US TOO! It’s such an easy and comfortable way to look cute in the spring/summer. But what about the fall/winter season? Do you put it away and wait for the weather to warm up again? Well, you don’t have to! Check out these 4 fun ways to style a maxi in cooler weather.

Brunch With Friends

A little fringe and a wool hat goes a long way! Add a long cardigan to a short sleeve maxi dress to keep it warm and season appropriate. The Marsala hat is the perfect way to incorporate the color of the year into your look.


Date Night Out

Add some edge to your elegance! Take one of your lighter, more flowy maxis and add a cropped moto jacket and some tall boots for a night out look with a rocker chic vibe. A long statement necklace and a bold clutch will turn your look up to 11.


Cozy Running Errands

Let’s be honest; life isn’t all glamorous. Some days, you have to hit the grocery store, the dry cleaners, and the post office….. and maybe have time for a movie with a friend. On those days you need comfort and style. Throw an off-the-shoulder sweater over a bodycon maxi with some flats, a scarf, and a cute crossbody bag to look great while getting stuff DONE.


Taking a Day Trip

Taking a day trip to a music fest, or a small town for shopping usually means one thing; lots of WALKING.   Wear a long sleeve tee over (or under) your maxi, belt it at the waist to add some style, and throw on a backpack & sneakers for comfort and durability. You’ll look great and feel fabulous!
