A Good Maxi Dress is for everyone

I recently discovered my love for a maxi dress. I am a mom, a fashion entrepreneur and a frequent traveller. I like dresses that make me look effortlessly good and voila a maxi dress does exactly that. 
Here is a pick of some of my tried and tested favorite maxi dresses, that will make you look uber stylish without putting too much thought into styling them or ironing them. Our scuba maxi dresses are no iron and can be worn right out of the suitcase.

How to Style a Beach Maxi Dress

Whether you’re off to the beach on vacation or entertaining at home by the pool, a beach maxi dress is a great look.  Here’s how to style a beach maxi to give it a fresh, summer vibe.

1. Add Straw Bag

There are many summer beach maxi dresses that are cute, to begin with, but add some beachy accessories, and your style score goes up x10.  Here’s what I mean.

This pretty floral beach maxi dress with the dainty spaghetti straps,  ruffled hem, and feminine front slit is soft and summery. A heavy leather bag would weigh it down.

But pair it with a straw tote, and you instantly get a stylish seaside feel.  This darling black and white tote with the playful, round handle and fun tassels looks light and airy even in black and has a cute, whimsical feel.

If you can’t find a straw bag, go for rattan, rope, or even crochet to enhance the vacation vibe.

2.  Include Shell Accents

If you’re styling anything beachy, a natural choice for jewelry is anything that includes shells, glass, or beach stones. This outfit is a great example. Start with a pretty boho beach maxi dress in a colorful, tropical floral print. I like this one because of the romantic peasant sleeves and the beautiful tie front.

Then, add some natural earrings like these gorgeous, gilded-edge shells framed by twisted hoops. These statement-making earrings work because they have an arts and crafts feel that fits into a breezy beach look. Be sure to wear dangly earrings or hoops to match this carefree boho outfit. Studs are too uptight.

3.  Slip On Strappy Sandals

Wondering what kind of shoes to wear with a beach maxi? The answer is easy. Anything strappy is summery and sexy.  Wedges are an obvious choice because they are comfy, practical, and easy to walk in when you want some height. Again, you are after a natural look and feel, so wear rope, straw, wood, cork, or braided wedges to nail the beach vibe.

This bright, twist-front beach maxi is one of my favorites. I love the exotic print and the explosion of color. The black rope wedges look like they’re made for it!

4. Wear Anything Beaded

Another great way to enhance the beachy vibe of a casual beach maxi dress (or in the case above, a midi dress), is to wear anything beaded.  Colorful, rustic beads have a native look and feel that complement a beachy summer look.

I love the way this breezy, striped linen slip dress comes to life when you add swingy, beaded tassel earrings. It makes it feel like a fun summer ahead!

These are just a few of the beautiful, long beach maxi dresses you’ll find right now. I have linked more below.
