Ok, so we admit, wearing a maxi dress during the winter does seem a little insane, but it’s not as crazy an idea as you’d initially expect.
Maxi dresses are one of the most popular items in casual fashion and exude an astonishing amount of style when paired with the right accessories. Unfortunately, you might want to put the backless maxi away for this, as well as the thin-strapped one; we’re not miracle workers after all. Instead, if you’re experiencing some chilly weather in your area, try out a long-sleeve or knitted maxi for optimum comfort.
Of course, even a cozy knitted maxi alone isn’t enough to keep you warm when the snow starts falling. So, in today’s blog, we’ll be showcasing some of the best ways that you can accessorize your maxi to make a summer favorite part of your winter wardrobe.
The best way to stay warm in winter is by layering your wardrobe. Despite their warm weather-orientated design, maxis are marvelous for layering, with enough flow and looseness in their cuts to comfortably fit great pieces of clothing underneath.
One of the most valuable items for layering underneath a maxi is, of course – the turtle-neck. Much like how the maxi dress is iconic summer wear, the turtleneck jumper is vital fashion wear in the winter. Wear your favorite turtleneck underneath a maxi and you’ll be feeling cozy while never losing your fashion sense in the process.
Floor-length dresses often struggle to look good underneath a jacket of any kind, so finding a jacket to pair with your maxi dress can often be a challenge. Longline coats can often make you feel like you’re drowning in fabric, while cropped jackets feel out of place as well.
Thankfully, a waist-synching leather jacket is fantastic for maxi dresses, with the expanded shoulders and waist-high cut flattering your figure. Pair with a pair of leather ankle boots and you’ll achieve a casual-chic boho style with ease.
If you like feeling cozy in the winter then a fur (or faux fur) vest can be the ultimate piece of winter wear.
Of course, sometimes you want to be able to wear your fur vest with something other than a pair of jeans, which is where a maxi comes into its own! The fur vest/maxi dress combo is a time-honored look that gives off the perfect boho vibe. Simply complete the outfit with a pair of ankle boots and a winter fedora and you’ll be amazed by the results.
Shirts & Dresses
Finally, we’ll end this blog with another piece of summer wear. Shirt dresses are usually reserved for the summer like maxis, but the added button on a shirt dress makes them ideal as versatile layering pieces.
Combine a half-buttoned shirt dress with a turtleneck and a pair of cropped jeans, and you’ll soon be able to enjoy the color of summer wear during the winter. So if you’re tired of wearing the same dreary winter clothes again, then try out a shirt dress for an instant injection of color!
