Fabulous Guest- A post by Annalise from Pastel Bokeh- 'How I Style...'

Hi Guys!

I am so pleased to host one of my friends' posts today!! I have known An for around 2 + years when we took part in the same production back at Uni! She was also one of my make up models for my course!! Hope you enjoy this post!

Hi everyone!
I’m Annalise and I blog at After being approached by the lovely Martina to write a guest post on her blog, I decided that I should write a ‘How I Style’ post, my favourite! Whether you’re going out during the day or at night, I opted to style a plain black maxi dress in three ways.

Outfit 1
This outfit can be worn during the day or even at night. I have teamed the maxi dress with a beige knit jumper from H&M. 

It’s all about layering! Keeping with the brown theme of the jumper, I would wear a pair of tan flats, such as these available from Topshop

and a matching tan bag. Yes, I generally tend to match my shoes and bag! To finish off the look, I accessorised with the oh-so-famous gold chunky chain necklace and chunky gold stacked rings.

Outfit 2
For a more casual look, I sometimes like to tie a small knot at the bottom of my maxi dresses. To keep things looking simple, I layered the dress with a denim jacket, and completed the look with a pair of leather cut-out ankle boots. I am currently in love with this pair from ASOS

Finish off the outfit by accessorising with your favourite rings. These ones from ASOS would look great 

Outfit 3
This outfit is definitely my favourite from these sets. To achieve this look, simply team the plain black maxi dress with a leather jacket and a pair of flat gladiator sandals. For accessories, I chose this Romwe chunky chain necklace in silver and a pair of sunglasses. 
To give the outfit a pop of colour, simply wear bold red lips and you’re ready to go!

Which of these outfits is your favourite? How would you style a black maxi dress?
