get the look: RACHEL ZOE BLACK MAXI AND BELT

Maxi dresses are so easy and comfortable but sometimes they lack in the shape department.  Rachel Zoe solved that problem by throwing on a wide waist belt with her loose black maxi dress.  She finished the look off with a fanned bib statement necklace and simple clutch.  Simple, elegant and so easy!

Here is how you can put this look together:
- Extra Long Boy Tank Dress by Otis and Maclain - Retail $160 / Sale $46
- Cleopatra Necklace by Lisa K - Retail $350 / Sale $65
- Waist Belt with Flat Studs by Linea Pelle - Retail $150 / Sale $75
Rose Foldover Clutch by Tucker Paisley - $225

GTBB,
Bad Joan

I love this look on R Zoe but somehow when I try to belt a maxi it never looks so flattering. Great finds I like the clutch you featured more than Zoe's! I live in maxi dresses in the summer and this year I'm going to try and wear my maxi's into the fall. Last year I put them away much too quickly.

Love those bib necklaces. They are so gorgeous. And look at her rocking brown and black together! I love ladies that break the rules. :)

I personally LOVE maxi dresses. I think they are so so comfy. I can't wait to wear some of mine this fall (some were too warm for summer)


Thanks so much for your comment
