Think you have to put away your summer maxi dresses for the fall? Wrong! These colorful maxis are totally verstaile pieces to incorporate into your early fall ensemble. Maxi dresses can easily be brought into the fall, especially here in the South where it stays warmer longer. Maxi dresses have been super trendy for the past few seasons and are a great way to rock a funky, fun print. They can either be dressed up or down according to the accessories you wear them with!
This CollegeFashionista is making her fashion debut as I spotted her walking into chapter this week. She sports this vibrant blue strapless maxi dress but is able to incorporate it into her fall wardrobe. In order to get her super cool look, I recommend browsing Donna Morgan, which is a great and affordable brand. There are a ton of colorful strapless maxi dresses on her site (such as this one). If you want to see her pieces in person, they are sold at large department stores like Belk and Macy’s, too.
In order to make your maxi dress appropriate for fall, you must accessorize! Our CollegeFashionista of the week tops off her look with a basic black cardigan. To keep you from getting a little chilly on these cool fall days, I suggest browsing your nearest J.Crew Factory Store to find cute cardigans like these (and they will all be on sale, too). And do not forget to add some of your favorite simple jewelry pieces. Here, our Fashionista decides to wear her simple yet super chic watch. With loud maxi dresses, make sure to add basic jewelry that will not draw attention away from your favorite maxi dress.
Have fun embracing these last few weeks of warmer weather!
