The Perfect Little Black (Maxi) Dress!

How to style a Maxi dress with sandals, earrings, and a clutch.I love the ease of great maxi dress, especially in the summer!  I also love a great LBD.  You guys…this dress is both and it just might be the best maxi dress I’ve ever owned!  It’s the perfect piece to wear now and into fall.  It’s truly a blank canvas to dress up or down and the comfort level can’t be beat!  

The cut and fit of this dress is impeccable and the fabric is incredibly soft.  It hugs in the right places and the cutouts are subtle, making it super flattering!  A regular bra or racer back bra can be worn with it with no fear of straps peeking out.  (This style is a current favorite, so comfortable!)  I did have to take the dress to my tailor for hemming, but that’s nothing new at 5’2″!  Would probably be perfect length on anyone a little taller than me…    

My favorite way to wear a maxi dress is with sandals and standout earrings!  Lace up flat sandals are my go-to’s and come in several colors.  They’re easy on the feet and great for travel, too!  (See them styled with shorts in this recent post.)  I’ve been on a major earring kick lately, and these are among my favorite finds!  They’re under $35 and super lightweight.  You’ll forget you’re wearing them!  (I’ve linked a few more of my favorite tassel and fan earrings below.)  

I hate when this happens, but this dress has been so popular that the size selection is limited!  It’s on sale though, so if you see your size, snag it.  I’m hoping it will be restocked!  Another way to find the size you need if it isn’t online is to do a search by store to see if a retail location near you has it in stock.  At the end of this post, I’ve also linked other great maxi dresses, also on sale
