As a fan of floral prints and maxi dresses, finding the right combination of the two is almost impossible, especially for this tall girl! So when I had the chance to design my own collection, I knew I had to include an amazing floral maxi, but instead of doing a traditional floral, I worked with Dia & Co’s creative team to create a custom print with a design studio in NYC. The print we came up with is based on my love of batik, kaleidoscope and ankara prints with some damask floral mixed in – a fresh take on fall floral.
Aside from a unique print, I included a scarf necktie in the design so it could be tied several different ways. My favorite is what I call the faux choker, achieved by criss-crossing the tie in front, before wrapping each side around to the back of the neck. Criss-cross again, then insert one end through the loop and pull to secure. You can tie it into a bow or let it flow loosely as well (More ways to tie a scarf neck in this post).
The Bianca Maxi also comes in two lengths: regular and tall, so if you’re concerned about hemming, you should be able to avoid any alterations with the right shoes and the right length!
