Little Red Maxi

Every travel wardrobe needs a dress that makes you feel like a million bucks. I’m headed to South Beach soon and when I saw this red tropical print maxi from Urban Outfitters I was smitten. The strappy open back and peek a boo detailing lend the dress plenty of attitude and the airy fabric creates a dramatic silhouette on the beach. If you are looking to show a little leg, the fly away design gives you the ability to do so at your leisure. With so much to love, you can’t deny that it’s the total package.

Tips and Tricks

I can be shy about adding prints to my wardrobe. They can be tricky. A good rule of thumb is to choose smaller prints, which in my opinion are more flattering.

I’m going to be honest. I’ve had two kids and this dress doesn’t lend much in the way of support up top. So I utilized the help of some double sided tape just to make sure my dress stayed where it was supposed to. 
Tip: To save money, find double sided tape in strips at Sally’s Beauty Supply store under the name “Men’s Grooming Tape”. It is sold as toupee tape but it’s the exact same thing as what you purchase for double in the lingerie isle.

Style It
Because there is so much going on with this garment I chose to keep the styling simple. Gold offsets a tan well, so I layered on plenty of arm candy and opted for some dangly chandelier earrings for that extra bling. My classic tortoise shell sunnies and some strappy sandals finished it off for a very easy look.

If there is one thing I aspire to with my personal style it is that effortlessly chic look. For me that means keeping it simple, accentuating the positive, and limiting anything too fussy. I truly believe you can be fashionable and comfortable, and this dress certainly accomplishes both.

For less than a $100 this dress demands to be in your closet. It’s also available in a green banana leaf  print which is gorgeous.
