How Jaime King Makes a Maxi Dress Polished (No Flip-Flops Allowed!)

Undeniably, maxi dresses are the staple piece for summer. They’re light, they’re comfortable, and they instantly pull together a look for any occasion. But the floor-skimming frock also comes with its own specific styling tricks to guarantee you look put together and polished while still giving off those cool, ethereal vibes.

To illustrate one no-fail way to look refined in your maxi, we’re taking notes from Jaime King, who recently stepped out in a printed, off-the-shoulder style in Los Angeles. Instead of flip-flops, the actress chose a classic pair of leather flats, which give the look a sophisticated appeal. Want to give the outfit a bit more edge? Couple the dress with your favorite sneakers to give a bit more sportiness to an otherwise feminine ensemble.
