Summer Style: Romeo + Juliet Couture Maxi Dress

Have you ever found yourself getting a last minute call for a nice dinner or event? (Yes, that should be everyone).  I’ve had my fair share of moments like these, all the while frantically scrambling for something to wear.

Enter: the maxi dress.

My sister was the one who originally introduced me to maxi dresses. I was always a bit skeptical that they wouldn’t fit me because 1) nothing ever reaches my ankles #tallgirlprobz and 2) I thought they wouldn’t have enough lining underneath. While this issue does happen, I can say that this dress passes the test. Even though it’s white, it has two layers of lining underneath, so nothing shows through. Now, I wear this dress all the time. Seriously, ask any of my closest friends.  So, in short, what I’m trying to say is: maxi dresses are a great investment piece that require minimal effort with maximum style.

I should just start off by disclosing that I’m a huge fan of this brand and this romantic and feminine dress. One of my favorite parts of this dress is the crochet, lace details on the straps and across the bodice. I also love how lightweight it is! While there is a substantial amount of lining, it still feels breezy and comfortable to walk around in on a hot summer day.

When styling this outfit, I decided to make the dress a bit more casual by pairing it with a boxy, denim jacket and concho choker. However, you could easily wear it with a more tailored jacket for a more formal event. As versatile as this maxi dress is (even the pattern complements quite a bit of my wardrobe), there are many different styles, silhouettes, and colors that can completely transform your look. I’ve rounded up some of these options in the links below, and I’m looking forward to sporting this trend to the max all year round! Have any questions or comments? Feel free to leave ’em below!
