How To Take A Maxi Dress From Day To Night

A simple grey maxi dress is one of my favourite things to wear: not only is it comfy but it's also incredibly versatile. Perfect for a casual day out and a great choice for travel (read my Airport Fashion Picks here if you haven't already) maxis can easily be dressed up for the evening as well. Here's how I like to do it!

Daytime 
Dress: Primark | Shirt: Next | Hat: Atmosphere | Trainers: Nike Roshe | Necklace: Acessorise Watch: Next 

Keeping it super casual in the daytime is the key! However, I do often feel like this dress needs a little clinch at the waist. A plaid shirt does just the job without the need for a belt whilst adding a touch of colour. I'm loving casual dresses/skirts with trainers at the minute, so this felt like the natural pairing. This straw hat is great for sunny days, though I'm secretly lusting after an old-school baseball cap (don't ask why, I can't explain it!) I love this outfit for everyday casual summer style.
   
Evening
Dress: Primark | Hat: Whistles | Belt: Zara | Clutch: John Lewis | Sandals: Ugly Duckling | Watch: Next | Lipstick: Clinique Berry Freeze

To dress this maxi up I like to add a little touch of bling and a few extra elements. This clutch is seriously sparkly but the hat and casual sandals keep the outfit wearable. I love this white studded belt from Zara for some extra detail. I like the keep my accessories 'city chic' (lol) to avoid the 'holiday' look that a maxi can often veer towards.

That's all folks! I hope you like the way I take this outfit from day to night. I personally prefer to reserve printed maxis for abroad, but a plain simple one can be a great addition to any everyday wardrobe. I would love to know how you style yours! xo
