This Dress up a Maxi Dress Karina Dresses outfit of the day is made possible by Karina Dresses, where I received an Adele Dress free of charge to model as part of the ongoing Frockstar™ Nation Event. All opinions are my own.
I have absolutely loved summer! Haven’t you? The weather has been so beautiful! Lots of sun and lots of outdoor fun. Summer is the best time of the year to wear a Maxi Dress. And you know just how popular those are right? They are everywhere!
But sadly summer is coming to a close. School is starting and parents have to go back to business casual fashion and soon put away the summer fashion. But I’m a practical Mama. I like to make sure my clothes are versatile for all seasons. So I’m going to show you how to dress up a maxi dress so you can wear it to work, meetings, or to school yourself!
Dressed Up Maxi Dress
To begin you start with your favorite Maxi dress. As you heard last month the Adele Maxi dress from Karina Dresses is easily my favorite Maxi dress. The style is absolutely perfect! It flows across your body making you feel flirty and comfortable at the same time.
It is a full-length maxi dress, and features a waistband, with a v-front and a v-back. And is very lightweight. This time I am using the Adele in Blue Feathers pattern.
If you are well endowed in the chest region you will want to make sure that it isn’t cut too deep and showing too much. What is appropriate for summer, isn’t always appropriate for dressing up a Maxi dress or using it at work.
For this I use a Half-Tee. It covers the shoulders and makes sure I have enough coverage on the top too.
Now as we are; we have a great summer look. Plop on a fun pair of sandals and you are good to go for a fun park date or day of shopping. But we’re not done yet.
Throw on a shrug or cardigan in a coordinating blue! Have it flow well with your body shape.
Use a fun Silver chain belt to give an instant slimmer look. I love Ross Dress for Less for the belt selections.
Add on some fun silver and blue/green jewelry. The Adele dresses look fabulous with silver jewelry. And Paparazzi is a favorite of mine because the jewelry is very light but still gives the chic look without the extra weight. Because let’s face it; the summer heat is still here. I don’t need any more weight to make me feel hotter.
Top it off with a great pair of comfortable closed toed shoes like my Cobb Hill Sadie shoes.
You have now successfully dressed up a Maxi dress! Adding a few accessories you can now successfully wear your favorite summer dress for a whole new season and still look great! I love versatile clothes like that! Yet, another reason why I love Karina Dresses so much! You can alter them with accessories and they work for every season!
