Popcherry Forest For Last Maxi Dress, Wittner Otto Heels, Basque Wide Brim Hat, MICHAEL Michael Kors Medium Jet Set Cross Body Bag.

It’s no secret that I love a styling challenge, especially when it involves transforming a cheaper basic into a stylish must-have. This Popcherry maxi is a classic example, with a romantic floral pattern and a lot of fabric to play with, this piece has some serious styling versatility.

My first stylish tip is to add a thick, statement belt to cinch the waist. Not only does this create a more flattering shape, but it also allows you to experiment with the shape of the dress. As there is a lot of fabric to play with, I recommend pairing this piece with a pair of heels. I’ve chosen a little ombre block heel by Wittner, to keep this look chic and yet still casual for a weekend stoll with the beau.

Of course the real game changer in this ensemble, is the stylish addition of a sophisticated, wide brimmed hat, guaranteed to elevate your outfit from basic, to luxe statement. Teaming this Basque summer necessity with my ensemble, creates a more mature edge, not to mention it’s sun smart, which is highly important for those outdoor summer romps and romances.
