Unlike the East Coast, we don’t really get hit hard by Winter here in California. Thus, it’s been about mid-70’s as of late and when you’re over wearing pants (who isn’t), a maxi dress can work! Here are 3 ways Sam styled her basic black maxi dress for Winter:
Because we’ve been so fortunate with our weather, this is the least bundled-up version of the maxi. Which would actually work really well year-round! Layered with a simple flannel, the statement necklace and lace-up boots give the outfit some edge!
This second combo is GREAT for chilly winter days when you want something fast & easy to wear. Just throw on an over-sized sweater and your favorite scarf and you’re good to go! If it’s not horribly cold, you can get away with flats too 😉
This final outfit is pretty much a combination of the first two. The layering of a chambray top, cozy sweater and of course a statement necklace. Any printed or colored button down that contrasts with a neutral sweater is so great because it adds a pop of color. The statement necklace really hones in on the color palette of the look and the booties make it more playful!
