How to Style Maxi Dresses in Winter

22 Nov

This post is for all of you maxi-dress lovers! Although I bet you would love to wear your bright floral dress again this year, I recommend to go for cooler colors and prints for the winter. Sometimes it can be hard to put your favorite and comfortable maxi dress to the back of your wardrobe once the cold weather starts. So stop right there and consider it for the winter!

There are many ways that you can pull off your favorite maxi dress in the winter. Wear your dress with a chunky cable knit sweater over the dress finished with desert ankle boots. Or try wearing it with a shearling aviator style jacket with wedge ankle boots. Try the long-line and boyfriend blazer over your maxi with heeled boots. If you want to make your outfit more edgy and cool go for your favorite leather jacket and flat buckle boots! If you aren’t into boots then put some flats on! Don’t forget your scarf!

This is another user’s set

I love how she added a simple gray sweater over this pretty blue and gray maxi. She also added a scarf for a bright pop of color. Scarves and maxi dresses are just meant to be! She added a casual pair of gray keds. Through on your favorite white or black hat and gloves and go grab a cup of Coffee.

I created this on a lovely site called Polyvore

I love how Diana styled her dark blue polka dotted dress with a camel coat. It is such a casual yet fashion forward look.

This fabulous blogger managed to pull of this dark floral dress. It is good for winter because the dress it’s self is not happy and bright, therefore it depends on the type of floral dress you have. She topped it with a simple jean jacket. She could wear this dress with a brown or black leather jacket too if she was going to stay outside. If you will be inside then switch your warm coat for a jean jacket!

If you don’t know if maxi dresses are right for you or need more advice on how to wear them I did a post on maxi-dresses for the summer.

RULES:

1. Use winter accessories like scarves.
2. Don’t be afraid to wear hats and gloves!
3. Keep your waist with jackets and cardigans that flatter you around the middle.
4. Mix patterns with block colors.
