Learn how fall maxi dresses are a great way to make an impression on others

Layering the Right Way

Dress temperatures are on the rise, but it's not time to ditch your maxi dresses! Dress season can be a challenge for women who have a more petite frame. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to wear maxi dresses through the fall and winter months, making them appropriate for all body types.

The best way to wear a maxi dress this fall is to layer it with other pieces in your wardrobe. In the summertime, you can wear a maxi dress with a pair of sandals or flip-flops and add a scarf or belt around your waist. But during the cooler months, it’s time to rock your maxi dress with some other accessories like sweaters and jackets. The sweater will add warmth to your outfit but will also cover up those areas where you might have been showing off more skin than usual. This is a perfect way to wear a dress without having to bundle up, but still, look cute and chic.

Find the Right Jacket

Add layers such as sweaters or jackets on top of your dress to give it that cozy feeling we all crave during the fall months! We've got a few ideas for how you can layer your dress for maximum effect!

  • Leather Jacket

A leather jacket is an easy way to add some sophistication to any look. If you're looking for something more casual, try pairing one of these leather jackets with some jeans or leggings.

  • Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a classic piece that works well with everything from jeans to a maxi dress. It's comfortable and versatile, so it will be in your wardrobe for many seasons to come. Wearing a denim jacket over the dress creates an effortless yet trendy look. A denim jacket is one of the best ways to go from warm weather to cool weather without sacrificing style.

  • Cardigan

Sweaters are another great option for pairing with maxi dresses during the fall months. They're cozy and soft, but still, look polished enough that they won't make you feel like a marshmallow. And they come in so many different styles that there's sure to be one that works with your dress or top! Hence If you're feeling bolder, try adding a sweater over top of your favorite maxi dress. This way, you can still wear your favorite outfit without having to worry about taking it off at night because it's too hot!

Add Layers Underneath

If you're feeling extra warm and cozy, throw on some tights, leggings, or high-knee socks underneath one of these maxi dresses! They'll keep you warm while still looking cute and stylish! The best part about wearing a maxi dress is that it's easy to layer up or down depending on the season. For the warmer months, going sleeveless might be more comfortable than wearing a long-sleeve dress. If it's cold out but not too cold, throw on tights instead of leggings.

Change the Dress Style

If you're feeling a little frumpier in the fall, don't despair. There are plenty of ways to dress up your fall maxi dress. Think whether or not you want to change the style of your dress. If it's a long sleeve maxi dress, you may as well get rid of them because they're just going to get in the way when you're wearing boots or leggings, but if you're a more conservative type of person, then keep them.

If you have a shorter version of this type of dress, try wearing it over leggings or sweatpants instead of tights, and they'll be warm enough that they'll still work in the winter months. You can also wear a shift dress under your maxi if it's long enough and if it covers your legs enough that you don't need tights underneath it.

If you're going to be outdoors, consider adding a scarf or some other accessory to make sure you don't freeze. Don't overdo it though, you still want to look put together when wearing maxi dresses.

Pair it off with some Flats or Boots

Flat sandals with a long maxi dress will make you look taller and more slender. You can wear them with a pair of ankle boots to add sex appeal to your look. If you want something more casual, then you can go with a pair of trainers instead. In the winter, you'll want to go with something more substantial like leggings or boots once again. For spring and summer, I would suggest keeping things simple with a pair of sandals or wedges — anything that gives you a bit more height without making you look like you have giant feet!

Adding layers and changing up your regular style will transform any maxi dress from a summer dress to a fall maxi dress

If you love your maxi dress and would just like to wear it in another season, there is nothing that says you can't. It is your style, after all! Plus, maxi dresses are always popular. And now they're available in fall colors, too, so they're even more versatile. Just remember to pair it with a cute cardigan or blazer if you want to go out looking professional, cold-weather appropriate, or conservative.

Therefore, if you have your heart set on a maxi dress, try out the ideas above. Once you really dig into your fall wardrobe, the possibilities will abound. After all, once fall comes, people like to call summer "summer" to remember those good days. While you're freezing your behind off, think back to coveting fall dresses in a longing way and realize that they are probably as easy to wear as they should be!
