Dresses are always an easy option simply because it requires zero further thought in terms of having to think of what top will match with which bottom. Whenever I wear one I just throw on accessories and I’m done.
This Maggie Marilyn dress is particularly great as I love that it manages to combine a few interesting finishes in one with out it being over the top. The simple slip dress silhouette is elevated by the mixture of statement stripes in candy shades along with the ruffles along the top (if you like this here’s another way to combine the stripes and ruffles, I also like this look) which all add up to a dramatic, yet wearable style.
It’s really a must to let a dress such as this to be the focal point of an ensemble so I opted to keep things quite simple. Metallic Maje slides are the ideal complementary colour whilst neutral accessories in the form a blush Mimco bag and black sunglasses are understated and don’t overwhelm such a standout piece.
Tell me—are you a fan of statement dresses? Do you like mixing different finishing details such as stripes and ruffles?
