Dressed Up Maxi

Dress: Splendid (black is sold out, available in navy & almond)
Chambray: Shein
Necklace: Mod & Soul (c/o)
Sunnies: Sunnies Studios (get 15% off Zalora with code ZBAPZD4H)
Watch: RumbaTime

I have a huge collection of maxi dresses but I did not realize until of late that I did not have a basic black maxi dress yet. This launched a major search for a black tank maxi dress. I have searched a few places and ended up getting it from Splendid via Shopbop. This ribbed maxi dress looks like the ideal maxi dress for a casual summer day - light, stretchy material and comfortable.

Dress: Splendid (black is sold out, available in navy & almond)
Chambray: Shein

Necklace: Mod & Soul (c/o)

Sunnies: Sunnies Studios (get 15% off Zalora with code ZBAPZD4H)

Watch: RumbaTime
But I wanted to depart from the typical casual look and decided to dress up this ribbed maxi dress. I incorporated my new SoHo leather watch from RumbaTime and statement necklace from Mod & Soul to glam up the dress. The chambray offered a light layer for the dress, which I think would definitely come in handy for the summer nights. The length is a bit longer than I would like from a typical maxi dress that I would wear (of course, I had to factor in my petite size) but I actually like the floor length for a more glammed up look!

How would you glam up a casual maxi dress like this ribbed tank one?

  64. I like how you styled it but there is one little problem with this dress - I can see your panty lines. You have a great, toned body so you can wear a dress like this
