“How To Transition Your Maxi Dresses From the Summer to the Fall Season”


Today I want to share with you all some style tips that I have been thinking about all week. As I was scouring through my maxi dresses earlier in the week I realized that I don’t want to put them away for the Fall season. I must admit, they’re my go-to outfit in the Spring/Summer seasons. I just throw on one of my everyday maxi’s, which happen to be from the Miss Tina collection, and a pair of flip-flops or sandals and I’m on my way. Even if I’m doing an ‘Outfit of the Day’ post on another item, I sometimes switch into a maxi once I’m done taking those pics for that particular post. But to transition a maxi into the Fall season I would suggest first of all wearing one that is made of a little thicker quality material, or add a long slip underneath it if the maxi isn’t lined already. So with that said, here are a few ways and tips to carry the maxi dress over into the Fall season:

– Add a denim jacket or denim shirt

Top it off with a chunky sweater

– Wear it with a pair of cute boots or hot pumps

– Pair up with a great scarf

– Accessorize with a statement necklace

– Throw on a long-sleeved shirt over top of the maxi dress

– Accentuate your maxi dress with a wide belt (Maybe wear the belt over the long-sleeved shirt)

– Wear with a blazer or leather motorcycle jacket

(Below) Some of my fave Maxi Dresses in my closet already that I plan to wear with one of the transition styles that I mentioned above:
