Maxi Dress in the Fall


*This post was having problems publishing on Bloglovin' yesterday.  Apologies if you're seeing this twice.*

I pretty much plan to wear this dress with every single cardigan I own.  Bright yellow in the spring, navy in the fall.  Well, "fall," whatever that means here in San Diego.  (It was 80 degrees yesterday, and we turned on the AIR CONDITIONING.  Can you believe it?)  

Anyway, I tend to think of maxi dresses as pieces that are great for tropical vacations, but I think they can be worn in the fall too.  Maybe not in the rainy, snowy types of fall that some of you have, but in the milder ones, yes.  I have yet to try this, but I was thinking it could work with tights underneath, paired with ankle boots and a scarf if need be.  Or I might throw a sweater on top and make the dress look like a skirt.  

The first row below are dresses that I would try the same formula with in the fall.  I looooove the second dress and wanna snatch it up since it's 50% off, but it's basically my dress in lighter colors so I've gotta resist.  The second row are dresses that need a little less convincing that they could be worn in the fall, but they would easily be great in the spring and summer too.  

How would you wear a maxi dress in the fall?

  1. Ha, I've been wondering if you CAN wear maxi dresses in the fall/winter. I mean, it seems only right that you should be able to; they are essentially a giant blanket. Perfectly suitable for winter. I guess most maxi's I come across (and the ones I own) are relatively summer-y. I like this look though! Might have to take advantage of all the maxi's that are on mega sale everywhere now ;)

  2. What shoes would you wear with the dresses in the fall? I wore mine with sandals all summer. Would you just go with ballet flats?

  3. Hi Julie! Like I mentioned in the post I would try it with ankle boots in addition to flats like I'm wearing here. :) I think ankle boots would work depending on the skirt and/or depending on the ankle boot. Just gotta find the right combination, but if one combination doesn't work I wouldn't rule out the idea completely, if that makes sense.

  9. Maxi dresses are great for fall because you don't have to wear tights or shave! They are easy while still being warm and cute. Love yours!

  12. The first dress in the second row is my favorite. I already have a navy & oatmeal striped maxi dress -- but I can always use another right?

  19. I like Maxi dresses but they're always too long for me. Where can I find Maxi dresses for short people?

  20. I'm the same as you--love maxi dresses in every season, bc they're cool in the summer, but add tights or knee socks and boots (or even just dress shoes) and a cardi or jacket and they're good for winter, too. My office is kind of unpredictable weather-wise (tends to be freezing if it's hot outside, but may be rather warm if it's cold out), so layering like that keeps me from being way too hot or cold all day.
