Day ‘n’ Night

The maxi dress, a great summer staple and also a great day to night piece!  I was sent this gorgeous snake print maxi from Missguided to style as day to night.  I used to think maxi dresses were a bit of a ‘cheat’ when it comes to fashion because there’s not much to do with them, they are in themselves an outfit.  However over time my thoughts have changed and playing around with the styling during this post I came up with so many options.  For my ‘day’ look I chose this Missguided washed out black denim jacket and threw a basic white tee on over the dress (to hide that low v!) and knotted it at the side of the waist to give some shape.  I’m not much of a flats girl so I have heeled chelsea boots on but you could add some kind of biker boot or even a flat sandal or gladiator as a flat option.  My ‘night’ look is simple; the dress, killer heels and a leather jacket thrown over my shoulders.  In this case, the dress, and that neckline can do all the talking!
