I spotted this Fashionista at an outdoor cafe on a perfect sunny day. What made it even more perfect was the fact that I saw multiple girls (myself included) wearing maxi dresses that afternoon! There is something so flattering about floor-length hems that I can't get enough of!

For starters, a maxi dress is so easy to wear. All you have to do is slip it on, and your look instantly becomes glamorous. Maxi dresses also flatter so many different shapes and sizes, so they are a great alternative for those awful tiny spandex tube skirts. This type of skirt doesn't show off every inch of skin and it also gives the appearance of being longer, for those who need the extra height.

Accessorizing a maxi dress is just as easy as wearing it! I love that this Fashionista piled on a stack of chic bangles. The key to accessorizing is proportion. Small jewelry may be lost or look wrong in comparison. For a dress with bold geometry like this, the bangles look just right all stacked up, as well as her large teardrop earrings. Her tight braid looks sophisticated and most importantly, it doesn't overpower the boldness of the dress. For shoes, flats and sandals tend to be the best option. I always make sure my skirt falls just above the ground and covers most of my shoes to avoid breaking the long line.

For maxi dress accessorizing and inspiration, I love the styling of Atlantic-Pacific. Try out this look next time you aren't sure what to wear and need a pick-me-up, I promise you it will make you feel like a movie star!
