Maxi and Midi Dresses: Elegance Meets Comfort

Maxi and midi dresses are not just for summer. In fact, they're perfect for fall, especially when styled right! Opt for darker/richer hues like deep greens, burgundies, and navy blues. Floral prints with a darker base also work wonders. Layer your maxi or midi dress with a denim jacket for a casual day out or a tailored coat for a more polished look. And if you really want to take the style up a notch, add a wide brim hat!
