How to Style a Maxi Dress for Fall

If you were to look in my closet you’d see about 15 maxi dresses. I’m not kidding. I’m obsessed with them. They are my staple for the summer, but I especially love learning how to style a maxi dress for fall. I actually based this upon the Piperlime Hi Lo maxi that is currently hanging in my closest begging me to wear it year round!

To make it more fall appropriate I’d add a warm cardigan, a pair of boots and a pair of tights, of course! On a side note, doesn’t this cardigan look so cozy?! It makes me want a cup of hot chocolate and to cuddle up in front of the fireplace.

And of course you could add color galore- think colorful tights, or shoes! Or a funky necklace! I love fall.

And you could save money buy shopping your closest. That’s one of my favorite things to do! I often forget what I have, so it’s like a treat each time I swap over my clothes!

What are your tips on how to style a maxi dress for fall?

Wedding Wednesday: The Maxi Dress


Wedding Wednesday

The maxi dress- it’s versatile, comfortable and you can dress it up or down. I think it makes a fabulous wedding guest for less dress! Plus, you can totally wear this one again and again!

This Jacquard Print Maxi Dress is great for the fall! The navy print is fabulous, isn’t it?!

Now, I don’t know about where you all live, but in Maryland, it’s kind of chilly. No worries! Throw on a cardigan, wrap, or blazer and some close toed shoes and you’re set! And, since the print of the dress does the talking all you need is minimal jewelry! You’ll look fab, but comfortable at the same time. That’s a win win in my book! I also love that it’s flowy, and not too tight, so you can dance the night away!

Casual Friday on a Dime: Maxi Dresses

During the summer I wear maxi dresses like they are going out of style. I love them, don’t you?! Most of mine are strapless, like the one below. I never in a million years would think that I could wear it work. Until now!

Block Off Maxi Dress, $34.99 (Available S-L)

Coral & Nude Wedges, $45 (Sizes 5-11)

Isn’t this maxi dreamy?!

A perfect maxi dress that has color blocking throughout with taupe and orange. This dress has a strapless look with elastic band at top for comfort and fit. Wear this gorgeous maxi with flat sandals.
  • 100% Polyester
  • Made in USA
  • Model wearing size small
  • Runs true to size

I think just adding a cardi and a cute pair of wedges really makes this work appropriate! And on a dime! Total cost, less than $100! And coral is such a great color that I think can be paired with so much- nude, gold, white, you name it! The possibilities are endless! Plus I have this short sleeve cardi in about 5 different colors, and I wear them all the time! I mean, heck, for $19.99, you can’t beat that!

(Can you tell my the exclamation points that I’m excited?!)

What do you think of wearing maxi dresses to work? I would now!

Maxi Dresses for Your Honeymoon (Or Beach Vacation)

Hive & Honey Chevron Striped Maxi Dress from PiperLime Type Z Liliana Maxi Dress

We have written about maxi dresses being the perfect honeymoon dress on a few separate occasions. Maxi dresses are easy to pack and require a minimal amount of thinking. They’re versatile and can be worn casually or more formally with the adjustment of your shoes and accessories. Heck, you can even throw a maxi dress on over your bathing suit and scoot out the door.

I was browsing around last night and spotted the two maxi dresses above, which I thought would be fantastic options for a beach honeymoon or any sort of beach vacation.

Right: Type Z Liliana Maxi Dress from – $35.60

Wedding Dress for Less: Rachel Pally Aurora Maxi Dress

Rachel Pally Aurora Maxi Dress

I think this Rachel Pally Aurora Maxi Dress could make a fantabulous wedding dress! It’s simple, yet elegant and you could totally play it up with some awesome jewelry. I’m a total fan.

A wide neckline adds a graceful drape to this long, flowing jersey dress. Pleating crimps the bodice at the waist, and the skirt falls to a floor-skimming raw hem. Gathered elastic cuffs at 3/4 sleeves. Unlined.

My favorite thing about the dress is the jersey material. It sounds so comfortable! You are going to be in your wedding dress for hours, so why not be comfy, right?! And the cream color is just right.

I think this dress is also super flattering. The material doesn’t seem to be too clingy. The bad part is it’s currently only available in size S. On another note though, I’d read the review of it and it appears to run large, so keep that in mind!

And, if you aren’t 100% sold on the Rachel Pally Aurora Maxi Dress as a wedding dress, it could also pose as a swell honeymoon dress! It’s so easy to dress up or down that I think it’s extremely versatile.
