How to Style a Cute Summer Maxi Dress


What’s up, what’s up, what’s?! Summer is officially here and that means it’s maxi dress time! Whether you’re on the short or tall end of the height spectrum, you don’t have to worry! There’s a maxi dress for everyone and here’s how to style a cute Summer maxi dress.

Tips: How to Style a Cute Summer Maxi Dress

1. Accessorize to Elevate

  • Accessories are key to elevating any look and maxi dresses are no exception!
  • Jewelry such as layered necklaces, a statement ring and bracelets or bangles, are a must.
  • Cinch the waist with a belt for a structured look.
  • Opt for a nice bag such as a bamboo or raffia bag for a cute vacay look or choose other cute bags that will complement your look nicely.
  • Don’t forget about hats! A cute floppy hat or even a fedora can be a great accessory to pair with a maxi dress.

2. Choose your Shoes Wisely

  • Shoes are also an important part of styling a maxi dress.
  • Depending on just how long the maxi dress, you may need a heel so your dress isn’t dragging.
  • Try a wedge heel or espadrilles, which are perfect for Summer.
  • If your dress hits right at the ankle or a little above, you can actually do slides or cute flats.

3. Play with Proportions

  • Don’t be afraid to knot the dress at the bottom to create a more doable length.
  • Wear a fitted crop jacket if you’re going to be in a cooler setting like on a boat cruise.
  • For shorter/petite ladies, you don’t want a maxi dress to overwhelm so do think about silhouettes that may be fitted at the waist or that have an empire waist. This is where a belt comes in handy too because you can cinch.
