Lauren Conrad wearing Heartloom black and white maxi dress
I'm such a sucker for a great maxi dress. They're like ball gowns that you can wear on regular days. I swear, that's half the appeal. And this graphic black and white maxi dress that Lauren Conrad was spotted wearing while out in New York City is just a little more fun than most.

Lauren's sleek maxi dress has an abstract print that, at least in these pictures, reminds me a bit of a De Kooning painting. The rough swaths of black and white on a beige background take this dress from precious to daring. It's a great look for those Spring days when you just aren't feeling the bright color thing.

Want to steal Lauren Conrad's black and white maxi dress style for yourself? She's wearing the Heartloom Anthea dress. This cotton/ silk blend dress has a knotted racerback detail (yes, you will have to break out the convertible bra) with a drawstring waist, which I love for its customizable fit. This lined dress could work well for both day and evening with just a simple change of shoes and accessories. I'd like to see it with an arm full of metallic gold bangles and cuffs for night... just picture it. Love.
