Reader Request: Accessorizing a Maxi Dress

Thanks to reader Brea Amour for another great blog request!

She recently purchased a maxi dress for summer and was wondering what kind of accessories to put with it! Maxi dresses are great, because they are light and airy, and can be appropriate for a variety of situations. They can be dressed up or down... and are comfortable as well!

The maxi dress she purchased was by 'Stem' from Nordstrom's:

She also purchased a white pullover shirt to put over the dress for more casual occasions, which will also be great to keep the sun off!

I love the idea of dressing up a maxi dress with adorable wedges and a cute clutch - or wearing it casually with a jeweled sandal and large sun hat. A statement piece of jewelry can also really work with a maxi dress, but I prefer one really great piece of jewelry with it versus alot of small pieces of jewelry. A long necklace or chunky, adorned bracelet can add interest.

Some of my favorite wedges to go with darker colored maxi dresses this season are bronze metallic:, KORS 'Wilshire' Sandal, $195
This wedge by Seychelles is also a great neutral color (Vachetta) that could work with a number of outfits:, Seychelles 'Purr' Wedge, $94.95
These flat sandals make a maxi dress more casual and I love the details on these:, Bernardo Mardi, $139
And what would a cute summer dress be, without a cute clutch to carry your personal items around in?, Tory Burch Rattan Flap Clutch, $275
And these statement pieces of jewelry could finish off the look:, Nordstrom Big & Bold Channel Cuff, $58
And this cuff is a bit more serious..., Argento Vivo 'Moonstruck' Cuff, $298
And just for good measure... a gorgeous pair of sunglasses to complete your outfit., Louis Vuitton Soupcon Oversize, $570
