I love a maxi dress in the warmer months, don’t you?To achieve good dollar per wear value you need to make your pieces work hard for you, this means finding ways to wear your pieces to achieve a few different looks. When it comes to maxis I like to dress them up with a jacket, and this new season off white jacket from City Chic is a winner.
This jacket works with my lighter hair colouring and skin tone beautifully and the lighter colour helps to settle a print.
A fitted or semi fitted jacket works best with a voluminous maxi, stops you looking like you have a balloon up your dress. this jacket comes in 3/4 sleeve which is perfect for showing a little skin at the wrist (slimming illusion), you can also roll your cuff a couple of times.
I’ve knotted the hem of my maxi to give a little more shape, show some ankle (and my shoes) and stop me from looking swamped. To finish off I added a neutral clutch and caramel (neutral) wedges. The wedges add height which instantly take my outfit up a notch in the dressy stakes.
Have you got a collection of summer jackets? Give them a try I swear you will love them…might even become a teensy bit addicted like me.
