Truly Transitional - The Maxi Dress

(all clothing in this post can be found on the topshop website!) 

The classic black maxi dress is a staple in most women’s wardrobes, with sandals and a sunkissed glow it gets us through many-a summer holiday! However, continuing with the theme of transitional dressing I wanted to show how I will be styling my plain black maxi to work for autumn and winter.

For autumn I went for a casual look, pair your maxi with a statement sweater to give it a sporty looking edge.  Slip on trainers are everywhere this season  and I love this faux furry pair from Topshop! To add a pop of colour to the outfit I decided to add a bright pink lip - if this is too daring for you try a nude gloss. 

When winter draws in its time to pile on the thick wooly jumpers, black tights and hand cream! There’s no reason why you can’t wear your maxi as a skirt in winter, it makes a nice change from the same old black jeans. Just pull on a thick jumper, and layer with tights for extra warmth I love this bag & boots combo - both Topshop, they match brilliantly and can be worn with almost any colour.

Well, that's all for now folks! So don't pack away that summer maxi just yet!
