wear it with: maxi dress

11 May 2011
we've finally had some real spring weather in chicago, so i chose a maxi dress for this week's "wear it with" series! i love this paisley tibi maxi with it's feminine ruffle, crisscrossed back, and cinched waist. but if girly isn't your style, try toughening it up with a cropped leather jacket and studded jewelry.

how would you style this maxi?

I am so so in love with this dress, but not the price tag. Love both of the ways you styled it actually.

I would definitely wear it with a leather jacket (some mix and match is just my thing) and flat sandals (I think I'll take the Chloe ones;)). Gorgoeus outfits again. Hope the warm weather will last in Chicago. I'm still waiting for sunny days, it's unbelievable this so called spring we've been having...xo Ada

Taylor said...

YES YES YES!!! I love!!!!

Holly said...

I would def. style this dress with the accessories on the right! Those earrings are perfect!

Liz said...

I'm having a really difficult time deciding which paring I like best. Both work perfectly with that dress!

The Now said...

Wait - first of all, I just realized we're BIRTHDAY TWINS! My b-day was yesterday too! Secondly, I am seriously obsessed with the dress paired w/ the jacket. Such a cool and unexpected look! xo Annie

I like style number too. It's a summer dress, so why cover up the shoulders! ;)

Mimi said...

just the dress by itself is beautiful, but with your other picks, it's a whole new level of beautiful! i can't pick between the two, but i think i'd go for number 2. :D

p.s. i am a new follower! :)

I neeeeeed a dress like this! A slip on of comfortable, casual, and a bit romantic style. I'd pair with a jean jacket if the night was cool. And either of those sandals! :)

la petite coquine said...

Oh, how gorgeous! And those Chloe sandals? Be still my heart!

City Girl Chicago said...

A yello maxi dress is SO fresh ~ I'd wear it either way!
