How to Wear a Maxi Dress 3 Ways

I’ve been getting emails about my Staples Series, where I used to show how to wear one piece multiple ways. While I’ve been having fun bringing you new content every week, I missed the series too! So I thought I’d do a video showing three ways to wear my favorite summer staple: the maxi dress. With just a few extra pieces of clothing, some accessories and red lipstick you can easily transition a maxi from a casual weekend to a concert or a glam night out. I hope you like the video!

    Love all of these looks with but one complaint…

    I love maxi skirts/dresses except when they drag the ground. I can’t imagine a man’s dress pants hanging down past his shoes. Hem that sucker up an inch or two and it would look much nicer.
