While many Fashionistas think of the maxi dress as an easy summertime look, some styles of the trend can also be worn on chilly winter days. This week’s Fashionista shows us how simple it is to rock the trend in any season by picking an option with sleeves for warmth and adding a great pair of ankle boots.
To recreate this Fashionista’s look, start by shopping around for a striped maxi dress with sleeves. I love the nautical look of this Fashionista’s striped dress, which is made by Free People. The snug fit is also a good option for winter weather in order to prevent strong winter winds from blowing your dress around and exposing you to the cold. For an option similar to this Fashionista’s, check out this Teresa Stripe Maxi Dress by Alloy, available in coral and black.
By adding a pair of chic lace-up ankle boots and subtle jewelry to her look, this Fashionista styled her outfit flawlessly. Without trying too hard, this Fashionista’s look is perfect for a day in class, lunch with friends or a casual night out. To find a pair of boots similar to this Fashionista’s, check out this pair by Mango or these leather, lace-up ankle boots by Clarks.
Let’s not forget about this Fashionista’s gorgeous jewelry. By sticking with simple accessories, this Fashionista was able to incorporate a mix of jewelry pieces into her look. My favorite part of her ensemble is her silver, cuffed chain earring. This trend has been extremely popular these past few seasons and many stores such as Urban Outfitters offer several styles. For an affordable version of this Fashionista’s turquoise statement ring, visit J.C. Penney and shop their Turquoise Oval Ring.
