I’m Patricia Mae Maristch aka @preppypublicist I work in lifestyle PR with my own company Piqued PR during the day and blog and podcast in my spare time. I love sharing my preppy yet sophisticated style, tips for entertaining in style and how I mix prints and decorate colorfully.
I’m thrilled to share with you three ways I'd style the Eliza dress. I was initially drawn to this smocked maxi dress because of the feminine floral print, flattering silhouette and those statement sleeves that give me total Bridgerton vibes! It’s surprisingly versatile too for my needs….
1 - Dress it down with a pair of sneakers
Tretorn are my personal favorite - and pull your hair back in a pony tied with a beautiful ribbon. Styled this way for travel or just a day full of errands.
2 - Keep it girly and sweet styled
like I did here with your favorite statement headband, go-to espadrille wedges and a ladylike day bag. I wear this lovely floral maxi dress like this for my work meetings or brunch with the girls on the weekend.
3 - Make it fancy for a garden wedding
by adding a pair of sandal block heels and a darling little clutch. I’d wear my hair half up, half down to show off a beautiful pair of earrings.
