Lemonade Inspired Maxi Dress

1

Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade came onto the scene a few months ago and inspired all of us in one way or another. Today’s look features a maxi dress inspired by Lemonade. Continue reading to learn more about the look.

Hey there lovelies!

Today’s look is very simple and earthy, something I’d wear to a street festival or picnic, and inspired by pretty much everyone’s fave….Queen Bey! Raise your hand if you loved Lemonade and still have it in rotation *raises both hands*. One thing I love about the visual album is how Beyonce had black women of all shades dressed in vintage, high class attire that also had a boho feel. When I found this maxi dress it definitely gave me AAAALLLLLLLL the Lemonade vibes. This was another gem I found at Ross!

This gorgeous soft white maxi dress is so perfect for the season and even into the fall. It’s slightly loose fitting which makes it light, airy and oh so comfortable! I wore this to a family BBQ and it was a huge hit. I find a maxi dress to be a great alternative to pants. When you’re going to be out in the cooler evening it’s nice to have your legs covered without the restriction.

One thing I love about this dress is the lace/crochet detail at the top. Overall, the dress is fairly simple but the detailing at the sleeves and around the neckline gives it a little extra edge. The detail in this dress immediately brought images of Lemonade to my mind and gave me the idea to put together a Lemonade inspired look.

I wanted to keep my accessories and makeup light so that my overall look would have a more earth feel. I’m wearing a couple of bangle bracelets pushed up to the middle of my forearm and drop earrings with a natural gemstone.

I completed my look with a brown suede chunky sandal. I wanted to wear a heel so the dress wouldn’t drag but nothing so high I wouldn’t be able to walk around. This shoe has a lower heel so it’s manageable to wear for a while if you wanted to take this look to a street festival or outdoor function.

I love drawing style inspiration from some of my celebrity faves! It helps to to expand my fashion horizons and re-purpose pieces I would have otherwise left doomed to the back of my closet. With Lemonade being such a standout piece of work of course I took note from the queen with the styles she portrayed in the visual album! I hope you all enjoyed this Lemonade inspired look and I encourage you all to add your own personal flare to a celebrity look you love as well!

Until next time!
