Today I’m wearing the same black maxi dress, but showing five different ways you can style it. At the end of this post, let me know in the comments which one is your favorite.
Look #1: The Basic Black Maxi
Let’s start off super basic. You can of course wear a black maxi just by itself! Spruce it up by accessorizing. I like an oversized straw bag for the summer paired with nude sandals and oversized sunnies. This is a low maintenance look you can throw on within minutes and go out the door.
Look #2: Denim Jacket & Sneakers
You can go one of two ways with a black maxi dress, and that’s going casual or dressy. Throwing on a pair of sneakers is a surefire way to achieve the casual look. I love my golden goose sneakers; they are my go-to. Although it is a higher ticket item, it’s 100% worth the investment in my opinion. I wear them more often than not! A denim jacket is also a spring/summer essential. Just like denim jeans, it can be a pain to find the right one with just the right fit. I rounded up a couple of my faves and show other ways you can wear a denim jacket on this post.
Look #3: Button-Down Top & Platform Sandals
You can go out and buy a button down top or you can get a little creative and go into your closet to style one you already have and tie it up yourself. Wear it over your black maxi dress and you’ve got your third look. I incorporated an animal print shoe to give this look a little *oomph*. I love the platform wedge style for summer!
Look #4: The Camo Jacket
Love, love, love camo print! This is also a really easy, casual look. Just throw on the jacket, slip on the sandals and you’re ready to go! You can easily run errands in this outfit, go by the grocery store or make a Chick-Fil-A stop ???? HAHA!
Look #5: The Belted Cardigan
I caved and bought the infamous Gucci belt not too long ago, and again, worth every penny! I wear it all the time with jeans and shorts, but this is also another way I incorporate this belt in my outfits to get the most wear out of it. This cardigan look is great for days where it’s chilly in the mornings and warm in the afternoons.
My favorite looks are number one and number three! I would love to know which look was your favorite and if you had any other ideas on how to style a basic black maxi. Comment below!
