No matter the state of our wardrobe, we always find ourselves defaulting to a few staple items—especially in the summer when the weather conspires to make us extra sartorially lazy! A tank top paired with shorts has been our go-to for years, but this season we’re stepping up our style game and adding a maxi dress to the mix. Our editorial director Caitlin teamed up with Piperlime to demonstrate just how useful a maxi can be during the warmer months. Whether you’re running errands, heading to brunch or getting ready for date night, this on-trend style needs only a simple change of accessories to transform into a perfect outfit for every occasion. A feminine frock this versatile is sure to be in heavy rotation all summer long!
