote, and candy-color watch liven up this sensible outfit.


ASOS Cropped Soft Blazer



This cropped blazer is the ideal length to go with dresses, skirts, and cute high-waisted shorts. And the light blush color is so fresh for spring.

Kate Spade Cooper Strap Watch



Add some color to your arm candy with this turquoise and gold watch.


Matt & Nat Elba Tote Bag



Out with the tired black bag and in with this blue faux leather tote. It will take you everywhere from the airport to the office to the pool this season.


Banana Republic Garrah Pump



Black pumps are one of those things you're always looking for the perfect version of. Not too tall, not too pointy, and so on. This pair is just right.


4. Edgy



Take your bright maxi dress for an edgy spin with a black leather jacket, studded clutch, and strappy wedges. This look is perfect for taking maxi dresses into the fall.


ASOS Leather-Look Collarless Quilted Biker Jacket



Quilted texture gives this faux leather jacket a high-end appearance. We love that the bracelet-length sleeves let you show off your fabulous jewelry.


Banana Republic Cashmere Scarf



Summery yellow adds a cheery pop of color to any outfit. Loop it a couple of times, or fasten with a cute pin to wear it as an infinity scarf.


River Island Black Geometric Clutch



A good black clutch will go a long way in any wardrobe. This one has sleek geometric and metal detail.


Steve Madden Realdeal Wedges



These strappy black wedges are simple and sexy. The platform-less shape is much more modern, and will keep you from teetering around all night.
