Happy Friday, darlings! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones! I’m SO glad you stopped by today because I’m demonstrating to you that… YES, you CAN wear this summer style staple during winter!

Maxi dresses, as we all know, are not only one of the most comfortable, flattering, and forgiving items of clothing to wear, but they’re also surprisingly versatile…in other words, why pack away your cute summer maxi’s just because winter is here?

The first trick is to think of your maxi dress as a long skirt! Simply look for layers you would normally pair your skirt with. Secondly, try to rely on boots, tights, or leggings to keep you cozy as the temperature drops. I added a faux fur vest to my dress to create an additional layer of warmth.

How would you style your maxi dress during winter?! I would love to hear from you!

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a fabulous weekend!
