spring will officially be here in three weeks which definitely warrants a new piece in the wardrobe. I'm talking super-spring-feeling-can't-wear-it-to-work-piece. which leads me to the off the shoulder maxi dress. this piece is the best of both worlds for spring time shenanigans. the off the shoulder neckline allows you to bask in the warm weather and gives a flirty nod toward summer while the long length provides a bit more warmth for cooler temps once the sun goes down.
maxi dresses are so versatile because they require little to no accessories (ahem, me while running errands) but they can also be dressed up with different accessories if you want. the off the shoulder maxi is begging for fun, funky earrings which will further accent your collar bone area.
for sun protection if you're out and about, I would throw on a straw fedora or a wide brimmed hat. your favorite spring sandals pair easily with a maxi dress, but you can also wear espadrilles for some height. a big chunky woven tote and sunglasses would top off all of these choices.
that's the magic of a maxi - throw it on and go! the off the shoulder touch modernizes this silhouette and brings a fresh new way to wear a maxi dress this spring. what's your favorite spring piece this year?
