Fall is right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you need to put your dresses in storage just yet. Maxi dresses are the perfect length to keep wearing as the weather grows chilly. Keep them in rotation by learning how to add layers to the outfit. Here are some ways to stay cozy and stylish in your maxi dress this fall.
Top it With a Sweater
Toss a sweater over your maxi dress to stay cozy and warm. This is a fantastic way to mix patterns, colors, and textures. If the sweater is oversized, you can use a belt to keep the shape defined. Try different shapes and bold colors like this green turtle neck from & Other Stories.
Pair it With a Blazer
A long structured blazer like this one from ASOS can take the dress to a work-appropriate level while still being fun. If your dress has a pattern, consider a blazer in a solid bold shade that draws on one of the accent colors.
Throw on a Cape or Oversized Cardigan
I’m a fan of any excuse to curl up with a cozy oversized cardigan. There’s nothing better than being comfy in chilly weather. Wrap up in something like this lightweight Madewell Cardigan or a Cape Cardigan from Urban Outfitters for a bohemian look.
Put on a Leather Jacket
Nothing says fall like a fantastic leather jacket—fling one on over the dress to give it an edgy flair. A black leather jacket is a classic, but try out other colors and cuts. This one from Banana Republic is available in black, brown, and beige.
Tie it up With a Button-Down
Put on a button-down and tie it in front to get a completely different look. It separates the dress into two pieces. To avoid any bunching, make sure to tuck your shirt in all around. Depending on the neckline of your dress, you can leave a few buttons open. An excellent option for this layered look is Madewell’s Chambray Classic Ex-Boyfriend Shirt.
