  1. Hello Alyssa, I’ve been watching every single episode. I just rewatched this one and wanted to know if you can give me other options on how I can wear my maxi’s for the office. I love maxi’s and want to wear them more at the office. Thanks Scarlett

  2. Idk where you “summer” at but it must be cold! It’s July 4th here in Ohio in The States and it’s 92 degrees. You would be so hot in all of that besides 2 of them! These are great for fall 🤷🏼‍♀️

  3. Super

  4. Loved outfits 3 and 8 ! 👍

  5. 7,8 mindblowing

  6. Your hair…

  7. u r great

  8. Would love to see a Fall Maxi Dress video too!

  9. Wow!! Lots of new ideaa to wear what we already have in the closet. Thank you so much for your creativity and sharing ❤️

  10. Great awesome great thinking out of the box. Will keep video to remember your ideas I’ve had such a problem

  11. amazing dresses’GRECERELLE Women’s Sleeveless Racerback and Long Sleeve Loose Plain Maxi Dresses Casual Long Dresses with Pockets;

  12. That dress is swallowing her and doesnt look good or right on her to begin with so all the looks looked off bc she could have picked a better dress to begin with in my opinion

  13. Bharat hota to isko dhoti jesa bna dete thhe…😂😂😂

  14. Love 3, 8 & 9! Just found your channel! 💗

  15. Love the color of the dress, link is down and I’m looking for similar, what color will best describe it?

  16. Nice if people would style their clothes, not too hard to do, may cut down on the need to shop and buy new! I like bringing in blazers and jackets, they sort of fell by the wayside when the yoga butt look took over.

  17. Sooper i liked all the styles

  18. #3 Urban chic my fav! Although gotta say, with your figure a maxi dress is the last thing I would wear! It hides you too much. 😉

  19. Thank you! Just what I was looking for. A simple video showing me how to utilise items I already own. I know this vid is old now, but still on point. I loved that you skipped passed all of the listing all your items malarkey and got on with it. Definitely need to see how to style for other seasons too.

  20. NIce 👍

  21. I am a year too late but I was looking for ways to accessorize my maxi dress for a Christmas party, the elevated and fancy and cinched look inspired me.

  22. Thank you so much for posting this ❤️. Yes, winter is here, Please post winter maxi dress or maxi skirt ( like knit pencil style long skirt which is popular this year, but seems hard to make it chic and stylish). Thanks 😊

  23. Hi, what’s the name for the background music towards the end of the video? Loves it! Thanks 😊

    1. Thank you! If you check out DJ Quads on Soundcloud you will find! xx

  24. I love it! Thanks for sharing

  25. Orange looks good on you…congratulations…

  26. Super interesting and cool! I admire your styling ideas!

    1. I’m so glad you like them Wanda, thanks for watching! xx

  27. Omg.. Fabulous

    1. Thanks for watching!

  28. I liked the knotted tricks to enhance the look of the dresses or shirts – Cool👌. Thanks for the tips 🤗

  29. Elevated

  30. Yes! Please make a fall maxi dress look video!

    1. Thanks for watching Karen!

  31. Where can I find a similar dress the one you have is no longer available

  32. Omg! I have the same dress! Color, long! I wss about to trow it in the trash 😂 Thank you. A leather jacket can rock too

  33. Oh.. thank you. This works great for So Calif, cause our Fall is always very hot… can be 90’s-100’s.
    Your denim jacket might only be good for our Fall mornings and nights when it cools a tiny bit, and the rest is good for daytime. It can be 110 degrees in Sept or Oct
    My d-i-l is tall and really liked you video with the teal midi dress. She should like this a lot too. Thank you

  34. I looove Nr. 8

  35. Wow Girl you know how to work it!

  36. Clever lady 😉

  37. That maxi dress and its contrasting trim! 😍🤩

  38. Thank you so much I love this video!

  39. I love it! The knotted one was a take on knotted I haven’t seen before, and it was my favorite one.

  40. I am not too sure about the 6 lol

  41. Thanks for that fabulous video! I was sewing a Maxi dress as your video starts to play on my computer next to me. I can’t believe how many looks I can now create! I don’t like all the looks that I have tried, but for sure, I will recreate 3 of those new looks! Thanks a lot! 🙂
    And now, I have no choice… I’m a new subscriber and need to watch all those amazing videos! 😊

  42. Urban and elevated. Love the cinched look. 😀👍🏼

  43. I admire your creativity and your approach to dressing up without buying more.  If you’ll allow me a tiny bit of constructive criticism, I think this particular dress would be more versatile if it was hemmed about 2 inches higher.  That way, it’d still look beautiful with heels, but lend itself better to be worn with sneakers.  Lots of love from the eastern USA!

  44. Absolutely Love Love Love every creative outfit, you have totally inspired me. Grazie tantissimo 👍🙋🏻😊

  45. Actually so helpfull! thank you❤️

  46. can you do that with a maxi skirt?

  47. that’s a great dress!

  48. I’ve got to say the #4 knotted look is just the thing I needed! I’m short. I have a draped asymmetrical maxi dress that was just too long in the front. I did the knotted look & it didn’t take anything away from the dress, in fact it enhanced to look. Thank you soooo much! I also have the same dress in a different color that I took to have hemmed for $40. when I just could have used a rubber band. Ugh!

    1. haha ahh no worries! Getting clothes altered is a great strategy, but i’m so glad you found the rubber band trick useful for other pieces! 🙂 Thanks so much for watching xx

  49. Yesssss!! Something that we can actually wear!

  50. Yeah, i love your video!

  51. Мне понравились все комбинации !! Подписалась. 👗

  52. I’ve watched this video several times … At 55 I’m slowly learning how to dress with a more versatile mindset – I have to many ” wear one way ” pieces and the more I travel the smarter my packing has to be. I have several tanks built like the top of this dress and I wish to have some support or a little more coverage underneath. Can you please recommend some bralette ideas – under garments can so make or break an outfit. Smooth cup or lace or ???? Thanks

  53. All are great but Urban Chic (3) and 8 are my faves. You nailed this. I’ve got several maxis I’m taking on vacation and can now get more mileage with them, so THANKS!

  54. The Denim jacket over a white shirt, w/ straw bag and white shoes is effortlessly chic. Also, lived the denim shirt knotted at the waist. 😘

  55. Omg! That hair tie trick! Thank you! 😍

  56. You can never really pick one AB masterpiece, But elevated really caught my style. The skill you have with an elastic is beyond human. : ) Super power really. Cinching made a whole new dress, with just a teeny little elastic. Never have seen that done, on this planet. Out of this world. Bravo!

  57. Excellent job Alyssa!💕

  58. Just found your channel👍🙌🏼 you gained a new subscriber

    1. 😉

    2. Aw yay!! That’s amazing! Thanks so much I hope you enjoy it!! 🥰

  59. Lovely! Can you try a floral dress once? They are so tough to style.

  60. Love, love, love this! Great ideas, Alyssa! 💛 Rosemary

  61. Perfect timing… I am going for a 3 day conference tomorrow. will be bringing one dress and try 3 of your ideas! Thank you!

  62. that urban chic outfit #3 is super cute! what belt is that? a leather wrap belt?? 🙂

    1. thank you glad you like it! yes, it is a leather wrap belt – so useful! I’ve linked to something similar in the description:)

  63. Love the way that dress hangs

    1. Thank you! Me too 🙂

  64. Love the music to this video, what is it? 💕😊

  65. Thank you for creating another great video! I always enjoy your cheerful and calm energy. Obi belts are the best. For people like me with a few more inches in the waist area, a slightly skinnier one is more flattering imo.

    1. Oh I interesting thought Katherine! Belts are great little tools 🙂 so glad you liked the video 🙂 thank you for watching!

  66. Thanks! Maxi dresses are some my favorite wardrobe pieces, and I can always use more ideas to wear locally and on trips away from home. 😊❤P.S. I’ve gotten most of my maxi dresses from, great deals and
    multiple solid colors and patterns in the same styles.

    1. They are super versatile! Thanks so much for watching xx

  67. Love look 3 – and 5! I’m inspired!

  68. Cool. I thought I got a lot of wear from my maxi but you took it to another level. Appreciate it. We’re right smack in the middle of summer so hot. Going to do some of the styles I haven’t done before. The knitted white tee with sneakers and the knotted long sleeves top 😎

    1. Nice!! So glad you found some new ideas with your own maxi Carol 🙂 thanks for watching and enjoy summer! xx

  69. You gave me so many ideas! Bring on summer! Thank you!

    1. wendy Blue thank you for watching!

  135. This dress is from where?

    1. Rutuja Patil hi Ratuja ! It is from Shop Tobi but is several years old … I’ve checked their site and can’t find anything similar but they do come out with new styles often! Thank you for watching!

  136. 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞

    1. Karin Jonsson thanks for watching!♥️😘

  137. Loved it !! Very trendy and innovative 👌💖

  138. love ur vid… u r so creative… thank you😍😘😘😘

    1. Tanty Siegle yay! So glad you liked it thank you for watching! xx

  139. I loved the urban chic look! I might need a tutorial on that knotted belt look. Was that piece of fabric you used sold as a belt? Is it just a long piece of silky fabric? How did you get it to look so sharp? My “style a scarf as a belt” looks are always so sloppy.

    1. Thanks! I’ll have to keep an eye out for one of those

    2. Jodie Marshall hi Jodie! It’s a large leather obi belt – comes in handy all the time 🙂 I linked to a similar one in the description:) hope this helps as thank you for watching! xx

  140. 8 and 9 were the best, I could see myself doing those. great tips.

    1. Jay Zuco glad you found some looks you like! Thanks for watching! xx

    1. yay! Glad you liked it thanks for watching Marie! xx

    1. CandyKeesh yay! Hi and welcome! So glad you liked those looks! And YES I’ve had that wide leather belt for YEARS and use it all the time:) thx for watching! xx

  143. I like no 8&9

    1. Ulefone U008pro yay! Thx for watching!

  144. Alyssa, i must say – all the outfits are fabulous and i will definitely give them a go next summer 😊😊. Loving your channel xx

    1. Cindy N yay! So glad you found some looks you like – thanks for watching Cindy!

  145. I agree urban was great

    1. Delta Ann Okin yay! So glad you found a look you liked ♥️ thanks for watching!

  146. I like the dress with the blazer and belt best. I would have never thought to use white tops with a maxi that has no white in the pattern. I hit the subscribe button because I am looking for a wardrobe thats not capsule exactly, but something to get the most mileage out of my clothes, rather than 50 pieces that just take up space.

    1. Dawn Pren hi Dawn, so glad you found the video interesting! you got it – I talk about capsules and minimalism but don’t believe in counting pieces or following hard and fast rules – just being more mindful and conscious about how we consume and shop for clothing so that we use less and end up with a smaller more curated closet. I hope you enjoy the channel – thanks so much for subscribing:)

  147. Tip:
    whenever u wear maxi do tie ur hair up into a bun it’ll give some height to u (I hope u all understand what I’m saying :p).

    1. Yes bt what about the helmat 😩

    2. What if you are already tall
      Is it necessary

    3. It’s great to have longer hair, for additional styling versatility! My mood and outdoor temperatures usually are deciding factors for wearing my long red hair up or down. 😊 Thank you for this video. I have many maxi dresses in solid colors and patterns. 😊

    4. ooh yes – good one! Thank you for sharing and for watching! xx

  148. Really helpful!

    1. Carol Melancon wonderful! Thanks for watching Carol!

  149. I am new to your channel. I loved all of the styling looks. Gave me some wonderful ideas.

    1. Jan Jentz hey Jan, that’s great to hear I’m so glad you found some ideas in there ☺️ thanks for watching! 😘

  150. Love love love urban chic. I would have never thought to put a tee over my maxi, let alone then belt it. Brilliant. And I kept seeing the knotted look, but never could figure out how it was done. Love #8 elevated, too.

    1. yay! That is one of my faves too – so glad you found the video helpful:) Thanks for watching! xx

  151. Hi Alyssa, great timing for this one. Love the white tee, can you tell me where it’s from?

    1. Thanks so much for watching Elizabeth! The tee is very old Joe Fresh, but Everlane makes some beautiful staple white tees:)

  152. Wow! Mind blown! I see new outfits in my closet without even shopping! Thanks for the inspo!

    1. Yes!! That’s what i’m after on this channel! Glad you found some looks you like and thank you so much for watching! xx

  153. you keep hiking up the skirt

    1. Yes – it is long and I want for people to be able to see the shoes 🙂 Thanks so much for watching!

  154. Urban chic was a favorite, as well as elevated, preppy vibes, layered (I would go with a flat, because that’s more my style, instead of the sneakers) and cinched and chic. Thank you for sharing all of your inspiration!

    1. Oh yes, a flat would work super well too – thanks for watching! xx

  155. Clever girl! 👏👏

  173. How about different ways to style an above the knee denim dress. 🙂

    1. Oooh that is a specific one! I don’t own an above the knee denim dress but if I find a denim skirt or dress that fits the bill I will try! That’s a great staple. Thank you for watching! xx

  174. You’re just incredible with versatility!

    1. aw that is very sweet, thank you so much for watching! xx

  175. This was great–I loved it! I really appreciated how you showed us how you actually knotted and looped things like the dress and the belt to achieve different looks. That’s just really helpful to me–so many times I see a styling video and don’t necessarily know how they made something look just so. Thanks!

    1. Great! I’m so glad you found those tidbits helpful 🙂 Thank you so much for watching Lisa! xx

    1. ooh i loooove the vintage concert tee idea! Thanks for sharing! xx

  207. Another GREAT video! LOVED them all! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. So glad you liked! Thanks for watching! xx

  208. LOVE this video…to death! Summer is when my Frida Kahlo muse arrives on warm southwest breezes. It is time to bring out my FULL OUT FRIDA wear…which means…maxi dresses and skirts. My western Santa Fe style and Cali-girl Bo-ho also is on full display. Towards fall, my style turns more to the clean lines of Japanese styling and Twenties inspiration. All these looks are amazing. I am 5’2″ and 1/2 inches tall….so I wear wedges & boots with heels with my maxi dresses. I also go for arm coverage as they are not what they were in my forties. I am not one to expose the gravy-like bits of my body…each to their own. YOU however are rocking every one of these looks. A lot to admire here. Keep up the incredible stylings!

    1. @Lisa White I am so sorry to hear of these friends of yours. While I can not fully relate – I “lost” friends mostly due to moving – for me, too, friendships take a long time to grow, and sometimes are hard to come by. You do sound like a very interesting friend to have! Wonderful for those who are friends with you. 🙂

    2. I like to read and write, but my career was in teaching. I am now retired. I was an art major with a minor in teaching, social science, and business. My graduate degree is in mathematics. I am very well read and a lover of poetry, Shakespeare, great literature, ancient philosophers, art, opera, and jazz. I did have a blog, but it was too much work (LOL). I still have an IG account. I enjoy the conversation and company of women who have similar interests. I enjoy engaging with others in the comment section. My entire account was so I could document my outfits. Then, I found I enjoyed the company as my closet friends lost their battles to ovarian and breast cancer. Friendships take a long time me me to grow! If you want to see me…my IG page is @fridainmycloset

    3. Lisa! I love your descriptions first of all, are you a writer? And love how you have a different style aesthetic for each season! I’ve never thought of dressing that way before, love it! Thank you as always for sharing and showing the love! Hope you have a great week! xx

  215. Almost 8000 subscribers Alyssa! What did I tell you!
    Fun styling tips! Always a pleasure.
    I also knot on the outside to create more shape and to shorten the length in the front. Easier to walk. Sometimes I use a vintage sweater clip in the back to cinch the waist.
    Love your dress, especially the sides. Sexy! Love the color too. Thank you Alyssa!
    Have a great rest of the weekend!

    1. Jeannette Mann thank you so much for your support Jeannette! I love that idea of using a vintage sweater clip to cinch the back! Thanks for sharing that tip and for watching 🙂 always appreciate it 🙂 I hope you have a great week as well! xx
