The Look: Maxi dresses can be a tough trend to pull off, but they're perfect for a warm-weathered day. Breezy and comfortable, they function as a wearable, but still fashionable, piece to wear while perusing shops and restaurants all day. Jessica Alba adds a little edge with a leather vest and tousled hair, giving a more rocker feel than the typical Bohemian vibe that maxi dresses exude, which we definitely dig.

Getting It Right: To offset the flowy feminity of this black-and-cream printed ModCloth dress, throw on an urban-inspired vest. The key is balancing the two styles without going overboard in either direction. This means adding simple extras, like a small, classic purse and versatile, beaded sandals. To keep the look from looking bland, wear a graphic, gold necklace for a little oomph. Finish it off with a shiny, neutral lip color to give you extra polish and flair.
