Say "Yes" To The Maxi Dress

It's easy, it's sleek, it's versatile, it's the maxi dress! Dresses are one of the easiest items to wear. They are fuss-free and a classic investment piece. You can start wearing them now by layering with a jacket and scarf. I've even seen dare devils in the city pair with oversized sweaters and converse sneakers. Worried about looking bulky? Belt it. Yes, you can accent your waist if it's your trouble spot. Just be sure to secure the belt below your bust line. *DBJ Style Tip: A wider belt will create a smaller waistline.

What I'm W E A R I N G
The print: Stripes add length and effectively narrow a curvy shape.

The Accessories: When pairing with a simple print, make a statement with your jewelry. I chose the modern chunky gold chain necklace. It complements the monochrome color scheme, but doesn't compete. The big, bold, and rosy rings stand out against the rest of the outfit.
I can't wait to style this maxi again with some neons. I'll wait for summer to make that statement ;).
