Going to the Max! How to Wear a Maxi Top

Floral Maxi Top Summer Outfit Ideas

How is July treating you guys? 

It's been super fun and super hot, but I'm trying to not get sucked into the overly casual uniform of shorts and tanks, even when you are dealing with 90 degree temps!  Trying to stay stylish and cool (literally) can be a challenge. I don't know if maxi tops are a big trend yet, but I saw a few when I was browsing Fashion Nova and was instantly intrigued. 

How to Wear a Maxi Top

A maxi dress type of silhouette, but with the ease of a crop top? It was basically two of my favorite fashion things combined!

If you aren't super into trends but still want to look current, a maxi top is a great way to walk the line. It has the same easy, breezy, casual chic vibe as a maxi dress, but the fact that it's a top makes it a little unexpected. 

I paired it with simple white denim shorts since they matched the white in the top. You can also style with jeans if you want to show less leg, or wide leg cropped pants to maximize the flowy vibe. But I definitely prefer them paired with heels! I felt like flats were way too casual and made me feel like the top was drowning me. If you are taller you may be able to rock flats, but as a petite style blogger, I need the height to make this look work.
