Bright, Colorblock, and Maxi!


C&C California Colorblock Maxi Tank Dress

Never thought I’d find a dress that could so perfectly combine all three trends. Because there’s a lot going on with the dress, I would match my undershirt/cardigan with the top lilac color (so it blends well), and pair it with a neutral-colored scarf and sandals.

What do y’all think? Way too much? How would you style it differently?
