Five Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress

Here at Studio 1220, we are in LOVE with maxi dresses. They are the most versatile summer piece you can buy. We have put together five completely different looks to fit your every occasion!

Lunch Date
Pair a maxi dress with a denim jacket for an easy yet put together day time look. If your maxi dress is basic, jazz it up with a cool detailed denim jacket. If your going with a printed maxi, throw on your solid denim jacket or chambray. You will be the envy of all the ladies lunching.  

Beachin' It
Add a bohemian twist to your maxi dress by pairing it with a crocheted tank.  The see through natural of these tops will still show off  your maxi dress, but give you a little more coverage and also add a free spirit flare.

Work it Out
Wanna wear your favorite piece to the office? Its surprisingly easy! Simply combine your go-to maxi dress with your favorite work-time blazer.  Throw on some jewels to funk it up and your on your way to looking chic but feeling exceptionally comfortable.  Don't forget your latte or you may find yourself falling asleep on the job.

Maxin' and Relaxin'
Make your maxi dress work as a skirt. Top it off with your favorite tank or tee for some serious kicking' around. Nobody will even know that your fresh skirt is the dress you wore yesterday!

Layer it Lightly
Too hot for a jacket? Don't sweat it! You can still add a layer in the form of a vest. We love denim vests for their versatility, but any vest can work here. Throw on a fedora and your ready to take on the heat.
