the daymaker diaries: how to style a maxi dress

Posted on 26 July 2023

here at zoco, we’re all about trendy pieces that can be dressed up or down. so, naturally, we’re allergic to dresses with limited styling options. that’s why we set out to create the ultimate casual maxi dress with fierce formal potential. cue: the zoco daymaker dress.

don’t be fooled, because this isn’t your typical maxi dress with sleeves. featuring a “flattering-for-all” fit + various color/pattern options, she makes the question of “who do maxi dresses look good on?” irrelevant. (because the answer is everyone, duh). even more, the versatility of the daymaker can take you from brunch with the girls to errands with the kids, + anywhere + everywhere in between.

although “effortless styling” is practically woven into the daymaker DNA, we’ll take any excuse to share our favorite ways to wear her. so, without further ado, here’s how to style our must-have maxi dress for any occasion.

subtle flex, but did we mention that our black daymaker dress is a zoco exclusive color? this rendition was essential because every woman needs a black maxi dress for those times when she wants to look “dressed-up” but not too “dressed-up.” (aka: date nights).

it doesn’t matter if it’s mini golf or dinner + a movie, just throw her on with a pair of sneakers + scrunched ankle socks for the perfect date night look. for accessories, you can go minimalistic with simple gold jewelry, or you pop in some color with a bright bag + a funky hair clip.

fancy brunch // bridal shower outfit idea

from sunday brunches + cocktail parties to baby showers + bridal showers, there are many occasions that call for semi-formal attire. fortunately, there’s no event where the daymaker can’t slay.

another zoco-exclusive color, the daymaker in peach is one of our favorites for fancier gatherings. you can easily dress her up with a pair of strappy heels or ankle boots depending on the season.

since formal footwear is all it really takes to dress up this maxi, the other details are free game. just bring that cool girl confidence + sneak in a twirl or two to seal the deal.

concert outfit idea

concerts + daymaker dresses are a match made in zoco heaven. the comfortability + flowy silhouette make all of the jumping/dancing/singing along a million times more exhilarating.  

depending on the look you’re going for, you can style her with a denim or leather jacket. as for the shoes, choose a pair that will match the comfort level of the dress, like worn-in sneakers or practical boots.

oh, + fyi: we also have a shorter version of our white daymaker dress. so, if you’re not a “long dress” concert girlie, this white mini dress is the daymaker for you. style her with a pair of cowboy boots + a denim vest for the cutest summer concert outfit.

those are just a few of the countless ways to style our beloved daymaker dress. for more outfit inspo + up-to-date drop details, follow us on instagram (@shopzoco).
