The Summer-to-Fall Maxi

by jill manoff

Get ready to wear some of your dresses to the max, because your go-to summer style is set to trend through fall. This season and next, it’s all about the maxi—in an abundance of prints and colors that span the rainbow. The key to taking it from sunny days to cooler temps? Just a little layering and some great accessories. We’ve got your guide.

The Summer-to-Fall Maxi

For Summer: Take It Easy
We consider the maxi summer’s one-piece wonder because it doesn’t take much (Just add sandals!) and looks chic every time: Wear it from a beach day to date night and everywhere in between. Want to change it up? Add a stack of bangles or a straw fedora.

For Fall: Tier Up
Come fall, think of a maxi dress like jeans-and-a-tee; it’s the foundation from which to build on, and most everything goes: Play up its ‘70s vibe with a fitted blazer and a floppy hat, or keep it super-casual with a scarf and denim jacket. Think you can handle three trends at a time? Add some tough moto boots and an army-green topper.
