One Maxi Dress for Four Seasons

I received great responses from my lace dress roundup post, so I figured why not continue? Perhaps this ways to wear series will become a semi-regular feature. Thank you Elle for letting me copy your way it five ways idea. Sometimes it's just easier to see how versatile an item can be when outfit images are placed side by side.

Today's featured item is a maxi dress worn four ways, suitable for every season in a year. That's not to say that the spring outfit can't be worn in the summer for example, or the winter outfit will work for everyone's climates. I just thought One Maxi Dress for Four Seasons sounds more interesting than 4 Ways to Wear a Maxi Dress.

Spring: After a drab winter, accessorizing with bright colors only seem appropriate. But just in case there's still a chill in the air, it's nice to have a sweater handy.

Summer: This is the time to wear maxi dresses as is, with no extra layers. I felt the dress was too plain by itself, so adding statement jewelry solved that issue.

Fall: With the weather still fluctuating as summer transitions to fall, a light cardigan is easily removable for warmer days or worn for cooler nights.

Winter: Scarves and sweaters are essential cold weather accessories. Flats might not be the most appropriate footwear, but anything closed-toe that's half-hidden under the dress should do.

  3. I love this! I'm pretty obsessed with maxi dresses, but I never know what exactly to do with them once the temp drops. Somehow i always forget I can put a sweater over the first half of the dress. Great way to transition this!

    1. Yup, I love layering a shirt, sweater, jacket, anything really, over dresses to turn them into a "skirt." I'd probably have half the outfits on the blog if I didn't do this, haha.

  8. Awesome! I dont think people give any love to a maxi dress in Fall or winter. I know i packed mine up and stored already. Strips are so versatile and can be worn all year round. Really like your maxi.

    1. Sadly, I didn't. But I love a good pun, so I wish I had known that and went for "A Maxi Dress for All Seasons" instead.

  14. Wow, you inspire me. I packed my maxi to donate 'cause I have that exact same stripes and don't see much use out of it, now I can take it out and try for fall to see if I can keep it.
    Thanks a lot.
