Shay Mitchell For The Coveteur Cements Her Goddess Status With A White Maxi Dress

When the camera’s are rolling, Emily Shields is all about comfort with an edge, but off screen, this Pretty Little Liar embraces elegance and pieces that show off her femininity. For Shay Mitchell's shoot with The Coveteur, the part-time lifestyle blogger posed in a white maxi dress and statement jewelry, lying on her side and running a free hand threw her dark locks in one photo. Just in case we needed anymore proof that Mitchell was a goddess, this photo inevitably erases all doubt.

Maxi dresses are just as easy to dress down as they are to glam up. If you’re anything like me, and feel forever stuck in elementary school calendar mode, September signifies fall, but the truth is, the season is still a few weeks out. Finding ways to transition your closet before unpacking the chunky knits and flannel tees is imperative from now until the 21st, and investing in a white maxi dress will serve this dual purpose.

With warm temperatures lingering (die heat, die!), let your dress flow freely and accessorize with layered bracelets and chunky necklaces, or pack on the delicate jewelry. Once cool nights turn to even cooler days, pair with a statement belt and light, open sweater. The bottom line: You need this white maxi dress in your life. If not for the sake of emulating a Greek goddess and the fashion icon that is Mitchell, for the simple fact that this piece is versatile and will serve your wardrobe well all year round.

Check out below how you can get Mitchell's look, and experiment the style to make it a permanent season staple.

The Dress

Is there anything more gorgeous than an all white gown with a sexy slit? Probably not.

The Necklace

If you're going for the goddess look, this is the set to grab.

The Chunky Bangle

Express Large Leaf Hinge Bracelet, $29.90, express.com

My favorite bangles are the thin ones you layer on so that every time you move, your wrist jingles. However, sometimes one chunky bracelet is all you need.

The Nail Polish

If you're going to get like Mitchell, having your nails painted is mandatory. In this particular look, the actress is rocking a fresh neon yellow mani that you can score with this nail lacquer shade.
