I simply LOVE wearing maxi dresses in the fall. Well anytime really, but especially in the fall. Can you guess why? It might have something to do with the fact that I can layer the hell out of them without anyone knowing or vice versa. That’s right, you can’t tell in these images, but I am fully layered beneath these maxi dresses.

Alright enough with the dresses and onto why I actually love wearing maxi dresses in the fall. To start, I love the ability to layer them whether it’s underneath or on top, you can’t really go wrong with either option. For me, I decided to go with layering from the inside.

Other things you can do to make maxi dresses work in the fall include (don’t be afraid to combine some of these) :
- Throwing on your fall or winter coat
- Wearing a thick turtle neck underneath
- Wearing a knitted sweater over it
- Wearing a blazer
- Cozying up with a chunky scarf or poncho
- Wearing it with a fur jacket and sneakers
