Style Advice of the Week

Most people never wear dresses apart from spring, summer and formal events. Fall and winter never seem to give us dress-wearing weather. Showing off your legs is the last thing you would want to do during the fall and winter seasons. This seemed to be the case against wearing dresses until a couple seasons ago when the maxi dress was revived and became hot and happening. Still, a maxi dress remained an object of summer fashion until this season. Many maxi dresses are becoming increasing popular to wear during the colder season if paired with the right clothes and accessories. Most maxi dresses are tank dresses and, therefore, acquire outerwear to be a part of the outfit.

This Fashionista found the perfect piece of outerwear to wear with her gray maxi dress. She decided on a simple jean jacket that was perfect for the sunny but breezy fall weather. She added more warmth to her outfit by accessorizing with a camel coloured knit scarf. She continued to differentiate her maxi dress as made for fall instead of summer in her pairing of leather lace-up boots with her dress.

You may have noticed that this Fashionista’s maxi dress is not long enough to fall right to the ground and, instead, it stops right at the ankle. A dress with a similar length and versatility can be found at Aritzia. The dress’s length also makes any shoes you wear visible. To get a pair of similar boots as this Fashionista, head to Steve Madden for these brown boots. For the perfect fall transition of the maxi dress, opt for this jean jacket by rag & bone.
