How to wear: The Maxi Dress

Woops, long time no see... Finally, I have holiday for two weeks!
One week at home, and another week in Rome! Can't wait for that...
Anyway, I haven't very much time to post, so it's not the planned Vintage Shoplog
(coming soon), but a 'How To Wear Post'.
It's my second one, and I enjoy making this post very much.
The subject of the HTW post is the maxi dress.
I think you all know that dress. It looks beautiful in the shops, but you have no idea how to combine this dress...
Well, I have the solution =)
I made three different spring looks, a romantic one, a colorful one, and a hippie inspired look.

Just take a look and you might get some inspiration.
Have fun!

Romantic colours like pastels are easy  to combine. 
Something I really like is the combination of  denim and pastels, especially bleached denim.
I choose shoes in a contrasting colour, to prevent the look is too soft.

For this look I use a colorful, striking dress. 
A coulorful maxi dress looks gorgeous on black woman, I think so.
Unfurtunately, I look too pale for this dress :-/
The accesoiries for this outfit are nude coloured, or simply black or white.
Don't use too much colours, all the attention must be on the dress!

Hippies just loved long dresses, and they wore it a lot!
If you would dress yourself the hippie way, you should definately ware
much jewelry. Think long necklaces, big feather earrings and a lot of bracelets.
And, of course, your brown sandals.
Peace man!

Which look do you prefer?
And do you wear a maxi dress?
