The Right Way to Wear a Maxi Dress, According to Olivia Palermo

We couldn't help but notice that Olivia Palermo has been stepping out in a number of bohemian-inspired looks since the weather warmed up, and her collection for Nordstrom has a pronounced boho theme running throughout. Which is why we weren't surprised when Palermo attended an event yesterday wearing a past-season long-sleeve Zara maxi dress with lace-up heels and a neutral colorblock clutch. Her heels kept the flowy dress from appearing sloppy, which can be a challenge with this dress style, and her simple clutch added a modern touch without distracting from the vibe. To channel Palermo's boho-babe look in your life, dress your maxi up with statement-making heels and keep the rest of your look simple and streamlined.
