Our Thrifty Friday Creative Fashion Pick comes in a sumptuous twisted maxi dress in upbeat color. See the look and learn why this maxi is a great steal and how to style it.
When we speak of maxi dress, we think of summer. We imagine the sea of maxi dresses in various styles strutting along sun-kissed streets and maxi dress wearing women taking over the land, usually in flip-flops.
But I digress. Maxi dress isn´t only for summer, it can be worn for Fall and Spring seasons too, if you know what to do.
Today´s featured item for a Thrifty Friday is a gorgeous twisted spaghetti straps maxi dress in Sulphur shade. I love its V-neckline a lot, and its shirred banded waist. It´s made of cotton with lining for inside layer. It hits below the ankle.
In summer, you can wear this dress as is with flip-flops or flat sandals and oversized sunnies for a casual stroll. Quickly dress it up by wearing with it wedge sandals or sexy espadrilles. You can add colorful accessories to accent it such as bangles in assorted colors or long beaded necklace. But when the weather turns chilly, take it out of its element by toughening it with a leather jacket and killer ankle boots.
Create the Look!
Look #1 for Summer
This is how I´d wear the twist maxi dress in a summer. I´d pair it with white beads thong sandals or suede espadrille wedges depending on whether I´m off to a BBQ party or a weekend get together with friends. I like to carry a cafe beach bag or a large, double-strapped shoulder bag for a very summer, lux look.
Look #2 for Fall
And this my version of this twist maxi dress for Fall. Yellow and black are known to create a beautiful mix. I would toughen the maxi dress with a cropped leather jacket and pair them with lace up high heel ankle boots. My only accessory is a silver head watch. If I feel a bit more chilly, I can also throw over a flannel scarf, underneath the jacket.
