A woman, reminiscent of Adut Akech (2), is seated on a concrete bench, wearing a flowing blue dress and a wide-brimmed white hat. She rests her arm on a cushion with an eye design, set against a plain white wall. Another woven cushion is visible beside her.

We Love Her Dresses… How To Dress Like Adut Akech

It’s no secret that Adut Akech has one of the most inspiring closets around – especially if you love color and want to elevate your summer dress lineup with some eye-catching shades! So, following her ever-stylish lead, I’ve put together an edit of striking designer silhouettes inspired by her most memorable looks to date. With designs by Zimmermann, Saloni, Free People, Ulla Johnson, and more, these high-quality dresses will last you for countless seasons to come. I’ve even found a swoon-worthy selection of designer shoes and evening bags to style them with!

Stock Your Closet With Brightly Colored Maxi Dresses Inspired By Adut

With so many stunning designer maxi dresses in her closet, it’s easy to feel inspired by Adut’s summery lineup. For example, I fell head over heels for her long red maxi looks the moment I saw them. Luckily dresses like the belted floral-print tiered silk-chiffon maxi dress by Erdem exist. Just like Adut’s dress, this one has the most beautiful long sleeves, a floaty, maxi-length hemline, and an all-over floral print. It’s perfect for spring and early but will work year-round! Style yours with stiletto sandals and a matching bag. Preferably, the Harness 90mm leather sandals by Alexander McQueen, and the Callie small velvet tote bag by Jimmy Choo. 

Meanwhile, with her unforgettable green silhouette on a recent red carpet in mind, I just had to add the Chandra ruffled plisse silk-georgette maxi dress by Saloni to this edit. Firstly, just like Adut’s this dress demands attention with its striking emerald hue. Secondly, the floor-length design and eternally flattering shape make it a must-have for future events. Style yours with a chic pair of silver designer heels. I highly recommend the crystal-embellished patent leather mules by Giuseppe Zanotti. Then, finish off your look with the dreamy, micro-bow-embellished leather tote by Self Portrait.

Romanticize Your Closet With Floral Printed Dresses

Another reason we love Adut’s closet? It’s filled with pretty printed designs that are ideal for spring and summer. Taking inspiration from her puffed sleeve floral dress, I couldn’t help adding the Eden, shirred gathered cotton-blend mini dress by Ulla Johnson to this shoppable edit. The quintessential summer dress, it will be a go-to all seaosn long. The best part? You can easily style it up or down. So, wear it with heels for dinner dates and evening events. Or, pair it with sandals and a cute designer tote bag for low-key weekend plans where you still want to look your best. Finally, I recommend styling this dress with the Clover buckled jute slide by Gabriella Hearst and the Saloon crochet shopper tote by Weekend Max Mara for maximum style points
