how to style a maxi dress

A knit maxi dress is a versatile wardrobe piece. It is simple and comfortable to wear and easy to accessorize. There are so many ways to style a maxi dress!

Being that it’s one of my personal favorite items in my own closet, I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to style a simple knit maxi dress. You very easily bring it from day to evening, casual to dressy with a few well chosen accessories. The possibilities truly are endless!

Here my 6 favorite ways to style a knit maxi dress….

With a scarf

Adding a scarf elevates a simple dress to another level and gives an added element of interest and style. You can express your personality with a fun or pretty scarf. And it’s so easy to change out the look simply by changing the scarf.

With a wide belt

I love the simplicity of a knit maxi dress with a wide belt. Not only does it emphasize the waistline, but the right belt can really make a statement. Choose one that’s colorful and interesting, and your outfit will be simple by far from boring.

With a jacket

Make a maxi dress office ready by adding a jacket or blazer. It can take the look up to a much dressier level. Worn with a pair of pumps and some statement jewelry, you have a comfortable by sophisticated look that’s work-wear ready.

With statement jewelry

Adding a statement necklace or earrings to a simple knit dress can really spice up the look and make an impact on the overall feel of the outfit. It’s a super simple way to look amazing. Let the simplicity of the dress be the perfect backdrop for an interesting and eye catching piece of jewelry to shine.

With a button down

Wear a button down shirt over your maxi dress, and you’ll instantly change the look completely. By adding a shirt over the top of the dress, you are creating an entirely new look. It will give the impression of a top worn with a skirt, and will multiply your styling options.

With a cardigan

I love this look for church, date night, or some other semi-dressy event where you want to look pretty without having to put in a ton of effort. A colorful cardigan over a neutral dress with be eye-catching and eye pleasing. Add some jewelry and a pair of feminine shoes are your good to go!

So, which of these options is your favorite? Personally, I’ve worn and love them all!
