Not just a summer dress

Now I know that I’ve been pumping up the idea that maxi dresses are pretty much a ‘must have’ for your summer wardrobe, but do not let me go without telling you that maxi dresses seriously can be worn all year long, and there are so many gorgeous fall and winter styles that you can find. fall maxi dresses - styles

Also, the maxi dresses you wear during the summer can be worn during cooler weather just by adding a cute denim jacket or cardigan, a scarf, leggings and boots, or all sorts of other things you might imagine revamping your summer dress with and turning it into something cold-weather worthy. Again, Pinterest is exploding with ideas for fall and winter maxi dress styles.

Where to buy them at the best price?

I talked in a previous post about all the best places I found to buy maxi dresses at a good price while not skimping on quality. Here is a link to that post: Cheap Maxi Dresses – the lowest prices, the best deals

In short,

Amazon for the win.

Thred Up if you’re thrifty.

Clearance sections if you’re in for a hunt!

Stock up on long ‘summer’ dresses for every season!

So yeah, I’m definitely an all year long maxi dresses advocate. If you have a summer dress that could possibly be transformed into a fall or winter dress during the cold seasons, than go for it! If the pattern of your dress is maybe a bit too summery, than maybe you would be better off shopping for a new dress. There are lots of fall and winter ones to chose from, or maybe you’ll want to buy a summer dress that you can easily adapt to be a winter dress, and than when summer comes you can wear it than too!!

I’d love to hear some feedback from you 🙂 What’s your favorite maxi dress style? Do you turn your summer dresses into winter and fall dresses, or am I crazy? If you need some more help or inspiration, feel free to drop a comment below!

Thanks!
