STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Maxi-mize Your Style

With the hot summer sun beating down, it’s not easy to cover those legs with pants, jeans and trousers. Thankfully, the maxi dress allows Fashionistas everywhere to stay cool and comfortable, even out in the sizzling sun. The maxi dress has become a must-have staple this season, as this Fashionista shows us that it can be the perfect summer mix-and-match basic.

This Fashionista has uniquely styled her maxi dress under a cool, flowy shirt, giving the illusion of a full-length skirt. Who needs to buy skirts when we can just restyle our beloved maxis? Taking one item of clothing and maximizing it into many more creations is a great way to save time and money! Just throw a cool summer knit or cropped top over your maxi and you have created an easy, quick and stylish masterpiece! I suggest finding a neutral maxi, like this Calvin Klein one from Zappos, that can be mixed and match with plenty of cropped tops and sweaters. With a neutral maxi dress, you can add color through your jewelry, shirts, shoes, makeup and more and then change it up every time!

To spice it up a bit, you could even step out of the box and buy a printed maxi like this one from Anthropologie. Prints are hot this summer, so simply tossing on a white or neutral sweater will allow you to fashion this flawless, trendy combo. This crochet sweater by ASOS would look great over a fun summer maxi dress. Even a simple white T-shirt like this one from Zara would be Fashionista-worthy. You can also buy maxis already pre-made in this look, like this one from Shopbop.

Make this look your own and your closet will be officially maxi-mized. Enjoy the summer months and stay cool in style!
