I'm not a big dress girl as you may have already noticed, but when I do wear them, I always tend to dress them down and make more of a casual statement. With sweatshirt weather now approaching, I had been on the hunt for a full dress to layer my warmer tops under. So when I learned that Maje was a couple seasons into the whole full skirt and dress trend, I knew I had to pick one up for myself especially because it turned out to be just the right silhouette.
I threw on a slightly slouchy jumper over my new Maje dress for a nonchalant day by the Lincoln Center near my upper west side home. I thought it appropriate to accessorize the look with the colorful five panel floral printed cap by Portelli, and kick it with some white sneakers to complete the casual statement.
For a more ladylike rest of the day, I just took the jumper off, swapped the sneakers for heels and pulled the hair back, adding some subtle jewelry. Don't the two looks feel very different?
