Styling a Summer Maxi Dress
Wearing a Maxi Dress with a Blazer
Maxi dresses are one of my favorite style of dresses to wear during the summer because I appear so much taller than I really am. With the right maxi dress and the right pair of wedges, I’m golden.
Maxi dresses are a very simple dress to wear, you can just put it on add some sandals or wedges and you’re set.
I’ve worn this gorgeous lace applique dress before. in that post, I mentioned it was the perfect outfit for a day of summer shopping in Barcelona. In that Barcelona look, I paired the dress with a laser cut clutch that became one of my most repinned photos on Pinterest.
Maxi dresses are gorgeous all on its own but when you want to add some layers to this summer look try adding a blazer or jacket. In this outfit, I wore a white lace blazer to match the lace applique of the dress. These two feminine details tie the maxi dress and blazer together perfectly. The blazer also adds some structure to the outfit and its fitted shape helps accentuate my waist.
If you have a very feminine piece in your wardrobe, such as a lace blazer, you can also try pairing it with contrasting pieces. I’ve shared this lace blazer with you before in an outfit that mixed feminine and edgy pieces.
Other than matching a blazer with a maxi dress you can switch it up with a cropped denim jacket. I wore a light wash denim jacket with a tye-dye maxi dress in a previous spring outfit and it was a perfect match.
Depending on the summer look you’re going for, the style of maxi dress will determine the jacket or blazer you reach for. It could be lace, denim, leather or tweed it all depends on the weather and the maxi dress.
I would love to hear from you! Have you paired a maxi dress with a blazer before?
