HOW TO MAKE MAXI DRESSES WORK FOR WINTER

I had a “I have nothing to wear” moment this week, so I rummaged through my spring/summer wardrobe that I stored away in two large-sized luggages in my closet. It was very exciting going through my colourful collection and had an instant inspiration with an old timeless maxi dress I resuscitate every now and then. So that’s when I had the thought, “how do I make this work for winter?”

Here’s how:

Layers, layers, layers. It’s cold out, so layering up is the only way to brave the frigid weather. Begin with the star piece, the maxi dress. Then style it with a jacket, sweater or cardigan. I did this crop jacket to elongate my petite body because a long jacket would be overwhelming. Next, protect your legs. Stay warm with nude, sheer or opaque tights – whichever you’re in the mood for. Lastly, keep your feet toasty with ankle booties, knee-high or even a pair of oxfords if there isn’t much snow on the grounds.

P.S. don’t forget to bundle up with a scarf and hat!
