Winterized Maxi....

January 11, 2011

I have been trying to make the most of my wardrobe and that includes reworking my maxi dresses during the cold winter months. Here are some helpful steps I aways follow:

1. Pick a muted solid color- try black, blue, brown, etc. and leave the brighter colors for the warmer months

2. Cover your top half with a comfy sweater, cardigan or even put a turtleneck underneath your dress

3. If you wear a cardigan or turtleneck, try belting it to create a more defined waist and give the maxi dress more shape

4. Try boots, clogs or booties to further winterize the look

5. Accessorize with a scarf for more color

  13. Love that you gave instructions since I need help maximizing my wardrobe year round. Love the color combo here too, which seems pretty seasonless.
