A Winter Dress

Maxi skirts and dresses are one of my favorite things to wear.  They add a touch of glamour and elegance to everyday outfits, and you can find me living in them in the summer months.  However, when winter rolls around, they generally go into hibernation.  But this year I'm determined to keep my favorite floor-grazing frocks in heavy rotation.  Below are some inspirational looks and some trends I'm dying to try.

Winterizing Your Maxi 

  • The most important thing is proportions!  Take a look at yourself in the mirror and make sure there isn't too much going on.  Define your waist so you don't look like you're swimming in a sea of fabric.
  • Layers are key.  Throw on a button down over your favorite maxi, then a leather jacket.  Play around with it!
  • Mix materials.  Pair a chunky wool knit with your airy, chiffon skirt and finish it off with tall riding boots.  The more contrast the better. 
  • Invest in a simple long sleeve maxi that can simply be worn with tights and booties.  Afterall, it's the ease of a maxi dress that makes it so great!  I really want this dress and know I would wear it all the time!
