Back In Black


I’m on a bit of a rock and roll kick this summer so far- I channeled some edgy rocker vibes in this OOTD with my maroon leather jacket and round sunnies.

I’m in love with this black maxi dress, my latest purchase from the amazing TJ Maxx! I tied it up to keep it off the ground, and also to add a bit of an edge to the silhouette. The soft jersey fabric is so versatile, and I’m loving wearing it in so many different ways this summer so far! I grabbed a silver necklace to add a little flair, but overall I tried to keep everything pretty minimal to let the details take center stage.

I added my ever-present Milani lipstick in Caberet Blend- it’s a great maroony-red shade that perfectly matches the jacket! I left the rest of my makeup neutral so as not to offset the bold lip.

I’m in love with these suede booties-they’re the perfect 70’s low boot! I have very similar ones in a different shade as well, and I wear them constantly! Booties are my vice 🙂

I couldn’t resist adding this last picture-I had way too much fun with this photoshoot 🙂 I think it captures the edginess I was going for rather well haha! I love wearing this maxi dress like this, and I have so many other ideas for it too! A black maxi dress is really the perfect staple for any closet in any season! It can be easily transformed no matter what your aesthetic is.

What do you think? How do you style a black maxi dress? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by!

See this jacket styled differently in In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb and these booties again in Good Vibes!

  1. I’m loving the maxi dresses this season, and yours looks great! I don’t think I’d wear a black maxi dress; I tend to get too hot in black clothing during the spring and summer. I would look for other colors though 🙂 Fun pictures!

  2. I really love the black maxi dress, maxi dresses are my favourite item of clothing to wear during the Summer months! They just look so effortless and are so easy to wear, this one looks great on you too! I love the way you put this outfit together & styled it, it’s very boho/rock chick and perfect for Summer, a daytime or evening look! Lovely post 🙂

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment, Gemma! Maxi dresses are something I never used to really wear, but now that I’ve tried them out I’m loving them! They’re so comfortable and make you look pulled together instantly! Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
