To achieve a feminine and breezy look, a flowy maxi dress may be something that you need. Simply wear a white belted cardigan over a grey breezy maxi dress.

The outfit consists of an olive green shirt dress, a grey oversized knit sweater cardigan and grey suede heels.

The result is equally good, but with a very different style, a more cozy and friendly style.
