Transitioning A Maxi Dress for Autumn

Good morning everyone, today’s post is on transitioning a maxi dress from summer to autumn. This way I get the most use out of my dresses and this can apply to so many dresses. It’s all in how you style the dress, layering is a must for this. The pieces I include are a blazer, a pair of sneakers/trainers and a pair of boots. So take a scroll down and take a look at how I transitioned my white maxi dress for autumn.

Right so a blazer instantaneously transforms this maxi dress into a perfect autumn look. Like I mentioned earlier layering is a great way to transition dresses into autumn/winter. So you could alternatively add a roll neck jumper under the dress which would also work really well. This blazer if from RTA Brand, it comes in a slightly oversized style. It’s one of my favourite blazers I absolutely love it as I can style it up or down!





The next Item to style with my maxi dress is a pair of white trainers for those not so cold autumn days. They are perfect for everyday wear and running my daily errands in. This pair is from Superga and I have worn them to death and am in need of a new pair fairly soon!





Last but not least is a pair of boots for those chillier days, they are just wonderful to toughen up a dress. Taking a feminine dress and elevating it to an everyday outfit. Here are a selection that I have curated do let me know which of these you are loving. A few other pieces that I would add to my look would be a hat, in this instance I am wearing a baker boy one. My other favourite hat style is a fedora and then finish off my look with a pair of sunglasses.

    I went to my closet looking for my long blazer and it was nowhere to be found. I was devastated. I really wanted to wear it this fall. You look great.

    I have several blazers from H&M 2 years ago. Cannot wait to wear them again. But had never thought of pairing them with a dress. I have such fashion tunnel vision. Ugh!!

    Really like the contrast between that floaty feminine dress and the structed blazer and then the fun kicks!! Such a great transition look.

    I often like my summer dresses better, so I will wear them throughout the fall with a cardigan and boots!

    I love this transition for a warmer climate. I still think I’d freeze trying this out in the UK but the blazer/ maxi combination looks great on you!

    That is a beautiful white dress on you and you layer it so well! I like adding sneakers and jackets to my dresses when the weather starts to cool too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you are having a good weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ We went out to a market day this morning and the kids enjoyed the petting zoo.

    My only white shoes were at the wedding. Unfortunately, I do not buy light-colored shoes, because I am afraid that I will dirty them somewhere.

    You look lovely! It’s great when a piece can be transitioned between seasons!

    Just like you I also love to wear my summer dresses when it’s colder.
    It looks so good with a blazer and all theses tips are great.
    I love to match a dress with boots as well.

    The blazer with the sneakers and hat! You always put together the best combos that I would never think to do. It’s brilliant and looks so good!

    You look stunning in this white dress!

  24. October 23, 2021 / 2:01 am

    This is very chic. I like to layer button-downs and turtlenecks under dresses, and I like adding long cardigans and blazers too. A cropped knitted chunky sweater or vest would also look great over this dress. I’m definitely a chunky boots gal!

    The blazer really is a genius move. I loved how it completely transformed your maxi dress! This is such a gorgeous look.
