How To Wear A Maxi Dress Through the Winter:

There are so many ways to put a Winter spin on some of your favourite Summer items. Such as wearing tights underneath your skirt or adding a polar neck to a maxi dress. Speaking of maxi dresses! Maxi dresses are surprisingly very wearable during the cold, Autumn/Winter months! So here are 3 ways to put a Winter spin on your Summer maxi...

Dress - Leaves of Grass, top - Vionnet, clutch - Anya Hindmarch, blazer  -Jack Wills, lipstick - Topshop in Hazard

  •  The first thing to know — it doesn't matter what color or what fabric your maxi is. Even if you're working with a sheer finish or a creamy white hue, you can give your dress or skirt a more apropos seasonal twist with the other pieces you add in. For instance, if you have a sheer maxi or one with a slit, layer it up underneath with tights for added warmth.
  • The most essential part of this look is how you top it off. Because the skirt and dress can feel floaty and it odds with the weather, anchor it with weightier, warmer pieces up top. Try a leather jacket and a cashmere pullover to offset the bottom half. If your dress has a slit, make it more daytime appropriate with a covered up jacket or a sophisticated blazer. Truthfully, these maxis work like a blank canvas, style them up with sweaters, furry vests, and heavier coats to shape them into unexpectedly seasonal outfits.
  • Think of your footwear as the key to taking the look from day to night. Your footwear plays a crucial role in setting the tone for this look — with a flat, biker boot or ankle boot, this look becomes casual and daytime-accessible; with a heeled boot you can walk the line from day to night; and with a sexier ankle-strap you give the look a night-out feel.
