A maxi dress is a piece that is often understated in a wardrobe.  It certainly doesn’t get as much love as it could.  Worn in the summer, it often goes forgotten when the weather turns cold.  And for good reason.  But I’m here to tell ya that there is a way to get more wear out of that maxi dress of yours!

I love a good dress that can go for miles and miles.  A good maxi dress worn different ways keeps my closet feeling fresh and new.  Chances are you already have a maxi dress in your closet.  You know, that floor-length billowy dress that you bought for that summer wedding or summer beach picnic?  I happen to have an animal print maxi dress that I thought could be a perfect transitional piece to turn into more than one outfit.

If you’re attending a summer wedding, a maxi dress is one of the best choices for an outfit.  It’s a one piece that has a beautiful flow and looks great on a number of women ages 20-60.   You can find a great printed maxi dress for anywhere from $60 to $160 almost anywhere you shop.

When it’s summer turning to fall, the nights can still be very warm.  If you’ve worn your maxi dress to a wedding and are figuring out how to wear it elsewhere, simply layer with a sleeveless vest and throw on some flats.  This totally changes the look of the maxi and you can now wear it out around town.  I paired my animal print maxi with tan colored accessories that compliment the colors of the maxi dress.

Where to Wear it ||

  • On a date with the hubby
  • Out with the girls for wine

Pair it With ||

  • A Vest

When the temperatures drop, don’t think you have to throw that maxi dress in a box until the next season.  To transition my animal print maxi dress, I simply pulled out my wool cropped sweater and layered it over my dress.  You can add a cardigan or sweater over your maxi dress and it immediately turns the dress into a skirt.  Pair with boots and accessorize with a hat and your maxi dress is fall ready.

Where to Wear it ||

  • Out to lunch
  • To the Farmer’s Market
  • Brunch
  • Around town

Pair it With ||

  • Hats
  • Chunky bangles, bracelets
  • Flats or other chic, yet comfortable shoe
  • Tote bags to hold all your accessories or shopping goodies
