Winter Maxis

I'm sure I'm not the only one looking ahead to my spring outfits. The temps sure aren't ready for them, but I am. I wanted to find a way to incorporate those looks into winter. What better challenge than with a maxi dress?! 

I had no idea how to even begin this process, so I consulted a few other blogs to see how they did it. I found some great ideas!

Jessica and Hilary are two sisters who definitely know style. I loved that they gave more than just one look, and a ton of color combos to use. They also included maxi skirts, which is another thing I would love to winterize more. You can check out their whole post here

I liked the opposite about Ashley's post - the way she paired her neutrals was so great, and it gave the maxis a bit more of a wintery feel. Most of us have bright colored and spring patterned maxis, so I didn't want to just present these options alone. The shoes that she picked are a little out of my comfort zone, but I love how they look with the dresses! Read hers here

Hannah's options were my most favorite! I loved the look of the coat over the maxi, without making it look too drab. Her jacket choices were just so great. Not to mention, they all just have such a chic look about them. The booties were an excellent choice for winter shoes and a summery dress. I highly suggest her post, which you can find here

What are your favorite ways to bust out your spring clothes early, and give them a winter vibe? 


  1. I love layering maxis with sweaters and jackets in the cooler months! I just can't stand to put them away after summer, they're so comfortable!! I love that red one!

  2. I think being able to layer a maxi in the winter or any other season is amazing!!! I usually wear mine with a jean jacket to help extend the life!!! Love them paired with a great blazer like you showed in the inspo photos! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. I've been layering some more springy tops under cardigans and blazers, I'm so ready for the seasons to change and to get into a spring wardrobe, unfortunately it feels like its a long way off!!

  4. I can't wait for spring just so I can ditch the tights and go back to all my fun dresses! I definitely will be whipping out the jean jacket to wear with them!

  5. Maxi's are such a go to for me--I can't wait for the weather to be just a little warmer so I can layer them with some light sweaters and leather jackets!


  6. Love them with the leather jackets!! I cannot wait to bust out my spring clothing!!

  7. I love them with a jean jacket! I especially love the one you have that's red (or orange) with the black and white top- soo cute!

  8. I love maxis! They are just do comfy and pretty especially if you dress them up like your photos suggest!

  9. Yes! I love a maxi with a cute blazer or denim jacket. Thanks for the outfit inspiration ;)

  10. These are such great inspirations. I have a couple that I want to wear and now that I have some ideas I can't wait to wear them!

  11. I love the way a maxi looks with a biker jacket, you've definitely inspired me with this post to dig mine out of storage before spring.

  12. Love the dresses, so pretty!

    God bless,

  13. I always forget to wear maxis during the winter.. there are a few that would definitely work, I just need to try it! Thanks for the inspo lady!

  14. I love the idea of wearing a maxi in winter! It's so surprising and if you layered underneath (hello fleece leggings!) extra warm!

  15. I just love bringing out maxis in the colder months! Loving all of this inspo!
