Everyone loves a good maxi in the Spring and Summer but I feel come Fall and Winter I see so many less maxis on people. I’ve never really understood why maxis weren’t winter wear. They are floor length which gives you the option to secretly wear tights or panty hose underneath for additional warmth and can easily be worn under a jacket or sweater, ie great layering piece. This dress in particular is actually a heavy material as well.

I had it set in my mind that I was going to find some really cool, 70’s inspired, long sleeved maxi dresses this season and I’m not going to lie, unless I want to spend an arm and a leg the selection has been mediocre at best. Never one to be held down, I improvised. I have maxi dresses and I have tons of options with long sleeves; jackets, sweaters, shirts and even cardigans.

I decided to go with my chic, Bebe faux leather jacket for a few reasons:

  • It would keep the entire ensemble black which would give the illusion of being one piece from afar
  • The shoulder detail is so edgy and paired with faux leather its the perfect contrast to the soft crochet pattern on the dress.
  • The shoulder is also structured which balances out the flowy feel of the dress

  • This is such a great look. A great way to show how to transition a summer dress into a fall look. that big chessboard in the back makes the photo that much more fun.
