Much to the delight of many, maxi dresses are once again the go-to dress for this season, with many gorgeous new styles making their way into stores. From bold graphic prints to romantic, flowing silhouettes, these are some of your maxi dress options for this fall.
While quite a daring fabric to wear, semi-sheer chiffon lends itself beautifully to maxi dresses, as you will see if you have a look at the dresses by For Love and Lemons. With a plunging neckline and cut out detailing at the back, as well as a slit at the front, these dresses are chic and sexy, but still have a down to earth, bohemian vibe.
Off the Shoulder
Lisa Marie Fernandez is a designer that is always pushing the boundaries, but in a way that still never fails to perfectly complement a woman’s figure. With bare shoulders being another popular trend for 2016, the Rosie Off the Shoulder Linen Maxi Dress is at the height of fashion, and is designed to fall loosely over the body. With voluminous three quarter sleeves to give your arms some protection, this is an idea dress for fall, and can easily be styled with a scarf for when you need to keep your shoulders warm on a chilly day.
Bold, Graphic Prints
Maxi dresses that feature a bold print can really make a statement, and the graphic dresses by Diane von Furstenberg do exactly that. To give one of these dresses even more of an edgy look, pair it with some chunky jewellery and a cropped leather jacket, which will not only keep you warm, but also show off your dress’ silhouette.
Romantic and Floral
Romantic floral prints perfectly highlight the feminine qualities of a maxi dress, and just about every designer has a floral printed dress to choose from. The Floral Print Maxi Dress from Alice + Olivia features delicate straps that show off the back, even if a scarf is worn with the dress, while the cascading print on the floral Kirstin Sinclair maxi dress is definitely a show stopper.
Styling a Maxi Dress in the Fall
While maxi dresses may usually be a style worn in the spring and summer, there are many ways you can take your summer maxi dresses and style them so that they are appropriate for fall weather. Layering tights or leggings underneath is always an option, with even nude tights giving you an extra layer of protection without detracting from your look. Boots, whether ankle or knee length, also work well with maxi dresses, while a cropped leather jacket, or a fur vest, can easily be thrown on top.
Maxi dresses are an extremely versatile style to wear, and, when styled correctly, work brilliantly for the months of fall, and even into the early winter. Whether you opt for the sophisticated off the shoulder style from Lisa Marie Fernandez, or the soft and feminine pieces from For Love and Lemons, each of these options are right on trend, but have a distinctively unique appeal.
