One of the best ways to stay cool and comfortable this summer is to wear a light and breezy maxi dress–something we have plenty of here at For Elyse! So for this week’s Outfit of the Week, our stylist Nicole picked out an outfit centered around a maxi dress that can take you from a day on campus to a evening barbeque! Check out the outfit below, as well as Nicole’s answers to our stylist interview!
Summer must-have: Maxi dresses are so breezy for summer, and an easy way to look put together while being comfy.
Guilty pleasure: Reading by the pool on my days off! Game of Thrones and The Lords of Discipline are my books right now.
Fashion icon: Alessandra Ambrosio! And Reese Witherspoon always looks so classy while being on trend. Timeless, cute, flattering.
What’s one fashion trend that will never go out of style? The jean jacket will be forever adorable.
Favorite current fashion trend? Stacks of bracelets on your wrists.
Tell me about the outfit you picked out, what was your inspiration, favorite piece, etc.? This look is inspired by my two fashion icons, Alessandro Ambrosio and Reese Witherspoon. I paired a peacock patterned maxi dress with a jean jacket…perfect for summer day/evening. I went with gold accessories, stacks of bangles and bracelets, and black sandals with gold hardware. To finish the look, I added and a fedora. Her bag adds great color and can be used as a cross body or clutch. This outfit has it all…pattern, texture, and shine.
