First off, this print is too cute. I love how the dress is styled with a belt and chunky Doc Martens. It makes the flirty dress look a bit edgy, especially when the black saddlebag is added. Try tying a belt around a loose dress to accentuate your waist more.

Speaking of accentuated waists, this wrap dress looks amazing. The vertical stripes add length, and the silver accessories complete the look. My favorite part of this fit, though, is the platform sandals — they look equally stylish and comfy.

Blazin'

If you’re looking to dress up your maxi, try adding a blazer. This fit works well because the blazer is in the same colorway as the dress, making a monochromatic effect. If you’re feeling daring, try a printed maxi mixed with a printed blazer.

Technically, this is more of a midi dress, but look at those details! The tulle is so beautiful, and light enough for the hot weather. The simplistic heels and accessories only accentuate the dress. For a similar princess-y look, try layering something light and sheer over a slip dress.

Okay, I think I just found the dress of my dreams. I mean, it checks all my boxes: body-hugging, sparkly, and fringe. To transform a longer party dress like this into an everyday look, dress down with sneakers, a graphic tee and a leather or denim jacket. 

Heart Eyes

This flirty look is brought to you by ruffles, flowers and bows. I love all the details on this dress and the added heart-shaped sunglasses complete the look. Let your printed maxi speak for itself or add statement accessories for well, a more statement look.

Who says maxi dresses don’t let you show a little leg? This dress has it all: a belted waist, ruffles and an off-the-shoulder neckline. Wear with heels to get a similar look or pair with sneakers and a leather jacket to edge it up.

When in doubt, keep it simple. The floral design on this dress makes it easy to wear solo, but my favorite part is actually the pleating. Dress up the look with some statement earrings and sandals.

 There’s definitely a million ways to wear maxi dresses — which styling was your favorite? I’m wearing mine with a leather jacket, sneakers and a belt tied around my waist.
