I SPY: The Black Maxi

Sep 11, 2014

What's your favorite go to piece in your closet?  I bought this black maxi knit dress from Shopbop in Spring, and wore it to death over the summer!  Nothing special - just a basic black maxi dress.  What I love about it is that it is so comfy, easy to wear, makes a great dress to travel on the plane in, wear to the beach as a cover up with flip flops, and then you can even dress it up at night with nice sandals or heels, accessories and a clutch bag for dinner.  Extra bonus it's black, which is a timeless basic color, that doesn't show dirt, and best part - it's naturally slimming.  We all need something to feel good in on our 'fat' days right?  I feel like I can never go wrong wearing this dress and always look polished in it.  It's the perfect dress to pack in your suitcase because it's so versatile.  A no brainer.  That's what you call effortless dressing!

My summer black maxi became such a staple in my closet I had to get a similar style for Fall in a heavier fabric and sleeves to keep me warm.  I found it  - again at Shopbop!  I can already think of a bunch of ways how I'm going to wear this dress for Fall: Long riding boots, booties, throw a sweater or cardigan over, wear a leather vest with it, belt it, tie a handkerchief scarf around my neck, decorative tights that will peek through the slit…I'm going to get my moneys worth of this dress!

Are you a fan of black maxi dresses too?  If not, you may want to try this easy style!
