The summer has seen the craze of the maxi go, well, maximized. We are all insane for the length (cool) and the shape (forgiving) and it looks amazing day or night. If you’ve got a summer with pool parties, garden parties, backyard cocktails, rooftop cocktails and/or the wedding gauntlet, maxi dresses are your best friends.
This gorgeous maxi from Bird by Juicy Couture (the slightly edgier rocker sister line of the brand) is just the right mixture of pretty and cool. The print has this gorgeous look of storm clouds gathering on a cut that couldn’t be more flattering (remember the strapless bra with support for the girls, ladies.) I love this look as shown with flat sandals and a clutch, but I’m even more excited to give this a whirl with tall boots and a leather jacket or cropped blazer come fall. You could even wear it over a thin silk turtleneck with a great necklace when it gets cooler or wrap an oversized cardigan over it and throw on some studded ankle boots. The possibilities are endless.
Even though this dress will be amazing for this season, it’s true beauty lies in the fact that – utilizing the options outlined above – it is truly seasonless. That’s what makes it a truly great wardrobe addition.
