3 Ways To Layer It: The Maxi Dress

We all need that one piece in our closets. The one we can count on.

Each of us should have something in our closets that makes us feel amazing no matter what. A versatile piece that can be thrown on for work, for an event, or just to hang out… something that makes a statement, but can easily be transformed depending on how you style it. For me, that piece has always been a flowing maxi dress. Whatever my mood, a long dress just feels right, and as we come into fall I can’t wait to layer them up…

Dress 3 Ways

In my opinion, long dresses look amazing on everyone. They’re comfortable without looking like pajamas, and surprisingly versatile. Once the weather cools off, layer on a fitted sweater to give the impression of a top and skirt combo – perfect for a casual weekend event.

Dress 3 Ways

I can’t get enough of dramatic texture for the upcoming season, especially big, fluffy cardigans. Throw an open jacket or cardigan over your shoulders and a pair of over the knee boots on your feet to show off the dress while still staying warm.

Get the look: Dazed Dream Maxi Dress, Sweet Disposition Jacket, Ella Hat.

Dress 3 Ways

Break out the layers by topping off your dress with a long-sleeve henley and oversized sweater. Keep things dressed-down with a pair of classic Chucks on your feet.

Love wearing my maxi dresses into fall with boots and sweaters. I always leave a few in my closet to remind me that summer will be back soon.

I’ve been plotting the maxi dress I’m getting tailored when I go back to India – black gauze with a sweetheart neck.
