As summer comes to an end, there are certain favorites in every Fashionista and Fashionisto’s closet that must make their final debut. In my opinion, one of these pieces is the maxi dress. The maxi dress is the single best boho piece you can add to your wardrobe. However, it takes accessories to really make your look stand out.

I recently encountered this Fashionista who was sporting the epitome of a boho chic outfit. The centerpiece of this outfit was the perfect black maxi dress. Under this V-neck black maxi dress, this Fashionista wore a grey lace bandeau. A bandeau is the perfect accessory trend! The lace was a great addition to this outfit as it gave the basic black maxi dress a little extra flare.

Her hippie-femme inspired look was finished off with a turqoise stone long necklace and turqoise aztec-inspired woven sandals. I loved that she decided to add a bold color to this black dress. Basic pieces are always a great investment because you can dress them up with fun shoes and accessories the way this Fashionista did.

Sometimes Fashionista’s tend to buy gold or silver jewels thinking that it will go with everything. However, bold accessories can truly make an outfit pop and are pretty cheap investments! I love fun colored costume jewelry because it’s unique and can turn a plain black maxi dress into a hot and trendy bohemian summer outfit! Juicy Couture has very fun jewelry that will add oomph to your outfit. Free People also has a lot of pieces that will add a boho edge to your final summer look. Don’t be afraid of pieces you might consider to be “out there” because those are usually the pieces that draw the most attention.

So, break out that maxi dress to create the perfect canvas for all of your boho-chic accessories!
