Think about it—whether a maxi dress or skirt, they're easy to wear, even better to pack, and no demanding styling is needed. You can literally wear a basic Tee, maxi skirt, and sandals and have either an overall casual aesthetic or even transform those pieces into a more refined ensemble!
I decided to wear this silk dyed maxi dress one day to work, and then to meet with friends later. It was one of those occasional work weekends. But, I made the most of it, and wanted to be dressed slightly more relaxed than normal work attire and without going for denim.
It was a low-key night, and I knew that most of the others that I was planning to meet were going to be very casual, so I swapped out my cropped blazer and opted for a cargo jacket. Why do I love it? It’s multifunctional and has loads of pockets!
Sometimes the most effective elements are random and simple. For me, it was pairing a nice silk dress that I found in the depths of my closet with comfortable shoes! I also liked the casual vibe to the look and blended favourable vintage to add texture with an earthy, yet contemporary feeling! Either way, it was the right combination of comfort and style that I wanted. Are you a maxi lover?
