How OC Fashion “IT” Girls Rock this Summer Essential

Maxi dresses are an OC staple and it’s time we take our maxi dress style to the next level. For years many OC gals have simply thrown on their favorite cotton maxi and a pair of flip flops and called it day-that time is OVER. There are so many great choices for flat sandals these days it’s time to retire those flip flops. The simple step of trading flip flops for sandals will instantly take a maxi dress to the next level, but to be honest the maxi still needs a bit more styling-although it’s a start it’s still not quite enough.

From street chic and casual to modern and sophisticated, OC bloggers and fashion “it” girls are paving the way to maximum style. Check out 8 local trendsetters’ maxi dress style and get inspired to restyle your maxi dresses in a whole new way….

Tropical Prints

Lyndi in the City has beautifully styled her floral maxi with a bold pop of color in her handbag, a stack of colorful arm candy and metallic flats, giving her maxi a chic modern vibe.

Bohemian Inspired

The OC Native is our bohemian babe. I love how she mixed and matched her floral Flynn Skye maxi with  leopard Matisse booties giving her spring florals a serious edge.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Tailored Tantrums is always taking fashion risks. As a stylist Rebecca is constantly at the forefront of cutting edge street style. I love how she paired her pretty snake print maxi with a moto jacket & sneakers, while finishing her look with bold jewelry and bohemian braids. Be inspired to take risks!

Pretty in Pastels

Juggling in Heels is one hot mama in this T bags dress. Soft peachy pastels flatter most skin tones while the draping and cut of the dress both create and flatter curves. This is another example of picking a dress that is figure flattering. I love Sarah’s addition of white strappy heels and elegant fine jewelry-so chic!
