A maxi dress is one of the most universally flattering shapes you can wear. I swear by my maxi dresses all summer long, both solid and printed. The long silhouette is instantly slimming and lengthening. Plus, it just adds an air of elegance to any occasion.
I love the knit solid maxi dress because it’s easy to dress up or down. Below, I’ve put together a super casual, somewhat beachy look on the left, then a much more dressed up evening look on the right, both using the navy knit dress as a foundation. The beachy look has easy makeup using just a shimmery all in one stick for a little bit of highlighting and bronzing, a neutral, flat sandal, a summery printed tote, and a floppy hat for keeping the sun off your face as you run around town (try a braid to keep hat hair at bay!). For a night out, pops of turquoise in the earrings and clutch complement the shimmery nudes of the lip glaze and metallic eye shadow. The heeled sandals are understated yet sexy, and you’ll find yourself reaching for them again and again.
